You can search for smoother and more enthusiastic gaming laptops of 15.6-inch, but good luck locating a faster one [at least for now] than that of the MSI’s Vector GP66.
It’s constrained to be coated before long, however at this writing the fastest gaming laptop in our benchmark database—capturing the highest PCMark 10 productivity score and frame rate in two of our three real-world game tests—is not an Alienware or Razer, and does not price at $3,000 or more. It is the MSI Vector GP66, a rig of 15.6-inch that is $2,399.99 at Best Buy. The Vector is having a blink-and-it’s-over battery life and is a little rough surrounding the corners—it does not have details like an Nvidia G-Sync screen and the Thunderbolt port—therefore it drops short of Editors’ Choice honors. But if you dream of ultra-high performance for medium-high money, it is an enticing scream machine.

Its color is not red or black like some notebooks for gaming—its color is monochromatic black magnesium alloy—however, the Vector GP66 seems the segment, with swelling beveled hinges and many the vents for cooling. Decorated with MSI’s dragon logo, the system sense solid, with no flex if you are about to pick the edges of the screen.
