This is the only place we found that has it for less than $975, and a fantastic deal for a PC gamer or anyone who wants some very serious performance from their laptop. With everything from a fast processor to dedicated graphics, there’s plenty of computing ability here to make just about anyone happy.
In limited quantities, NewEgg (at eBay’s site) is offering the MSI GE72 Apache264 Gaming Laptop for just $829.99. With free shipping, that easily trumps any price we could find anywhere for this one.
A wide view, 17.3″ 1920 x 1080 resolution display shows off beautiful images thanks to Geforce GTX 960M graphics from NVIDIA with it’s own 2GB of GDDR5 memory.
With speed and power to spare, the quad-core, Haswell version i7-4720HQ processor from Intel cruises at 2.6GHz and reaches 3.60GHz with Turbo Boost employed.
Multi-tasking and other memory intensive tasks won’t be a problem, thanks to 12GB of DDR3L 1600 pre-installed. If you want even more, you can switch out the slot with 4GB to an 8GB stick, making your total 16GB.
This MSI model connects via AC 3160 a/c wireless and offers Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity as well.
For storing your games, or any other files, you’ll have a 1TB, 7200 RPM hard disk drive at your disposal.
Since gaming laptops tend to produce a great deal of heat, the GE72 offers a system that employs dual fans and pipes that reduce heat to the processor and graphics card.
Even the keyboard is an upgrade over other laptops, with a 102 Key SteelSeries backlit elite-series keyboard at your disposal. The built-in subwoofer certainly isn’t something you find on most laptops either.
