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

 

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.

Simple, elegant design ; Powerful ; Great trackpad for productivity

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

Like the Razer Blade, the Ghost plays to a specific niche: gamers who want the power of a full-fledged gaming PC without sacrificing portability or aesthetics. It's a small subset of the notebook market, but MSI's GS60 fits right in: It's thin,...

MSI GS60 6QE Ghost Pro Notebook Review

 

Gaming with Skylake. MSI has updated its GS60 by equipping it with a new Skylake processor. But this is not the only new feature of the new model. However, the drawbacks of the old model are still issues in the current gaming companion.

individual keyboard illumination, high system performance, aluminum chassis, thin construction, no throttling

limited maintainability, battery discharges under load, touchpad suffers from delays, meager runtimes, pulsating fans

Once again, MSI offers a nicely designed and slim gaming notebook. Fortunately, the current version features a USB 3.1 port. The second new feature is the DDR4-RAM. However, our main focus was the Skylake processor, which manages solid overall results....

MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K review

 

One of the first 3K gaming laptops impresses

Excellent screen ; Solid 3K performance ; Stylish design ; Fantastic keyboard

Runs extremely hot ; Lackluster battery life

Thin, light and 3K are what this grand gaming laptop excels at, but save some dough and go for the 1080p version.

MSI GS60 2QD-470UK review: The most totable gaming laptop in its field

 

New advances in graphics processor technology have been followed with promises of thinner and lighter gaming laptops. But the MSI GS60 2QD-470UK is the first high-performance notebook designed for gamers that really delivers on that promise.

While still not especially petite by the standards of some 15-inch laptops – its footprint is 14 percent larger than a MacBook Pro despite its smaller display – the MSI GS60 2QD-470UK does manage to keep within the magic size and weight figures of 2.0...

MSI Scores With Ghost: Desktop-Power Gaming in a Laptop [REVIEW]

 

MSI's GS60 Ghost is the best way to game on the go today. It's got enough power to run any game and make it look good, and it'll do it in style.

The power to play any game ; Excellent customizable keyboard ; Reasonably priced

Terrible trackpad ; Flimsy plastic case ; Limited hardware customization

If you like PC gaming, you will love the MSI GS60 Ghost.

MSI GS Series Ghost Special Edition Champagne Model

 

I like the laptop for the money. It's been absolutely awesome to game with (warcraft, neverwinter, etc) but if I had to do it again, I'd get one with a better battery. It's 2016 guys, batteries should last 5 hours MINIMUM.

Great chassis, very thin, cool lights and lit emblem, super fast boot, never locks up.

Horrible battery life. Watching youtube and browsing gives me about 2 maybe 2.5 hours. The mousepad picks up signals from your palm when you're typing and is annoying to use due to hesitations and insensitivity to taps.

Do not buy this Laptop for 1700$, go for an Alienware Instead!

 

Do not buy this MSI Product if you have a budget of around 1,700$ USD then go for Alienware. I used my aunt's account to purchase this, and as a Student my hard earned money has gone to water, I feel terrible with MSI's reply and feedback.

The config this laptop had seemed awesome, but it's so bad (the hardware's inside) I do not understand why. It's light weight.

After purchasing this laptop, in a month. I found that my Laptop would shutdown whenever I played any kind of games. Poor Battery of 1hr only. MSI say's they will not refund my money nor replace me a new laptop, my laptop is with for 1 and half months...

Best light, thin gaming laptop.

 

- I'd certainly recommend this product to others. If you want a non-bulky laptop with a high amount of performance and storage, this is a great laptop for you.

- Great cost to performance ratio - Great design - Amazing keyboard - Impressive Speakers (For a laptop)

- Wider than most 15.6 inches - Heats up after a while (this is very common with gaming laptops though, especially thin ones)

Perfect Gaming Laptop

 

My wife wanted a gaming laptop with personality, this laptop delivers!

Plays every game I've thrown at it at max settings.

None.

Mr.

 

I really wanted to like this laptop and support MSI. However, this problem will probably deterred me from purchasing anything from MSI in the future. It is a $1700 laptop when i bought it, and the quality doesn't live up.

The computer is thin, lightweight, easy to carry around. Good specs with a competitive price. Backlit keyboard is a plus

After just 9 months of use, the right fan is broken and started rattling whenever in use, causing the entire chassis to vibrate. Message MSI for support, hopefully they will reply on time. Had a HP laptop for 8 years and never have any problem.
