Most Favorable Review

All around great laptop for the price

MSI GL63 8RE-629 15.6" IPS FHD GTX 1060 6 GB VRAM i7-8750H 16 GB Memory 128 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home Gaming Laptop -- ONLY @ NEWEGG
MSI GL63 8RE-629 15.6" IPS FHD GTX 1060 6 GB VRAM i7-8750H 16 GB Memory 128 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home Gaming Laptop -- ONLY @ NEWEGG

Pros: - Lightweight - Smooth non-glossy finish - Powerful enough to run most games even some of the lesser optimized ones - Keyboard has a solid almost mechanical feel to it - While in casual use, the laptop is silent - The cooling solutions seem to do an efficient job at dispersing heat

Cons: - The overabundance of stickers on the base of the laptop is a minor annoyance. There were three stickers placed below the keyboard

Overall Review: I did not review the specs of the system solely because they are no specific to this build. I focused more on the build quality of the product. The only other issue I had with the laptop is the positioning of the audio jack on the left rather than on the right. I wouldn't necessarily list that as a con because that is just a matter of preference. Lastly, I want to end on a personal note. My reasoning for purchasing this laptop was not to game on. I am a game developer, specifically focusing on level design. This means that I build levels and environments for games. Although I use my desktop to develop on primarily, it is still nice to have a laptop to demo my games from a remote location without breaking the bank. Some of my own test environments and games that were not optimized yet seemed to run quite well on this laptop. Well, I hope this help someone with their decision. Have a nice day!
