MSI Alpha 17 C7VF
Reviews for the MSI Alpha 17 C7VF
WiFi 7-powered devices are expected to arrive later this year, and the 2023 Alpha 17 is one of the first devices that will support it. WiFi 7 routers are still rare (and not yet available in the market), but having laptops like the 2023 Alpha 17 ensures that you are future-proof and ready once there is wider WiFi 7 support. The 2023 Alpha 17 starts at $1849 for the RTX 4060 model, which translates to around Php 104,000 when converted. There’s no word yet if MSI plans to bring this version of the Alpha 17 to the Philippines.
