Bottom Line

The MSI GT72S Dominator Pro G-220 offers a superior gaming experience to those who can afford its heftier price tag.


The MSI GT72S Dominator Pro G-220 is a powerful gaming rig in the high-end laptop market. Praised for its powerful hardware, its IPS display with G-Sync and for its powerful graphics. Some users have commented on the high price tag and the fact that it once again only comes with a Full-HD display and not 4K or even QHD+. But the display is not enough of a reason not to purchase it and if you are lucky enough to have a budget that spreads to this price bracket then the MSI GT72S Dominator Pro G-220 will make a fine desktop replacement.

    The MSI GT72S Dominator Pro has plenty of power thanks to a desktop graphics card, but it can't overcome its terrible battery and cheap plastic feel.
