Holy smokes! Both of those are VERY high end gaming laptops. They can play the most demanding of dark side games!

To be honest, you don't need an RT 3060 graphics card to play casual and adventure games. MSI and Lenovo are both very good brands. I assume they both come with Windows 10? Can I assume all the games you refer to are disc games? Almost all of the new laptops do not have disk drives, so you would have to check that. A new exterior drive is pretty cheap.

Thanks draclvr . I knew you would give me some great advice. I download most of my games from Steam and have them all on my laptop. The early ones I downloaded from the cds I had bought years ago. I hope I will be able to play them.
I am going to ask when I buy it if it will have windows 11 I am not sure as its new isn't it .
Any info on Windows 11.
Regards
Maggsie

Then you are good to go with your Steam downloads. This laptop is really high end and FAR more than you need unless you start First Person Shooter gaming! But if this is within your budget, then you will be good to go for a long time. You'd have to ask about the OS and also ask whether the hardware will support Windows 11 if it has Windows 10.

I do know that one. Another one is, "Use the good china!" And that's why I just built myself a super high end desktop!!

Hi I am back and in need of advice again . I visited my local store to buy a MSI gaming laptop and was told that because of the pandemic that it could be month or more before it would be delivered. So gutted I went on line at the same store and could get this laptop within a few days. I have the specs can you check them out for me. Its a lot cheaper £659 That's why I'm not sure

intel core i5- GTH 1650,512 GB SSD 15.6" screen

Intel Core i5-10500HProcessor,
Ram 8 GB/ Storage 512GBSSD
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTH 1650 4 GB
full HD screen/144 Hz
Regards
Maggsie

The reason it's cheaper is because the components are downgraded. Your original one had a core i7 processor; this one has a core i5. The first one had 16 GB of RAM; this one has 8. The first one had a high end Nvidia 3060 video card; this one has a lower end 1650 Nvidia video card.

It just all depends on if you want to wait a month for the higher end one or settle for the lower end one. The lower end one will be fine for casual and adventure gaming.

I assume you mean the little USB adapter for your wireless mouse? Are you sure you have the right port? If you can give me the model name of your laptop, I can see what kinds of different ports it has. I believe this one has USB A, USB C and regular USB ports. Looking at some photos, it looks like it might be on the left? Get out your manual and see what it says about the different USB ports.

The only Model no, I can get is this SKU Katana GF76. I just took my wireless mouse from my old laptop and just thought it would slide in but it doesn't. there is a USB port on the right and two on two left Also the usual half curved one as well.
Surely USB ports are all the same ?
Thanks Draclvr

And again, we ARE talking about the little USB adapter, right? The USB 2.0 is the port you want. And no, some of the new USB ports are not the same! The old USB 2.0 ports have an "up" and and "down" way to insert the adapter, so make sure you have that right.
