  • Summary: MSI's Dominator Pro GT60 packs two significant firsts. It's the first high-end gaming laptop we've reviewed with a HiDPI display (the GT60's 2880x1660 panel is the equal of the vaunted MacBook Pro's Retina display), and it's the first system we've looked at to sport .

Review MSI GT60 Dominator Notebook

Notebookcheck
9 May 2014
  • Summary: Game mode: Domination. Following the release of Nvidia's 800-series, MSI revamps its gaming laptop line. While not much has changed in terms of external appearance, the performance levels have been improved considerably. Still, the main selling point of the Dominator will surely be its 3K display.
  • Pros: Colorful IPS panel with phenomenal viewing angles, Superb performance levels (CPU / GPU), Numerous maintenance options, Cool surfaces, Decent battery life, Top-notch sound, Brushed aluminium, 3-zone illumination system, Blu-ray drive, Nice extras, The Dynaudio system never ceases to amaze us.
  • Cons: High noise emissions under load, Highly reflective display, Location of ports, Tiny touchpad, Heavy and thick chassis, Old-fashioned design, No SSD, Bloatware, No SSD in such a pricy device? A strange decision in the year 2014.

MSI GT60 Dominator Pro 3K-475 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
19 March 2014
  • Summary: For the price, however, we wish that MSI would work on improving the touchpad, as well as making the speakers louder and the fans softer. Still, this rig feels like a bargain compared to the $2,999 ASUS G750JZ, which offers comparable graphics performance, longer battery life and a more reliable...

MSI GT60 2PE Dominator Pro Review

bit-tech.net
12 March 2014
  • Conclusion: The MSI GT60 2PE Dominator Pro is clearly an accomplished performer. It packs in masses of powerful hardware, has a good keyboard and finishes it off with a mostly excellent 3K resolution screen. However, almost inevitably when it comes to gaming laptops we do have some issues.

Review Update MSI GT60 WSPH-7216257BW Workstation

Notebookcheck
9 August 2013
  • Summary: Work(station) zone! MSI makes a foray into the realm of professional workstations and challenges the well-established brands with a vivid Full-HD display, SSD RAID, Nvidia Quadro K2000M GPU, and Intel quad-core CPU.
  • Pros: Very good display, Very good keyboard, Decent port selection and distribution, Good CAD performance, Very good overall performance, Sturdy chassis, The vivid display, the successful combination of SSDs and conventional hard drive, the keyboard, and the expandability of the system.
  • Cons: Visual appearance not very business-like, Business features are lacking, Fan is always on, Large and heavy, Small touchpad, A more efficient cooling system, a visually more appropriate chassis with a more business-oriented port selection, and the (supposedly available) IPS display.

MSI Global GT60 Dominator Pro Review

Digitaltrends
22 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The MSI GT60 Dominator Pro is heavy, looks gaudy, and runs hot, but the hardware is absolutely fantastic. The processor is quick, the GTX 880M can outrun mid-range gaming desktops, and the 3K display looks great when it’s used for gaming.

MSI GT60 2OD-026US Review

LAPTOP Magazine
14 June 2013
  • Summary: If you purchase this system through Xotic PC, we recommend opting for Windows 7 Home Premium. Though it will add $104 to the total cost, there's no reason to get Windows 8 on a gaming notebook without a touch screen.

Review Update MSI GT60 0NG-294US Notebook

Notebookcheck
25 February 2013
  • Summary: Cost-efficient workstation. MSI turns its 15.6-inch gamer from yesteryear into a full-fledged workstation with an Nvidia K2000M discrete GPU and higher quality matte display. Should workstation users finally take notice?
  • Pros: Excellent workmanship, Powerful CPU + GPU performance, Backlit keyboard with multiple colors, Improved 1080p matte display, Easy maintenance, Powerful system performance with full CPU Turbo Boost potential and ease of serviceability. Chassis is built tough with an excellent cooling system.
  • Cons: Must void warranty sticker in order to access common components such as RAM, CPU, GPU, and HDD, Loud idling fan noise, Display does not cover blue-magenta region of sRGB spectrum, Touch-sensitive keys still hit-or-miss, The cooling system comes at the cost of loud noise when notebook is idling.
