I’ll be honest, I don’t believe in a mobile gaming laptop setup most of the time, but when you have the thought of carrying your oversized rig for a LAN party, the appeal of a gaming laptop quickly grows on you. The MSI GS60 Ghost pro caters with this sentiment in mind and how. The laptop weighs under 2kg and is one of the lightest in the 15.6 razred. Competitively priced, it also is loaded with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 800M series GPU that seems like a tempting offer to the average gamer on the go.
The GS60 Ghost is a much toned dolje but powerful alternative for gamers who want a setup that’s not back breaking, but for all purposes and if you want more bang with your buck, the Ghost Pro has alternative models and offers a 4K prikaz.
The GS60 is portable and that’s saying something. It’s less than 2 kilos and in a 20 mm frame but weirdly enough the top chasis doesn’t feel as premium. The body is a magnesium based alloy with a brushed metal surface. That being said, everything has been toned down and this in particular didn’t strike me in a good way since you won’t be able to enjoy the backlit keyboard if you’re into less than subtle light show. The innards have everything you’d want though. Three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and mini-DisplayPort outputs, a pair of audio jacks and an SD kartica slot, and Gigabit Ethernet connector which means you won’t be compromising on hardware on aesthetics.
Oddly enough, the biggest nitpicks I have about the frame is that it is susceptible to bending and if you don’t rukovati it right you could see the bottom extrude just beyond the audio jack inputs, at times I was careful at closing the screen since the frame around the screen started to protrude, ( I’m later told that this was because of the unit I had in particular) It’s a strong frame that stays but it does however take a fair bit of the screen giving it a smaller display to look at.
Make no mistake, the 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution stands out and the matte finish on the screen means that your games will look gorgeous and is one of the better screens for laptops in the lower price bracket.It isn’t without faults however as I did encounter glare issues but then again it’s very unlikely you’ll be gaming in a daytime scenario outdoors but if it’s a lan session with friends indoors, you’ll find little to greška and you won’t see too much of any distracting reflections you’d expect, it’s gorgeous.
Na odjelu zvučnika imamo Dynaudio zvučnike koji će i dalje odgovarati prosječnom igraču, osim ako naravno nemaju slušalice. Česti problem koji sam vidio kod prijenosnih računala za igranje je kako se bave basovima u zvučnicima, Asus uglavnom prodaje dodatak za subwoofer da bi se riješio ovog problema, ali nadao sam se da će MSI to riješiti s ovim modelom. Još se ne može nositi s bogatim basom i šteta je, ali bilo je problema s smanjenim dizajnom i to ću nešto učiniti kao kompromis.
The GS60 uređaj we reviewed had a GeForce GTX 870M graphics chip inside. Keep in mind there’s already a 4K version of this same laptop with better specs for a higher price. The 941 mhz core GPU clock can also be boosted after all you’re going to get a lot of juice from one of Nvidia’s best mobile chipsets. It will give you a great gaming experience with subtle changes if you know your way around, I’m not a fan on Windows 8 when it comes for gaming, the 8.1 update helps since it boots up in less than 8 seconds, not surprisingly after a heavy update from Microsoft the čizma takes a second or two longer as do all other functions, the windows update is notorious for slowing PC’s over time but this just goes to show how this affects mobile laptops.
The GPU seemed to have issues dealing with shadows slightly lower than expected than what you would see with a Gigabyte mobile unit. I ran Homeworld 2 perfectly on all setting high minus object shadow which it just wouldn’t run on high. You should be able to run current gen titles though as Nvidia recently sent out a patch to optimize mobile GPU’s. The Core i7-4700HQ is a 2.4GHz, Hyper-Threaded quad-core processor to me shined on it’s own when I threw in some video editing, rendering was a breeze with me editing a fully loaded 5 minute video in 1080p in less than 20 minutes on Premiere Pro. Blazingly fast on the voziti side as well with its 237GB boot drive that’s formed by combining two 128GB SSDs in RAID 0. However all of this does come with issues, the GS60 will start to heat uncomfortably after 30 minutes, even if you’re not throwing much at it like browsing. It got uncomfortable to a point I couldn’t use it on my lap anymore and this is probably with the way the heat dissipates from the device at the back.
Evo zašto se hvalim oko igara za prijenosna računala, 52Wh, baterija sa šest ćelija, ali neće biti prazna nakon dužeg igračkog sesije u roku od dva sata prije nego što pobjegnete na adapter. GPU čak pruža bolji način na temelju baterije ili da ne dobije dodatnu podršku. Zapravo nema puno toga za reći jer je to uobičajen problem s korištenjem mobilnih uređaja za napajanje kroz dan, a novi GPU pruža bolje performanse po snazi, bit će bolji, ali to nije slučaj s GS60 2PE.

With the success of the GT70, the MSI’s keyboard by SteelSeries is back again and it’s a joy to type on, not as much as a joy to look at. The backlighting is too dull and if you’re walking with a MSI, the first thing a gamer would do is flaunt the device and it will take a lot of punishment from intense gaming sessions. They even fit a number pad in there but it would have been better to maybe add gamer specific macros, the same kind you’d see in a razor blade. Another annoying thing was the positioning of the windows key on the right side which might mess up the flow for some people used to tapping on the windows key on the left and I kept hitting the funkcijska tipka as a habit. The steelseries keyboard is fully customizable with the keyboard program built in as expected giving you the ability to make it light up the way you want to.
The trackpad is bigger and has snap buttons on the bottom, but as a gamer you’re more likely to not use this at all and the pad mainly serves as navigational tool for the laptop. I’ll be honest, it can take some time to used to and it was onesposobljen during my gaming sessions. I found that it didn’t work well either outside of the gaming spectrum since the gestures would read wrong and if you were to use two fingers for the keypad and trackpad it would lead to poor results.
Srećom, MSI ne učitava vaš uređaj s puno protoka, on je dobrodošao, međutim ako odustanu od društvenih aplikacija koje jednostavno odu u preglednik i tamo otvore početnu stranicu.
GS60 je savršeno dobar prijenosno računalo za igre srednje klase. Međutim, poznata je činjenica da su namjenski igrači spremni izdvojiti više kako bi dobili više, zbog čega GS60 ima izdanje 3K i 4K, što košta prirodnije i bolje GPU, ali 4K rezolucije na 15 ″ imat će nekoliko pitanja u vezi s skaliranjem. Kao i sve stvari, prijenosna računala za igre pomalo su hit i za mene je sigurno da to čini solidan multimedijski uređaj s utrobom radi pokretanja softvera za uređivanje video ili fotografija. Što me na kraju navodi da je to prikladno za LAN zabavu ili mjesta na kojima ste spojeni na utičnicu i po mogućnosti negdje hladno zahvaljujući grijanju.
Ipak, riječ je o jednoj od najboljih linija prijenosnih računala koje je GeForce GTX 980m nedavno nedavno pobijedio. GS60 je tanak i lagan i košta nešto manje od ostalih natjecateljskih prijenosnih računala u svojoj klasi.
