Bottom Line

The GL72 has been upgraded to by Computer Upgrade King to offer better performance and a generous amount of storage space. But the 2TB hard drive is a slower 5400rpm drive.

The MSI GL72 is a bestselling MSI gaming laptop that has been praised for its large amount of storage space, its 6th generation Intel Skylake processor and for its healthy amount of RAM. Computer Upgrade King have taken GL72 and have upgraded it to increase its performance. With its large amount of storage space you can easily store all of your media and games. But the 2TB mechanical hard drive is only a 5400rpm drive which offers slower read/write speeds.
