50 Limited Edition JB Hi Fi MSI Dragonshield Gaming Machines To Be Discounted On Black Friday
50 JB Hi-Fi customers will be offered a seriously good deal on Black Friday with the MSI GE66 Raider Dragonshield Special Edition gaming machine set to be offered for $4,000 instead of the recommended price of $4699.
This gaming machine which SmartHouse is currently reviewing was designed by veteran artist Colie Wertz, who worked on the upcoming Dune, The Mandalorian, and is currently in Sydney working on the latest Star Wars movie.
As gaming machines go this is a beast no more so than when you first open the box and you get a real feel for the build quality and the head-turning design built into this notebook with the flashes of Dragonshield design cutting across the keypad.
There is a 4GHz Intel Core i9-10980HK processor that can deliver up to 5.3GHz, eight cores from the top end Intel gaming processor.
Also built in is a 300Hz display screen, an array of port selections, under the bonnet MSI who are well known for their engineering skills have delivere3d some of the best gaming performance you can get from a 15-inch gaming notebook.
From the box it comes into the machine itself the designer has delivered a unique Dragonshield feel with both the lid and the keyboard wrapped around a vibrant orange and black, emblazoned with a sci-fi rendering of MSI’s logo.
If you look closely at this MSI GE66 Raider Dragonshield Special Edition notebook you will immediately realise that a great deal of work has gone into the design with numerous geometric shapes as well as detailed nuts and bolts that make up a spaceship’s panel detailed into new MSI offering.
Around the back edge is customizable lighting, there is also an RGB keyboard
Under the bonnet is 32GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and a 15.6-inch 300Hz 1080p screen.
The i9 and 32GB of RAM are more than sufficient for running numerous apps and the streaming of onscreen video without any slowdowns or build-up of heat.
The system’s dual fans (53 0.25mm blades) are designed to cool the CPU especially when engaged in intense gaming.
The Raider contains a 99.9Wh battery, the biggest in a gaming notebook with an i9 processor, MSI is claiming between 4 and 5 hours of gaming from this battery before it needs a top up.
You might get more juice if you turn off the RGB keyboard and LED bar at the rear.
If you want a seriously cool looking notebook, I see no reason not to splurge on the MSI GE66 Raider.
