So I am in the market for a gaming laptop - Micorcenter has the powerspec 1510 on clearance for around 1000 bucks= i7 7700HQ 16GB ram 256 NVME (960 evo) 1 TB hdd gtx 1070 (not HQ) Here is the few downsides I see - it is pretty bulky. I mean not terrible but 1 inch thick. The ips panel is nice and the unit supports gsync but it is 60hz and the unit has not thunderbolt 3 port. my other option is GS63 STEALTH-010 Pluses are - it is much thinner and has a higher refresh rate screen (144 hz) but is rocking the 1060 hq.. It has the newer core i7 but a lesser nvme. It also has a TBolt 3. The negative it is 1599.00 The powerspec is easier to upgrade with multiple m2 nvme slots. So given the MSI is 600 dollars more - is it really worth it if I get 90% of what I want from the cheaper one?
