MSI continues to try to keep its dominance in the gaming laptop market with its new release of the MSI GV72 7RD-833UK. This isn’t designed to be a mobile friendly laptop but instead a powerful gaming device that features a large HD 17.3 inch display. While this laptop is more affordable than other options that MSI provides it still delivers plenty of the features that gamers want and below we will go over some of the benefits and downsides of this particular model.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA
Screen: 17.3 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– The large FHD 17.3 inch display is great for gaming or even just working on projects where having plenty of viewing area is a plus
– With the Intel Core i7 processor under the hood you can rest assured you will have plenty of processing power to run demanding games and applications
– It includes a large 1 TB SATA drive so storage space will not be a concern
– 3 USB 3.0 ports can be found on this laptop so you have plenty of room for your high speed external devices
– Gaming laptops are usually really poor when it comes to battery life but this model surprises with up to 10 hours possible on a single charge
– Due to the large 17.3 inch design this laptop is on the heavy side with a total weight of 2.7 KG
– More memory would have been beneficial, by providing just 8 GB it is on par with what standard laptops are including
– Another area that will impact performance is the lack of an SSD drive, While this could be upgraded at your own expensive it would have been much better to include it on the original design
The MSI GV72 7RD-833UK lacks the same type of performance you will find on higher end plus more expensive gaming options but still delivers a nice experience at a price that is much more affordable.
