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

Pentest and VMs


This is the first laptop I have bought to use for running multiple VMs and it excels at the task. There might be better laptops out there for this job, but getting it for sub $900 was a great deal.

Laptop was onsale and had a rebate when I bought it ; Works great for various labs and practice for infosec and pentesting ; Not that heavy or bulky of a laptop

MSI had a rebate that took about 4 months to get to me. I wasn't really sure if I was ever going to get one ; Standard amount of bloatware

Pretty Beastly


Even though i have these cons with it, i still give it a 5 egg rating.

Everything is pretty awesome, very strong computer ; Very good on the price for what specs are given

I only have a couple problems with it ; 1. It gets pretty hot on the left side, and when i play games, my hand tends to sweat and get uncomfortable. but its not all that bad. The extra fan that you can turn off and on, i dont feel like it helps and...

Hardware and Software problems


Looks pretty. Nice keyboard and backlighting. Runs somewhat cool. Quiet unless the high power fan in on

Hard drive was clicking. Sent computer back for several weeks and was repaired. The "new" HDD is still clicking. Additionally, less than a week into using the computer, I restarted it to update. When it came back on it said it was "unable to repair"...

Terrible experience


The laptop looks great, however

I just purchased this laptop and guess what: the gpu is faulty. I'm having HUGE difficulties to get my replacement since that the MSI support service is at least... well.. terrible. It took almost 1 week just to open the RMA service and they are not...

Very nice laptop


The page says this laptop has the i7 4700 at 2.4ghz. However, the one I received was the i7 4710HQ at 2.5ghz. So that was great. I used EVGA precision as utility to monitor temperatures and GPU usage, etc.. However, the program was consuming 50% CPU...

This laptop has the GTX 860M 2GB GDDR5 ; Very powerful and can run world of tanks at max, at 40-60fps. WoT is a very demanding game due to bad optimization but this laptop can run it fine ; The keyboard looks and awesome ; Build quality is decent, not...

Fingerprints can show up easily on the palm rests though you can easily wash it away ; The laptop does get warm, many people complain about this. However, it isn't really much of a problem. During World of Tanks, it reaches 80-89c with the turbo fan...

Decent for the price


Overall a decent machine but I would recommend getting the GT model or the ASUS G750.

Runs games with max settings quite well and has an awesome customizable keyboard. Very lightweight for a gaming machine

You have to void the warranty to open the back panel. There is only one internal SATA and the 2 mSATA are not positioned very well. It also vents the heat on the left side and if you use something like a logitech G13, it burns your hand. The heat...
