MSI GP62 2QD

 

Screen is very thin making the lid lightweight. Keys have a nice light press to them. Low fan noise is a benefit.

The font used for the keys, the size of the ac adapter and the size shape of the PSU plug. Picky I know but so far that is all.

MSI GP62 2QD

 

The design is quite sleek and relatively slim for a laptop with a DVD drive. It has to video out ports so that it can be connected to up to 2 external monitors. Is relatively responsive without any lag.

Battery life is quite poor, will die in around an hour and half of normal usage let alone gaming. The speakers are on the quiet side, still decent but could be much louder.

i can have my games on max settings so they run nicely

the battery life doesn't last long so you will always need the charger and the charger is quite big both in length and in width. can get quite warm and if you have the fans running they can be quite load and because of the heat its pushing out the room...
