Usually budged gaming notebooks are limited to a GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 Ti graphics card but some models offer the GTX 1060 for roughly the same price. You can check our list of budget gaming notebook under $1000 over here. Today there is an amazing deal on Amazon that lowers the price of the MSI GP72VR to a bit above our $1000 threshold but remaining in the budget range.
You can get the MSI GP72VR for $1149.00 instead of $1399.00 (18% off). This 17.3-inch model is just $200 more expensive than most budget gaming notebooks but in the same time, it offers the more powerful GTX 1060 (3GB) GPU and a larger screen. You get a large 17.3-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080p) resolution, fast 120Hz refresh rate and 94% NTSC coverage. The processor is the 7th gen Core i7-7700HQ backed by 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 1TB of HDD storage.
The upgrade options include an M.2 slot that supports PCIe NVMe SSDs and the maximum amount of system memory is 32GB (you get two slots). The GP72VR incorporates many of MSI’s exclusive features like a SteelSeries keyboard, Nahimic 2 audio system, Cooler Boost 4 technology, Killer network controller and others.
You also get a free 2-month license for WTFast – a gamer-centric closed networks that provides great connection and minimal lag. Even packed with all these features, the GP72VR is not too heavy or bulky – 2.7kg and 29-32 mm for a 17.3-inch notebook is fairly light and thin.
