MSI GE62 2QD Apache

 

The GE62 is MSI's relatively slim and lightweight 15.6in gaming laptop chassis that provides lots of performance without too much bulk. This 2QD Apache version is primarily defined by its choice of graphics card, with it using the mid-range Nvidia GTX...

Good overall performance ; Slimness and lightness is welcome ; Great keyboard action ; Good quality screen ; Design doesn't quite rival the best brands

CPU perhaps a little too powerful for the GPU choice ; Keyboard layout is not to our liking

MSI GE62 Apache Pro review

 

Slightly more than the sum of its parts

Extremely smooth gaming experience ; Loaded with name brand parts ; Four speaker positional sound

Loud fans ; Unimpressive battery life ; Hardware doesn’t stand out much

While this 15-inch gaming notebook offers excellent sound and features, its performance (and appearance) simply doesn’t stand out from the competition.

MSI GE62 Apache

 

The MSI GE62 Apache is a serious gaming laptop for less than $1,500, and it comes with some premium components that help boost its performance.

Affordable price. Solid performance, thanks to an Intel Core i7-4720HQ quad-core CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M GPU. Full set of I/O ports, including mini DisplayPort. Numeric keypad.

No touch screen. Short battery life. A boatload of bloatware.

Overall, the MSI GE62 Apache is a very good entry-level gaming laptop, with class-leading 3D performance numbers and gamer-friendly features, like the Steelseries keyboard with multi-colored backlighting. However, the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro remains our...

MSI GE62 Apache Review

 

Packed with a quad-core Intel CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M graphics, the MSI GE62 Apache is a well-rounded gaming laptop with solid performance and a wallet-friendly price. Read on to find out what we didn't like.

Good display color and viewing angles ; Solid performance while gaming ; Gamer-friendly keyboard and touchpad ; Relatively thin and light for a gaming notebook

Unimpressive battery life ; Average screen contrast ; Dedicated number pad keys too small ; Runs a bit too hot ; The MSI GE62 Apache offers excellent performance for a reasonable price but falls short on battery life.

MSI GE62 Apache Review and Ratings

 

The 15.6-inch MSI GE62 Apache might not match the performance of the highest-end gaming rigs from the likes of Alienware, Origin, and MSI itself. But at about half the price and half the weight, it's a tempting route to moderate gaming on the go.

Good gaming performance for the price ; Nice display with good viewing angles ; Plenty of ports

Disappointing battery life ; A bit of a letdown to see a hard drive instead of an SSD ; Mediocre Webcam

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Nice Machine!

 

The upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10 was super easy and completed with no problems at all.

Very nice machine! Runs like a champ with the Blizzard games I play, like WoW and Diablo3. I believe I am able to run at full graphics on both, if not it is pretty close. Farly light for travel

I have not found any yet

Great!

 

This is the second review I have ever written in my life. I usually am never excited about items I buy but if I had a choice to return this laptop and buy something else for the same $$$ I'd buy this 100 times more.

I love this laptop ; Customizable color keyboard is amazing ; Build quality is very good ; Screen is very good quality with very good viewing angles for a TN panel ; FAST. For this price range, this laptop is probably the best bargain. 965M GTX is...

Metal finish is a fingerprint magnet ; Taking it apart to add SSD and 8GB RAM was a pain. Have to pry the back cover off. Was a bit scary but all worked out in the end

SWEETTTTTTT

 

Overall a sweet laptop performs great i run BF4 on Ultra at 45-60 frames with AA off. cooling system can get loud but keeps it nice and cool.

No flaws yet, it runs like a charm! love the keyboard placement

the track pad is not that great. better off with a mouse (obviously) definitely should throw in a ssd to speed things up that's in my plans already

Great laptop

 

The area where the palm rests can be warm or hot, but that's to be expected on all laptops. I would recommend getting an external keyboard if you plan on using it for extended periods. The fan can be very loud but wearing a pair of headphones will...

Runs all my games on max ; Beautiful keyboard with custom colors ; Boot up is quick ; Comes with an amazing mouse pad and gaming mouse

Palm/Rest area can get warm ; Fan can get very loud during gaming
