    Hey guys, I'm currently on the lookout for a new gaming laptop. I prefer it to have a Nvidia GTX 1060 but the only issue is that my budget is kinda limited. I need to ship it to Qatar so after handling the shipping and customs, my budget for the laptop is max $900.

    Are there any good laptops in this range?

    I don't mind if it's used as long as it's trusted and is in good working condition.

    No way,, you're better off buying it locally in your country

    I ended up getting an ASUS G703V off ebay for roughly $1049 (including shipping). It's in mint condition and everything works well.
    The specs are as below:
    Asus GL703V i7-7700HQ 17.3" 120Hz 16GB RAM 1TB SSHD 256GB SSD GTX1060 6GB.

    Overall happy with the purchase.

    Right now am considering to sell my GT73VR 6RF (i7 6820HK, GTX 1080) and upgrade to something else. The RGB of my laptop is dying I guess.
