Source: Comp Reviews English
The MSI GE60 laptop is designed as a more affordable and portable 15-inch gaming laptop and it does very well with this task. Its dimension are much more inline with a typical 15-inch laptop than gaming specific ones which does make it portable even though it features a large power brick. Performance is good both for gaming and general performance thanks to the quad core processor and NVIDIA graphics.

Still, it's hard to spend $1,249 only to be told you'll need to learn to live with dialed-down resolution and detail settings in your favorite games. The GE60 is a capable system that will save you a good deal of money, but if gaming performance is more important to you than productivity benchmarks, we think you'll want to check out the AMD-based MSI GX60 for only $50 more.

In terms of performance, MSI offers one of the most impressive gaming laptops for the price in the GE60. However, that affordability brings with it some trade-offs, namely an occasionally frustrating touchpad and a cheaper-looking design than premium rigs.

The MSI GE60 (2OE) has all the fundamentals a gaming PC should have: processing power, high graphics capability and plenty of connectivity, all for a low price. All the same, this first stab at the Haswell processor was not a hole in one, due in part to an under-sized battery and a noisy fan.

Colorful Mix. The MSI gaming collection is dominated by 17-inch models and includes a handful of 14 and 15-inch models to round off the offering. The new GE60H-i765M2811B is a member of the latter and offers an interesting design and high-class hardware. How does it fare in our in-depth tests? Find out in the following review.

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 On the other hand, these bricklike boxes make me mental with their outdated industrial design and dorm-room-chic vibe.

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.

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.

MSI reviews


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M: A mid-range GPU and the fastest GeForce GT as part of the 600M series

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M:

High-end graphics solution as part of the 600M series and the slowest enthusiast GTX model.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M:

High-End Graphics cards as part of the Geforce 700M series based on the Kepler architecture.

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

Intel Core i5:

3210M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.5 - 3.1 GHz

3230M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 GPU, core clock 2.6 - 3.2 GHz

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.  

3610QM:

An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

4700MQ: 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.

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.


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.


2.4 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.

2.674 kg:


75.69%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
