Specs

Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 16 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA plus 128 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10

Benefits

– No shortage of performance due to the high end Intel Core i7 processor along with 16 GB of RAM
– Your storage needs should be well covered as it has both a large 1 TB SATA hard drive along with a smaller but fast performing 128 GB SSD
– The Geforce GTX graphics card has 3 GB of dedicated memory which is still enough to handle most users gaming needs
– With dual fans along with 6 heat pipes this laptop can handle the heat and keep cool when performing resource intensive tasks
– The backlit keyboard is great when working in poorly lit locations

Downsides

– MSI gaming laptops have never been able to really keep up to much of the competition when it comes to battery life so why should be expect a more budget friendly model to fair any better. You may only find yourself getting up to 3 hours on a single charge
– The dual hard drive is great but with most other models going with a 256 GB SSD the 128 GB that is on this model seems disappointing

Verdict

The MSI GV62 8RE may not have all the bells and whistles that you will find in most MSI laptops but since it does have a much more budget friendly price that fact that it still comes with a very impressive lineup of hardware makes this model great value for its price.
