4k on a laptop? cmon... even 1080p is something of stretch in some configs... 4k is half-way into disappointent

You don't need to play at that res. Use 4K for movies and content and play on 1080p.
I picked up one of these refurbished on NewEgg and ended up having to return it. I picked up another one non-refurb and I really like it. It packs a lot of performance considering it's less than half the cost of a Razer Blade Pro (which it's replacing, my 2012 pro is showing its age). I definitely didn't pay this much even for the new one though, this isn't really a deal.
Would the 3 backers please contact me? I would like to discuss exciting real estate opportunities in Florida swampland.

lol, this comment made my day.

For the new 6 backers, if swampland isn't your thing I have a great list of luxurious time share condos in the Caribbean...
Really Massdrop.....really.... 1849 for a 6700HQ and a 1060....really

you forgot the 5400 rpm SATA. This is indeed a steal(th) offer!
heh similiar to me, never joined a drop... and all the newsletter mails are like 40% knifes, 30% lockpicks and the rest is pencils and computer stuff :d
This isn't a great drop at all. Newegg has refurbished 15" ones at much lower pricing. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834154652&ignorebbr=1&cm_re=PPSSYAIYNVLKMT-_-34-154-652-_-Product

Hey thanks for this!
Argh, why, msi?! Why must you eternally frustrate me with 4k screens and underpowered gpus?! I've got a 1080ti that can barely handle bf1 max settings and I know the 1060 would be seriously underpowered for actual gaming. I understand budget, etc, but msi, please.

Definitely don't need a 1080 to drive a high refresh 1080p screen tho. A 970 would do that.
MarginalSC
Absolutely. 1080 will push more detailed frames faster.
But if I had to make a choice between a 4k 60 htz display or a 120+ htz 1080 display, I'd go with the higher refresh rate.
$1,800 for a 1060? LoL. These should be in the $1,200 range.

its not an ultrathin. that laptop weighs almost twice as much. That being said, a 17 inch 4k screen is stupid and they charge a huge premium for something you wont ever use.
expected 7th gen processor :(
I actually bought this laptop (the FHD 120Hz monitor version) some months ago from Amazon. This is a fantastic laptop with great build quality and one of the best laptop keyboards I have used. Previously I have had 2 acers, 2 dells and 1 Asus ROG laptop. The screen is very nice and the laptop is very light and portable for something that packs so much power. I game on this when I am on the move. The only con (and a major one) is that it overheats terribly. CPU/GPU temps go up to 90C with just half hour of gaming (doom, overwatch, COD:IW etc) and its uncomfortable to keep the palm rested on the keyboard. Ambient temps where i live is at 28C to 30C

I would highly suggest a laptop cooling pad. I've been able to push laptops VERY much not made for gaming into running things like TF2 and Minecraft with one. It's not great but it definitely helps immensely.

If you don't mind opening it up, repaste it. I had opened up my GT73VR Titan Pro to add a couple of drives (saved me some money vs buying one that came with the same ssd setup) and while I was in there I decided to repaste. There was SO MUCH FACTORY PASTE! Looking back at it...I wish I had taken pictures. Imagine the dies (either the CPU or GPU...they were both abysmal) like a hamburger. Now imagine that you just squeezed mayonnaise (I use mayo as an example because it's typically thicker than ketchup and more closely resembles a consistency that would be more-in-line as a TIM consistency would be) from the bottle over every square inch of it's surface area. Then imagine what it looks like after you smash a bun on top of it. I couldn't believe the amount of TIM that was outside of the die areas.
After repasting only (no changes in clocks, voltages, fan profiles) my temperature after the OS booted up went from an average of 6-8 over ambient to 2-5 over ambient. At full load I went from hitting 63C to 51C. No cooling pad or anything just the stock fans while it sits on my desk.
How come the 120 hz monitor version wasn't picked? I feel like that would be a better worth it computer for the community. This is a gaming laptop with a 1060. I think better response rate is more worth the money than a 4k resolution.
This is a good price for this laptop new. Similar prices on Newegg Canada with refurbished units. I almost pulled the trigger on this, if not for the reviews that the GS line overheat due to their thinness. Not anything unexpected for cramming so much computing power in a very very thin chasis.
Only buy this if you absolutely need power and thinness at the same time, it will overheat.

