MSI Vector GP78HX Review
Source: Techtesters English
Ofwel, de MSI Vector kan zeker interessant zijn en een aanbeveling verdienen, mits op moment van aanschaf de configuratie en de prijs ervan op jouw wensen aansluit en je met de nadelen kan leven. Maar je zal er scherp op moeten letten of dat ook echt het geval is, want de besparing vergeleken met wat luxere modellen moet wel echt significant zijn.
Positive: Premium design; solid workmanship; comfortable keyboard; great connectivity; powerful hardware; high gaming performance; beautiful display. Negative: Poor webcam; mediocre speakers; heavy and bulky.
