There is no doubt that MSI’s commitment towards the gaming industry has brought out the best in portable gaming systems. Today we have the MSI GE62 7RE Apache Pro laptop sporting the desktop-class NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti GPU. 

Design

Not anything out of the ordinary, but we are already quite familiar with the design language of the recent MSI GE series laptops which are quite impressive. The laptop surprisingly weighs only 2.4kg for a laptop that holds a large 15.6-inch display.


The full HD IPS panel offers deep colors with MSI’s True Color enhancements and good viewing angles. There is an HD camera above the display that can capture 720p video at 30fps.


The multi-color backlight SteelSeries 3 keyboard remains almost the same as other MSI laptops that we had reviewed earlier. Gaming on the laptop’s keyboard felt great. The palm rest area is smooth with a hairline finish. However, the trackpad  isn’t as smooth as the palm rest.


The main power button is located above the keyboard on the right end. There are other two buttons for max fan speed and keyboard backlight control.


Speaking of cooling, MSI has integrated dual rear-facing Cooler Booster-4 vents on the back that does the job well. During our tests, we could feel the laptop getting slightly hot towards the top of the keyboard. 


MSI has placed the system load and HDD LED indicators on the front end of the laptop in between the dual Dynaudio speakers with Nahimic 2 sound technology, which sounded great by the way.


Talking about the ports, the MSI GE62 7RE Apache Pro features an RJ-45 port (Killer E2500 Gigabit LAN Controller for lower gaming latency), 2 x Type A USB 3.0 ports, 1 x HDMI with 4K@30 Hz support, 1 x mini Display Port, and one USB Type-C USB 3.1 Gen2 port to serve all your new smartphones, all those on the left side. On the right side is the DVD Super Multi drive, an SD card reader, one USB 2.0 port, and the power connector.
