Peripherals Plus Athlon 800

This card has a whopping 64MB of memory, which is useful for playing games at ultra-high resolutions; the machine's score of 2750 in 3DMark 2000 did seem a little low, though, when compared to systems sporting GeForce cards.

Other system components include 128MB of 133MHz SDRAM, an internal 56Kbps modem, and a 20GB drive that has a fast 7200rpm spin speed. The sound card is built into the motherboard, which itself is very expandable - containing no fewer than six PCI expansion slots. The computer's housing is an AOpen ATX case with three CD-ROM-sized bays as well as three hard drive-sized bays, and its power supply is a hefty 250W. A Samsung 17in monitor provides display output and Altec Lansing ACS-33 speakers supply the sound output.

A software bundle of Lotus SmartSuite and Norton AntiVirus is part of the package. For support, a three-year on-site insurance- underwritten warranty is provided.

Pros: DVD, CD-RW

Cons: Relatively low 3D Mark 2000

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
