I am looking for a laptop with the following specifications:

  • has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, 1070, or 1080
  • supports 64 GB of RAM (it doesn't have to come with 64 GB of RAM, but I should be able to upgrade to 64 GB)
  • Microsoft Windows 7 can be installed on it (it doesn't have to be "officially" supported).

Regarding the price:

  • Budget: up to around 3kUSD (no hard limit)
  • Preferred country of purchase: United States

PS: I need Windows 7, please don't add comment about Windows 10 or virtual machines. I've already other computers running on Windows 10.

  • Is Price an issue, or 20K is also fine? If not say your max price range. Feb 12, 2018 at 2:25

Although there cannot be a single answer, there are a lot of devices from different gaming manufacturers that meet your criteria, but I will point you to this MSI GT75VR TITAN PRO-215

I think it ticks all the boxes and more benefits:

  • Has the Nvidia 1080 (the best of the 3)
  • Comes already with a good 64GB or RAM
  • The quad-core i7 is not bad...although you have not mentioned CPU specifically
  • Has a fast SSD for a bonus... but still enough storage in the secondary HDD
  • It comes with Windows 10 (like every recent device...) but there is no reason why you would not be able to install Windows 7 on it. Windows Updates will not work out-of-the-box in Windows 7 (because it is a 7th gen Intel CPU) but you can use something like wufuc to get around it.

  • Thanks. "there is no reason why you would not be able to install Windows 7 on it. " I am afraid that some component may not have any Windows 7 compatible driver. The ability to run on Windows 7 is the most difficult requirement to satisfy, as the information is difficult to find :( Feb 12, 2018 at 6:50
  • @FranckDernoncourt I highly doubt that should be a real concern. The GPU and CPU work, and that's the main, all it others you can really play around with the drivers and get to work. Feb 12, 2018 at 10:41
