Reviews for the MSI GE62 7RD-219XES

70% MSI GE62 7RD Apache gaming laptop review
Source: Good Gear Guide English
At $1,999 this is one of the “cheapest” hardcore gaming laptops that we’ve seen. It’s a bit weird that it’s actually not too great for gaming, but there’s certainly a market among the competitive players who focus on older games. If you want a slightly larger screen (and more weight) there’s the Apache Pro for $200 more, but this is only very slightly faster and the improvements aren’t really significant.
