MSI GE Raider series
MSI’s Raider series combines blistering speed and raw power, with a head-turning modern design that demands attention, with the MSI GE66 Raider 11UH-601UK (₤2,699 ₤2,499) standing proudly at the top end. It’s ideal if you’re a hard-core gamer or enthusiast who only wants the most extreme performance allied to cool design.
Powered by an 11th Gen Intel i7 processor and 16GB RAM, with a whopping 1TB of storage to boot, its crown jewel is the insanely fast Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, which will comfortably handle the most demanding games on its 15.6in QHD 165Hz screen, even at high settings, providing a gaming experience never before seen in a portable machine. With MSI’s Cooler Boost 5 tech bringing larger fans and wider heat pipes to the table, you can also game with full speed ahead without worrying about overheating.
Raw power aside, it looks incredible too, thanks to a sleek titanium blue and RGB mystic light keyboard and light bar — both of which can be customised to nail your perfect look. With Duo Wave Speakers for the ultimate sound, along with all the connections you’d need, this truly is a beastly laptop that will blow your mind for years to come.
Other offerings in the Raider range include the QHD 240Hz GE66 Raider 11UG-096UK (₤1,899 ₤1,799) and Full HD 240Hz GE66 Raider 11UG-095UK (₤1,799, ₤1,499), both of which still provide an incredible gaming experience on their respective 15.6in screens, thanks to the same Intel i7 processor, and powerful Nvidia RTX 3070 graphics card.
If you’re after the same Raider package with an even bigger display, there’s also the GE76 Raider 11UG-267UK (₤1,999 ₤1,899) which has a larger 17.3in Full HD 240Hz screen, powered by the same 3070 graphics card and i7 processor. And yes — all models in the Raider series feature the same eye-catching design, cooling, and amazing RGB light customisation options.

The Katana series is perfect for gamers looking for raw power, enveloped in a sleek, minimal package featuring a sophisticated design to go alongside the supreme power.
The Katana GF66 11UG-087UK (₤1,399 ₤1,229) is at the high end of the spectrum, with a 15.6in Full HD 144Hz screen, powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia RTX 3070 graphics card, along with 512GB of SSD storage for speedy load times, and 16GB of RAM for optimum multitasking.
Its angular all-black body demands respect while looking perfectly at home in any environment, while the new ergonomically designed keyboard’s smart red backlighting is easy to use even in low light conditions. Throw in MSI’s superb Cooler Boost 5 system for keeping on top of thermals, and you’ve got yourself a laptop that can handle anything you care to throw at it.
There are currently eight models in the Katana GF66 range, each one specced to offer incredible bang for buck at whatever price point suits you.
