  • Dave2D review of the MSI PS63. The best laptop from MSI for portable creative work, productivity and gaming while rocking a massive battery life.
    Available Here - amzn.to/2Rfksvt
    Equipped with a GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q and a i7-8656U and a claimed 16 HOUR battery life, the PS63 Prestige laptop from MSI brings some of the best performance to a thin and light 15" device. This device has much better performance over the 2019 Razer Blade Stealth.

    I think more companies should do this CPU/GPU combo. 13 hours of battery life is no joke. Thanks for watching!

      Try to bring the MSI Prestige lineup, 14 and 15 versions, with 10gen Intel CPU's.

      @jinwei ooi You also won't get that kind of battery life playing games on the MSI. 1050 ti is no joke when it comes to power consumption.

    Hi Dave, have you had a chance to see the updated 15in prestige? It has an Intel 10th gen cpu and 4k display. Just wondering what you thought of it.

      JL Arasula 22 days ago

      Go with the Helios 300 it’s cheaper and more powerful but if you don’t want to carry such huge and heavy laptop just go with the msi.

    • King Of the monsters
      King Of the monsters 25 days ago

      daddy jamal what does CS mean ?

      But back to the point if you don’t game and the only thing you need is CPU power and a thin form factor than buy the MSI but the acer kills it in gaming

  • Léonard Ehouabolet

    Which laptop with similar performances and prices is lighter tha the MSI PS63?

    I bought the 8RDS Model off amazon for $1070 and it was pretty worth. Build quality is amazing, especially the touchpad which feels really good. The brightness is also not SUPER bright, but people are over exaggerating how bad the problem actually is, its not that big of a deal. The real problem is the thermals. They are terrible. If u plan to game, buy a cooling pad because it really helps. Other than that fantastic laptop! I really recommend it, perfect balance if u are a student.

    Heard a lot of cons about the brightness issue of this laptop? Is the display of this laptop really very dim?

    Hi Dave! Can you upgrade the storage with another M.2 SATA card?

      @Rick Lee Thank you friend.

    • Rick Lee
      Rick Lee Month ago +1

      Umer Ilyas yes you can. It has another m.2 slot, but it’s SATA only, not NVMe/PCIe. The back is easy to take off and you have direct access to the 2 x m2 ports and RAM

    Most manufacturers these days trend to make laptops thin and light and do not focus on build quality. They trend to make laptips that could potentially last only for 1-2 years. The plastic hinge and bezel on this model is extremy weak and prone to failure. Also, the 2 air vents blows hot air on the LCD display similar to Zenbook and this could potentially reduce its overall lifespan under heavy load.

    Was looking at the Razer Blade 13, Lenovo Flex 15, Asus Vivobook, but when i came across this i instantly fell in love with it, im looking at one that is $749 and come with an MSI mouse, mousepad, and headphones. (model doesn't have the 1050Ti)

    Dave, I'm in the market for a new Everyday work / gaming laptop. I don't need anything crazy for editing, just basic spread sheets, emails and web surfing. My top picks are the MSI PS63, ROG Strix Scar / Hero III, Acer Predator Triton 500, MSI P65, MSI GS63. What would you say is the best option?

    Only problem is the average LTT viewer will see that CPU and think its an extreme bottleneck, thus shouldnt be used.

      @ankit nagdeve I don't know about Deep Learning and AI but I run MATLAB simulations on this thing. I would say average performance for a thin core i7-u laptop. ps. I need to use cooler boost fan mode when I run simulations to cool CPU down. (average of 67-68c on cooler boost & 72-73c on auto fans)

    This laptop needs an upgrade now that GTX 1650 is available. The only big NO from me is missing thunderbolt. If I can't connect an eGPU to it easily then I'd also need a desktop.

    With a discount, you can purchase the brand new i7 model around 1100 dollars with 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD. This price is pretty insane.

    Hey Dave. Please review the New Dell Inspiron 15 with gtx 1650. I think MSI might have a good competition on that cause it also has a good battery life and also not a tru gaming laptop.

    I like it but like you i think it should be cheaper £1100 to 1200 would be more accepting, its only a 1050ti and there after 1070 money.

    16x16x16, the answer is 4096. I don't understand why you've never said the number "4096" in this video.
