    MSI GF63 8RB

    Priced at $799, the MSI GF63 targets gamers who want to play the hottest titles without spending the family fortune. For the price, the laptop delivers impressive overall and graphics performance thanks to its Core i7 CPU and Nvidia Graphics. It can't play most games at more than medium or low settings, but it's still a solid workhorse for the price.

  • Best Max-Q Design

    MSI GS75 Stealth

    The MSI GS75 Stealth will give you everything you ever wanted in a slim gaming laptop. The laptop's incredibly stunning design is packed with a powerful Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU, a vivid 17.3-inch, 144-Hz panel and a great pair of top-firing Dynaudio speakers. However, if sleekness is your priority, MSI GS75 Stealth is one of the best light and slim premium gaming laptops you can buy.

How to Find the Right MSI Laptop

MSI has a massive lineup of notebooks that cover a gamut of uses. While the majority of its systems target gamers, the company also has workstations and multimedia machines in its stable. But before you get overwhelmed by the sheer number of laptops and configurations that MSI offers, check out our list of favorite MSI laptops above and our MSI cheat sheet, which explains the company's different product lines.

MSI placed second on our Best and Worst Gaming Laptop Brand report due to its willingness to innovate. The company is always among the first to implement new technologies, whether it's employing Nvidia Max-Q technology to stuff a powerful GTX 1070 GPU into a 0.7-inch-thick laptop or equipping one of its systems with new Cherry MX Silver key switches.

Here are a few quick tips to follow when searching for a gaming system:

  1. Don't buy a gaming laptop for low-end titles like World of Warcraft or Candy Crush. These games can easily be supported by an integrated graphics card.
  2. Avoid touch screens. They're more expensive and drain the battery.
  3. 17- or 18-inch laptops are typically more powerful, but the least portable while 13-, 14- and 15-inchers are easier to carry but often lack higher-end components.
  4. Prioritize the keyboard. Make sure you buy a laptop with responsive keys. Mechanical keyboards are the best..
  5. Avoid laptops with a low-res display (less than 1920 x 1080).
  6. Get solid state storage. Invest in an SSD for faster game installs and load times.
  7. Get a laptop with at least an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU and a HDMI 1.3 port if you want to be able to enjoy virtual reality games with an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.
