MSI GE620 Gaming Laptop Review (Core i7/Nvidia)

Rating: 8.0.

Gaming laptops are for an elite audience, where ultimate performance is paramount. Sadly they aren’t cheap either, often costing £1,500, or more. Fear ye not, for today because we are looking at the MSI GE 620, a 15.6 inch portable which packs in a Core i7 quad core processor, 4GB of fast DDR3 with Nvidia discrete graphics … and all for £800 inc vat. Surely there is a catch?

The GE620 is positioning itself as a viable machine for a wide audience who are interested in portable gaming. On paper it is certainly an impressive specification for well under a grand, we have tested the Intel Core i7-2630QM before and it is a fantastic processor.
