Review MSI GE70-i765M287 Notebook


Gaming package. A matte 17.3-inch Full HD display, an Intel Core

Matte and bright display; Full HD with high contrast ratio; Backlit keyboard; Good gaming performance

No SSD (HDD slows down the system); Very high temperatures; Keyboard layout

The strange keyboard layout that takes time getting used to.

Review MSI GE70-i547W7H Notebook


Lean GT gamer. The GE range aims at tighter budgets and bids midr

Stable load performance; Good gaming performance; High contrast FHD; Matte TFT screen; Four speakers; Easy access hardware (upgrade, cleaning)

Clattery keyboard; Yielding chassis; No eSATA; Stiff touchpad keys; High weight

MSI blunders with the keyboard. It might feature a useful layout and accurate keys for gamers (conic cavity), but that does not justify the wobbly stroke caused by an unstable plate. The adjective “wobbly” can also be used for the case. The plastic...

MSI GE70 2PE Apache Pro review


An extremely powerful gaming laptop in a stylish chassis

The MSI GE70 2PE Apache Pro certainly isn’t cheap, but it’s immensely powerful. The GE70 may not be substantially more powerful than other gaming laptops with GTX 7-series graphics chips, but if you want a laptop that can play graphically challenging...

MSI GE70 2PE Apache Pro


MSI's bombastically titled GE70 2PE Apache Pro serves up serious gaming power in a hefty 17.3in chassis. With a quad-core Core i7 processor taking the reins alongside one of Nvidia's latest GTX 800 Series GPUs and twin SSDs in RAID, the Apache Pro...

A power-packed 17.3in gaming laptop and capable desktop replacement, the Apache Pro provides plenty of bang for your buck

Consumer review by:

great price and quality


steelseries keyboard. i7 is always a plus. gtx765 handles all current games flawlessly. I play wow d3 wildstar archeage all on highest settings with no problems

MSI and windows 8 don't seem to like each other. to avoid slowwwwww reboot times uninstall unneeded language packs and run command SFC /scannow to fix errors. after that run windows update and upgrade to 8.1...or go back to w7

Good Money vs Value


With a good cooling pad, and a mouse, this laptop is a great deal. (you can spend twice as much for what really amounts to a small increase in power) A tip; you can always upgrade to a SSD or up the ram in the future if need be. Chances are the price...

For your money to power factor, this laptop is great. For gaming there really very little difference for i5 to i7 right now, and I don't see it being required anytime soon. The 8gb is more than enough for now. The 860M is a good video card. Very light....

HEAT! I have had many gaming laptops, and I know that heat is a common issue, but this is is crazy. The turbo fan has to be on for anything other than simple usage. Even when on, high end games turn this thing to an oven. Cooling pad is required, else...

A Few Things


Overall happy with this machine but had some annoying issues out of the box. First, you'll want to go into the hardware settings for the wi-fi adapter and make sure it isn't set to "sleep" This will solve the machine dropping the Internet frequently.....

Fast ; Great Graphics Performance - WOW 860M is beast ; Supports mSATA drives ; Love the keyboard ; Turbo fan switch is awesome

Interesting configuration choices ; Software/Windows needs tweaks out of the box ; Can get warm with a full gaming load ; Touchpad sticks but who games with a touchpad

MSI GE70 Apache Pro-061


again for the money it is a great gamine machine.

for the price this is an excellent gaming machine. some FPS drop but nothing to cry about

HOT! The space between the spacebar and the touchpad can get untouchable. I run my machine on a laptop tray with fans ; Windows 8

Great No Frills PSU


This review is based on a MSI G Series GE70 2OE-017US 17.3-Inch Laptop. After less than two months of daily use, this machine managed to corrupt the OS (Win 8.1) so badly that it could not longer boot up. Tech support had no solution other than to wipe...

Blu-ray drive, general feature set

Lack of reliability and poor customer support
