Xotic PC MSI GS60 6QE 002US Notebook Review

 

Ghost in a shell. The portable 15.6-inch GS60 gets Skylake, DDR4, NVMe SSD, and USB 3.1 Super Port for its latest refresh. Essentially, pretty much everything but the GTX 970M has been updated. Has gaming performance improved in any way?

improved surface temperatures, very high performance, thinner than most competing gaming notebooks, low CPU temperatures, GPU overclocking, USB 3.1 Gen. 2 Type-C port, extremely fast NVMe SSD, accurate colors and grayscale, no throttling when gaming,...

only 2x full-size USB ports; No VGA, no RAID; One M.2 slot removed, no G-Sync, SODIMM and M.2 SSD require additional disassembly, build quality could be better, non-removable CPU and GPU, no optical drive, loud fan noise, short battery life

It may not seem like a huge upgrade from the outside, but the GS60 is a much better gaming machine than when it was a year ago. The simple move from Haswell and a GTX 8xxM GPU to Skylake and a GTX 9xxM GPU has dramatically improved temperatures. If...

While the GS60 is surprisingly quick, its potential is killed by a nonsensical software suite.

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K

 

The MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K delivers a midrange gaming laptop that brings plenty of bang for the buck, and several small touches that will delight gamers.

Customizable backlighting. Gaming keyboard with anti-ghosting. Slim and light design with durable aluminum construction. Quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and latest Nvidia graphics card. Generous two-year warranty

Short battery life. Runs hot while gaming

Just a couple of years ago, thin and light laptops with real gaming chops were just a pipe dream, but the latest slim MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K ($2,199 as tested) proves that things have changed in a big way. This svelte 15-inch laptop is big enough to...

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K Review

 

MSI has several lines of gaming notebooks catering to different types of users. In the past few months we've looked at MSI's top-of-the-line GT70, equipped with NVIDIA's GTX 880M GPU. While that's a great notebook for those who want performance first,...

After testing and using the MSI GS60 for over a month, there's plenty to like with the overall package. It's attractive and looks far better than the other MSI product lines (in my opinion at least), and it's not nearly as bulky to pack around....

MSI GS60 Ghost review: a gaming rig in Ultrabook's clothing

 

It's the natural order of things: NVIDIA releases a new line of mobile GPUs and suddenly the market is flooded with new gaming laptops. It is spring, aft

Simple, elegant design ; Powerful ; Great trackpad for productivity

Disappointing audio ; Average battery life ; Trackpad is lousy for gaming

The GS60 Ghost is a slim and powerful option for gamers who want a lightweight rig. If you're going to spend that kind of money, though, wait for the unreleased GS60 Ghost Pro, which will bring a sharper display and better graphics.

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K review – Nvidia GTX 970M & 870M versions

 

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the laptop, especially the 970M version. The GS60 Pro offers pretty much the best that can be offered by an Ultraportable to date. And they do it without skimping on the screen and keyboard quality. I've only spent a...

well constructed, stellar screen, good keyboard and trackpad, powerful configurations, solid gaming performance for both versions, but especially the 970M model, proper priced

bright backlit logo on the hood that can't be turned off, the trackpad is too close to the laptop's bottom lip, short battery life, some heating and throttling issues on the 870M version

Expert Review

 

Thin and light brushed aluminum design, Beautiful 3K display, Solid gaming performance, Full-bodied sound, Good keyboard and touch pad

Runs hot, Screen lacks touch sensitivity, Lackluster Webcam

But minor complaints aside, the Ghost Pro is an excellent choice for your next gaming laptop. It's trim, lightweight, and packed to the gills with cutting-edge components. A gamer could ask for nothing more.

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro review

 

1080p PC gaming on-the-go at its finest

Excellent screen and sound ; Performance pusher ; Stupendous keyboard

Fleeting battery life ; A bit expensive

A little expensive and short on battery life, this 15-inch gaming laptop has its flaws. But, despite those drawbacks, it's one of the best performing laptops we've ever tested.
