The MSI GF65 Thin is a sleek gaming laptop which offers a nice balance of specs and features for the price. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It has some stylish highlights, including a brush aluminum top, red accents, and an eye-pleasing screen. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
No RGB lighting here, but you do get some satisfying red backlighting and subtle accents on the keyboard. It's also comfortable to both game and work on. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Sadly there are no media playback buttons, but most controls are there despite the compact keyboard layout. The trackpad is fairly lackluster though. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Most of the ports are on the right-hand side. There aren't enough USB-A connections in our mind, though, and the placement will get in the way of your mouse. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The laptop gets quite hot when gaming on the lap but put it on a desk and it copes just fine - ujust a little noisily. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It features a 1080p 144Hz panel which means you can make the most of the FPS on offer from the RTX 3060. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Gaming is glorious on this screen too. It's vivid and vibrant and surprisingly good for the money. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
In the end, this is a great laptop with fantastic specs, features and capabilities and a reasonable price tag too. What more could you want? (image credit: Pocket-lint)
