i'm from egypt and shipping a laptop from amazon costs around 140$-220$
so a 650$ laptop cost me 800$ absolutely
i found 2 used laptop in my country
1- acer-aspire-a715-71g
cpu: i7 7700hq
gpu : gtx 1050 ti
ram: 8gb ddr4
price : 793$
and the seller pulled out the (ssd) and told me if u want it u should pay additional 40$
total price: 833$

2-Msi G72 6QD
Cpu: i7 6700hq
gpu: gtx 1060 3gb
ram: 8gb ddr4
there is no ssd
price : 741 $

should i buy one of them or wait for a better deal
my limitation is 800$
so if there is better used laptop in amazon with 650$ or lower i can afford it

i could buy one for 700$ (850$ with shipping) but amazon currency exchanger take additional 5.2% from the total price of laptop and shipping so the final price will be 895$ which i cann't afford
1 $ = 18.91 egp (in amazon)
1 $ = 17.91 egp (in other banks)
my limitation is 15,000 egp = 793.25 $ (amazon)
=837.5 $ (other banks)

thx

The MSI is easily the better deal with the faster video card, MSI as a brand is also more reliable than Acer.

A new system with a 1060 card and an i7 CPU is about $1000 new in the US, so $740 used is not too bad at all.

Not sure what you mean it's a 970 upgraded, you listed the specs as a GTX 1060, nothing about a 970. We don't know anything aside from what you put in the post.

To know if there are issues or not, turn it on and test it. Run Prime95 to make sure there are not heat issues or CPU/RAM issues, run 3DMark and a few games to test the video card.
