MSI GL62M 7REX Gaming Laptop Under 1000 Dollars Review

If you are that exciting to see a new gaming machine on this year, then you probably have familiar with this product. MSI now brings their gaming series to the larger audience with its great specs, but in lightweight and portable design. Now, this kind of laptop is very efficient in term of design and it does not have to be big and heavy. This is the future we see now and MSI expect that this product will replace a standard desktop for playing games.

In few ways, MSI is such a great company for its high quality products and great consumer service. However, they are kindly having too many lines up series which is tough for some gamers. That is the main reason why I decided to make this review. Today, we will review GL62M which is newly released. If you expect to see more, then make sure to stick with till the end.

That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to see it deeper into the system and specifications. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.

The High Functionality Keyboard

Keyboard is making such a huge different on playing games. I have found so many machines with great specifications, but not with a fully experience keyboard. Luckily, MSI enhance the option by providing us a backlit keyboard. It enables us even in darkest room. The arrow key itself is designed in red color and will make you easily on execution during the gameplay.

The highly efficient keyboard is also supported by chassis that looks slimmer in comparable with Apache. The slimmer body means it will make it easily to get around, but sadly you are going to miss the Blu-ray player and bigger battery. But, I still it as huge improvement from the previous model. The company decided to get rid of Blu-ray player might because it’s not necessary anymore.

Performance Test

MSI GL62M 7REX 2As for the performance, you should not be worry with combination of quad core CPU Intel I7-7700HQ and Nvidia GTX 1050TI. It also features of 8GB of RAM and 1TB plus 128 GB SSD storage that boosts the performance into maximum level easily. I have tested its performance on some games and benchmark. The result itself is quite great for this price.

In PC Mark, I was able to get score for around 3600 in Turbo Mode. The result is not that far behind with Nvidia GTX 1070 that scores around 4000. In gaming test, I also tested some of oldest and newest games. For older title, I tested of GTA 5 and the stable FPS is possible here in high setting. You will never have any problem on playing it on high setting, but the result might difference on ultra-setting where the FPS is easily drop.

As for newer title, I tested Battlefield 1 and I could get 60 FPS on the medium setting. If the result is that much, then many other games like Overwatch and Counter Strike will offer us better result since their specifications are lower than those games.

Battery Life And Portability

The battery on GL62M is equipped with 6 cell battery that has total of 3834mAh juice. The charging time is quite long where it needs to fully charged on 3 or 4 hours. For watching movies, I am able to get around 4 hours for full HD movie. For gaming itself, it should be depended on the setting and brightness, but the overall time is four or five hours straight.

The smaller chassis and batter means giving slightly lighter weight in comparable with Apache. The weight itself is 2.3 KG where Apache has 3KG of weight. You can get total weight for 2.3 KG here, but you still have to include of its 600G power supply.
