Reviews for the MSI GE66 10SFS-072 Raider
On that note, if ever I was asked to choose between the GS66 Stealth and GE66 Raider, my decision would sway towards the latter for a number of reasons. Firstly, it’s relatively cheaper – I’m using the word loosely – compared to the former laptop, yet the performance of the GE66 Raider is almost identical to the GS66 Stealth. Second is the GE66 Raider’s weight. At 2.38kg, it’s only ever so slightly heavier than MSI’s “thin and light” gaming laptop, and given that its more angular design doesn’t present a problem when stowing it away in my backpack. Recommending this gaming laptop to people isn’t all that difficult.

With the MSI GE66 Raider, you get the power of a desktop replacement in a more portable 15-inch chassis. For $2,999, you get a gaming laptop packed to the gills with power thanks to an overclockable Intel Core i9 processor and Nvidia 2080 Super GPU. It’s an undeniable powerhouse whether you’re questing or crunching numbers –– it’s definitely one of the most powerful 15-inch gaming laptops on the market. And it’s got good battery life for a gaming laptop.

The MSI GE66 Raider looks set to receive a mixed reception. While it offers a brilliantly accurate display and a strong performance, all of that is overshadowed by overwhelming fan noise. Pricing is competitive with rival machines on the market, so key differences such as unique lighting setup and a middling keyboard could sway you either way.
