Last year, the MSI Pulse GL66 gaming laptop with the Intel Core i9-12900H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics visited our testing labs for an in-depth review. The model under the scope had 16 GB of memory and a 512 GB SSD, as well as a FHD 144 Hz display. The review revealed that “The expensive CPU doesn’t perform at its full level, and a more affordable model would have lowered the price of the system to a more appropriate level.” Fortunately, Amazon is offering a 23% discount for a more balanced configuration that brings together the Intel Core i7-12700H processor and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card.
The discounted hardware setup mentioned above retails carrying the model number 12UGKV-464. Its display and connectivity features are identical to the reviewed unit. It comes with Windows 11 Home preloaded. Thanks to the aforementioned discount, those interested can acquire the MSI Pulse GL66 (12UGKV-464) for US$1,226.99, down from the Amazon list price of US$1,599. However, it is also possible to get this machine in 18 interest-free monthly payments of US$68.17, thanks to the Amazon Rewards Visa Card.
After 141 user reviews, the MSI Pulse GL66 has a global rating of 4.3/5 Amazon stars. This score comes thanks to 68% perfect ratings and 14% 4/5 reviews, but it also received 8% minimum scores of a single star. Amazon customers rated this portable for five attributes, namely battery life (3.1), value for money (3.7), touchscreen (3.9), gaming performance (4.2), and screen quality (4.3).

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I’ve been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
