    I bought myself an MSI GL63 on clearance at Micro Center in January for ~$900 after tax and rebate. It came with a Core i7-9750H, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti, a 1 TB SSD, and a 120 Hz screen with very good color accuracy. I got a very good deal, especially considering that I thought I’d have to pay well over $1000 for the specs I wanted. I even avoided most of the pitfalls I was trying to avoid, such as abysmal cooling and terrible screen quality.
    However, the trackpad surprised me by how awful it is. Even my worn out trackpad on my ancient Dell L502X laptop from 2011 is still better. The speakers on my Dell are also better. I hate that most gaming laptops now have mediocre or awful downfiring speakers. But, I can’t complain too much. I spent less on my MSI than I did on my Dell, and the i7-9750H in the MSI is 3-5x faster in my long-running workloads than the old i7-2630QM in my Dell. Of course, I had to get an external mouse speakers to complement my MSI, though.
    Finally, as for store-exclusive laptops, Micro Center is definitely worth a look if you have one nearby. Comparing variants of the same laptop line across different stores, you’ll typically get improved specs for the same or even sometimes lower price at Micro Center than you’d find elsewhere.
