There aren’t a lot of 17.3-inch models currently available and the reason for that might be that usually, they weigh a ton and portability becomes an issue. However, the larger screen is ideal for playing video games or watching movies and to be fair even a 3-4 kg notebook is easier to carry than a full desktop and all its peripherals. Some gamers are ready to sacrifice some of the portability for the benefits of a larger display. MSI does not want to let these gamers behind so they introduce the new GP72 notebook.
The MSI GP72 is, in fact, the most affordable currently available 17.3-inch model equipped with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. Speaking of the display, it has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD).Although, the GTX 1050 Ti is not the most powerful GPU it is capable enough of running all modern titles set of medium graphics settings with a solid 60 fps. The GPU is paired with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ and 8 GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 2400 MHz. You get 256 GB of M.2 SSD storage. This configuration can be yours for the reasonable price of $1126.99.
Just like the PL62, that we mentioned a few days back, the GP72 a few of MSI’s exclusive features like Cooler Boost 4 cooling system which is set to keep the device cool even after long gaming sessions. Other special features include Nahimic 2-enhanced audio system that provides virtual 7.1 surround sound for more immersive gaming.
