The rad thing about the Apache Pro is that you're getting awesome gaming performance at a price point that used to be reserved for only serviceable gaming performance. Nobody ever went out and bought a $1,599 gaming laptop because it had precisely the GPU they truly craved, instead compromising some level of graphics performance for a cheaper price tag. Typically if you wanted a laptop with a GTX 980M inside, you had to spend several hundred dollars more.

Although the external design has had very few alterations compared to the previous generation of notebooks from MSI, the overall theme and aesthetics still oozes finesse – bringing that touch of elegance and adding in one or two gamer oriented trimmings. The keyboard in particular stands out as a particular highlight with GE62VR; boasting the best LED backlighting we’ve ever seen. The SteelSeries partnership continues for this specific feature and the corresponding SteelSeries ENGINE 3 software works very well in offering all the per-key customisation you’d want including tweaking commands, lighting and macros. For those wanting to tone things down, there is the option to disable all lighting too.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders.

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.
