Reviews for the MSI GV62 8RE-016US
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.
As is customary for MSI, with the launch of next-gen products they are keen to revamp product lines and the MSI GV62 8RE is one such laptop which now benefits from Intel’s 8th Generation (Coffee Lake) CPUs.
