Solid performance, Plentiful storage, Features USB-C with Thunderbolt 3Latest games will challenge high-end graphics capabilities, Unsatisfying keyboard
The MSI GS40 6QE Phantom ($1,599.99) is a 14-inch midrange gaming laptop with the power to run games smoothly at, or near, the highest settings. You won't get performance at 60 frames per second (fps) the way you will with the $2,100 MSI GT72 Dominator Pr...

Reasonable priceCentre plate needs more support; too much pressure makes it bend around the keyboard/trackpad area, Would be better with an RGB keyboard; EVERYTHING is better with RGB!
The concept of the laptop or notebook as companies call them more often than not might have remained the same, but the game has certainly been completely changed. One such pioneer of the new breed of “gaming” notebooks is MSI and today they have sent us o...

The MSI GS60 6QE (Ghost Pro 4K) served me well during my trip to BlizzCon last year. I really liked the device (you can read my review of it right here ), though I did find the battery life to be poor, and lack of USB ports nothing short of irritating.Wit...

W hen it comes to gaming laptops, one company in particular seems to have the market stitched up. MSI has easily the widest range of gaming laptops in Australia, which is probably also why they tend to offer the best value. The new GS40 is a 14 incher tha...

Slim and lightweight, Good performance, Decent thermal management, Display still clear in bright areas, Well-placed portsSpeakers produced teeny sounds, Keyboard can be too bouncy, Bouncing lid,
The MSI GS40 Phantom. Small in stature, but big in specs. However, does it live up to its offerings? If you look at all the gaming notebooks in the market, you can hardly find one that is smaller than a 15-inch, which can offer the same performance specs...

Great performance from the Skylake CPU and GTX 970M. Better than expected brushed metal build. Thunderbolt 3, Killer networking, and a SteelSeries keyboard are decent inclusions.Another bad ELAN trackpad. More expensive than Gigabyte's competing laptop. Not the greatest of cooling solutions.
I wasn't particularly impressed by the last 14-inch gaming laptop I reviewed. The performance from the Gigabyte P34W v5 was decent, but it was let down by a collection of issues, including a bland design, poor thermal performance, and a subpar keyboard an...

Crazy fast for a 14", 3.75 lb. laptop, can game with the big boys. Nice matte IPS display, very good internals and specs. MSI includes 2 year warranty in the US rather than the industry standard 1 yearBattery life not great, fans are loud, bottom gets toasty
Would I like to own the MSI GS40 Phantom? Yes, indeed! It's extremely portable at 3.5 lbs, in fact it's lighter than the Dell XPS 15 and it has a faster graphics card too, which means high to ultra settings on today's AAA titles. It's a nice looking, tho...

Well, the MSI GS40 body feels all-plastic. I don't know if that's true, but it certainly looks and feels as such. It's not bad by itself. Most of the chassis will bend a bit under high pressure – nothing too bad, but the parts ‘above' the keyboard and aro...
