MSI is breaking into the mainstream market with its PS63 Modern creator-focused laptop at CES 2019. Impressive performance and design earned this computer our award for Best Mobile Workstation of CES 2019.
The PS63 is a 15.6-inch laptop that’s just 0.6 inches thick and 3.6 pounds. That’s pretty portable for a 15-inch laptop. While it’s small, the PS63 doesn’t seem to be lacking in the efficiency department.
Going inside of the PS63, it’s powered by the current Intel Core i7 processor and a GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q. It also offers up to 32 GB DDR4-300 RAM and up to two M.2 SSDs.
The laptop’s screen is a 15.6-inches 1080p display. The screen should be able to accurately reproduce color for most video work. MSI claims it will cover almost 100% sRGB.
The laptop comes with a touchpad that said to be faster and more responsive, according to MSI. Here are some numbers for how much fasters and responsive it is: MSI claims the touchpad is 30 percent more responsive and 35 percent larger. Plus, it supports more than 10 gestures optimized with Windows 10.
For cooling, the PS63 features Cooler Boost 3 dual-fan cooling. There is support for both HDMI and microSD, in addition to USB-C and USB-A. However, there is no support for Thunderbolt 3.

The PS63 will be out this February. Prices will start at $1,299.
