Hello all. I am wondering how much of a premium I am being charged for this custom laptop.

I know that system builders have to make their cheddar; however, I found out that MSI made this unit that Xidax customized. So, with that being said, I got curious and started researching similar MSI laptops within the same price points and configurations to potentially establish price to performance justification. Call me crazy.

$2198 out the door

My specs are; Processor; Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQClick image for larger version.

Moreover, I found a somewhat similar similar laptop on Amazon as far as price goes below.

Am I wrong, or is this beastly laptop for so much better? I found an MSI GT73VR on Amazon for $2,299.99. The specs on this thing are nasty!; (image attached below, as well as link attached)

Furthermore, Xidax had told me that they couldn't even comprehend how Amazon was able to sell the GT73VR for that price considering its specs. Lol. I know the processor is slightly slower, but everything else is amazing.

Then again, the GT73VR is, from what I read, is about 2 pounds heavier at 10.6 pounds, it's more bulkier and takes up more of a footprint. Needs to be plugged into two sockets, etc.

The one I had made, shown above; nevertheless, is much thinner and lighter, but I just want to know if anyone else can find a similar spec laptop to see if, clearly, I probably should have paid $1,000 less for the same machine Lol.

More significantly, just in case anyone was wondering, my intentions aren't entirely to game. I will only be doing some light gaming. Everything else will be more application and multimedia heavy. I don't like waiting for loading or file transfers, hence the NVME and SSD I had installed.

Let me know!
