The MSI GT75 Titan will satisfy even the most performance-hungry gamer. For starters, you've got an overclockable 8th-gen, six-core Intel Core i7-8950HK CPU which makes it a multitasking monster. Then you've got the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, which is capable of delivering excellent frame rates regardless of settings. There's also a gorgeous wide-angle display, booming speakers and the best keyboard we've ever used on a gaming laptop. Sure, you lose out on portability, but with such a great system, we doubt you'll be scrambling to go outside anytime soon.

Some gamers don't want a system that doesn't light up like a techie disco ball. They're looking for something that performs like a gaming laptop but looks like a business notebook. For them, there's the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin. For $1,999, you get a laptop with powerful gaming and overall performance, excellent audio and a comfortable, customizable keyboard. It's also one of the first gaming systems to feature Intel's new 8th gen, six-core Coffee Lake processor, which promises 20 percent more performance than its predecessor, making this model a good system for productivity.
Someone cue up Kanye's "All Of The Lights!" With its massive light stripes, RGB keyboard and USB lights, the GS63 Raider RGB glows to the point of overkill. And once you look past the illumination, you get a GTX 1070 and an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, as well as a super-comfortable keyboard. It's an absolute spectacle that's worth the price of admission.
The MSI WS63VR 7RL is a powerful workstation in a body that's smaller than you would expect. It can handle any productivity task you throw at it, and it's even ready for some gaming and virtual reality on the side. Thanks to its Nvidia Max-Q design, the WS63VR 7RL weighs a scant 4.1 pounds and measures 0.7-inches thick. It also has a solid 4K display, creating a powerful workstation that stands head and shoulders above the competition.
A low-end gaming rig in a conservative business laptop's clothing, MSI's PE60 Prestige ($1,199 to start; $1,249 as reviewed) looks equally at home in the boardroom and the living room. Thanks to its Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU and optional quad-core Core i7 CPU, this 15-inch laptop packs enough power to play the latest games, though not always at high settings. The comfortable keyboard and useful software will also appeal to entry-level gamers who also need a laptop for work.
