Reviews for the MSI GE65 Raider-052

85% MSI GE65 Raider 9SE review (Core i7, RTX 2060 90W, 240Hz screen)
Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
The MSI GE65 Raider is an excellent mid-tier gaming notebook. It's built nicer, it gets a better display, it performs better and offers a superior thermal module than most other laptops in its class, but it's also more expensive than most and lasts very little on a charge. That's why this is not a value proposition, but one of the better options for those of you who don't mind paying a premium for an improved experience in games and demanding workloads.

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
