27 February 2015
  • Summary: Recently, MSI has not only been able to draw attention with their own equipment, such as the GT70, but also managed to distinguish themselves as a barebones producer for numerous build-to-order devices, and all of them have an attractive price-performance ratio in common.
  • Pros: very good price-performance ratio, very good gaming performance, very good keyboard, brigth Non-Glare-Display, doesn't get too hot
  • Cons: build quality could be better, only average CPU performance

  • Conclusion: Sure, we'd like to see an option for a solid-state drive. And despite its responsiveness, we never got used to the system's cramped, recessed touch pad. But most gamers will want to use a mouse when gaming, and if you really want an SSD, the system's chassis has space inside for a second hard drive.
  • Pros: Great gaming performance for the price, Nice 1080p matte screen, SteelSeries keyboard, Blu-ray drive, Good battery life for a gaming rig
  • Cons: Weak productivity performance, No solid-state drive or backlit keyboard at this price, Cramped, recessed touch pad

MSI GX60 Gaming Notebook Review

29 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Some time ago I had the opportunity to look at Maingear�s Titan 17 notebook, a system described as a high performance desktop replacement by the boutique PC builder.

LAPTOP Magazine
28 December 2012
  • Summary: MSI's opus won't touch triple-digit framerates like the recently reviewed Maingear Nomad 17, but that $2,599 system also costs over a grand more than the GX60. Moreover, in some of our gaming tests, this MSI bested the more expensive ASUS G75VW-DS71 and held its own against the Digital Storm X17 ,...

Review MSI GX60 Notebook

20 December 2012
  • Summary: A bold hardware mix. How much power does the Radeon HD 7970M still have when the high-end graphics is combined with a weak processor? MSI installs AMD's low-cost A10-4600M quad-core in its GX60 to achieve the lowest price possible. Our benchmarks reveal the sobering results.
  • Pros: Casing's cool surfaces, Very potent graphics card, Matte, Full HD screen, Blu-ray drive, Many interfaces, Strong battery, Great sound, Fair price, Above all, the good picture and sound quality.
  • Cons: Unusual keyboard layout, Very flashy design, Weak processor, Sensitive lid, Bulky chassis, A plain design and matte casing surfaces.

TechRadar UK
28 January 2013
  • Summary: MSI's new gaming portable makes pixel pumping the priority
  • Pros: Games look awesome, Good battery life, Excellent sound quality, Aggressively priced, The screen is excellent and delivers just what you want from a gaming portable: rich and vivid colours, great contrast and huge detail thanks to a 1,920 by 1,080 pixel grid. The battery life is excellent for this...
  • Cons: A10 processor isn't good enough, Radeon HD 7970M graphics held back, Disappointing SSD RAID array, Thick chassis, Gets hot under load, Make no mistake. AMD cores are not like Intel cores. And Intel Core i7 quad-core chip typically delivers at least twice the performance of the AMD A10 processor. ...
