MSI GE62 7RE Camo Squad Review


Laptops have a tendency of being a little bit samey. It's very difficult - without an in-depth knowledge of hardware - to spot the differences between many models, particularly when they all use very similar chassis for their range.

MSI are more guilty than most when it comes to this, with an endless array of models. Yes it might be easy to understand that the GT83 7RF Titan SLI will bring you outstanding performance, but what exactly is the difference between the GE62VR 7RF, GE72VR 7RF, GE72VR 6RF, GE72VR 7RF and GE62VR 6RF, all of which are equipped with the GTX 1060? And that's just a single GPU. It's almost a bewildering selection. If you didn't know, the GE, GS, and GT part are gradual steps up the range, the 62s have 15.6" displays whilst the 72s have 17.3" displays, and the 6 or 7RF part refers to whether it's a 6th or 7th Generation Intel CPU. So a GE62 7RE would be a low to mid-range 15.6" 7th Generation CPU.

Oh, that's handy, that's the model we have on test today.

However, unlike the above examples this is a Camo Squad edition, which guarantees that you wont get it confused with any other model in the MSI range. Complete with a desert MARPAT style camouflage and a selection of accessories as well as a full copy of Ghost Recon Wildlands, all for a very affordable price it could be just the thing to scratch your portable gaming itch.

Hmmmm... 12 year old me would love it. Now if it was urban or winter I'd still love it now. Just wouldn't be seen in public with it.

At least they're up for making stuff like that. How many iClones and none more black laptops can there be? It's like the days of the beige boxes all over again so it's good to see a point of difference. Even if it's not to many peoples tastes.Quote

Had a quick read of the conclusion and LOLed. Mostly because my first thought was "Man, if you rocked up at Costa Coffee with one of these people would think you were a terrorist" and then I see you mention a certain terrorist group in the comments.

Will read it more in depth later when I get home.Quote
