Portable, powerful and quiet, MSI’s PS63 Modern is made for business elites and content creators

Portable, powerful and quiet, MSI’s PS63 Modern is made for business elites and content creators

Following 2018’s successful GS65 Stealth Thin 8RF notebook for gamers who want a thin, lightweight, discreet looking system, MSI also launched the P65 Creator, which has exactly the same high-end specs as the GS65 Stealth Thin 8RF, but now with a white chassis that does look good.

However, most content creators don’t quite require such a powerful GPU and if that can be parred down, perhaps a more targeted notebook with a lighter price point is more suitable. Enter the new PS63 Modern unveiled at CES 2019, it aims to fulfill a notebook that will be on the wanted list by business elites and content creators alike.

First and foremost, it’s a no-nonsense slim and elegant 15.6-inch carbon gray notebook with blue diamond cut at its edges and fitted with an IPS display with thin bezels. Weighing in at just 1.65kg and 15.9mm thin, it packs a GeForce GTX 1050 GPU and an 8th Gen. Core i7 processor, which is quite a potent combination of performance and portability. To content with overheating concerns, MSI’s exclusive Cooler Boost 3 cooling technology is said to be effective enough to keep it operating at optimal temperatures and performance. Also new to the 2019 notebook models is an extra-large and responsive touchpad, embedded with a fingerprint sensor for biometric security.

To keep up with the demands of modern day usage needs, its specced with 16-hour battery life, while its USB port is Qualcomm Quick Charge 3 certified to help you juice up your mobile phone quickly. For ease of packing, the notebook comes with a slim power adaptor, thus taking up a fraction of the space and weight of power adapters typical of its performance class. Finally, the notebook is even Quiet Mark certified to ensure prospective users can have a silent working environment and not be bothered by fan throttling noises that we’ve encountered in several notebooks we’ve tested in the past.

The new PS63 Modern seems to embody the concept of professionalism with a creative spirit and to that extent, it has collaborated with Discovery Channel to celebrate the half-century mark since man first landed on the moon. In honor of the milestone and the partnership between MSI and Discovery Channel, consumers will receive commemorative gifts with each purchase of the PS63 Modern.

We’ll circle back here again once we have pricing and availability details.
