MSI GL63 8RC

 

A budget-minded 15.6-inch gaming notebook, the MSI GL63 doesn't offer enough 3D performance or pizzazz to stand out from the pack.

Bright screen. Above-average speakers. Dual-drive storage. Well-behaved cooling system.

Expensive for GTX 1050 graphics (and that, the 2GB version). CPU performance isn't up to par. Some questionable keyboard-layout choices. Stiff touchpad buttons. So-so battery life.

Bottom Line: A budget-minded 15.6-inch gaming notebook, the MSI GL63 doesn't offer enough 3D performance or pizzazz to stand out from the pack.
