73% MSI PE60 Prestige Review: Business in Front, Party in the Back
Source: Notebookreview.com English
As the title of this review playfully suggests, the MSI PE60 Prestige offers a distinct advantage among competing 15-inch gaming laptops because it doesn’t look like a typical gaming laptop with over-the-top design elements. In fact, the PE60 looks like a relatively boring silver-and-black business notebook until you get close enough to notice it has a high-quality screen and packs a gamer-friendly Nvidia GeForce graphics card. This split personality makes the MSI PE60 Prestige an obvious choice for students who want to get an entry-level gaming laptop but have to satisfy parents who insist that the main purpose of a PC is for doing school work.

70% MSI PE60 Prestige
Source: Laptop Mag English
While billed as an elite notebook that can handle work and play, the $1,119 MSI PE60 Prestige falls a bit short of its namesake. The notebook has a colorful display and enough CPU and graphics muscle for productivity and gaming, as well as speakers that are loud enough to illuminate your jam sessions and game marathons.

MSI PE60 2QE-051NL

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.

MSI PE60 6QE
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky English
Well, I’ll keep it short. The MSI PE60 6QE is a nice gaming laptop under $1000, but it’s hard to justify the price, unless you really need the extra year of warranty or global warranty. The PE60 6QE has good qualities and feature set, with good set of connection ports and storage options.

60% MSI PE60 Prestige Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
With its silver, professional stylings, the MSI PE60 Prestige might not look like a powerful gaming or multimedia laptop, but that's its most obvious use. The combination of an Intel Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics is more than enough to play most games, albeit not at their highest settings.
