Designing a balanced laptop that offers users a satisfactory experience when they use it to play, but at the same time has a moderate price, is not easy. However, the MSI GP62MVR 7RFX-1227XES is exactly that. It is part of the range of access to 15.6 " gaming laptops that have an affordable price tag but also decent performance. The most attractive components of this notebook are its 120Hz IPS LCD screen and its NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU. MSI engineers have opted for an IPS LCD panel with antireflective coverage and Full-HD resolution. But what makes this screen really interesting are its native 120Hz refresh rate and its response time of 3 ms, two very appealing features for a team designed to display games vibrantly. The choice of the GPU is also what users would expect in a gaming notebook, a GeForce GTX 1060 from NVIDIA backed by 3 GB of GDDR5-type memory. As far as RAM is concerned, the starting point for this model is 8 GB of DDR4. As for storage, it has a mechanical hard drive by Seagate with a capacity of 1 TB. The next component that is worth a look is the CPU. It has a microprocessor Core i5-7300HQ, not an Intel Core i7. Even so, this chip should offer an interesting performance with games, because the maximum clock frequency is usually more important in this area, which in this Core i5 is 3.5 GHz.
As for the design, the chassis of the laptop combines polycarbonate and aluminum alloy. The first of these materials is used at the base and side of the laptop, while the cover that supports the keyboard and touchpad is made of very good quality aluminum alloy, and with a nice touch. The back cover of the screen, which is to some extent responsible for giving structural rigidity to the laptop and also to protect the delicate panel of random impacts, is made of brushed aluminum alloy. The material used in the heat pipe responsible for transporting heat dissipated by the chips is copper. Undoubtedly, it was a wise decision, since this element has a higher heat conductivity index than aluminum. In addition, the presence of two fans of a respectable size contributes to the transfer of heat by the copper, preventing the hardware to reach the maximum temperature threshold. As far as connectivity is concerned, MSI has done well. This device incorporates controllers compatible with the wireless WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2 standards. In addition, on the left side of the chassis, users have a wide range of connectors, including two USB-3.0 ports, one USB Type-C, one mini-DisplayPort and an HDMI output capable of transporting 4K UHD signals with a cadence of 30 Hz. Unlike the left side profile, the right side only picks up a USB-2.0 port, a slot that allows users to read the contents of SD cards, and the necessary power connector.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile: The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
i5-7300HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.5 - 3.5 GHz without Hyper Threading (which is supported by the faster i7 CPUs). The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1000 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
