Finding a good gaming laptop on a budget can be quite a tough nut to crack. There are so many laptops available in the market that one getting baffled is, in fact, a matter of seconds. Today, we are gonna take a close look at MSI GL62M 7REX-1896US. Head forward then.
- CPU – Intel Core i7 Quad-Core (7th Gen), 2.8 GHz
- GPU – 4 GB DDR5, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
- Memory – 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4
- Screen – 15.6-inch Full HD IPS (1,920x 1,080)
- Storage – 1 TB SATA HDD + 128 GB SSD
- OS – Windows 10 Home edition
- Speed – MSI GL62M 7REX-1896US runs as smoothly as a Ferrari soaring through the driveway with its 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor in unison with its 8 GB RAM and 4 GB NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. It can tackle almost any task, be it some processor heavy multitasking job or just another graphics intensive shoot ‘em up game, quite gracefully. The GTX 1050 Ti is capable of running many popular games like Hitman, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto V in the medium or high quality at a decent frame rate, if not in the ultra settings.
- Cooling – The ventilation system in a laptop should be great; even more so if it is a gaming laptop like MSI GL62M 7REX-1896US. It surely knows its job. The cooling system with Cooler Boost technology and 6-7 heat pipes makes sure you never overheat your laptop.
- Feel – The laptop looks pretty badass in the black base colour with red highlight. The backlit keyboard in red looks pretty damn cool. Typing in it is a pure fun. The keys need exactly as much pressure as they should. The touchpad is quite good as well, to be honest.
- Battery backup – For a gaming laptop like MSI GL62M 7REX-1896US, it is expected it to last for a decent amount of time. And that is the part it lags; a lot actually. In a standard situation, while watching videos and surfing the net, it lasts as long as 4 hours max. It comes down to a miniscule 3 hours while using its graphical capabilities. So, you better get a hold of the charger if you’re in the mood for some shootout.
- Crappy plastic – Okay, we know that it’s pretty lightweight for being a gaming PC with just 5.3 lbs. It has got a plastic fibre body rather than a metal body which is quite uncommon for a gaming laptop. This plastic material is prone to get flexes. So, you better watch out.
If you’re in the in the hunt for a high-performance gaming laptop on a tight budget, MSI GL62M 7REX-1896US can be a good choice for you. It’s a good bargain if you ask me. One last thing though, if you have some room in your budget then get the version of this model with the higher specifications (RAM, SSD etc.). It would surely be worth your money.
