Reviews for the MSI Megabook GT725

80% MSI GT725-087UK review
Source: PC 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.

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.
