Model:

The GT72 Dominator Pro series is the best that MSI has to offer this season. Insanely powerful hardware is combined with the best the gaming laptop category of this generation has to offer. The GT72 comes in 4 different editions, and we will focus on the 2PE-006FR here.

Wanting to surpass its predecessor, the GT72 has been completely redesigned from scratch. The chassis is rather angular in design. The top is made out of aluminum while plastics is used for the bottom. The matte black chassis has a red logo on the lid. Its SteelSeries backlit keyboard can be customized. The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro also comes with a huge 17.3 inch Full HD screen (1920 x 1080 pixels).

When it comes to processing power, it goes without saying that the GT72 delivers. With a powerful configuration that includes an Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M graphics card, an Intel 4th Gen i7 4710HQ processor and 16 GB of RAM (up to 32GB possible), it can maintain a decent frame rate while running the most graphic intensive games in the market.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M: High-end graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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.  
4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.3":

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.

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.
