The MSI GE60 APACHE PRO-867 is the bestselling 2015 15.6-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its sturdy built, crisp display, powerful processor, decent mid-range graphics card and a programmable full-color backlit keyboard. While it maintains stable temperatures most of the time thanks to its cooler boost feature, CPU intensive games tend to heat the system quite fast and cause some noise – thankfully not all the time. All in all, if you want a reasonably powerful gaming and multimedia laptop that doesn’t cost thousands of dollars, the PRO-867 may be the mid-range gaming giant for you.

The MSI GE60-897 is one of the most affordable gaming laptops to feature the latest GTX 960M mobile graphics, which can max out framerates on most modern games comfortably at high settings. It features a bold design with a sleek aluminum body with red accents. With an Intel Core i7-4720HQ, 1TB HDD and 8GB to boot, it is as powerful as the competing ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 and the LENOVO Y50-70 59440654.

However, the GL551JW offers additional performance in that it comes with 16GB of RAM and costs only $59 more. The extra RAM will be useful for intensive multi-tasking but for mid-range gaming and for running large applications, the included 8GB RAM is still more than enough for busting out with framerates blazing. Its Full-HD anti-glare display comes with good viewing angles and natural colors and is as good as any at this price range.

Featuring a complete set of ports, a DVD burner and Dynaudio premium speakers, the GE60-897 is also an excellent multimedia machine. It also features the famous SteelSeries keyboard with customizable color lighting and tactile feedback that is designed for an optimal gaming experience and giving gamers the edge when it comes to competitive gaming. At this price, despite several alternatives, you won’t go wrong with the GE60-897 considering its large feature set and top tier performance.
