Reviews for the MSI GE62 2QD
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?
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.

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.

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.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops.

Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
