[REVIEW] MSI GS60 2QE Ghost Pro – My New Laptop

MSI GS60 2QE Ghost Pro Laptop ReviewWith my faithful Apple MacPro finally giving up the ghost after 5 years of good service, it was time to go back out to market again for a new personal laptop.  I certainly get my moneys-worth out of the laptops I own, and since I only buy a laptop every 3-5 years I wanted to make sure I chose the right one for me.

I like the Apple MacBook range of laptops, though this time I was after something a little different.  A laptop that I could use for both work and pleasure.  I now have an occasional spare 10-20 minutes during the evening, when Baby TechHead is going down to sleep, where I can get in some casual gaming, so this had me looking in the direction of a Windows based gaming laptop.

After a lot of research and consideration of what I was after in a new laptop, I decided on an MSI GS60 2QE Ghost Pro gaming laptop.  I like the slim form factor, and the more than ample CPU and GPU horsepower under the hood for playing any games I throw at it, along with its sufficient  versatility for any creative work I perform on it.

I thought I’d create a quick video of the unboxing of my new laptop, first impressions and my thought process behind selecting the MSI GS60 2QE.


What do you look for in a laptop, eg: form factor, technical specification or something else?  Why not leave a comment below and share you thoughts – it’d be great to hear from you.
