Product on Review: GE62 7RE APACHE PRO
Manufacturer & Sponsor: MSI
Street Price: UK £1199 US $TBA
2017 began with an explosion of technology announcements at CES just a matter of weeks ago; heralding a step forward in both the CPU and GPU realms. The mobile platform itself received a double helping with by way of the new Intel 7th Generation processors and entry-level NVIDIA GTX 1050/Ti.
MSI’s laptop division are known for seizing the opportunity and ‘striking while the iron is hot’ and today’s product review in question epitomises just that. Within the MSI GE62 7RE resides the new Intel 7th Generation Core i7-7700HQ processor and the newly unveiled GTX 1050 Ti. By offering 8GB DDR4 and a SATA-based M.2 SSD this new laptop is likely to be regarded as an entry-level performer, but which is bolstered by the new Kaby Lake quad-core unit.
The question is, can this new laptop offer good value at its price-point?
