    Hi,

    I was looking for a laptop, to work and play on my free time. The GS63VR seems good, but it looks like it gets too hot. im afraid that it "breaks" in 2 years.

    Is the Gtx 1070mq worth it btw ?

    Any thought about it ?

    1070MQ worth the money? No, not really. The 1070MQ is barely faster than a normal 1060 laptop with an OC.

    As for durability, electrically it's solid but physically it's on the fragile side (you want to avoid hitting/dropping/burning/stabbing the laptop - it's not a business class machine :p)

    Well, i always take care of my laptops, so im not worried about it.

    A friend got the gs70, and it broke in 2 years because of the heat.. So im worried that the gs63 will do the same and wont past 2 or 3 years of usage...

    Im looking for the impossible, i know, but this laptop was the most powerfull and light that i found

    Cooling has improved a lot in these thin MSI laptops, I don't think you should worry.

    You could look for the ASUS Zephyrus with the 1080 MQ...

    Gaming laptops typically don't last long past 2 years. Expecting more than 2-3 years is unrealisitc for any laptop with a powerful dGPU.

    No notebook will die to heat if you take care of it. As long you check your temps and repaste it.
    I highly recommend you ignore this.

    If you want to spend 2.5kEUR on a notebook and don't mind if it has some weight to it I'd recommend a Clevo P775DM3.

    You're quite wrong, actually. The majority of laptops (not counting the large DTRs) with powerful dGPUs (like the GS series) are not likely to make it past 3 years of use.

    As for heat - the GS63 and GS73 already run at throttling temperatures at stock, not sure how you think repasting will solve anything. The difference between 90*C and 85*C won't be enough to prevent heat degradation over the course of 2 years

    It is true that the GS does throttle but killing modern component with 85C - 90C in a span of 2-3 years isn't happening. Nobody cares about your nonfactual made up stories.
