Information about laptops powered by Intel’s 8th generation CPUs has started to surface already, and it is only natural we see a drop in price for the current generation models. MSI was quick to slash the prices and now offers the PL62 laptop powered by Intel’s high-end 4-core i7-7700HQ with 3.8 GHz boosted clocks for only $799 on Amazon.

Looking at the specifications, the PL62 could pass as a gaming laptop, since MSI decided to include Nvidia’s latest MX150 dedicated GPU in the mix. The MX150 should be able to handle triple-A games on low settings and offer decent video and photo editing acceleration, with its 2GB VRAM. In the display department, we find a 15.6” IPS-level screen that offers wide view angles and 1080p resolution, with 94% NTSC color coverage. In order to keep the price as low as possible, MSI included only 8 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM (upgradeable to 32 GB) and a 5400 RPM 1 TB hard drive.

Special features include the Cooler Boost 4 internal design that maximizes the airflow for the CPU and GPU, a white backlight Steel Series keyboard, plus 4 Dynaudio Tech speakers, while the connectivity part is handled by 3 USB 3.0 ports, one of which is Type-C.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
