Initially, I decided to fit in the budget of 1,200$ to find a good and a cheap laptop, so I recommend this laptop model from MSI.
Although I wanted to write about an ACER laptop, unfortunately ACER laptops have undergone major price changes. From the cheapest gaming laptops they have come to cost more than their competitors. The price / quality / performance ratios did not push me to put them in the best gaming laptop article.
So, MSI fully deserves to be reviewed a little bit detailed.
A cheap laptop with very good specifications, and not only specifications, but also “in real life”. This model excels. It has some advantages compared to the Lenovo Legion portable laptop, but also small shortcomings on the charging / autonomy side.
