That’s correct, this MSI GE72 APACHE-235 is simply what you expect it is. I know I can stop it right here, but I will go to the details later on.
I could repeat what other reviewers of this Windows laptop say, but I am sure you want to know the other points that are not yet mentioned. Exactly that, I will write here.
Let’s start with the cons
A few things. First, the GE72 2QD Apache does not include SSD hard drive, but the hard drive is at 7200RPM so, it is faster than the standarad 5400 RPM standard speed, and it is 1 TB huge storage.
Second, the trackpad. This MSI GE72 APACHE-235 has slightly grain texture trackpad, which is ok to some people, but I find it annoying to use, so I am now using external mouse.
Next is the so-so things
– It is bigger than a standard 15 or 17 inch range laptops, but hey, this is a gaming device. Compared with my older standard laptop, It is thicker and larger.
– The keys are oddly located, a slightly different than the laptop keyboard I usually use. Especially the arrow keys, which are located too close to other keys around them.
-The aluminum body is expected to be fingerprint magnet, so it will get dirty look very fast, but you can clean it easily and fast too.
Now, let’s move the awesome things of MSI GE72 APACHE-235
– With the 3.5 GHz Intel quad-core i7 5700hq, GTX960M, and 16 gigs of RAM, this MSI GE72 APACHE-235 laptop can run my games very well, tried WoW, Tera, Guild Wars 2, all went at the range of 76 FPS and maximum settings, unbelieveable, but this will do it.
– Problems with gaming laptops, are getting warm or hot when you are gaming, however, the fans of this MSI GE72 APACHE-235 is on the back of the laptop, so it will help blowing the heat away from you or your finger. Plus, it has the Cooler Boost 3 technology, to keep things cooler by drawing its CPU and GPU heat from the heat pipes of the device.
– It is a fingerprint magnet, but I really like the brushed metal finish, looks sleek and sturdy.
-The keys on the keyboard is very responsive, and have many shortcuts buttons, for switching the backlit keys, the fan, and many more.
– The 17.3 inch screen is a TN matte screen (not IPS or touchscreen), this means, you have no glares, and have a good viewing angle, is a Full HD Wide Angle View screen with 1920×1080 screen resolution.
– The audio speaker is awesome, very rare on a laptop, but this laptop has a nice speaker, loud, and clear sound.
– You will have 3 USB 3.0 ports and 1 USB 2.0 ports, so 4 USB ports in total, which is very handy if you have tons of photos, videos, and files.
