Bottom Line

The MSI GE72VR Apache Pro-023 is a powerful gaming laptop that sports the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, but like most gaming laptops the battery life is quite poor and is suited more as a desktop replacement.

The MSI GE72VR Apache Pro-023 is a bestselling high-end gaming laptop that has been praised for its Full-HD IPS display, Skylake based i7 processor, great port selection, latest GTX graphics card and for its combination of SSD and HDD storage. But like most high-end gaming laptops it offers poor battery life while gaming and is quite bulky. You also get an odd amount of RAM, but you can always upgrade it to 16GB. Sporting the latest 10-series NVIDIA graphics card, the MSI GE72VR Apache Pro-023 will easily handle any of the latest AAA gaming titles.
