Gaming laptops are shrinking, but few challenge Intel’s Ultrabooks for size. The MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro manages it with dimensions that scarcely seem believable for a gaming notebook: it’s 19.9mm thick and weighs 1.96kg.
The MSI GS60 Ghost Pro delivers a midrange gaming laptop that brings plenty of bang for the buck, and several small touches that will delight gamers.
There’s plenty of power inside this machine, and MSI has squeezed top-level components into a chassis that’s slimmer and lighter than any gaming notebook we’ve yet seen. The screen and keyboard also excel, and the speakers are good. It’s a contender if rivals are expensive, but only worth a purchase if you’re going to be using it at a power source and on a desk – as poor battery life and thermal performance are the MSI’s key problems.
