15.6" MSI GP62 7RD, 2.8GHz Core i7 7700HQ, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD, GeForce 2GB GTX 1050, DVD±RW, USB Type C, Win10 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the performance The laptop suits my needs well - emulating operating systems/app development and casual gaming (play GTA V). The performance has been great. The SSD is too small though and is already heavily used by bloatware and Windows which is a real shame. The 1TB HDD performance is decent but no SSD. Also more RAM would be useful and it's a shame that it can take up to 32GB but I cannot add it without breaking my warranty... The portability is good and battery life is respectable for a gaming laptop. Happy with the purchase at a price of 799 incl VAT at the time of purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a good job I bought this laptop despite rather than because of previous reviews, why you may ask? The truth is I wanted a machine that performed a very specific task that was beyond a lot of devices in the price range. The task was to run a game that has been with me in many iterations over the years namely Football Manager. This game as many of you are aware is effectively hampered / enhanced by being a very detailed database with a complex match engine and an element of 3d graphics. I needed number crunching which to me meant an i7 processor was a must. I was a little dubious about 8gb of Ram but honestly speaking this runs the current version of the game at a rate I've never had before with plenty of overhead available on both ram and processor with less than 50% of either in use almost all of the time. For this niche the leopard is an ideal device with an excellent keyboard feel and a screen that is pleasing to my eye. What I really have the highest praise for is the excellence of the partnership with Scan and their courier choice DPD. From order being placed to despatch took less than 50 minutes with updates at every stage. The delivery was free and trackable using DPD's excellent application on Android. I'm completely happy to recommend MSI, Scan and DPD and will happily use the same combination when it is time to upgrade. I must be absolutely honest and tell you the price played a factor as Scan were at the time around £50 cheaper than any alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Value I needed a capable machine on a budget for a workstation I can use to make music while on the road and also to use in our band's live performances. I found one! Great spec, great price and from a retailer I have 100% faith in - job done!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as descibed The laptop promotes a ssd speed of 2200mbs however it only runs at sata speeds of 500mbs. Also i found that after updating the software that comes with the laptop you loose a load of features if prompts, one of which is any features with the keyboard. it is a one color back-light but the effects got removed. I tried to talk to scan however they showed no interest in assisting me with these two issues. I contacted MSI who said the following regarding the keyboard. "Here’s the response our engineer has received with regard to the Steel Series keyboard no longer having the effects it used to have. GP62 7RD & GP72 7RD supports single-color (color white) backlight keyboard, therefore, it doesn’t support SteelSeries Engine 3 & other backlight adjustment function such as LED Wizard in Dragon Center. (ref: https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GP62-7RD-Leopard.html#hero-specification) If the older version can see the LED Wizard page, then it might be a bug for the older version." I found this to not be true as it was not a bug after i got hold of the change log. performance wise, its a good unit but i would changed the ram to 16gb 2x8. the graphics card has maxed everything i have thrown at it and streaming steam to and from my desktop is very stable with the wifi, lan is spot on

Questions & Answers

RAM Expansion

I would like to upgrade this to 16GB RAM. Are both slots occupied or can I add an extra 8GB DDR4 2400 module. Also is this DIMM or SODIMM? Thanks.
Asked by: AH333
Both slots are used. You can still expand the memory, but you're left with the current 16gb. Not sure if it's DIMM or SODIMM. But to be honest I wouldn't recommend this laptop.
