MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438

 

The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438 gaming laptop improves 3D-animation speed and quality with the combo of a fifth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics with G-Sync. With smooth 3D rendering, it eliminates the glitchy...

Latest Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics. Lots of connection options, including USB 3.1 ports. Room for upgrades. Flat touchpad helps with Windows 8.1 gestures. G-Sync displays smooth 3D graphics

Big and bulky. No touch screen. Rivals have higher resolution displays. 128GB SSD is a little tight for a gaming PC. Many preloaded apps

Some gaming laptops aim for hitting the highest frame rate, but animation and rendering quality are just as important. The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G-1438 ($2,199.99 as tested) cannot only play high-end games smoothly at full 1080p HD resolution, it adds...

MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G

 

The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro G is that cutting edge gaming laptop with a drool-worthy list of up to the minute components and features that you'd expect from a boutique brand. There's no last gen CPU here; you get the Intel 5th generation Broadwell CPU...

Cutting edge specs like Intel Broadwell, NVIDIA G-sync, USB 3.1 and Windows 10 pre-installed. Sleek and understated for a gaming laptop

Nature of the big beast-- it's heavy and large compared to standard laptops. Trackpad could be better

MSI might not have the brand cache of Alienware or even Asus Republic of Gamers here in the US, but they make a mighty fine collection of gaming laptops and desktops. If you're in the market for a desktop replacement laptop that can do it all, or a...

MSI GT72 2QE Dominator Pro G (1461UK) G-Sync Gaming Laptop Review

 

Retrofitted with a new CPU based on Intel's latest-and-greatest Broadwell micro-architecture, MSI's GT72 2QE Dominator Pro G also ships with an additional gaming-centric gem – the use of a 1920×1080 G-Sync panel that runs at 75Hz.

Excellent cooling system with positive acoustic emissions ; G-Sync and 75Hz panel make for enjoyable gaming ; Fast CPU and GPU hardware ; Very good 1920×1080 PLS screen ; Extensive upgrade options – room for up to four M.2 SSDs, MXM GPU, free DIMM...

Build quality needs to be better for a £2000 machine ; Switching between the Intel and Nvidia GPU via a button and reboot is inconvenient ; Trackpad integrated into the chassis can be annoying to use ; Very large and heavy

A well-designed, feature-laden laptop that uses smartly-picked hardware to drive games on the 75Hz Full HD G-Sync panel.

Do not buy until Windows 10 gets fixed

 

When this thing works how it is supposed to it is incredibly fast. wonderful processor and gpu kill it in games. runs GTA V on amazing setting (high/very high) at smooth frame rates. The v sync display also is really nice, people say it doesnt do...

Faulty hardware/firmware? I am following up as I've also encountered the same issue that Boyan T. has encountered. The Intel Management Engine Interface is the culprit behind the Windows 10 issues with this laptop ; Under a Linux live USB environment,...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

a decent machine

 

Overall worth it, except for the support problems.

Awesome thermal performance: dedicated button to speed up fans (in hardware, OS independent) which allows keeping the system at 70C (27C ambient) under full load. At the same time, the only part outside that is somewhat heated is the top near the...

Two stars off for MSI support. The story: The machine performed like a champ until Windows 10 updated drivers, which rendered the machine unbootable (under Windows 10, Linux ran fine). The MSI recovery procedure completed successfully but the Windows...

Great Looking Laptop

 

Don't get me wrong, looking at this laptop is a thing of beauty. I just think there are a few things that they really failed at and you don't realize it until you do a little bit of research on this laptop. Hope my review helped a new buyer make their...

Design: 5/5 - I like the design overall, more of an opinion than anything ; CPU: 5/5 - Intel, can't go wrong with that ; GPU: 4/5 - Beast of a GPU, but why choke it with 4 gigs ; Display: 5/5 - Nice bright display with different viewing options to...

I can honestly say the reason I took 2 eggs off of this ratings is due to the memory issues I have with this laptop and here's why. Upon receiving this laptop, I had hopes of upgrading the RAM to 4X8 of my own RAM for 32 gb of all the same RAM. Took...
