A couple months ago I reviewed MSI’s GT75VR, and even though I respect how hard it is to cram desktop-level components, ridiculously loud speakers, and a custom mechanical keyboard in a laptop body, gigantic 17-inch systems like that don’t really do it for me. That’s because weighing in at almost 10 pounds and…
When companies continually try to shoehorn features like curved displays or modular add-ons into devices where they don’t necessarily belong, I often find myself wondering why they’re working so hard to include features of such dubious value. But perhaps the best example of this are all the manufacturers trying to…
SKT T1 has long been the most dominant force in League of Legends, winning three Worlds championships. Given the results of today’s Mid-Season Invitational finals, it doesn’t look like that’s changing anytime soon, as SKT T1 beat G2 for the MSI title, 3-1.

If you’ve ever wanted to wear a PC on your back while you play VR games, lucky you! Because, your dreams are real.
The Mid-Season Invitational, one of League of Legends’ biggest annual eSports events, is getting started today. As in: right now. You can follow along on Riot’s Twitch channel. Woo!
Convertibles? Whatever. Ultrabooks? Idgaf. A damn huge laptop with a mechanical keyboard built right in? Now we're getting somewhere.
There are a few key things that keep PC gamers tethered to their desks, one of them being the awesomeness of having the "click clack" of a quality mechanical keyboard punctuate their gameplay. Impressive as they may be, laptops haven't been able to replicate that experience...yet. MSI to the rescue!
If you want a laptop that can play graphically intensive games, you're in a tough spot. Generally you can opt for something crazy expensive but portable, or something hulking and a little but cheaper. MSI's new GS30 Gaming Shadow notebook offers a middle ground: Take a slim laptop on the go, and plug into a…
I've been having a torrid love affair with skinny gaming notebooks for several years now. Recently, each one I've tried has had one thing in common — Nvidia's GeForce GTX 765M graphics. MSI's GS60 Ghost is the first super slim gaming notebook to utilize Nvidia's 800m mobile graphics line, and it's made a massive…
In preparation for this morning's stream of Dark Souls II, I played an hour of the first Dark Souls two and a half years ago. Nothing can possibly go wrong with this plan.
Gaming laptops have been stuck at 1080p and under for far too long. That all changes with the release of MSI's GT60 gaming laptop, with a display panel that goes all the way up to 2880-by-1620.
Those are Maingear gaming laptops right there. That's ridiculous. Also a beautiful trend that needs to be encouraged until our gaming laptops only exist in one dimension.
Razer's Blade Pro gets its first serious competition in the small form-factor gaming laptop category in the form of MSI's GS70, a 17-inch gaming laptop that's only .85 inches thick and weighs less than six pounds. My god.
MSi, the Taipei PC gaming company, released a new video that shows how to build a MSi Z87-GD64 Gaming PC. Or something.
As a PC gamer that enjoys getting my hands on the latest hardware, the most exciting feature of MSi's new GT70 laptop should be the 2.3GHz Core i7-3610QM quad-core Ivy Bridge CPU or its ridiculously speedy storage solution, a combination of a 7,200RPM 750GB hard drive and a pair of Samsung 64GB solid state drives.
Upon finishing up the initial download and install of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim from Steam and launching the game, the game determined that the optimal graphics settings for the MSI GT683DXR-423US gaming laptop I was playing on were "Ultra High", and that was good enough for me.
Chipset delays aside, Sandy Bridge has been one of the most anticipated and impressive releases we've seen from Intel in recent years. The first wave of processors have demonstrated superior efficiency as they swept aside considerably more expensive processors of previous generations, while consuming even less power.…
Unveiled at this year's CES, MSI's GE600 gaming notebook has about as uninspired a design as you can imagine. Line it up with ten other laptops and it will be the last one to stand out. So what happens when you boot it up?
Here's a shot of just a few of the laptops I currently have in the house. I even use some to play games on.
