Despite the bulky aesthetics we applaud how rounded the MSI system is, especially for the price, you get a pretty good GPU, display quality, built-in audio and battery life.

The MSI GX60 1AC does have some things going for it, like the sound quality and battery life... But the processor is entirely inadequate to support the graphics card, stopping it from providing any quality gaming, and the picture quality is...

On paper, the AMD-powered MSI GX60 had to seem like a good idea, and I'm not even convinced it actually isn't one. Using a less expensive CPU to force the price tag down and going whole hog on the GPU isn't that uncommon among custom built desktop PCs,...

After all the cost cutting, MSI's GX60 offers almost as much gaming performance as the company's similar GT60 0NE, and for $700 less! A majority of the savings comes from swapping Intel's Core i7-3630QM for an AMD A10-4600M, and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 680M...

CPU speed isn't its strong suit. But if you're looking for a mid-sized, low-priced gaming laptop with a 1080p screen, Blu-ray, and 30-plus frames per second, MSI's $1,299 GX60 is tough to beat....

At the end of the day the MSI GX60 is a very capable gaming notebook that delivers great value with a few minor shortcomings. It's nice to see MSI include useful extras like a gaming mouse and backpack, but considering the gaming audience we would have...

But it's the AMD A10 CPU that's the real sticking point. It's just about tolerable for most current games. But there's absolutely no performance in hand for future games. And it makes the AMD Radeon HD 7970M dedicated graphics chip seem a little futile and the GX60 ultimately a bit off-target.

There's no doubting the MSI GX60 makes for a compelling package on paper. Graphics grunt is typically what defines games performance. So why not wind back a little on the CPU in return for lower pricing and better battery life. That's exactly what MSI...

I needn’t remind you dear reader that the AMD Radeon HD 7970M performs on par with the Nvidia GTX 680M and is literally one of the fastest mobile GPU’s on the planet right now, to the point that the performance is double what anything lower (from both AMD and nvidia) can offer.

The MSI GX60 is an affordable gaming notebook that delivers impressive graphics performance, a full HD matte screen and superb battery life.

Nevertheless, it is not easy to come to a final verdict. The GX60 is designed for casual gamers considering the CPU issue. Enthusiasts will have to look elsewhere with something containing ‘Intel’.

By KitGuru on 80

The omission of a solid state drive is the biggest performance issue for the GX60. The large 7,200 rpm mechanical drive is about as good as you can get in a 2.5 inch form factor, but it is still limited to around 120 MB/s which can cause the machine to grind at times.

International Review By Les Numériques on 40

Malgré quelques bons points (audio, autonomie...), ce portable souffre d'un processeur sous-dimensionné par rapport à la carte graphique et à l'usage auquel il se destine, à savoir le jeu. L'écran de piètre qualité contribue lui aussi à tirer la note...

Das MSI GX60-A10797287B wagt sich mit einer AMD-Plattform gegen die geballte Intel-Konkurrenz. Das Ergebnis fällt etwas enttäuschend aus, denn bei Multimedia-Anwendungen bietet das System im Vergleich zu Gaming-Notebooks mit Intel-CPUs wenig Leistung....
