MSI Titan GT77HX Review
I’ve really enjoyed getting in to reviewing laptops. The available features, sizes, and price ranges are all over the map, and it can be difficult to decide between them. My article on the Best Laptop For Mom shows exactly that. Included in that list is the MSI Titan GT77HX. In a word, this thing is a beast. It’s big. It’s expensive. And it is packed with all the latest and greatest features and hardware. If you have the budget and no willingness to compromise, this is the laptop for you.

MSI Titan GT77HX Impressions
On first look, the $6,000 price tag on the MSI GT77HX threw me for a loop. But once you dig in to the specs and features, its easy to see where the money went. There is no compromise in this machine. It has all the latest and greatest from the i9-13980HX Processing powerhouse to the GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card and extra large storage. And, the included Clutch GM08 Wired Gaming Gear and GD21 Gaming Gear Pad are a welcome bonus.
Does anyone really need this much laptop? Probably not, but there is something to be said for future-proofing, or at least future-delaying your technology. I personally still have a gaming laptop form 2010, that after an upgrade to Windows 10 and a replacement of the HD to a newer SSD, runs as well as many current entry level laptops. Will it run all of today’s games? No, but it will run a lot of fairly recent titles on medium settings and performs any other daily tasks just fine. Its obviously not my most used computer, but I don’t have any good reason to get rid of it either. This MSI machine could be the same way 10 years from now, so the initial price tag is high, but spreading that cost out over multiple years could make it a good investment for some people.
