MSI have been in the computer business for a long time. Regarded as one of the older, most respected motherboard and video card manufacturers they have only entered the gaming notebook market in earnest around early 2013. Prior to their current line up of gaming notebooks MSI relegated themselves to business class machines and desktops. Since their foray begun MSI have been determined to offer a quality gaming notebook, taking many pages from the already established ASUS playbook and improving on many points.
MSI gaming notebooks are available from base models with entry level gaming video cards all the way to expensive, high end beasts. Short of water cooling MSI manage to cram as much performance as possible into these gaming notebooks. MSI are typically at the forefront of new release video cards and intel processors - getting their latest offering to market as soon as possible, quite often ahead of ASUS or Alienware.
MSI Gaming Notebooks in Sydney
MSI gaming notebooks are priced to compete directly with ASUS - and for the initial year or two were priced cheaper than comparable ASUS machines. Now that MSI have entrenched themselves as a gaming notebook vendor their prices have slowly crept up to be at a similar level. Not the cheapest but also not the most expensive. Overall MSI offer good value for money.
Reviews of most MSI notebooks have been glowing, often highlighting MSIs understanding of how to take an existing product and improve on it. One issue that higher end ASUS notebooks tended to have problems was cooling, often overheating and requiring a cooling pad for extended play. MSI have also introduced the world's first mechanical keyboard in a notebook, quite the feat given how much travel distance the keys need. Beyond this teaming up with Steelseries for keyboard (even prior to mechanical) show that MSI understand their audience.
The MSI gaming notebook team are heavily involved in esports, sponsoring around 15 teams in popular titles. Counterstrike Global Offensive (CS:GO), League of Legends (LoL), Defence of the Ancients 2 (DOTA2) and Starcraft2 are headlining games. With the power of MSI at their fingertips these gamers have nothing standing in their way.
