MSI GT72 2QE Dominator Pro G Review
Never one to rest upon their laurels, the MSI Gaming laptop range is constantly evolving to ensure that the very latest hardware is in place at all times. Anyone who has experienced laptops knows that they go out of date faster than your smartphone of choice, so this determination to keep their high-end products at the leading edge of evolution is laudable.
The GT72 that we have on test today has been seen before sporting an Intel 4 series CPU. When a design is successful there is little reason to change everything solely to get a new motherboard/CPU combination in place, and sure enough the GT72 has an air of familiarity. Beneath that undeniably attractive skin beats the most premium of components imaginable. Rather than blather on let's get down to the details.
Our review sample came equipped with Windows 8.1 rather than Windows 10, which is great for our privacy but disappointing to not see the GT72 unleashed. The rest of the hardware specifications reads like a what's what of things you'd choose to put in a gaming laptop. Speedy 5 series Intel CPU, GTX980M, 16GB Corsair Dominator Pro RAM, AC WiFi and, perhaps best of all, G-SYNC display. We can't think of anything that the MSI is missing, and it certainly lives up to that Dragon Gaming billing.
