Comment

Model: Compared to its gaming series counterparts the MSI PE60 2QE-051NL looks tamer. It aims at those looking for performance in a more elegant package. The lid comes in beautiful silver brushed metal finish and this color scheme is carried over inside. The full-sized tile-style keyboard is comfortable for extended typing and productivity. The 15.6 inch anti-glare display features FHD resolution. Colors and brightness are even good even in bright outdoor conditions.

The Windows 10 system comes with an Intel Core i7-5700HQ processor, up to 16 GB RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M GPU and a combination of up to 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD. Audio quality is not just an afterthought. The MSI PE60 2QE-051NL comes with an audio setup consisting of four speakers and a subwoofer, which delivers impressive clarity and loudness. Other features include a HD webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, an HDMI out, a Mini-DisplayPort, a card reader, a USB 2.0 port and three USB 3.0 ports. The MSI weighs 2.3 kg, which is quite low for its performance, and comes with a 6 cell battery.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » 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.  
4720HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.3 kg:

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