Engadget Review

The GS60 Ghost is a slim and powerful option for gamers who want a lightweight rig. If you're going to spend that kind of money, though, wait for the unreleased GS60 Ghost Pro, which will bring a sharper display and better graphics.

Pros
  • Simple, elegant design
  • Powerful
  • Great trackpad for productivity
Cons
  • Disappointing audio
  • Average battery life
  • Trackpad is lousy for gaming
