GTX 970M is up there with the best top of the range graphics cards, performs better than the GTX 880M and a little less than the GTX 980M. You can play even the most demanding games at FHD resolution and the highest settings, while using the anisotropic filtering and anti-aliasing without problems. It also has the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 that performs around 30 % faster than the standard HD 4000. Aluminium black MSI GS60 weighs 4.2 pounds with measurements of 15.35 x 0.78 x 10.47 inches- so it is super slim and lightweight for such a powerful gaming monster. It comes with the full colour LED backlit SteelSeries Gaming Keyboard that enables very accurate typing with its tactile keys and great gaming experience. It has no optical drive but up to 3 times faster WLAN Killer N1525 Combo (2 x 2 ac)- 802.11 A/C wireless,Bluetooth 4.0, 3 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x Audio-out ports, 1x HDMI Port, 1x Mini DisplayPort, Killer Gaming Network 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet with RJ45 LAN Port, Killer DoubleShot combining Ethernet and WiFi adapters,1x Microphone-in and 1x Headphone-out.

Conclusion: MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K-046 is a very fast and powerful fantastic system with many attractive features and specs in a slim and lightweight package that looks amazing with a Macbook Retina like screen quality, amazing sound along with options to have a better multimedia and gaming experience, for video, sound and power management (choose between Green, Comfort and Sport for balance between temperature and performance), two fan thermal cooling to keep the machine at a steady cool temperature even when you’re playing the most demanding games for hours. You can also use it for your daily tasks at school or work and will handle anything you throw at it just fine- smoothly and without lags or freezing. The only con we can point out would be the trackpad, apparently it is not as impressive as the rest of this laptop and you can always connect a wireless mouse. If you care about design- looks, performance, user-friendliness, screen and sound quality, durability, portability, functionality, versatility, the MSI GS60 delivers it all and at quite a reasonable price for all it has on offer.
