Reviews for the MSI GE62-2QEWi78H11
Source: Expert Reviews
The MSI GE62 2QE Apache is a well-specified gaming laptop with a great screen, although at its original £1100+ price, we weren't convinced it was good value. However, now that the cost of this machine has fallen by nearly £200, it's fantastic. It's easily comparable to the likes of the Scan 3XS Graphite LG157, which is only very slightly cheaper than the specification on test here. With its excellent screen and top-notch graphics performance, the MSI GE62 2QE Apache gets a Best Buy award.

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

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.
