Although we didn't test this particular model, in our MSI GE66 Raider w/ Core i9 CPU review, the laptop won us over with its stellar graphics and overall performance. Its battery life was also impressive, lasting roughly 5 hours on our Laptop Mag Battery Test. We gave the MSI GE66 a 4 out of 5-star rating and the Editor's Choice award stamp of approval.

You should expect nothing less from this laptop's Core i7-10875H CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics hardware. That's plenty of oomph to handle even the most demanding PC games.
