Reviews for the MSI Pulse GL76 12UGK-091UK
Put an Intel Core i9-12900H CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 GPU inside a laptop and it's going to do the business as far as running the best games of today – and in that respect the MSI Pulse GL76 has to score highly. It's got some of the top gaming laptop components packed inside, and if you decide to spend your money on this then you're going to have no complaints about how fast games run or how they look on the 17.3-inch display. As for everything else – it's not disappointing or underwhelming exactly, but just a bit more run-of-the-mill. We like that MSI has at least made an effort in jazzing up the design, with the help of Maarten Verhoeven, and if you like your gaming laptop design understated but not too understated then this is likely to appeal. As ever from MSI, the whole chassis is well put together and is going to last you a long, long time. The laptop does get a bit hot and a bit loud at times, and we can't give top marks in areas like sound quality or trackpad design either. Ideally, we'd want to see DisplayPort and the latest HDMI 2.1 standard supported too.

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.
