[Taipei, Taiwan] In March, the time has come once again for Laptop Magazine, renowned media for mobile technology, to release its annual Best & Worst Laptop Brands report. MSI, unranked in the last few reports, has broken into the 2015 top list in an outstanding 4th place as well as the top spot among Asian brands. Laptop Magazine's report stated, "From design to performance, MSI's gaming notebook innovations consistently impress us", also "If you're looking for a laptop powerhouse, MSI is a great brand to choose from."


"The MSI Titan, for example, is one of the best gaming laptops yet because of its mechanical keyboard and upgradability, and the Ghost is a sleek powerhouse. MSI laptops offer some of the best displays in the business. The company also delivers top audio quality, and scored very well in our reviews category. If you’re into gaming, this is one brand to watch." – Laptop Magazine, USA



Stunning Performance in Six Categories
Laptop Magazine's annual Best & Worst Laptop Brands report recognizes the best laptop innovators and takes a look at the products driving the IT industry. MSI, the leading gaming brand, is featured in the ratings in 2015 and has made it into the top 4 with high scores in Reviews, Innovation, Design, Keyboard/Touchpad, Display and Audio.

Reviews (15/20)
The Reviews category saw MSI score 15/20 thanks to strong reviews of models such as the GT80 Titan SLI, GT72 Dominator Pro, GS70 Stealth Pro and GS60 Ghost.

Innovation (4/5)
MSI scored 4/5 for Innovation. Best-in-class displays, sleek and slim design, unique upgradability, desktop-grade performance, pioneering mechanical keyboard design and loads of MSI-exclusive performance-enhancing solutions make MSI a clear leader in laptop innovation.

Design (12/15)
MSI scored 12/15 for Design. The slim design of the GS60 Ghost and GS70 Stealth Pro as well as the groundbreaking design of the GT80 Titan to incorporate a mechanical keyboard are the major score makers.

Keyboard & Touchpad (12/15)
In the Keyboard/Touchpad category, MSI scored 12/15. ”Because it focuses on gaming laptops, MSI equips its systems with SteelSeries keyboards that usually offer a lot of travel, good tactile feedback and customizable backlighting. The laptops have large touchpads with dedicated buttons for accurate gaming and navigation. In 2015, the company continues to push the envelope, releasing the GT80 Titan, the first laptop with a real mechanical keyboard," stated Laptop Magazine.

Display (9/10)
The Display category saw MSI score 9/10 with comments from Laptop Magazine that went as follows, "At 272 nits brightness and a color gamut of 94 percent, which is well in excess of industry averages, MSI has the best displays in the business. But this isn't a huge surprise, given that the brand focuses on gaming. MSI’s machines possess at least 1080p screens, although some, like the GS60, go up to 3K resolution."

Audio (4/5)
MSI scored 4/5 for Audio with its Dynaudio-outfitted laptops producing smooth audio quality overall. The Audio Boost technology, 7.1 channel output and Nahimic audio software are also MSI's audio highlights.

MSI has always strived for innovation, design and efficiency, providing the best experience through quality and performance. Eric Kuo, MSI Notebook vice president for global sales & marketing, gladly responded to the honor, "MSI is honored to have received such high praises and positive reviews. We would not have been able to achieve these accomplishments without the support and feedback of our fans, customers and community. We will continue our pursuit to provide the best in gaming."

GT80 Titan SLI


"MSI's most exciting new creation is the GT80 Titan SLI, which is one of the first gaming laptops to sport a mechanical keyboard. Aside from offering the key precision gamers crave, the GT80 packs a unique, right-facing touchpad that doubles as a numpad, as well as a pop-open deck that lets you swap out components." – Laptop Magazine, USA

GS70 Stealth Pro



GS60 Ghost


"On one hand, you have the waifish GS60 Ghost and GS70 Stealth Pro, which are some of the slimmest gaming notebooks that gamers could hope to stash in their messenger bags." – Laptop Magazine, USA

GT72 Dominator Pro



GS60 Ghost Pro 4K



"From design to performance, MSI's gaming notebook innovations consistently impress us. The company’s GS60 Ghost Pro 4K packs a rich 4K display within a sleek and slim design, while the GT72 Dominator Pro crams a whopping four SSDs into its portable frame to offer desktoplike performance." – Laptop Magazine, USA
