Reviews for the MSI GE60-2PE-029UK

85% MSI fits new Nvidia graphics into a smaller laptop
Source: CNet English
I often have mixed feelings about gaming laptops. On one hand, I love how even a midline gaming laptop can run rings around next-gen game consoles, and the current crop of CPUs and GPUs make this the best time ever to be a PC gamer. On the other hand, these bricklike boxes make me mental with their outdated industrial design and dorm-room-chic vibe.

80% MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003
Source: Computer Shopper English
Overall, the MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003 is a remarkably well-rounded gaming laptop. For just $1,349—less than half the cost of a high-end, heavyweight 17.3-inch rig—it offers a comfortable keyboard, vivid 1080p screen, rich and well-balanced audio, and solid gaming performance, all wrapped up in an attractive, lightweight aluminum build.

81% MSI GT60 2PE Dominator Pro
Source: Bit-Tech English
The MSI GT60 2PE Dominator Pro is clearly an accomplished performer. It packs in masses of powerful hardware, has a good keyboard and finishes it off with a mostly excellent 3K resolution screen. However, almost inevitably when it comes to gaming laptops we do have some issues. Firstly the design and build is just a little below what we'd hope for given the price.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
