I don’t know if what I did is an equal exchange. I traded my desktop computer for an MSI laptop. Here are the specs for both.


  • i5-4690k
  • GTX 1070
  • 240Gb Adata SSD
  • 4Tb HDD
  • Gigabyte Z97 Micro ATX Motherboard
  • Asus Wifi card
  • 16Gb RAM


  • i7-6700HQ
  • GTX 1060
  • 16Gb RAM
  • 240Gb SSD
  • 1Tb HDD
  • 1080p 120Hz monitor
  • Red Backlit keyboard
  • other cool stuff

I am pretty happy with the laptop right now, I am typing this on there 🙂

It is a little slow on startup, which is a little strange because the OS is running off of a PCIe SSD, but whatever. I am going to be testing some games tonight!
