Reviews for the MSI Megabook GT725

80% MSI GT725-087UK review
Source: Tech Advisor English

The MSI GT725 is - literally and figuratively - a bit lighter than its beefy 17in gaming laptop competitors. And that's not necessarily a bad thing: the price is a little lower than the cost of many other desktop replacements, while the hefty 3.5kg case is a shade more manageable than many. What matters more in this case is that it provides strong performance for a reasonable £1,117. This MSI laptop offers good gaming performance but makes some missteps with its muted screen and its awkward keyboard. Overall, the GT725 is a competent gaming and entertainment laptop. It'll fill other roles when needed, but it seems like itself only when you're shooting 3D aliens or playing movies.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4850:

Based on the desktop HD 4850 but with slower clock rates, the Radeon HD 4850 features DirectX 10.1 support with a relatively large 256 bit memory bus.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.


Q9000:

Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.

17.00":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

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).


83.8%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
