The MSi GF75 Thin 95C lives up to its namesake. Upon unboxing the device, users will immediately be impressed by how sleek and thin the Notebook is. Coming in at just under 2.5cm high, the GF75 Thin 95C is thinner than most traditional gaming laptops out there. This thin chassis is a massive selling point for gamers that travel often, especially when you factor in its actual mass. At 2.134kg, the GF75 Thin 95C won’t break your back and the fact that it isn’t a slouch when it comes to performance, sweetens the deal even further.
Intel’s 9th generation i7 9750h is featured in the device and its raw processing power is a slight step up over the previous generation i7 8750h. MSi and Intel are touting a 10% performance increase over the previous generation i7 processor but real-world performance gains will vary depending on a number of factors. The 500GB NVME drive ensures a fast boot up sequence and coupled with 16gb of DDR4 RAM and an Nvidia GeForce® GTX 1650, the GF75 Thin 9SC is quite a well-rounded laptop.

Aesthetics and Design
The MSi GF75 Thin 9SC’s design is quite visually pleasing. MSi have opted for a more premium look with this laptop and the brushed aluminium finish on the laptop’s lid is a very welcome change over the more standard plastic we’ve seen with some of their other models. The laptop features a “drop down hinge” system which from a design perspective is quite remarkable for a number of reasons.
The hinge design effectively lifts the laptop up off the surface it is resting on. This allows for greater airflow around the vents and thus better thermal control from its cooling system. The fact that the air vents are located towards the back of the laptop and at the base of the screen where the GPU and CPU are located, means that when your hands are resting on the palm area of the laptop or on the keyboard, you won’t feel much of the heat it gives off.

In our final test, we booted up Metro Exodus and surprisingly, the game defaulted to High settings...
