Soldier in 14-inch format MSI has it difficult in the 14-inch compact gaming notebook market. Except for its good battery life, the GE40 can't set itself apart from the (mostly more expensive) competition. While the Razer Blade (85%) can win over...

The GE40 is an uncommon blend of performance and portability that had, before now, not yet been accomplished to this extreme. It’s safe to say that it offers enough power to run even modern titles on medium settings (and some even higher) without many...

The MSI GE40-2OC is an impressive little laptop. It's the not the lightest or most silent 14-inch laptop. On the contrary, it packs as much powerful hardware that's possible in a very small package. 1.9 kg of gaming power, consisting of a quad-core...

MSI takes on the ritzy Razer Blade—for hundreds of dollars less—with a thin and light 14-inch gaming laptop featuring quad-core, fourth-gen Core i7 and GeForce GTX 760M muscle. It won't set frame-rate records, but it'll deliver satisfying gaming...

The truth is, we’re probably still a couple years away from seeing this level of performance in a laptop this size that runs cool and quiet; physics can be such a drag, but fixing the LCD would go a long way towards addressing our complaints. As it stands, we can only sigh and think about what might have been.

As far as gaming machines go, it’s hard to predict where this will fall. Yes, it lists some impressive specifications; but it’s much too early to say how the competition will stack up. On its own, the performance is not bad. Benchmark scores are higher than any I’ve experienced, although nobody gives me many gaming notebooks to play around with.

This laptop offer more space, powerful enough, nice graphics, sounds good and all the ports are included. But no optical drive, less battery power and little heavy and the overall design made us very sad. If you look on the processor side, graphics and storage this will do the job only things is that you have to buy an extra optical drive.

They say ‘good things come in small packages’ and if MSI have a say in it, then their new 14 inch GE40 with ‘Dragon Eyes’ will be winning your heart. This diminutive gamers laptop features the latest Nvidia GTX760M graphics, paired up with the quad...

For the MSI GE40, what you are paying for really are the components in its chassis: the fantastically frugal and capable Intel Core i7-4702MQ, the powerful GeForce GTX 760M and the pair of blazing quick mSATA SSDs.

The MSI GE40 packs very powerful specs and long battery life into a lightweight 14-inch laptop, but it runs hot when gaming.

Une petite centrale à elle seule. MSI prend beaucoup de risque avec son GE40. Composants de pointe ultra-rapides griffés Intel et Nvidia le tout dans un châssis compact et poids-plume de 14 pouces. Qu'en est-il de la nuisance sonore et de la chauffe...

Nech to vyznie akokoľvek, za najväčšie negatívum testovaného notebooku považujem absenciu SSD. Päťstogigabajtový pevný disk je podľa môjho názoru v roku 2013 jednoducho prežitkom. Iste, chápem potrebu objemného úložného priestoru na hernom notebooku,...

De MSI GE40-2OC is een bijzonder apparaat. Het is niet de lichtste of stilste 14 inch laptop. Nee, dit is een laptop met zoveel mogelijk krachtige hardware in een heel kleine verpakking. Een laptop met een gewicht van 1,9 kilo, voorzien van een...

У MSI получилось создать на редкость небольшой игровой ноутбук, при этом разместив в нём мощные комплектующие — и это главное. Значит, должно получиться и у других, и скоро игровые ноутбуки превратятся из «недвижимости» в мобильные девайсы, которые...
