Reviews for the MSI Katana GF76 11UD-050

The MSI GF76 Katana is a budget 17-inch gaming laptop with decent CPU performance. The RTX 3050 Ti GPU is a little underpowered for the latest AAA games, but you can still enjoy RTX graphics at a fraction of the cost of a more premium laptop. Although we expected better gaming performance, this laptop is still worth considering, especially if you're on an inflexible budget.

Before we conclude this review, we would like to remind you that this is one of the most affordable 17-inch gaming notebooks out there. Namely, one that has both Intel’s and NVIDIA’s latest technology inside. Having a low price is a double-edged sword, though. Yes, it can reach a broader audience, but at what cost? Well, the body is made mainly out of plastic (although the build quality is more than decent). The keyboard features only a Red backlight, and can’t be described as something groundbreaking.
