Reviews for the MSI GT72S-6QE32SR42BW Tobii
If you're in the market for a 17-inch MSI gaming laptop and you don't need the desktop graphics power of the Dominator Pro, there's almost no reason to pick up this Tobii-equipped model. It offers plenty of performance and the eye-tracking system will just click with you automatically. That said until there are more titles are on the horizon and greater Windows 10 integration, it feels like a bit of a beta product. It's similar to the Leap-equipped HP laptops that came out in the last few years, and I personally hope Tobii's system doesn't end up at the same dead end.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops.

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.
