    "This laptop does it all. It allows you to play everything that you want to at high settings and it runs it smoothly. This laptop has Thunderbolt three along with many other great features."


Previously called Light Peak, the Thunderbolt is a connection technology primarily co-developed by Intel and Apple. It is based on the PCI express and DisplayPort architectures that have been fully utilized by Apple computers ever since. Apple then made it a flagship feature of the newest MacBook releases starting 2011.


Did you know that Thunderbolt can transfer a 300-hour worth of video in less than 20 seconds? Yes, you read that right. The first generation of this powerful Thunderbolt technology has paved the way for ultra-fast data transmissions at a rate of 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps). To put it simply, imagine transferring a full-length 4K movie in under 30 seconds--that's how insanely fast it is! Yet, it hasn't been a smooth-sailing journey for the Thunderbolt to reach the dock, so to speak. The new peripheral-connection technology has drawn flaks due to its exclusive nature. When it was first released, it was exclusive for Apple laptops, as well as for a few Google Chromebook Pixel only. Just a few years after the emergence of the USB Type-C (also called as USB 3.1), the Thunderbolt 3 came into existence. Thanks to its versatile nature, it is now possible to use Type-C cables to connect to Thunderbolt 3 ports. Now, there are even gaming laptops with Thunderbolt 3. As experts would say, the Thunderbolt 3 is a game changer not just in the world of data transmission and connectivity but also in the realm of display. It has extremely increased the transfer speed from a rate of 10 Gbps to 40 Gbps. For the gamers, this means they can now plug and play external graphics to their gaming laptops and play graphics-intensive games at higher settings.

    "An excellent laptop, but very pricey. It's got all the features I could ask for and will last for several years without needing an upgrade. Again, it's expensive, but I plan on getting at least 8 years out of it by running both Windows and then installing Linux once Windows advances to the point it will no longer run efficiently on it."

    "Heavy but powerful. And it runs kind of hot honestly. After an hour or so, it's not completely comfortable to have it in your lap while gaming. But the laptop has handled everything I've thrown at it, and looked great doing it. Sounds nice, the backlit keys make typing at night fun and easy, and it's everything a gamer on the go wants. Battery life isn't great though; you'll need to stick near an outlet."

The problem was my old laptop couldn't handle the graphics of a newer game. I had to upgrade. I found the MSI GS63 Stealth-060 online, and I bought it after doing my research. I was not disappointed. It does have Thunderbolt 3, and I love the performance of the machine, as well as the rainbow colored keyboard that lights up."
