    So they are charging you the cost of an MXM 1080 for a 1070 notebook without you having option of selling your 980m to recoup some cost.

    Shame on you MSI, for the obvious bait and switch!

    Do you really get 4x512gb nvme ssd or is it mistake? That thing itself cost arm and a leg compared to 128gb you had.

    I understand your Point.
    But for me it's kinda a good deal.
    I Play a lot of FPS games - so an 120hz Screen is much better then a 75hz.
    I had 128gb ssd - now I get 512gb.. even the cpu is better..

    The Point what i dislike what MSI is doing - is the lack of Information and how they treat their customers.
    The GT73VR will be my last MSI product.

    If here is someone from DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and Need help - just PM me..
    I know now who is the right Person @ MSI Germany.

    You will get this GT73VR because there weren't other options ? Can you choose the new GT laptop ?

    This all reminds me of the current BS Asus is putting everyone through with their $800 PG279Qs.. Most of them have seriously bad backlight bleed/pressure issues and white uniformity is really awful where half the screens are yellow. They never responded to the community and continue to this day to sell terrible BLB $800 panels.. You'd think for the cost you'd get a quality product, nope there are many $200 panels that put the uniformity to shame of the PG279Q.

    So I feel your pain, because I own THREE PG279Qs and had to swap them about 6 times before I got a set I considered keepers..

    So, MSI France replied the program starts now until 30th of November, I submitted my info (purshare proof + information form)
    Let's wait for answers..

    I have MSI GT72 2QD : Original Setup : 4720HQ / 8Gigs / 1Tb 7.2k / GTX 970M / FullHD IPS

    What Fast ? 1 to 2 weeks without a main machine isnt fast, i expect max 2 working days for sending my new laptop ! They can boot it with USB drives and do a PRIME 95 + GPU Z stress test and go to sleep after sending me a new machine !
