Model: Do you want a high-end laptop? Check. Do you want it to be thin and light? Check. Do you want it to be cheap? Well, sorry, that is not possible.

There are too many 2 out of 3 rules in life. Same applies to laptops, electronics as well. If you want it to be high quality and ask for high performance at the same time, you can’t get it cheap. MSI’s GS75 8SE series are exactly in that category. The only thing that is not up to date is the CPU. It is from last year’s Intel 8th generation, but the performance difference vs. the 9th generation is only minimal. With the RTX 2060, you can play almost all the games on the market today in high resolutions. The screen is not 4K, but at least 144Hz. 1080p 144 Hz is better than 4K 60 Hz of course. Therefore, there is not much to complain about the screen.

Here is the thing, this device is 17.3 inch, but only weights around 2.2 kg. This is amazing. Mobile gaming is literally at your fingertips. Take it wherever you want to and enjoy, as long as you have a power outlet close by. Well, it is possible to use this beast for up to 5 hours on battery, but during gaming you can get a maximum of 2 or tops 3 hours and that’s it.

Besides those points, we get what we expect from MSI. Steelseries keyboards are sometimes hard to get used to, but once you got used to it, it is okay. The keyboard backlight is adjustable and comes with a few presets. You can customize the backlight through the provided software.

Speakers could be somewhat disappointing for some, but this is a minor point in my opinion.

There are of course smaller and lighter devices available. The thing with high performance is cooling. With the GS75, MSI does a good job. The problem with smaller devices is that they don’t have enough area for disposing of excess heat. Then what you end up is having a high end device, which can’t reach up to its performance. But with the GS75 8SE series, the case has enough size to leverage from, therefore emissions are not much of a problem for the user.

Overall, I can suggest this device without any hesitation. It is well balanced and easy to carry around. If you are a gamer and not after the very high end graphics, but want mobility, this is what you need. But if you want a smaller laptop, you should take a look at GS63 or PS63 series.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.25 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


93%: Indeed, this rating is very goodl There do not exist many notebook models, which are rated better.
