Gaming laptops are quickly becoming a must have for many laptop users as a way to enjoy gaming but also have a laptop that is capable of handling everyday tasks along with school or office work. The all new MSI GF63 Thin 10SCSR-655UK 9S7-16R412-655 has recently hit the market as a lower priced option for those that don’t want to spend the high price tag that some of the top end gaming models are asking for. Below we will review some of the benefits and downsides to this new MSI model and see if it might be the right gaming laptop option for you.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 256 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
- No matter if it is for gaming or general work having a high end processor is a must and this model includes the top of the line Intel Core i7 which has plenty of processing power
- It includes the mid-range Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 which comes with 4 GB of dedicated memory. This graphics card may not be the highest end on the market but is fully capable of handling most gaming needs without a problem
- It includes 7 heat pipes to keep all of this high end hardware cool and performing at its top level
- The full sized 15.6 inch display gives you a good gaming experience while still having the option to connect to an external monitor or TV for an even better picture
- It can give you up to 7 hours of battery life, which may not seem all that great when comparing to your average mid-range laptop but when compared to other high end gaming laptops is quite good
- Even though it is a 15.6 inch model when you start packing higher end gaming components into the device it quickly adds weight and at 3.42 KG it isn’t the greatest option for the on the go user
- Seeing that it includes a high end Intel core i7 processor it is disappointing that it only comes with 8 GB of memory which is pretty standard on lower end laptops
- Another area that disappoints is storage capacity as it only comes with 256 GB of space which for some will quickly be filled up
- No optical drive is included
The MSI GF63 Thin 10SCSR-655UK 9S7-16R412-655 isn’t the highest end gaming laptop you can find but does cover the basics pretty well even with its limitations. If you are really into gaming there are more expensive options you should probably consider but for the basic gamer that wants a more budget friendly option this looks like a good choice.
