Finally got a response from them, and it looks ... expensive. 35 pounds for shipping + 69 for the screen as they can't ship the screen to me so I have to ship the whole thing to them.

 

Also, one of my keys decided to spring out again after breaking its clips and they don't have replacement keys just the entire thing. There has to be some replacement keys somewhere, right? Cannot afford to keep replacing the entire thing as this issue happens way more often than it should ...

Is it the RGB keyboard or the white one?  Strange.

 

As for the screen that's a normal price.

RGB. Always seem wonky when it came to some keys, the clips on the keycaps are super fragile.

Huh the RGB one was fine for years for me, I'm not aware of majors issues with them.

Probably a combination of my poor typing habits and my frequent travelling. I guess I will bite the bullet for now and try to get my retailer to fix as many issues/upgrades to make it worthwhile since I can't find a display from somewhere I trust/cheaper.

So out of the laptops that have large batteries what is suggested? In addition does anyone have any long review or suggestions for something being used for work and gaming on a niche OS? I would be using this for work, and gaming since I now have to travel at least once a month. As of now the MSI gs65 has been catching my eye but not having ease of disassembly is kinda annoying for if I would want to upgrade storage later.

- VM

- GNS3

- linux

- gaming probably as high to something like DOOM 2016 or Quake Champions to emulation.

I am looking to get a ~$1500 laptop and I like the MSI GP65 with the default config. Previously I was considering the HP Omen 15t but the MSI offers a 2060 vs 1660 and 512GB NVMe SSD vs 1TB HDD. Are there any options that I might want to look at upgrading in the Xotic customizer? Also how does this line of laptops hold up over time if I use this for 4 or 6 years? Thanks.

If you have a Microcenter they have the PowerSpec 1520.  Otherwise there's the Eluk Mech 15.  The GP65 could be decent but I don't know all that much about it.

Hi guys, 

I'm in doubt which 17" laptop to choose - MSI Ge75 9SF with rtx2070 (non max-q) but no G-Sync or Lenovo Legion Y740 with rtx2070 max-q and G-Sync display. Both are with i9750H processor.

It will be used mainly for playing intensive FPS games (Escape from Tarkov, CoD, etc.). MSI is about 200usd more expensive but I would pay that if performance would be better than Lenovo. 

Thanks!

So, I have noticed my P650HP6-G has its G-sync option missing after a screen replacement and a windows reinstall.

 

Is this screen installed by the retailer legit?

That looks like a Helios 300 display which is non GSync.  It's not a Helios only panel it's used by plenty of models, but it's not GSync afaik...
