MSI GE60 2PE Apache Pro 15.6in gaming notebook

Rating: 7.5.

Laptops are rarely given much credit when it comes to gaming ability, but the GE60 2PE Apache Pro from MSI has the potential to turn that idea on its head. Packing the ‘hot-off-the-shelf’ Nvidia GTX 860M, an Intel i7 4700 HQ CPU with 12GB of  DDR3 and a 128GB SSD – the specs, on paper, are impressive.

Read on to see how well this new MSI laptop does when we put it through some intensive testing.

    Where to buy? How much in PhP?

  • Jorge Conesa

    Thanks for this fantastic review (and all the other ones in the
    website). After reading your reviews I’ve decided to buy the MSI GE60 2PE Apache Pro, but I’ve got a doubt:

    Does it worth it to add an additional 128 GB
    SSD (for about 90euros) or an additional 8GB RAM (for about 85 Euros).

    I’ll use the computer mainly
    for photo editing (lightroom and photoshop) and occasionally for video editing.
    Thanks again!
