We have reviewed several different MSI laptops and each and every one of them has been an exceptional gaming laptop. This model from them is certainly no exception. It is not MSI’s top of the line gaming laptop but it comes very close and costs a little less too.
The reason it’s so fast and effective at PC gaming is because of all the advanced technology that has gone into it. It’s hard to beat such things as its 7th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and 128 GB solid drive when it comes to performance and response time. Add incredible video and sound into the mix and you get one great gaming experience when you use this laptop.
