Is MSI GS65 a good recommendation for laptop?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

So for the last entire week, i've been thinking to buy MSI GS65 with GTX 1070 Max-Q on it because it has the best value than other thin and light gaming laptops like Razer Blade 15 (which is overpriced), Gigabyte Aero 15X (which is rare to find in Indonesia), and ASUS Zephyrus (the battery life is just horrendous). 

I'll probably but it this summer and hope the newer laptops can bring this laptop's price down. And if you think there are better laptops than GS65 for my needs (which i'll put below this) just give me a shout. 

 

My needs:

- Must have at least GTX 1060 in it

- CPU is at least an i7 (U-series or H-is not really matter even though i prefer H)

- 16 GB of RAM

- The accuracy of the display is at least 90% sRGB for video editing or photo editing (not really care about Adobe RGB), not really care about the refresh rate because i prefer            quality than quantity

- Less than 2kg (that's 4.4 pounds for Americans / British) 

- Have Thunderbolt 3

- Thin display bezels

- Good build overall

- Can be seen in under the Sun (Not a primary needs / just my niche)

 

And i'll link my previous forum about searching my new laptop;

Honestly the qc is piss poor and the thermals are horrible. If you do buy it make sure you buy it locally at a place with a good exchange policy.

Yeah, but i think MSI still have better QC than XPS' QC.

And i prefer to buy it online because i can get it at cheaper price than buying it locally, and i also shit at negotiating when i buy laptops in local stores apparently hahaha.

I think at least 5-6 hours realistically, even though i prefer 7-8 hours because i like to go to college without worrying that did i bring the charger with me. @GeneXiS_X

Looks like Aero 15 is the only choice (might want to wait for RTX2060 model)
