MSI GT62VR 7RE Dominator Pro Notebook Review


A balanced gaming laptop. MSI also uses the GeForce GTX 1070 graphic card in the GT62VR 7RE. The processor is new: Kaby Lake is used now. The rest of the features is also alright: IPS display, SSD+HDD, and 16 GB of RAM.

many maintenance options ; backlit keyboard ; good audio system ; IPS screen ; USB 3.1 Gen2 ; SSD + HDD

only one M.2 slot ; base unit is quite thick ; no Thunderbolt 3

The combination from Kaby Lake quad core processor and GeForce GTX 1070 can smoothly run all current games in Full HD resolution with high to maximum quality settings. Pro: Despite powerful hardware, the temperature increase is only moderate. The small...

MSI GT62VR 7RE Dominator Pro (i7-7820HQ/ GTX 1070/ 4K)

MSI Dominator Pro GT62VR 7RE 15.6" 4K Gaming Laptop - Black


Handles virtually any games on ultra settings, multitasks and doesn’t hiccup even with the most demanding things like rendering a 4K video, the speakers are great and the display is flawless

Battery could do with lasting a bit longer and the only issue is turbo mode isn’t selectable running on battery power but it’s no real issue

MSI Dominator Pro GT62VR 7RE 15.6" 4K Gaming Laptop - Black


Very Good Performance, Attractive laptop, very portable and great quality, Awesome display and audio. Extremely pleased with my Purchase!

It is costly, and because it doesn't use Nvidia Optimus the battery performance isn't as good as some of the rival laptops using the same graphics cards, i get a respectable 2-3 hours
