MSI GS72 6QE

 

I needed a 17" display power laptop for mobile CAM software demos. This is fast, (Nvidia) graphics, a good combo of 256 SDD and 1TB HDD and RAM. Easy to setup, surprisingly little "bloatware" preinstalled (a blessed relief these days). So far it has...

Nothing really.

Boots up extremely fast thanks to the NVME drive. Not too heavy especially for a 17.3" laptop and easy to carry around. Laptop is ridiculously thin.

Battery life isn't great but can't expect more with this format factor. Does run hot after prolonged gaming.

Does everything it says on the tin, and certainly works well on the higher graphics specifications

Power point is on the right side of the machine, so a bit annoying being right handed. The fan is quite loud

It's a powerful laptop as per specs

The laptop is going back. There is what I consider to be a serious design flaw with the space button.

MSI GS72 6QE

 

Fantastic sleek design. Great keyboard and display. Plenty of hard disk space. Came with an very nice MSI laptop bag and case as part of the MSI spring deal. Boots into windows 10 in 6-8 seconds.

The screen is a little flimsy. Poor battery life even for a gaming laptop.
