MSI GE Series GE72 Apache Pro-242 Gaming Laptop 5th Generation Intel Core i7 5700HQ (2.70 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 3 GB GDDR5 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price
3GB GTX 970GPU
I7 5700HQ
3x M.2 SSD slots (2x dedicated, 1x combo slot with RAID support)
Full 1080p

Cons: Lack of actual specification for the laptop there are many benefits that are not listed on newegg here of how to do certain upgrades or even from MSI you have to dig pretty deep on google to get the information to include taking the back off (punching through anti-tampering sticker) to do upgrades will not void the warranty. See here https://service.msicomputer.com/msi_user/support/techfaqdetail.aspx?formid=3070

Other Thoughts: I have had the laptop for almost a month and I have to say this is one of the best laptops not just for gaming but for looks. It also had some hidden gems to include the 3x M.2 slots I found to upgrade HDD space to go along with a regular HDD slot on the laptop. The fans engineered in a way that it keeps the GPU cool and CPU even under a heavy load. I have been playing GW2 the fans do turn on and can be heard if there is no other noise but keeps the CPU around 70C and GPU around 70C with an air temp of about 21C. The keyboard feels fantastic compared to some laptop keys and with the cosmetics of having the steel series controls for the LED is just a fun extra playing with the lights. Overall, I wold look no further for an excellent gaming laptop that does not break the bank.

Pros: Super fast M.2 SSD for an excellent price
Easy Install
Fantastic Packaging

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: While looking for a M.2 SSD look no further, you will get there speeds they advertise or dang near. I recommend everyone whom uses a Samsung to use the Samsung magician software as it makes updating drivers, changing profiles and changes so easy compared to doing it manually.
