The MSI Raider GE78 HX is a monster of a gaming laptop, but it’s not flawless. You get the power and display, which are the two key components for a gaming notebook, but you get short changed with battery life and the touchpad. If you’re looking for a gaming laptop with better battery life, try the Asus ROG Strix Scar 16. You get double the battery life. But overall, if you ignore the touchpad, the battery life, and the obnoxious price, the Raider has plenty to offer.

I enjoyed my time with this MSI Raider GE78 notebook and I expect this to be a worthy contender in its class of performance and gaming laptops. The excellent build quality and beautiful design, the full set of ports, the beautiful display, and the punchy audio are all reasons that could steer you toward this unit over other options. And then there’s the excellent performance in demanding loads and games, where this performed a little bit better than most of the other similar configurations we’ve reviewed (with some exceptions in CPU sustained loads). Overall, these add up and I think they affect the overall competitiveness of this series. In the end, though, you’ll be the judge of the overall worth of this series based on your needs and preferences, compared to the other options out there. But there are quite a few of those, including a handful of 18-inch laptops with a larger 18-inch display, arguably better cooling, lower prices, and still about the same size and weight as this 17-inch Raider. Anyway, this is pretty much my review of the 2023 MSI Raider GE78 series. Looking for your thoughts, feedback, and questions in the comments section down below.

This notebook’s display covers 98% of the sRGB color gamut and features accurate color representation thanks to our Gaming and Web design profile. Furthermore, the 240Hz refresh rate has quick pixel response times. This ensures a really smooth image, even in fast-paced games. Now, how many laptops do you know that have a total of 6 USB ports? Well, this one does, and one of them is a Thunderbolt 4 connector. The absence of an SD card reader is disappointing, but not unexpected, given the history of Legion devices in recent years. All in all, the Legion Pro 7 (16″, 2023) is a really good gaming machine. As with every other laptop out there, it has its downsides, one of which is its price. However, it is probably the most down-to-earth-looking gaming notebook in this segment of the market.
