MSI GL62M 7REX-1896US Review: The Most Powerful Cheap Gaming Laptop?

The MSI GL62M 7REX-1896US sports a timeless, portable design that will appeal to anyone who is frequently on the move and want to carry games along, to avoid the hustle of connecting to an external display. Its performance is good, but isn’t the best among its midrange competitors that offer even better components.

Pros:
– i7-7700 HQ Quadcore CPU up to 3.8ghz
– Nvidia 1050ti with 4GB DDR5
– Both an SSD and HDD (Although you can always add these yourselves, it was nice to have come with both)
– Cooling system is one of the best Ive seen so far (Includes an Ultra-Boost button to give you extra cooling, but never needed to use it.)
– Fan disperses air away from the back screen of the laptop, rather than the side of the keyboard. (I prefer this design better)
– Red Backlit keyboard (Color cant be changed, but I wasnt specifically looking for a flashy laptop so this is just a plus)
– Overall Matte Black texture around the laptop with pleasing MSI dragon logo on the back screen.
– AntiGlare Screen
– Num. Pad keyboard
– Comes with 1 year manufacturer warranty(US) (You’ll have to activate it online yourself.)

Cons:
– Although aesthetically pleasing, the Matte Black Plastic Finish is a FINGERPRINT/OIL magnet and takes more than just a dry cloth to remove
– 8GB RAM (I intend to add on another 8GB stick in the nearby future)
– Battery life is ridiculous when playing games
– Fans are REALLY loud when playing games (Not much of a problem if you wear headphones, and is expected as it does a splendid job keeping the laptop cool)
– Speakers are subpar (Again, not much of a problem if you wear headphones)
