The high-end 17-inch gaming laptop has been on the market for a very short time, but a reputable electronics retailer is already granting a welcome discount on the RTX 4080 and Core i9-powered configuration of the 2024 MSI Raider GE78 HX.

The latest 2024 generation of gaming machines is finally available, but as expected, the current asking prices for enthusiast-grade notebooks such as the MSI Raider GE78 HX are very high in comparison to last year's models. Thankfully, a well-known online shop has put the RTX 4080 gaming laptop on sale with a small but praiseworthy discount.

More specifically, the New York City-based seller B&H Photo Video is currently selling the MSI Raider GE78 HX for $200 off the official list price. As a result, the 17-inch gaming laptop with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card and the brand-new Intel Core i9-14900HX can be ordered for $2,599 including free shipping. This configuration of the MSI Raider GE78 HX is further equipped with 32GB DDR5 memory and a spacious 1TB SSD.

Beyond the attractive Core i9 and dedicated RTX 4080, prospective owners of the MSI Raider GE78 HX will probably be pleased with the 17-inch gaming laptop's IPS display with a resolution of 2560 by 1600 and a fast refresh rate of 240Hz. The panel also covers the full DCI-P3 color space and can reach a peak brightness of 400 nits.

Last but not least, the MSI Raider GE78 HX already supports super-fast or super-efficient PCIe 5.0 SSDs such as the Samsung 990 Evo (from $75 on Amazon). That being said, there are some very attractive RTX 4080 gaming laptop deals available for shoppers who don't necessarily need the latest processor. But for very demanding gamers and early adopters, this 17-inch notebook sale is definitely worth consideration.