Thats in us dollars
Can i add an external GPU with razer core
ZWIN
if it uses thunderbolt 3 then yes
ZWIN
It uses thunderbolt 3 and I have read a few forums where people have got the core working with this and the gs63vr.
they send to Mexico?
1550$ on Amazon right now... this website is ripoff i guess.

The one on Amazon is an older version that uses Intel's 6th gen processors, this one is the new 7th gen

See the little zero next to your name? Nobody agrees with you. Go spout your bullshit somewhere else.
Beware. MSi doesn't have customer service for its notebooks. They say they do, but they don't. They don't respond to anything, and they even block you when facebook is the only way to get someone to know that your system needs parts to be replaced. My GS70 Stealth Pro 2QE-003 was in my sights for months, despite having to sacrifice input like eSATA, but when the fan started messing up, and the screen was compromised, and I went for a travel study in Japan two months after buying it, MSi wouldn't give me any attention at all. And still today, I've managed to fix the fan, but the wifi and bluetooth cancel each other when turned on at the same time, I still have a broken pixel on a screen they boasted, and the battery indicator on the front of the machine doesn't work.
1800 and no touch screen.. please

This is a gaming laptop, not an iPad.

Get rekted
I have a GS73VR, but with a 1080p 120hz screen instead of the 4k display here. Yeah it's a 1060 for a lot of money but you won't be able to get a 1070 with its increased power and heat use in something this thin - it's about 3/4" thick.
datglasstho
i rather spend the money on a 1080p or 1440p monintor with 120/144hz than a 4k display for gaming to be honest. the 1060 is perfect in my opinion.
Getting a 1060 reduces the wattage needed, which makes the slim form factor possible. It's a trade off.
$1800 for GTX1060, Jesus Christ...

The display is 4K at 60 Hz, the 4K at 30 Hz is through the hdmi and thunderbolt connectors

My point is why put a 4K panel on a gaming laptop with a gtx 1060 for 4K gaming when a gtx1080 will barely do 4K gaming at decent FPS. The 1060 doesn't have the balls to go 4K gaming doesn't matter if the specs are 60hz 30hz or 1000hz the video chip won't do the job. I don't see that this model is G-Sync at least they don't mention it anywhere on here and it's not worth my time to look it up If it was G-Sync it would matter if the panel was 4K the G-Sync would match up the fps from the 1060 to the panel then it would play half way decent. But still would be a bit sluggish. I was just trying to be informative.
What's the shipping costs to Europe?
I'm from Portugal.
Does this have a touch screen? Does it have a Blu-Ray drive (or at least a bay/slot for one to be added after-market?)

This is actually it on Newegg. But a quick look at the pictures and specs would reveal that it's not touch screen (extremely few gaming laptops are) and no slot for an optical drive.

Thin laptops tend to get rid of cd/dvd/blu ray drive because they make more bulk and most people won't use them anymore. You can buy an external one.
My laptop has a 1070 in it and I got it for the same price...

If you noticed, I did my best to make it very clear that I was comparing the 2012 version and only brought it up in terms of how much I enjoyed it, how long it has lasted me (implied given i went 4 years with no complaints and still try to use it), and the physical size of it is nearly identical to the new generation of the full-size ROG with gtx 10 series GPUs. We're basically the same customer here since you still use your asus g73sw. They're built very well, but few bags fit them properly. Sorry if I made it seem like I was comparing my g75vw specs to my predator. Wasn't my intention

Gaming laptops have divide in two different options: The ones with mobility in mind and the ones with desktop replacement in mind.
Some people dont travel a lot, so a desktop replacement benefit them. At this area, i would consider laptops with water cooling, but they are super expensive atm.
Some people now have the option to carry a slimmer versioon of a desktop. Pascal allows for gpu to almost reach the counter part (desktop). Also, you can use external gpu on some of the slim models. Gpu used to be the biggest issue on a laptop as cpu hardly improved in the lastest generation.
