Pros

  • NVIDIA GTX 1060

  • Powerful i7 CPU
  • VR ready
  • Good keyboard

Cons

  • Battery life
  • Bulky and heavy
  • Odd amount of RAM
  • Smaller SSD

Bottom Line

The MSI GT72VR 6RD Dominator-033 offers powerful hardware for the hardcore gamer, but the tiny 256GB SSD will fill up almost instantly with the size of modern apps and games.


The MSI GT72VR 6RD Dominator-033 is a bestselling 2016 gaming laptop from MSI that has been praised for its VR support, G-SYNC display, fast sixth generation Intel processor, dedicated 10-series NVIDIA graphics and for its aggressive gaming looks. However, the 256GB SSD is far too small for newer games and apps, and the MSI GT72VR 6RD Dominator-033 also features an odd amount of RAM. Luckily both the M.2 SSD and the RAM can easily be upgraded to increase the Dominator’s performance for hardcore gaming or more intensive apps.

    If size and weight aren't concerns, then the GT72VR is your best bet with GTX 1060 graphics. Surface temperatures and fan noise are both low for a gaming notebook.
