The MSI GL63 features a 15.6-inch full HD resolution display. While many gamers are moving to QHD or even 4K gaming displays, this laptop's 1080p resolution enables some speedy specs: a 120 Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time.
The machine is powered by an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB NVMe SSD. If you are looking for a laptop that can keep up with heavy productivity from all that schoolwork, while also being able to maintain high framerates when you're gaming on the weekend (never during the week, right?), this gaming laptop could be a good fit for you.
