Summary: The MSI GT725's turbo overclocking feature is gimmicky, and the machine is -- on the whole -- hideously ugly. But it's also very fast and well-equipped. Buy it if you're not concerned with looks
Pros: Fast graphics; powerful quad-core CPU; Blu-ray drive; HDMI out.
Summary: The MSI GT725 offers very good quad-core performance and gaming muscle for a reasonable price of $1,699. Although you could spend less on the $1,399 Gateway P-7807u and get strong gaming performance, that system lacks the MSI's higher resolution and Blu-ray playback.
Conclusion: If ever there was a notebook that gave mixed feelings, MSI's GT725 is it. On the one hand, its potency in various usage scenarios has us going back for more - perhaps due to the fact that it scores higher in the performance stakes than my own desktop PC.
Summary: MSI's GT725 is a bleedingly fast laptop. There's a number of design and software concerns, however, the price alone allows most of these to be forgiven. If you need a powerful desktop replacement, consider the GT725.
Pros: Powerful graphics card and quad-core CPU, Full-sized keyboard, 1680x1050 resolution, Turbo mode allows for overclocking, Plenty of ports and options
Cons: Poor mouse buttons, Keyboard flexes a little, Hot air vent on right-hand side, 32-bit Windows can't use the full 4GB RAM, Battery obstructs power adapter movement, You really don't want to unplug this one from the wall, Touchpad driver still not included or offered on MSI website
Excerpt: The MSI GT725 bucks the trend amongst gaming laptops by actually being a laptop, rather than a desktop replacement you’d never dream of lugging out of the house. Find out if the MSI GT725 manages to combine power with portability in our review inside.
Pros: Unlike most of the gaming laptops on review here, it’s actually physically possible to carry the GT725 around with you – MSI’s even provided a reasonable sized backpack that won’t have you laughed at. Despite improved portability, there’s been no compromise in performance thanks to the ATI Mobili...
Cons: It may have the power to belt out top of the line graphics (4 whole gigs of RAM too), but the screen lets the side down: it may be 17 inches but the 1,680×1,050 resolution isn’t sparkling – it’d be nice for a laptop with a Blu-ray drive to have a 1080p screen too. You’ll just have to make do with...
Conclusion: Justo como o já testado GT 627 também pudemos entregar uma boa imagem geral do maior GT 725. Com respeito ao case, sua sensibilidade ás pressões às vezes é bastante notável, mas em um portátil DTR menos móvel isto não deveria causar maiores problemas.
