It's not the most powerful gaming laptop out there, but it's also only $999.
Unveiled at Computex in Taipei, MSI's GF63 is a gaming laptop that's not too thick, not too heavy, has a gorgeous slim-bezel display and is only $999.
The catch? It comes with an Nvidia GTX 1050 or 1050Ti GPU inside. A 1050Ti will be able to run most current games, though you may have to lower the resolution. It's not a particularly future-proof GPU to have.
Still, it's rare for a gaming laptop to sell for $999, and the ones that do are usually much less pleasing to the eye. (The price converts roughly to AU$1,300 or £745.) This rig is similar, almost identical in fact, to the MSI GS65 Stealth Thin, the Taiwanese company's newest flagship laptop.
That machine costs $1,899 (AU$3,499 or £1,890), and though it packs a much more powerful GTX 1070 graphics card, it's nice that we can get a similar premium design on a budget laptop. Its main competition is from Dell , whose Inspiron 7000 series also starts at under $1,000 and which can be configured with up to a GeForce 1060 GPU.
The GF63 comes with an eighth-generation Intel i7 CPU. RAM and storage options were listed by MSI.
It wasn't the only new product unveiled by MSI at Computex , as the gaming company showed off the Prestige PS24, a very non-gaming laptop for productivity users.
