Reviews for the MSI GE65 Raider 9SF-049US

84.7% MSI GE65 Raider 9SF Laptop Review: Huge Improvements Over the GE63 | Notebookcheck
The GE65 is 19 percent smaller and 12 percent lighter than the outgoing GE63 while retaining all the same ports and most physical features. It's one of the lighter 15.6-inch gaming laptops you can buy from MSI outside of the GS65.

The MSI GE65 Raider 9SF doesn’t look as good as its rivals, but it has huge power levels for work and play – alongside good ergonomics and a great 240Hz screen.

80% MSI GE65 Raider review: Portable power, understated glory
Source: Pocket Lint English
A lightweight, portable and capable gaming machine that's seemingly got it all. Sure there are a few minor niggles - such as the keyboard layout and typically limited battery life - but the GE65 Raider is pleasing in plenty of areas.
