The MSI GS60 Ghost-242 featured on this review is pretty much like every other MSI product: fast, reliable and powerful. But that’s not everything. Let’s find out more about this laptop and understand why it is an excellent choice for gaming and exigent users.
MSI GS60 Ghost-242: Overview
Most users know MSI for their extremely powerful motherboards. During recent years, MSI has been also producing some of the greatest laptops. The MSI GS60 Ghost-242 has the best in terms of hardware, a beautiful design and quite compact dimensions, considering it is a gaming laptop.
This MSI laptop has a weight of just 4.2 lbs (slightly less than 2 kilos), and it is thinner than many other gaming laptops. That doesn’t mean that it has less power than its competitors. In fact it is a high-end gaming laptop with one of the fastest laptop processors currently available.
MSI GS60 Ghost-242: Pros
Apart from its compact dimensions for its performance, the MSI GS60 has some other interesting hardware highlights. Powered by the i7-6700HQ, which is a quad core processor from the 6th generation of Intel chips, this laptop has a high benchmark.
Having an Intel i7 quad core processor is essential for gaming laptops, but the GS60 has much more to offer. It comes with 16 GB DDR4 RAM which is just ideal to run heavy software, and most likely you will not need to expand it.
MSI GS60 Ghost-242: Cons
This laptop is nearly ideal for the current standards, and there is very few details that could be improved. One of them is that it comes with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M, which is pretty powerful, but for a high-end laptop with the specs of the Ghost-242, it would better to have a GTX 970M.
