Reviews for the MSI GL63 8RC-069US

80.6% MSI GL63 8RC (i5-8300H, GTX 1050) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Excellent for the price. At only $900 USD, the entry-level MSI GL63 is able to play most if not all modern titles at 1080p with some tweaked settings for smoother frame rates. The stereo speakers are surprisingly decent and fan noise is relatively low for such an inexpensive gaming machine.

A budget-minded 15.6-inch gaming notebook, the MSI GL63 doesn't offer enough 3D performance or pizzazz to stand out from the pack.
