Reviews for the MSI GE63VR 7RE Raider-036
The good definitely overshadows the bad for this member of the Raider family, packing as it does a great 120Hz display, game-worthy GPU, stunning speakers and a simply gorgeous keyboard. Just make sure you can live with the noise and poor battery life.

Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
