Reviews for the MSI GS60 6QE-063UK
Source: PC Mag
The MSI GS60 Ghost Pro is an appealing laptop, providing high-end gaming performance in a svelte build. It has a wide array of port options and a surprising amount of storage space, rounded out with extra pluses like customizable backlighting. The display is nice, though, while the speakers are subpar and the short battery life takes away much of the reason to have a smaller system. The 970M graphics won't get you near 60fps (and may not guarantee 30fps in cutting-edge or future titles for long), so it's hard to ultimately recommend laying out the asking price.

The MSI GS60’s performance per dollar is difficult to beat. A comparable Alienware costs $2,250, while the upcoming revision of the Asus G501, with similar hardware, will cost about $1,800. The MSI’s comparatively low $1,700 price point starts to look mighty attractive among its competitors.

The MSI GS60 makes a good start with its slimline design and a high-quality screen. However, disappointing battery life and issues with heat, plus performance that's only on a par with rivals, mean that other machines have the edge.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
