Review MSI GE40-i760M2811 Notebook

Notebookcheck
6 January 2014
  • Summary: Little powerhouse. MSI takes a lot of risk with their GE40. Lightning-fast high-end hardware from Intel and Nvidia come in a compact and comfortably lightweight 14-inch case. How does that combination affect the notebook's temperatures and noise level? Read on to find out.
  • Pros: First-class speed for its size, Light and very thin case, Maintenance-friendly, Compact power supply, Long battery life, SSD/HDD combo, 14-inch case + high-end hardware = a clever concept.
  • Cons: Ports not optimally positioned, Bothersome emissions under load, No keyboard lighting, Small touchpad, No optical disk drive, High-gloss surfaces, Poor image quality, Thin sound quality, A better panel and no more high-gloss elements are high on our wish list.

Expert Review

ComputerShopper
13 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Granted, it won't win many LAN parties if someone else shows up with a much more expensive rig like an Alienware 17, but it'll give you satisfying 1,600x900 gaming if you dial back the games' eye candy a bit. By all means check out the Razer (or the dual-graphics IdeaPad Y510p) if you have more to spend, but so far, the GE40 looks like the price/performance leader of the truly-portable-gaming field.
  • Pros: Good gaming performance, Attractive thin and light design, Long battery life, Good port selection
  • Cons: No optical drive, No keyboard backlighting, Screen resolution short of full HD (1080p)

MSI GE40 2OC-009US

PC Magazine
8 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The MSI GE40 2OC-009US is a gaming ultrabook that delivers solid performance on the go, with a low price and a few flaws that can be overlooked.
  • Pros: Gaming ultrabook with slim portable design. Fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. Nvidia GeForce GTX760M graphics. Decent feature set. Solid battery life.
  • Cons: Gets uncomfortably hot. Disappointing display. Awkward button bar mars otherwise decent trackpad. No keyboard backlight.

MSI GE40 2OC-009US Review

LAPTOP Magazine
19 June 2013
  • Summary: The MSI GE40 2OC-009US has the horsepower to run today's demanding games, and the endurance needed to last a long time away from an outlet when you're not blasting enemies. Packed with a speedy 2.9-3.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, both a 128GB SSD and a 7,200 rpm 750GB hard drive, and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760M GPU, MSI's offering is fit to go head-to-head with the pricier Alienware 14.

Courte critique du PC portable MSI GE40-i760M2811

Notebookcheck.fr
15 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Une petite centrale à elle seule. MSI prend beaucoup de risque avec son GE40. Composants de pointe ultra-rapides griffés Intel et Nvidia le tout dans un châssis compact et poids-plume de 14 pouces. Qu'en est-il de la nuisance sonore et de la chauffe ?

Обзор ноутбука MSI GE40

10 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Перед нами - компактный, но достаточно доступный игровой ноутбук, что подразумевает компромиссы в существенном количестве. Естественно, часть этих компромиссов навязывается производителем искусственно. В этом нет ничего предосудительного, лишь чистый бизнес - прибыль непредсказуемо упадёт, если пользователи вдруг поймут, что полностью металлический корпус повышает себестоимость лишь на пару десятков долларов относительно дешевого пластика, а качественные матрицы стоят...
