MSI GE70 Apache Notebook Review

Notebookcheck
20 May 2014
  • Summary: Dragon Blood. Although the GE70 does not sport the strongest gaming graphics card, the 17-inch device supplies more than attractive performance. Unlike other laptop experts, MSI uses a GDDR5 rather than a DDR3 VRAM for the GTX 850M model. Our report shows just how big the performance difference is in practical use.
  • Pros: Matte and high-contrast Full HD screen, Chassis not overly heavy or bulky, Good maintenance options, GTX 850 in conjunction with GDDR5 VRAM, Brushed aluminum, Backlit keyboard, Decent sound, Slim power supply, Stylish looks, The GTX 850M with the GDDR5 VRAM only lags marginally behind the GTX 860M.
  • Cons: Unreliable ClickPad lacking accuracy, 3D operating temperatures, Interface distribution, Throttling in full load, High noise level, Moderate battery runtime, Sluggish HDD, Bloatware, The laptop is slowed down without an SSD. A stronger battery would also be nice.

  • Conclusion: In the end, the MSI GE70 2OE-017US isn't the fastest or coolest-looking laptop, but with 12GB of RAM, a swift quad-core CPU, a standard Blu-ray drive, and a huge, beautiful screen, it's a heck of a nice package for the price.
  • Pros: Good performance, Excellent display, Solid, backlit keyboard, Superb sound
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life, A few annoying key placements, Bloatware

4 August 2013
  • Summary: Gaming package. A matte 17.3-inch Full HD display, an Intel Core i7-4700MQ and a GeForce GTX 765M are the key features of the MSI GE70.

  • Pros: Matte and bright display, Full HD with high contrast ratio, Backlit keyboard, Good gaming performance, The bright, high contrast and matte display.
  • Cons: No SSD (HDD slows down the system), Very high temperatures, Keyboard layout, An SSD to improve the system performance.

Review MSI GE70-i547W7H Notebook

Notebookcheck
18 June 2012
  • Summary: Lean GT gamer. The GE range aims at tighter budgets and bids midrange hardware. The matte FHD screen is appealing, but SteelSeries has not done itself a favor with the keyboard. What is possible with the combination of a GT 650M GPU and Intel's i5 Ivy bridge processor?
  • Pros: Stable load performance, Good gaming performance, High contrast FHD, Matte TFT screen, Four speakers, Easy access hardware (upgrade, cleaning)
  • Cons: Clattery keyboard, Yielding chassis, No eSATA, Stiff touchpad keys, High weight
