Reviews for the MSI GT72-6QD81FD

80% MSI GT72 6QD Dominator G Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
You can find the MSI GT72 6QD Dominator G retailing at around Rs. 1,68,000, and it has a 2-year warranty. The laptop is serviceable anywhere in the world if you buy it in India, though strangely the reverse doesn't hold true. Yes, this is a lot of money for a gaming laptop, but when you consider the other contenders at around this price level, such as the HP Omen, MSI does offer much better value considering its excellent gaming performance and upgradability. You'll have to forego the portability and style that the Omen offers, but the GT72 is just a much better all-rounder.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M 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.  
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» 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.
