MSI GS60 6QE (Ghost Pro 4K) Skylake Laptop Review

Rating: 9.0.

There is no doubt that MSI have been releasing some of the most exciting, feature-laden laptops in the last 24 months. Today we take a look at the new GS60 6QE which incorporates a Intel Core i7 6700HQ Skylake processor, 16GB of DDR4 memory, Nvidia GTX970m, M.2 SSD and 4K Ultra HD panel. MSI have managed to cram all this tasty hardware into a chassis that measures only 20mm at the thickest point.
MSI have been hitting a lot of headlines this year, and rightly so – their GT80 Titan for instance was a truly remarkable desktop replacement (review HERE) that didn’t just include two Nvidia GTX980m GPU’s in SLi, but it was the first laptop to incorporate a proper, fully fledged mechanical keyboard.

Even at £3,000+ MSI GT80 Titan sales were that good many retailers couldn’t get stock in fast enough to meet demand – it was sold out for many months. The MSI GS60 6QE we are analysing today doesn’t have quite the same price of admission –  a retail price set around the £1,500 mark.

Overclockers UK will have stock available in the coming weeks over HERE. We have also heard that a later revision, priced differently, will ship with a 6GB GTX970m installed, rather than the 3GB version inside our review sample.
