Bottom Line

With its lower price, the CX62 7QL-058 is a winner for the gamer on a tight budget. While some of MSI’s flashy design features are missing, it’s still all MSI under the hood.


The MSI CX62 7QL-058 is one of the most under rated and modest of MSI’s budget laptops. MSI has packed the CX62 with quite a few features that are usually only found on higher end laptops, such as a dedicated graphics card, USB 3.1 , Mini DisplayPort, Type-C and a Kaby Lake i5 processor. With 8GB of DDR4 RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX, the CX62 will run most AAA gaming titles on low to medium graphics settings. Unfortunately, you still get the same 1366 x 768 resolution display as last year’s model and they have even downgraded the hard drive to a slower 5400rpm mechanical hard drive.

    Don't let the GE62 chassis fool you - the CX62 is far too weak for most games and its 768p TN display is horrid.
