Review MSI GX60 Notebook

 

A bold hardware mix. How much power does the Radeon HD 7970M stil

Casing's cool surfaces; Very potent graphics card; Matte, Full HD screen; Blu-ray drive; Many interfaces; Strong battery; Great sound; Fair price

Unusual keyboard layout; Very flashy design; Weak processor; Sensitive lid; Bulky chassis

15-inch high-end laptops such as the Asus G55, the Deviltech Devil 6700, the Schenker XMG A522 or the Schenker XMG P502.

MSI GX60 Review

 

The MSI GX60 is an extremely powerful gaming notebook at a very affordable price.

Non-glare 1080p display ; Powerful graphics with Eyefinity support ; Fast, high-capacity storage (SSD + HDD)

Mushy keyboard ; No keyboard backlight (on this configuration) ; Processor might be a bottleneck for some games

At the end of the day the MSI GX60 is a very capable gaming notebook that delivers great value with a few minor shortcomings. It’s nice to see MSI include useful extras like a gaming mouse and backpack, but considering the gaming audience we would have...

MSI GX60

 

The MSI GX60 is an affordable gaming notebook that delivers impressive graphics performance, a full HD matte screen and superb battery life.

Excellent graphics performance for price; Full HD matte display; Powerful THX speakers; Long battery life ; Runs cool

Chunky design; Small touchpad; Keyboard not backlit

Click to EnlargeBudget minded gamers should no doubt give the GX60 a serious look. Its impressive Batman: Arkham City scores alone should tell you that this AMD workhorse is no slouch. The 1080p matte screen makes movies and games look like candy for...

MSI GX60 Gaming Laptop Review

 

An all AMD powered beast.

Extremely powerful graphics card; Sharp anti-glare screen; Decent speakers; Solid keyboard; Loads of connectivity options; Low temperatures; Comes with decent gaming mouse

No backlit keyboard; Typical MSI bloatware; CPU bottlenecks some games

I needn’t remind you dear reader that the AMD Radeon HD 7970M performs on par with the Nvidia GTX 680M and is literally one of the fastest mobile GPU’s on the planet right now, to the point that the performance is double what anything lower (from both...

Extremely Satisfied

 

Contacted MSI and they will allow you to open up the computer to add an SSD in the extra slot without completely voiding the warranty, however you're more likely to be the culprit if the computer does need some warranty service (future HDD problems)....

Great gaming performance. I can easily say that it keeps up with my FX-4170/ 7850 gaming rig. I can play Just Cause 2 with all the settings on Very High with no lag what-so-ever in 1920x1080 where it would lag on my gaming rig ; It has an open slot for...

No backlit Keyboard ; The glossy plastic shell gets smudged easily ; I know a lot of people are saying Windows 8 is great, but I was having some issues loading games ; Brittle feeling plastic, I wouldn’t open this thing up for upgrades unless I had to....

great for the price

 

Best GAMING ONLY laptop for the money.

This laptop is perfect for the price,runs everything maxed with fee exceptions sky rim will run at 60 fps on ultra with shadows turned to medium and distant object detail on med,however after I installed an ssd and win 7 it will play on ultra with 60...

WINDOWS 8 IS TRASH..INSTALL WINDOWS 7 AND AN SSD ASAP ; A10 4600m is on par with high end i3 or low end i5 but an ssd helps it a lot,still for the price I can't complain,or drop an egg for that matter

Shame this has come out after I quit gaming...

 

Even though I quit gaming I saw this sucker for less than a grand here on the egg as an open box model. I just knew I'd never let myself live it down if I didn't buy it. I've wanted a machine like this ever since Alienware dropped their AMD gaming...

All AMD. Let's face it, this is a fanboi box ; It's quick for everyday productivity tasks ; Runs engineering applications rather well considering the price I paid open box ; Better battery life than is stated. 7 hours is easy to get around the house...

It looks horribly unprofessional ; Plastic abounds --and it's poor quality bubble plastic. I'm worried about durability to be quite frank ; The built in speakers are not as bad as some machines I have seen, but they aren't on par with most newer...

nightmare

 

set up rma. being told a laptop takes 7-10 days to process for a replacement after the 4 or 5 days it takes to get back to newegg. and i paid two day shipping. 2 to 3 weeks without a replacement is a bitter pill to swallow.

excessive light bleeding. white blotches against dark screen

Simply Awesome

 

No other machine is in the same class at this price point.

Fast, fast, fast. Top of the line Radeon GPU on a very affordable machine

Fan is loud, but that is to be expected on a machine with this level of performance

Consumer review by:

BANG for your buck

 

This GX 60 IS NOT the one with the built in overclocking and light up keyboard as displayed on the MSI website. Stil la good buy

High price to power ratio ; Quiet ; Fast ; Best AMD mobile graphics card and processor at the time

Windows 8
