  • MSI Stealth 14 AI Studio Review (2024)

    MSI Stealth 14 AI Studio Review (2024)

    Around 2019, the laptop industry realised that many designers were buying gaming laptops because their discrete, 3D graphics processors were great for rendering and design tasks and, subsequently, Creator laptops were born. They’re essentially gaming laptops with slower, designer-friendly screens and drivers that eschew information about gaming performance for design-oriented tools and features. MSI uses…


  • MSI Raider GE68 HX 14V review

    MSI Raider GE68 HX 14V review

    The new MSI Raider is here and we’re a bit excited. It retains the gamers-first look of the previous model – rather than the older, please-everyone, gun-metal grey livery of the past – but, there are a few, new design flourishes, it sports the latest-gen silicon inside and it has a swanky, mini-LED screen. So,…


  • MSI Vector GP77 review (13V)

    MSI Vector GP77 review (13V)

    MSI’s Vector line is its lesser-known, gaming-laptop range. It eschews the glitzy RGB, pure-gamer bling of the company’s better-known Titan and (nowadays) Raider ranges, to deliver a top-tier gaming laptop, in understated clothing, that could live inside an office without causing a stir. We’ve been impressed with its forebears in the past (see our Vector…


  • MSI Stealth 16 Studio review (A13V)

    MSI Stealth 16 Studio review (A13V)

    Only yesterday we reviewed the hugely desirable MSI Mercedes laptop. However, the MSI Stealth 16 Studio A13V is essentially the same laptop without the race trim. As such, while it might not have the aggressive, eyebrow-raising looks, it’s got a few extra home comforts and doesn’t cost nearly as much. It’s also got a (very)…


  • MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes-AMG review (AV13VG – The MSI Mercedes Laptop)

    MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes-AMG review (AV13VG – The MSI Mercedes Laptop)

    We were blown away when MSI announced its partnership with Mercedes-AMG motor sport at Computex, earlier this year. We were also impressed when we spent some time with the early, non-retail samples of the MSI Stealth 16 Mercedes-AMG laptop. It wasn’t perfect, but now it’s been through our labs we can finally give it a…


  • MSI Katana 15 review (2023)

    MSI Katana 15 review (2023)

    MSI’s twin, budget gaming laptops, the Sword and Katana, quickly became popular when they launched, owing to them lying in an entry-level sweet spot of price, performance, styling and features. This updated MSI Katana 15 is noticeably cheaper than many other gaming laptops and, in a market where traditionally cheap rivals have ballooned in price,…


  • MSI Raider GE68 HX 13V Review

    MSI Raider GE68 HX 13V Review

    One of our favourite-ever laptops is finally back, but we barely recognised it. MSI’s Raiders have been the company’s de facto flagships for years in the face of its (physically) massive, top-tier Titan range delivering a tad too much disappointment in recent years. Now, the MSI Raider GE68 HX 13V has had an extreme makeover…


  • MSI Titan GT77 review (HX 13V | 2023)

    MSI Titan GT77 review (HX 13V | 2023)

    We’ve seen a few MSI Titans in our time. They can be imperious and all-conquering or imperious with a few niggles to the point where many people consider the MSI Raider to be MSI’s true flagship laptop. So, just how good is 2023’s MSI Titan GT77 HX 13V? Will it be the new best laptop…


  • MSI Cyborg 15 review (A13V | 2023)

    MSI Cyborg 15 review (A13V | 2023)

    At its recent ‘new gaming laptops’ event, MSI revealed a new budget model that aimed to provide great design and great value to gamers of any budget. It would be relatively thin and light and be adorned with translucent material to look great in any environment. This laptop is the MSI Cyborg 15 and our…


  • MSI Modern 14 C13M review

    MSI Modern 14 C13M review

    MSI’s Modern laptops are mid-range offerings that don’t excel at much but can offer great value as a general purpose, portable computer. The new, 13th Gen range has been modernised to a degree. But, are the updates are simply cosmetic and evolutionary? The Beige Rose MSI Modern 14 C13M certainly looks more than that. Let’s…


