Reviews for the MSI GV62 8RE-016US

81.5% MSI GV62 8RE (i5-8300H, GTX 1060, FHD) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
New engine, same body. MSI brings Coffee Lake to their entry-level GV62 line. While the new Intel CPU is a breath of fresh air, it is the only real change to the machine since last year. Buggy system behavior and a cheap plastic case keep the GV62 8RE from being little more than white noise.
