Reviews for the MSI Raider GE68 HX 13VF
Source: PC Mag
The Raider GE68HX 13VF is an intriguing if flawed confluence, set apart by its powerful hardware. It may not be the most effective gaming machine you can get for the price, but it makes up for that with a bit of extra curb appeal and a heap of CPU performance that can help it excel as a workstation during the day and gaming machine at night (ideally with an external monitor). The Costco-exclusive model's $1,799 price is one of its more compelling aspects (and its screen one of its least), as the higher-spec configurations will make for unfavorable races with Lenovo’s higher-end Legion laptops.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
