Infernal Burrito

MSI GX60 R9 M290X Worth it (for 1200 CAD)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is this laptop any good? It preforms almost as well as an ASUS laptop with 880m according to research. I need a mobile PC and I found this nice and fairly affordable laptop. Is it any good?  PS. Its less than half the price of any comparable laptop (in performance).

It's got an unbeatable price tag for the GPU that you get for it. 


Apparently the CPU is terrible compared to an i7 4700MQ though. I was going to get one if I saved up enough money and sold my LAN machine.
