MSI GL72M 7REX 1225UK (9S7-1799E5-1225)

MSI GL72M 7REX 1225UK (9S7-1799E5-1225) is a 17.3 inch gaming laptop powered by an i7 Kaby Lake processor, GTX 1050 graphics and a 256GB SSD. I think that this is the T Rex (7Rex) of gaming laptops and it will handle anything. It can also be used as a desktop replacement because of the previous mentioned components.

Benefits

The graphics card powering this device is a GTX 1050Ti model with 3GB of dedicated memory type GDDR5. This is the reason this laptop is considered to be a gaming one. There are some variations with MX150 but they’re not as good as this.
For processing this model uses an Intel i7 model 7700HQ with 4 cores. In a modern device the most important component is the CPU.
On the display part this device comes with a 17.3 inch diagonal and a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. On a laptop like this the viewing angles are good because of the IPS panel. It’s a common thing for laptops to have IPS panel so that not only the viewing angles are good but also the image quality.
Memory is more than enough… besides the 8GB of RAM is tha an 256GB SSD and an 1TB hard drive.

Downsides

The portability is not that great with a weight of about 2.7kg and a battery that can last up to 3-4 hours. The big weight is because of the 17 inch screen. (Compared to other 17 inch laptops this one has a small weight because other have a weight above 3kg.)
Does not have any optical drive, so you can install another Operating System only by using an USB stick.

Conclusion

This MSI GL72M 7REX 1225 UK laptop is for those interested in a device that can replace a desktop and have all the processing power needed in new games, CAD applications or other demanding programs.
This model does not cost much but if you want a cheaper alternative than you could consider 225 – the cheaper 15.6 inch alternative.
