Merits

  • Performance: This product features the powerful Intel Core i7 Quad-Core (7th Gen) and is accompanied by 8 gigs of RAM, which can be extended up to 32 GBs, depending on the gamers’ requirements. 1 TB HDD is a lot of storage capacity to save multimedia or even games. All these features combined, are capable enough to handle even the high-demanding tasks like video editing.
  • Graphics: The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, though not powerful enough to satisfy hardcore gaming, can easily handle high-end games in medium settings in 1080p resolution.
  • Price: Unlike the high-speed laptops, priced high enough for occasional gamers, this laptop is a budget-friendly piece at £860.
  • Portability: While all gaming laptops suffer from a shortcoming of being bulky, this laptop weighs 2.2kgs, which can be considered easy to carry around.

Demerits:

  • Display: MSI has cut the price of this decently configured product by compromising with its display. The dim display, terrible viewing angles and the very low contrast ratio are enough to disappoint you with the viewing experience.
  • No Thunderbolt 3 ports: The laptop comes with a USB-C port, but it is not Thunderbolt-enabled and there is no Thunderbolt 3 supported port. This implies that an external GPU dock (such as Razer Core) or a monitor cannot be connected to this laptop.
