I recently bought this new MSI computer for $1,800 after taxes (1238.30 US Dollar, because CAD dollar is now worth 0.69 and dropping steadily), and I was wondering on your opinions of this computer? It arrives in 2 days, and it's quite an upgrade from my MSI GE620 (came out in 2011, going out slowly with a fight). This was honestly the best I could find for a good price (I'm decently tech savvy). Is there anything you guys would add, or change, or any laptops you guys would have preferred?

>inb4 buy/build a desktop computer

I need this to be a laptop because I move around a lot

Wasn't sure where to ask such a question either, so I came to /g/, it's my first time here.

Why's that, anon?

For 1800 you could get a better laptop

Well that's the thing, Canada has 14% tax, so if I bought a laptop that was $1800, it would have been $2100 instead. If only I lived in the US :/

It actually surprisingly makes less noise than my current laptop, and is actually a lot cooler in temperature. That, and I'm using a cooling pad. I'm basically looking for a monster of a computer, without having to use a desktop.

Honestly, fuck Canada. Shit economy, shit country, yet they still tax you and never raise your pay.
>>
>>52465712
14%? Jesus fucking christ
>>
>>52465843
I know right?

What's even worse is that the more the dollar loses value (expected to go from 0.69 USD to 0.50 USD in the next 2 years), prices go up anyways. So a video game here in Canada is 79.99 when it comes out, and after tax, is $90. Our minimum wage is around $11 by the way...

Also the reason I bought my laptop now, so the price wouldn't go up and I would be stuck with a useless one instead. It's really the only reason this laptop is $1600 ($1800 after tax) instead of around $1300 like in the US.

i thought people were joking when they talked about the ssd meme. But they actually still sell computers with only mechanical hard drives apparently.

There's the option of adding 3 M.2 SSD 2280 drives into your computer but really all it does is speed up how fast your laptop boots up.
>>
>>52465936
Needless to say though, I'm probably going to upgrade the HDD with 3 M.2 SSD 2280 drives and I'm going to probably throw in that extra few GB into the RAM
