Comment

Model: The MSI GF75 Thin 9SC-039XES is a lightweight and decent performance gaming laptop. It claims to be 16 % thinner, 8 % smaller and 15 % lighter than the average 17-inch gaming laptop in the market. This portable 17-inch gaming laptop is only 22~23.1 mm thin and 2.2 kg light, which is a figure typically seen on a conventional 15.6-inch laptop instead of a 17-inch laptop. For design, the laptop features a metallic top and keyboard cover paired with a futuristic design that's packed for battle. Besides that, it has a drop-down hinge design with ergonomic gaming experience. For the display, users can get a clear view of the game at any angle with brilliant clarity and contrast with the IPS level display and true-to-life visual. The four-sided thin-bezel design and 88 % screen-to-body ratio allow users to enjoy more immersive gameplay in an even more compact chassis. The hardware specification of the laptop includes an Intel Core i7-9750H processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q graphics adapter, 16 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD for storage. The 8th generation processor powers up with 40 % performance gain over the previous generation with the extra cores. GeForce Max-Q is an innovative technology that squeezes all the performance of NVIDIA GeForce GPUs into the world's fastest, quietest slim laptops. These hardware specification allows users to play most of the game titles at high detail.

As a gaming laptop, cooling is also one of the highlights and essential features. The MSI GF75 features a fine-tuned thermal design to be noticeably quieter and cooler under load, easily blending into any environment. It has two fans, four heat pipes and four exhausts. Developed under an exclusive partnership with BlueStacks, the MSI APP Player brings seamless gaming experience between mobile games and PC platform and leverages customized features as specific keyboard lighting and better graphics with multi-task works. As for battery life, the MSI GF75 Thin is all juiced up for unplugged productivity and entertainment. It claims to have 7+ hours of battery life according to the MobileMark 2014 standard. Audio has also been given more emphasis with Nahimic 3 and Audio Boost, which enhance in-game 3D surround sound and make finite control over music, movies, and conference calls. They also enhance audio detail by 30 % with the built-in AMP (Audio Power Amplifier) and golden audio jack. As a conclusion, the MSI GF75 Thin 9SC-039XES is definitely a lightweight and high-performance laptop. Light weight, big screen, high performing processor and price tag are looking promising for this model. However, gamers will need to carry the power adapter for a full day out.
