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...

Stunning Laptop


Overall I think this is a very good laptop and would recommend.

This is a beautiful laptop. Great specs and performance. I have had no issues so far except for installing ClassicShell. It made Windows Explorer crash. I decided to use Start8 which works great. Other than that I have had no issues. The keyboard is...

The most unfortunate aspects of this laptop are Windows 8.1 and color accuracy. The Windows 8.1 issue can be resolved with Start8. I am not positive but I read that the sRGB color coverage is only 82%, and AdobeRGB is only 58%. While the laptop has a...

Meets my expectations


So far, so good. I've been looking for a notebook that can handle the games I want to play at a reasonable price. The GE was just the perfect balance between the two and it is light enough for me to take it everywhere I go without the backache. The...

So far none yet, but only time will tell if any issues arise

Outstanding laptop for my purposes


I literally spent months comparing, pricing, comparing some more, multiple laptops. This one I finally decided on because of the graphics, processing power and RAM. The price didn't hurt either. I purchased an SSD but have not installed it yet. I can't...

I purchased this machine mostly for my business. I am a graphic artists who shoots both DSLR digital and video. I run Lightroom 64 and Photoshop 64 on a daily basis for imaging and Premier/AVS for video. Very happy with encoding times and buffering. I...

MSI GE70 2OE-071US


Overall I would recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable and well rounded gaming laptop.

This computer is a beast, plain and simple ; Backlit keyboard, fan speed controller, huge 17.3" display, Windows 7, 12MB RAM, 1TB HD, GTX 675 has played everything I've thrown at it beyond my expectations ; I simply love this computer, I would not...

When playing games this thing runs hot, which is to be expected from a GE series. The fan speed boost really helps with heat and I wouldn't think about doing any lengthy gaming without a laptop cooling stand, not really a con but something to keep in mind

Consumer review by:



Nice looking laptop open or closed. Plays Civ 5 and WOT as good as my desktops. SSD (after purchase addition) requires mini version which is a bit more costly.

Fast, nice screen, like the backlight keyboard, manual fan control button (not sure if pro or con yet). Window 7, Plays WOT just fine

Pain to get the stickers off around the keyboard (small thing I know), does run warm playing games, you can feel the heat pumping out the side vent. That is where the manual fan control helps. One would think that would be automatic control relative to...
