So what do you do if you are a gamer but don’t have the budget to spend the big money that is required for some of the high end gaming laptops that are currently available? If that fits you than you may want to take a look at the MSI GL62 6QC 484UK which is a gaming laptop that is a little more affordable but still has many of the features that gamers need and want to make their experience great. Below we are going to review some of the benefits and downsides to this model and see if it might be the right option for you.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 128 GB SSD plus 1 TB SATA
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– 2.3 KG may not sound overly light for a 15.6 inch laptop but for a gaming laptop it is. Most gaming laptops weigh quite a bit more than this so it actually lets you be much more mobile if you are somebody who is on the go often
– MSI has taken a step back when it comes to the processor to save on the cost of the device by going with the Intel Core i5 over the i7. This may seem like a bad thing but the i5 is still a very capable processor and can deliver some decent performance but is much more budget friendly
– You will find a hybrid hard drive setup on this laptop so you get both the performance benefits of an SSD and the large storage capacity of a SATA
– The GeForce 940MX is what MSI has went with for a graphics card and it fails to live up to the same performance as the higher end options. With only 2 GB of dedicated memory it is going to be able to handle most games but may struggle with more graphic demanding games
– 8 GB of memory is pretty basic when it comes to laptops and we would have liked to see 16 GB in this gaming device instead
The MSI GL62 6QC 484UK obviously has its drawbacks compared to more expensive options but it can still provide a good gaming experience for those who are on a budget but still want to play the latest games.
