My wife is pursuing higher education and will be taking a 2 year course online. A few days ago she informed me that their interface is not mobile friendly and she will need a laptop for school.

No problem.

it’s been forever since I’ve given any thought to newer PC hardware, and I’m a cheapass. This made for a hell of a headache and a lot of comparison shopping, but this is what I settled on:

MSI GL73 8RC-032

8th gen i7 8750H processor (6 core, 12 thread, 2.2ghz min, 4.1ghz max)

16GB ddr4 2666mhz ram

Geforce GTX 1050 4GB

128GB SSD plus 1 TB optical

17.3" display

Would have cost the better part of 2 grand from a Canadian retailer, or around 1200 cad plus tax had I driven across the line and gone to Costco. Luckily for me, a kid decided to sell his Christmas present because he didn’t want it.


Hurray for half price electronics!

Did I do good Oppos?
