Reviews for the MSI GE62-2QEWi781
Source: Computer Shopper
At the end of the day, there are plenty of options, including some from MSI, for mobile gamers who want a system guaranteed to run everything you throw at it at the highest possible quality settings. The Apache doesn't make such a promise, but it does offer a whole lot of performance for its price and size.

Overall, the MSI GE62 Apache is a very good entry-level gaming laptop, with class-leading 3D performance numbers and gamer-friendly features, like the Steelseries keyboard with multi-colored backlighting. However, the Acer Aspire V 15 Nitro remains our Editors' Choice. It's $100 less expensive, comes with a speedy SSD, and delivers an hour more battery life.

There's a lot to like with the MSI GE62 2QE Apache. It's surprisingly compact for such a high-power laptop - in fact it's barely any bigger or heavier than your typical £300, 15.6in budget machine so it can certainly double as a standard laptop while acting as a desktop replacement gaming system when you get home.

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.
