ASUS FX504GD-ES51 Review

MSI GS65 Stealth THIN-051 Review – Our Best Gamer


The MSI GS65 has a unbelievably gorgeous design measuring 0.7 inches and weighing 4.1 pounds, but on the inside we’ll find very impressive performance.

Who is this gaming laptop for?

We recommend this computer for the buyer who requires very high performance on the go for the cheapest price. It has the discrete, sophisticated look of a business notebook but is still able to deliver high gaming performance. The price may be hundreds of dollars higher than previously mentioned laptops, however that is definitely matched from a performance and design perspective.
