MSI GE60 Review: Mainstream Mobile Maxwell

 

Earlier this year, NVIDIA launched their latest and "greatest" GPU architecture, codenamed Maxwell. The first parts launched on the desktop in the form of the GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti, but given the improvements in efficiency relative to Kepler, Maxwell...

After testing and using the MSI GE60 for several weeks, I've come away reasonably impressed with what's being offered. It's not the fastest or flashiest laptop around, and it's not the cheapest either, but it gets most of the important areas right when...

MSI GE60 (GTX 960M) Notebook Review

 

Solid gamer. The MSI GE60 is a powerful, yet affordable, gaming notebook. The laptop performs well but suffers from high noise and temperature emissions.

Matte FHD IPS screen, Decent performance, Free mSATA slot, Lots of storage space, Maintenance flap

Cover too easy to deform, Modest brightness

The MSI GE60-2QEWi781 offers sufficient performance to run any game fluidly. However, the laptop gets quite loud and hot. On the bright side, the laptop is equipped with decent input devices and an HDD with lots of space. The user can even install an...

MSI GE60 2PE Apache Pro 15.6in gaming notebook

 

88 Flares 88 Flares × Laptops are rarely given much credit when it comes to gaming ability, but the GE60 2PE Apache Pro from MSI has the potential to turn that idea on its head. Packing the ‘hot-off-the-shelf' Nvidia GTX 860M, an Intel i7 4700 HQ CPU...

Amazing laptop, unfortunately...

 

Laptop has worked absolutely great for gaming and regular usage

I have had the laptop for roughly 4 months, I have been casually using it as a 2nd computer, using it at most 1~4 hours every couple days ; Starting a few days ago the laptop began to not boot up, I would power it on with the Power Button, the MSI...

Good Laptop- Minor Issues

 

Computer performed flawlessly, in spite of the network card issues. I would thoroughly recommend this computer to anyone interested in it. I believe what I got was a fluke, and MSI customer support had full intentions of getting me a replacement-an...

Fast ; Picture Quality ; Mobility ; Looks ; Lighted Keys ; Killer Networking

Network card failed, causing intermittent issues with online gaming. Could have had it replaced, but chose to return for another brand. Fans failed on me a few times causing the case to get extremely hot. Both issues intermittent, possibly firmware issues

Great Gaming Laptop but...

 

- It's really a shame about the heat with the laptop. MSI should really have added more fans or at least add more copper piping to the cpu. The gpu didn't get nearly as hot when playing games (65-70C MAX) - I'm not going to RMA it, I'll just use a...

This laptop is great for gaming. I usually play Minecraft and it runs great (150+ fps with no limiter on med/high settings and an HD texture pack, I usually limit it at 60fps though) ; Very quick for almost everything (Photoshop, Chrome, Virtual Box) I...

Heat ; This laptop gets insanely hot for me when playing games or doing tasks like Photoshop or watching 4K video. It used to get 92C+ when playing minecraft but now I got it down to around high 70s to 80s when gaming because I decided to replace the...

MSI GE60 Apache-469

 

The case is a combination of aluminum and plastic. Not bad overall, though the screen does feel a little light.

Very fast laptop for what I use it for. STO, War Thunder, etc. all seem to play very well... almost better than my desktop. I originally purchased this for running AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, etc. All work flawlessly

This does get very warm while under a load. Turning on the turbo fan really helps, but it can get a bit uncomfortable on the lap... nothing that a cooling pad didn't fix. Battery life is relatively short (2 hrs.) or so, but it is a gaming laptop with a...

UPDATE!!!!!

 

I watched a movie on the laptop and then closed the lid. I went to work and when I came home and opened the laptop *BAM* solid white screen. IT's not like I did anything out of the ordinary. I may have played Diablo III Reaper of Souls for about 8...

None at the moment. It's a pretty door stop

The brushed aluminum gets very HOT when gaming. Onboard mic doesn't work unless you plug something into the mic jack and then unplug it. After a little over one month of limited use the LCD screen is a completely blank, white screen

MSI ge60

 

Awesome laptop. Great for gaming with the Nvidia 850m and i7. It plays everything on high settings pretty much with is very nice for a laptop. The keyboard is very solid and pleasant to type on. The back lighting is a big plus and you can make it do...

The only con i have is that it is a fingerprint magnet. The laptops lid is made of brushed aluminum and whenever you touch it to close the lid you WILL get a smudge on it. Its no big deal because you can just wipe it down but it does kind of get ugly...
