How to open MSI Thin GF63 (12Vx) - disassembly and upgrade options

MSI Thin GF63 (12Vx) review – good budget gaming laptop with some flaws
Source: Laptop Media English
Is the MSI Thin GF63 (12V) a true budget gaming laptop? The answer is yes but there are some compromises in the mix which is expected. The build quality is adequate, the lid (that can’t be opened with a single hand) and the top side of the base are made of brushed aluminum. The backlit keyboard is quiet during typing or gaming and has large keycaps. On the other hand, the touchpad is smooth but the unit is moving during usage and it makes loud click sounds – that’s not good. The gaming performance of the machine is normal for the hardware. You can play Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on 1080p with 66FPS on Ultra or Far Cry 6 with maxed-out visual quality with 71FPS – not bad. The notebook that we bought has just one stick of 16GB DDR4 memory which is hindering the overall performance by some degree. As always, a memory in dual-channel mode is a better choice.

MSI GF63 Thin (12VE-066US) Review
Source: Digit week English
The MSI GF63 Thin is about as cheap as gaming laptops get, and for the price you get a capable machine that’ll handle some important scenarios. It handles everyday esports and has the processing power for everyday computing. The keyboard is decent, and the latest MSI is lighter than any competitor out there. Elsewhere though, the MSI GF63 struggles. Other laptops offer more gaming and processing power. If you’re happy to spend a little more, the Asus ROG Strix G16 offers the latest hardware (Intel Core i7-13650HX, RTX 4060 GPU), a bolder screen, better battery life, and a more robust, feature-packed enclosure. Overall, the MSI GF63 Thin is slim, light, and handles 1080p gaming fine – and it isn’t very expensive. It’ll do the job if you’re looking for a laptop for a combination of work and play without going far from a power source. Ultimately, the latest MSI GF63 Thin 12VE-066US is a step up from entry-level rigs, and it won’t leave you with any regrets.

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.
