Reviews for the MSI GE66 Raider 10SFS
The MSI GE66 Raider 10SFS aims to appeal to passionate gamers who are looking for a particularly powerful 15-inch laptop. A GeForce RTX 2070 Super (without Max-Q design) and a 240 Hz panel are included in the package.
The MSI GE66 Raider retails at a price of RM11,999, a price that I’d say is decent enough for what it offers under the hood. It’s definitely more than powerful enough to run today’s AAA games out there in the market.

With all that said: This is $2,899. It’s a luxury product, and the mind-blowing design will not have much of an impact on your daily experience — but the inconvenient keyboard and the unfortunate the software glitches I experienced certainly do. If you don’t think the Dragonshield’s panache is something you need, you should be just fine with a regular GE66 Raider, a GS66 Stealth, or a Razer Blade 15, which should deliver comparable frame rates with better battery life and (in Razer’s case) more reliable software.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

79.53%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
