The MSI you linked has a GTX 1050 and i7-7700HQ. I recommend the **HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop**, which has better specs. It has:

* i5-8300H 4-core processor (**faster than i7-7700HQ**)

* 8 GB of RAM

* 128 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD storage

* 1080p 15.6″ display

* GTX 1050 Ti (**faster than GTX 1050**)

* Weight of 5lbs and battery life up to 10 hours

This laptop runs Windows 10 Home. It is perfectly inside of your budget. It will be better than the laptop you linked, if you’re okay with a 15.6″ display. Whether you’re gaming or doing graphically heavy work, the GTX 1050 Ti will perform better.
