    It’s strange that recently two senior members of MSI Notebook UK team have jumped ship to ROG.

    How is the build quality between the GP and GE compare? And the cooling? I am debating between these two machines - the GP is lighter than the GE - so I am guessing more plastic?

    MSI GP Series GP63 Leopard-428
    MSI GE Series GE63 8RF-099CA

    I have never owned a MSI laptop - so this is new to me (currently own a 5 year old Lenovo gaming laptop getting long in the tooth :))

    GE is better than GP in terms of quality and performance, but GP is cheaper.

    Thanks for the response.

    Is the improvement in performance/quality worth an additional $400 for the GE?

    That will depend on what you are going to use the computer to do, and whether the different specs will matter to you.

    Regarding both models, their spec are very close.
    MSI GP Series GP63 Leopard-428 (Newegg-only SKU)
    MSI GE Series GE63 8RF-099CA (Amazon CA SKU)


    GE has 256GB SSD while GE has 128GB.
    Not sure if the shipping cost is the same if they ship it from the US to Canada, so you will have double check on that.

    I have not seen any reviews on the MSI GS73 Stealth-016 anybody own one??? what are the temps like when gaming? im interested in possibly purchasing do to its 5.35 weight. Is it max q or full 1070?? (some websites have it posted differently) Has anybody got a disassembly video? Anybody did a repaste with LM and fujilopy pads and did it make a difference with pads? (LM should make a major difference cpu wise)

    It should be the same 1070 with Max-Q design.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I will be using it primarily for gaming :) - I play all genres-both old and new.

    Both are sold and shipped by Newegg Canada, so shipping and taxes are the same.

    Some other differences: the GP has 2666 RAM but the GE has E2500 LAN and 4 speakers... The GE has the fancy lighting, including the lid, which I would turn off. I suspect that under the hood there are other differences as well.... hence the performance questions.

    Thanks for the help though.

    CPU/RAM/GPU are identical, so the only thing is that the 256GB SSD can be slightly faster than 128GB in some cases but most likely identical performance.
    If you want other fancy features, plus that extra 128GB, and slightly faster SSD then the cost will be worth it.
    One more thing to note is that the thermal capacity, GE may have more thermal capacity than GP which allows you to drive it harder so you get more out of GE than GP although their primary specs are similar.
