Reviews for the MSI WE72 7RJ

80.5% MSI WE72 7RJ (7700HQ, FHD, M2200) Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
Workstation with gaming roots. MSI offers mobile workstations based on its gaming laptops for quite a while now. The WE72 is a new 17-inch system, but is the implementation of a professional graphics card sufficient to satisfy demanding customers?
80% MSI WE72 7RJ Review
Source: Laptop Mag English Archive.org version
The MSI WE72 7RJ is a capable workstation that will handle any task you throw at it with aplomb. It offers strong performance, a fast SSD and a very comfortable keyboard; but while the screen outputs vivid colors, it's not as bright as competitors' offerings.

NVIDIA Quadro M2200: Mid-range workstation graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture (28nm GM206 chip similar to the new revision of the Geforce GTX 965M).

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

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. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.924 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
