70% MSI WS72
Source: Computer Shopper English Archive.org version
Judging from the machines that have crossed our test bench in the last couple of months, competition in the mobile workstation space is heating up. The WS72 brings some of MSI's traditional strengths—aggressive pricing, stylish design, garish keyboard lighting—to the category, while being more portable than most of its 17.3-inch cousins.

Comment

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).


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