82% iBuyPower MSI GE62 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
The entry-level enthusiast. The GTX 960M has arrived and iBuyPower are already geared up with the new GPU for their current OptiBoost lineup. Is this the Maxwell card to own for the mass market?
80% MSI's GE62 2QD

Most gamers turn to desktops because they are inexpensive to buy or build, can be upgraded with ease, and offer solid performance. The alternative is gaming-focused desktop replacement notebooks that, while heavy, are infinitely more portable than a desktop PC. A feature-rich and potent gaming notebook that also packs serious punch when it comes to value for money.

Sensibly powered for great games action, while remaining portable and comfortable to use, the GE62 is only compromised by tricky upgrade potential and disappointing battery life. It has a great display and respectable keyboard for gaming, and crucially plays games at high detail without distress.

77% MSI GE62 Apache Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
In short, the MSI GE62 Apache is a well-rounded gaming laptop with solid real-world performance and a wallet-friendly price. This notebook falls short in terms of battery life and gets a little too hot for prolonged “laptop” use, but any other complaints are pretty minor. We highly recommend the MSI 6E62 Q2E Apache if you’re looking for a 15-inch laptop that can play just about any game and you need to spend less than $1,500.

80% MSI GE62 2QD Apache review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The MSI GE62 2QD Apache does enough to be well worth considering as a slimmer and lighter alternative to your more typical bulky 15in gaming laptop. Plus, for its price of just over £1000 it offers competitive performance. However, the keyboard layout and a few other minor irritations means it doesn’t quite win us over completely.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
4720HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
2.4 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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 is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


79.8%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
