In today’s world laptops have become an essential part of our daily household. It doesn’t matter if you are at home, in college, at school, or at the office, you need a laptop for sure. Whether the task is completing school projects, writing a research paper at college, or to prepare a presentation at the office, a laptop can do it all for you. What makes it even more important in our life is its portability which makes it easier to carry around. If you are looking for a suitable one for yourself then buying an MSI laptop can be a good option. In today’s blog, we will provide you with an honest review of the MSI GP60 2pe leopard.
About this device, we can say that the brand MSI has once again come out with a general-purpose GP series unit that consists of powerful hardware available for a relatively cheap price. The device contains a mid-range graphic card from Nvidia along with a Core i5 Dual-Core CPU from Intel. Let’s talk about all its configuration in detail.
This device will seem almost similar to the 15-inch product of MSI known as MSI GP70 leopard. The reason behind this is the presence of Nvidia’s new 840M graphic card that is present in both the products along with the presence of Intel i5 4200h processor. With the GP60 product, the customers also get the option of the i7 quad-core CPU variant.
- Case-although the price of the product is not very low but yet MSI used a plastic case. Although the build quality can be considered appropriate the plastic is not very robust. The underside is very thin and when taken a closer look, the material on the upper side looks very cheap in appearance. The surface of the earth device is not reflective hence it is not prone to fingerprints due to greasy hands. The size of the device is rather bulky.
- Connectivity-WLAN 802.11ac and Bluetooth V4.0 standard double features that are present in this device. Customers will not face any connectivity issues up to two floors away from the router. The range is quite impressive and the wire connections are supported by a Killer Gigabit Ethernet port.
- Operating system– the market has been flooded with devices having Windows 10 in 8 this device comes with pre-installed Windows 8.1 If you are someone who prefers Windows 7 then you need not worry as you are not going to face any problems as the necessary drivers have been provided on the home page by the company itself.
- Maintenance-Towards the other side you will find a big maintenance hat that is able to cover almost a third of the device which makes it easy to replace the hard drive with an SSD. In addition to this, there is one of the two Ram slots that are still free which makes it possible to upgrade from the build of 8GB to 16GB.
- Warranty– company grants the manufacturer’s warranty which is valid for 2 years on all its notebooks per default. The customers also have the option to get it extended by a year through the MSI shop.
Now we will take a look at the input devices that come with the MSI GP60 2pe leopard.
- Touchpad– you will notice that the Touchpad in this device is too small which makes it almost necessary to use an external Mouse. If we ignore the size of the Touchpad then we can say that it is a precise Touchpad that supports multi-touch along with two separate Mouse buttons. The rough surface of the Touchpad makes it pleasant to touch and move fingers easier.
- Keyboard– if you are a fan of the keyboard light system then you are likely to get disappointed with the keyboard of this device. we have noticed that other devices that are available in the market that possess the same field of applications and in the same price range support a lighted keyboard but this device does not.
- Display– this MSI laptop comes with a Matte 15.6 inch full HD display which supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The display is sufficiently bright and supports pin-sharp imagery.
Overall we can say that every device that comes in the market possesses some pros and some cons and so is the case with this device as well. We try to provide an honest review of the MSI GP60 2pe leopard so that before buying you are aware of what can you expect out of the product.
