Introduction


From the MSI website:
Dedicated to customer-driven innovation, MSI leverages its remarkable R&D strengths to craft top-notch, well-acclaimed motherboards, graphics cards, notebook PCs and All-in-One PCs. The Overclocking Series is designed for enthusiasts who pursue extreme performance and go after world records. Aimed at fulfilling the needs and expectations toward professional gaming, the MSI GAMING Series receives gamers' unanimous acclaim. Incorporating Military Class components, the Classic Series has an excellent reputation for quality and durability. All these distinctive products have made MSI a forerunner in the middle-range and high-end market. Also adding to the lineup are cloud servers, tailor-made IPCs, intelligent panoramic camera (Panocam), robotic appliances and human-centric vehicle electronics that further demonstrate MSI's strengths and endeavors in consumer, commercial and IOT(Internet of Things) markets.

MSI has become a powerhouse in the world of electronics. Formed way back in 1986, the company has since managed to expand into nearly every sector of the market. Their attention to brand identity and marketing while expanding has paved the way in their rise to becoming a leading manufacturer and easily recognizable brand. From graphics cards, motherboards, laptops, all-in-one systems, and, most recently, fully featured desktops, MSI has been on a roll and doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon.

Today, I will be looking at their MSI Apache Pro GE72VR laptop. This 17" model features an Intel Skylake Core i7-6700HQ quad-core for number crunching and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 for gaming. That's right, the GTX 1060 in this laptop is essentially the same as its desktop counterpart, which should make for some exceptional performance. Overall, this laptop from MSI is shaping up to be a good all-arounder in terms of size, weight, and specs, but let's take a closer look before we prematurely hatch a dragon.
