Reviews for the MSI GS73VR 7RF-210

Actually, apart from the heat and loudness of this super thin gaming laptop, we didn’t find any major drawbacks that would outweigh (pun intended) the slim design and super light body for this size of a notebook. Tell us what you think of the MSI GS73VR 7RF Stealth Pro in the comments. Would you sacrifice performance for portability?

Ultimately, I cannot recommend the MSI GS73VR 7RF Stealth Pro based on its pricing and build quality. Perhaps another configuration, particularly one without a 4K screen, would be a better value, but my misgivings regarding the construction would likely remain the same. There are many better deals out there, and for less money. The Editors' Choice HP Omen 17, in particular, boasts a higher-quality design, an Nvidia GTX 1070 card and a 4K screen, for a significantly lower price of $1,799.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): 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.
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.
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» 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.

40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
