      Comments about MSI GX60 1AC-021US 15.6" Notebook Computer (Black):

      This is a great gaming laptop. It plays games at the same level as laptops that cost $1600+ but costs under $xxxx. Plays all games at a much higher graphic level than Playstation or Xbox. Diablo 3, Starcaft 2, Battlefield 3, Planetside 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive all play flawlessly.
