Reviews for the MSI Megabook GT735

90% MSI GX720 & MSI GT735
Source: Inside HW English

If we consider gaming performances, the winner is decided by nuances and better optimization for one or other graphics card. That means, that in some games better frame rate will have GX720 and in some GT735. Processor overclock sounds like great possibility but it results with little improvements in games because bottle neck is actually graphics cards. What model you will choose depends on your budget, but one thing is for sure: you will get very quality notebook with enviably performances as in games as in all other segments.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3850: Lower clocked desktop HD 3850 manufactured in 55 nm and with DirectX 10.1 support. The performance should be somewhere between 8800 GTS and GTX and therefore it should perform quite well for games like Call of Duty 4. The Avivo HD video engine helps the cpu in decoding HD videos.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

AMD Turion X2 Ultra: The AMD Turion X2 Ultra is part of the Puma platform and a mixture of the old K9 core (form the Turion 64 X2) and some parts of the K10 architecture (memorycontroller, hypertransport, crossbar switch from the Phenom). Because of the increased L2 cache ("Ultra" CPUs) and the improved memory controller, the performance increased a bit. Still a similar clocked Core 2 Duo is noticably faster.


Mixture out of two K8 based cores and K10 uncores (e.g. memory controller). Offers improved power saving functions compared to older Turion CPUs but still not as good and fast as a Core 2 Duo.

17.0": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.7 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.

MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI reviews

85.6%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