  • MSI Pulse 17 review (2023)

    MSI Pulse 17 review (2023)

    We finally have our first 13th Gen Intel laptop in for review. It’s also the first with an Nvidia RTX 4000 series GPU. Much as we’re dying to see how it fares, it’s worth noting that the MSI Pulse 17 is more of a budget gaming laptop and is unlikely to change the world –…


  • MSI Raider GE67 HX review

    MSI Raider GE67 HX review

    We’ve seen all manner of amazing MSI gaming laptops come through our doors in recent months, but this is the one we’ve been waiting for most. It’s a Raider – so chances are it’s going to be awesome – plus it has a 240Hz, UHD OLED screen! How can it possibly be bad? Will the…


  • MSI Titan GT77 review (12UHS)

    MSI Titan GT77 review (12UHS)

    MSI has been knocking it out of the park with its high performance laptops this year. Models from its Raider and Stealth ranges have topped our Best Laptop ratings for most of 2022. But, now here’s the new, top-of-the-line MSI Titan which is MSI’s bona fide flagship. While we’re perhaps a little disappointed that it’s…


  • MSI Prestige 14 review | 14Evo A12M

    MSI Prestige 14 review | 14Evo A12M

    To say we’re fans of the MSI Prestige range is an understatement. Never has a laptop provoked such a visceral reaction for both its looks and performance except, perhaps, for that time when Steve Jobs unveiled the MacBook Air. But that was back when we had a hot pink review model with discreet graphics for…


  • MSI Stealth GS66 review (12U) 2022

    MSI Stealth GS66 review (12U) 2022

    We found the 17-inch MSI Stealth GS77 to be the almost-perfect High Performance Laptop: it’s thin, light, portable and very very powerful. Now, here’s the 15.6-inch version, the MSI Stealth GS66. It has identical specs but a smaller chassis and a significantly lower price tag. But, having seen plenty of MSI Stealths over the years…


  • MSI Modern 14 review 2022 (C12M)

    MSI Modern 14 review 2022 (C12M)

    MSI’s Modern laptops tend to be mid-range, general-productivity, ‘Lifestyle’ laptops that offer reasonable quality at a reasonable price. They tend not to excel at much, but they can also be pretty good at most things. We haven’t seen one for a couple of years, but we quite liked the previous version. So, how will the…


  • MSI Raider GE77 HX review

    MSI Raider GE77 HX review

    The Raider GE76 is has been our number one ranked laptop for a few months now. It’s both phenomenally fast and (… and this is a big deal) actually available to buy. The latter fact is particularly pertinent at a time where supply-chain issues mean that some of the best laptops around right now are…


  • MSI Crosshair 15 review (B12U)

    MSI Crosshair 15 review (B12U)

    The MSI Crosshair 15 is one of MSI’s upper mid-range gaming laptops. This is an attractive proposition as the company’s top-tier models can get prohibitively expensive while this seeks to offer good all-round features, ergonomics and performance at a reasonable price. It also sits in Special Edition territory with a funky, yellow, internal livery and…


  • MSI GE76 Raider Review (Deluxe 12UHS)

    MSI GE76 Raider Review (Deluxe 12UHS)

    MSI has impressed the pants off us recently thanks to its power-packed, svelte Stealth GS77 and MackBook-Killing Creator Z17. However, both have a thin chassis which causes thermal throttling when things get hot. We weren’t too surprised when the Aorus 17 waltzed in and cudgelled the former over the head to take top spot in…


  • MSI Creator Z17 review (A12UX): The MacBook Killer

    MSI Creator Z17 review (A12UX): The MacBook Killer

    We were impressed with our first look at MSI’s last MacBook Killer, the Creator Z16, a few months ago. However, before we got to test the real thing, we got our hands on the brand-new version with a 12th Gen Intel processor. Amongst other things it’s apparently the first 17-inch laptop with a touchscreen-based stylus.…
