MSI officially launches the GS65, GF63, and PS42 in the Philippines




MSI just officially launched a trio of their thin and light gaming and professional laptops during SM’s Cybermonth event. The brand is bringing in their GS65GF63, and PS42 laptops to the Philippines.

The GS65 is actually part of their Stealth line of thin and light gaming laptops. It is the successor to the GS63 and GS73. MSI took a different route in designing the GS65 as they made it look more professional than gamey. The laptop is encased in a gold and black color scheme chassis that gives off an elegant vibe.

It’s still as thin and light as its cousins in the Stealth line and sports top-of-the-line specs. The laptop is powered by a 15.6-inch FHD IPS-Level 144Hz display, Intel’s 8th generation Core i7-8750H processor, Nvidia’s GTX 1070 Max-Q or 1060 GPU, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 512GB or 256GB NVMe SSD, and Windows 10.


Next up, the more mainstream GF63. The laptop isn’t necessarily a thin and light but it isn’t a hulking beast either. It has a good balance between weight and thinness and is actually equipped with a fairly thin-bezel display, well on the sides that is. Thanks to that, it feels and looks thinner than it actually is.

This time around MSI stuck to the good ol’ red and black color scheme. Although, it still looks as discreet as the GS65 thanks to the smooth hair-brushed aluminum chassis and low-key lid design. The GF63 is powered by a 15.6-inch FHD IPS-Level TN display, Intel’s 8th generation Core i7-8750H processor, Nvidia’s 1050Ti GPU, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, 128GB of M.2 SATA SSD paired with a 1TB HDD, and Windows 10.

Lastly, the more professional oriented PS42. The laptop is covered in an elegant all-white aluminum thin and light frame. It may not be a gaming laptop but it still has pretty capable internals. The laptop is powered by a 14-inch FHD IPS display, up to Intel’s 8th generation Core i7 U processor, up to Nvidia’s MX150 GPU, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and either a 512GB or 256GB NVMe SSD.
