Conclusion: Still, we applaud MSI for identifying those qualities we most desire in a gaming notebook—crisp visuals, full-bodied sound, and top-notch (or very nearly top-notch) gaming performance—and focusing on getting those right. The GE60 Apache Pro-003 may not have the biggest muscles on the beach, but it won't get sand kicked in its face, either.
Pros: Affordable, Thin and light design, Good keyboard, Lovely 1080p display, Full-bodied sound, Solid gaming performance
Summary: Colorful Mix. The MSI gaming collection is dominated by 17-inch models and includes a handful of 14 and 15-inch models to round off the offering. The new GE60H-i765M2811B is a member of the latter and offers an interesting design and high-class hardware. How does it fare in our in-depth tests? Find out in the following review.
Pros: Anti-glare FHD display, Comfortable maintenance, Backlit keyboard, Graphics switching, Good sound, Primarily matte, Blu-ray drive, Good performance, SSD RAID, The high performance paired with the user-friendly maintenance possibilities.
Cons: CPU throttling in extreme conditions, Keyboard requires getting used to, High temperature at load, Poor touchpad mechnanism, Sensitive display cover, Weak battery, Bloatware, A better cooling system, which keeps the temperatures and noise emissions lower. A stronger battery would not hurt.
Summary: In terms of performance, MSI offers one of the most impressive gaming laptops for the price in the GE60. However, that affordability brings with it some trade-offs, namely an occasionally frustrating touchpad and a cheaper-looking design than premium rigs.
Pros: Great gaming and overall performance, Affordable price, Lightweight for its size, Backlit keyboard
Cons: Inconsistent touchpad, Subpar battery life, Runs hot while gaming, Somewhat bland case design
Conclusion: Still, it's hard to spend $1,249 only to be told you'll need to learn to live with dialed-down resolution and detail settings in your favorite games. The GE60 is a capable system that will save you a good deal of money, but if gaming performance is more important to you than productivity benchmarks, we think you'll want to check out the AMD-based MSI GX60 for only $50 more.
Pros: Core i7 processor, Powerful audio, Good battery life
Cons: So-so graphics performance, No keyboard backlighting, No Blu-ray drive
Summary: Gamers' choice? MSI hopes to attract mobile gaming fans with the MSI GE60. The 15.6-inch notebook promises strong application and 3D performance with its combination of Core i7 processor and a 600-series Nvidia graphics card based on an already-tested barebones system and a matte, Full HD display.
Pros: Matt screen with good contrast and brightness, 2x USB 3.0, High application and gaming performance, Attractive price-performance ratio, Powerful speakers, High-quality screens are slowly but surely becoming standard among gaming notebooks in the 1000 Euro ($1249 USD) range. High brightness, good contrast and a matte finish are exactly how we like it.
Cons: Moderate case quality, Noise and heat development during load, Sensitive high-gloss surfaces, Improvement worthy interface positioning, No SSD, Gamers also think practically. The high gloss piano lacquer looks good but also reveals dust and fingerprints. MSI could also improve manufacturing quality.
