The question is whether MSI Vector GP76 is a good choice as a gaming laptop? Well, the answer isn’t as simple. It totally depends upon what you are looking for in a gaming laptop. For instance, if you are looking for a 17-inch gaming laptop with RAW performance, then the MSI Vector GP76 is a good choice to go with. If you are a heavy gamer or casual gamer and looking for a gaming laptop that offers the latest and greatest available in the market and a machine that can handle that level of performance without throwing tantrums, then also, the MSI GP76 is a good choice for you. Content creators too can opt for this laptop without any worries. However, if want to carry your laptop with you and looking for something that offers good battery life, then you might want to look for something else.

The MSI Vector GP76 gives gamers a lot of what they want with outstanding performance, a great keyboard and a solid 360Hz refresh rate display, but the painfully bad battery life and overall poor thermal performance make it tough to recommend over some of the competition. Now if you never, or at least rarely, use your laptop away from a charger and you do all of your gaming with a headset on, that changes the equation significantly for you. I’d still recommend you at least peruse our best gaming laptops before you pull the trigger on the Vector GP76, but acknowledging its few drawbacks, the rest of the package offered is solid and unquestionably delivers an excellent gaming experience.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
