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.

Great gaming laptop

 

"This laptop works great if your main goal is to game. You do need to have the laptop charging to use it at it's full potential which is no issue for myself. The graphics are great and the laptop runs without any issues. The trackpad isn't the best but...
