The Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti laptop version is a mid-midrange gaming GPU, based on the Nvidia Pascal architecture and the GP107 core. The GTX 1050 TI can be found in laptops for as low as $580-$650 with a typical price of around $600-$700. Cost effectiveness is relatively good and 1080p gaming performance is adequate, being enough for almost all heavy 3D demanding games.

As seen in the above chart, the GTX 1060MQ (link) has an advantage of around 20% on the GTX 1050 Ti, on average, so cost effectiveness of the GTX 1050 Ti is around the same like that of the GTX 1060MQ for lowest/typical price.
Compared to previous generation Maxwell 900 series, the GTX 1050 TI delivers is at least as fast as the Maxwell II GTX 970M and around twice as fast the GTX 960M that was available for the same price.
The Pascal based GPUs, are about to be replaced with next generation Nvidia GPUs, starting at the end of 2018. I would suggest waiting until then, unless it can be bought for a significantly low price.
