Reviews for the MSI GE62 7RE Apache Pro - 7RE-088
This MSI device is in a very competitive spot in the market. A number of gaming devices from HP, Lenovo, Dell (Alienware) and Asus are slugging it out in this space. These devices offer similar specifications at a similar price, and picking between them isn’t as easy as glancing at a spec sheet.

The MSI GE62 7RE Apache Pro is a great choice for those looking for an affordable gaming laptop that can perform as good as the desktop GTX 1050 Ti GPU. The laptop performs pretty well for 1080p gaming. The included M.2 SSD is definitely fast, although we hope that MSI offers a bigger SSD option.
