Good gaming computer for the money

 

If you use a mouse and wear headphones when you game then this is a GREAT gaming laptop for the money. It is still a very good gaming laptop for the money even with it's warts. I can live with the touch pad. The speakers knock it from a 5 star to a 4...

Great screen Good Value - Specs/components for the money Good Keyboard Fast Nice Design No bloat-ware

MSI GE72 Apache

 

Have only had this laptop for a day, I will update this review if I find anything additional to write about.

Runs as expected. Fast Looks Great I like the keyboard and trackpad: The backlighting is fully functional. Not as much bloatware as I have seen before I like some of the pre-installed software Free game with the purchase

Some pop-ups on initial boot, but they are easy to dismiss and never see again. Not enough of an excuse to remove an egg.

disapointed

 

Nicely designed case, Light weight for its size

Even though it list a Nvidia GTX 960 graphics card I can only see the intel integrated HD 4600 graphics. The Nvidia control panel doesn't list any monitor available. The so called full color lighted keyboard is not so it's only white. Even though the...

All Around Good Laptop

 

I replaced the factory hard drive with an Samsung EVO 850. It made a huge improvement in performance. I suggest doing this if you buy this laptop.

The exterior looks and fees well manufactured. The finish on the aluminum is very nice. The 960M is plenty powerful enough to play most newer games on medium to high quality settings. The fans are quiet. Easily upgraded from Windows 8 to 10. No...

The keyboard is difficult to use if you type a lot. There is little space between the keys and it's easy to hit the wrong key. Notice how the cursor keys are right next to the shift, enter and num pad keys. Too close and I often press the cursor keys...

Love it and so will you if you read this.

 

So at the end. i hope you all read this and find no surprises if you decide to buy this. I am overall very very happy with my purchase. If there is anything i am mad about it might be after i bought this there was like 200 dollar free item thing that...

I am going to start this by being clear. If you bought this laptop without research then there might be a lot and a lot of things that you can talk bad about and probably give a bad rating. If you are one of those people who researched, you will know...

So even though i will list these Cons, i will not take a single point off because before i bought this i knew about all of this. Lets start with the fan noise. It is very loud specially since i use turbo when playing games and that is pretty loud. of...

-Backlit Keyboard looks great with the white lights against the black. -metal palm rest and metal surrounded keyboard -audio sounds great. -the msi shift feature is great using it on casual right now since i dont want a hto pc and im not doing anything...

Setup

 

I upgraded from the installed 8.1 to 10. Best advice is to make sure 8.1 is fully updated prior to updating to 10. Be advised that the O.S. upgrade process can still take an hour or so, and setting up accounts and adding to a home network or just...

I purchased this laptop for my son for Christmas. I really haven't ran it through it's paces; however, man that thing is fast.

No real cons yet. I did have a hard time putting the thing back in the box after I configured it for my sons use.

First gaming Laptop

 

It is my first gaming laptop, but I also got it because i do 3d modeling and since i been working a lot, I need a laptop that can handle some 3d modeling while I am away. I will be gaming on it, but for that i have a desktop pc. This is my first laptop...

Has a really nice designed, the laptop is big, but light weight. Price I got it for was 800 so for the specs it was well worth it. Its not loaded with bloatware... This is something i truly appreciate from MSI, My dad got an Acer notebook and it had so...

Two complains, number one is the screen, when I Open it it feels like it flexes a lot and sometimes makes a popping noise. I research it and many who have MSI notebooks have had the same complain about the screen being too flimsy... Second is heat,...
