    I just started up my GT75.
    I did the W10 update, remove the .old folder, got rid of some bloat and started up the user profile.
    MSI keeps reminding me to do a BU, I have chosen to do a USB drive.
    How big of a USB drive do I need?

    To just make an image of your OS, drivers & utilities, you need 32GB.

    An image, with for example Macrium Reflect or Acronis, is better than a back-up. Save the back-up for your creative content files.

    I did it with the MSI tool, should I do it over again?
    Also ... I started the User Account, and I keep getting the Dragon Center requesting elevated permission prompt to run.
    As I'm new to W10 and this notebook, how/where do I do the elevation/permission so it doesn't keep requesting this every time I enter the User Account?

    *EDIT*
    2 Day old notebook, should this be a warranty issue?

    The MSI tool is fine, but Macrium Reflect is probably a better utility.

    Can you provide a screenshot of the elevated permission prompt?

    Your battery will stop charging anywhere in the 90s from about 92% to 100%. This is normal.

    You can turn off the UAC control.

    Is it possible to disable the dedicated NVidia gpu in UEFI and set the display control to the Intel igpu on MSI laptops?

    I am looking for an MSI model preferably with 17.3-inch display, ~100% sRGB coverage and good color accuracy, and space for a 2.5mm HDD for about USD $2,000 or less.

    So question for the MSI Rep;

    Are there plans for the gt83 (or equivalent) to get either an upgraded monitor and/or i9?

    The irony that the gt83 is most capable of high frame rate performance and has a 60hz 1080 monitor kinda makes it hard to justify.

    No plans that MSI is revealing at this time.

    Thanks @Donald@HIDevolution, I suspected as much. I won’t be purchasing anything until the dust settles from the (potential??) RTX 2080 launch, so I can live in hope until then.
