12 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One person considered that it was not easy to use. Notebookcheck.net mentioned two years ago “Does not have a negative impact in practical use” but they rated the MSI GP70 74 out of 100.

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

At only 1.74 gigabytes, the MSI GP70 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other gaming laptops that were released more than a year ago. Across all the portable PCs that were released one year ago the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1.7GB to 32GB.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most laptops of this age and type do not have a full-size keyboard. The MSI GP70 is no exception to this as it too does not have a full-size keyboard.

There are a number of alternative laptops which also have a full-size keyboard that you might also want to look at including the GL771JW, the G771JM, or the G751J all from Asus.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen

The MSI GP70 does not have a touch sensitive screen. Most of the other laptops of a comparable type and age to the GP70 also do not have a touch sensitive screen.

We think you might also be interested in other notebook PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen including the Alienware 13, or the Razer Blade.

Very Small Internal Memory

The average internal memory of portable PCs that were released around the same time as the GP70 is 13GB. With an internal memory of only 8 gigabytes, the MSI GP70 has a fairly small internal memory compared to most of the other gaming laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the GP70.

We compared all the other 8GB internal memory laptops to this laptop and we think the Asus GL771JW, and the MSI GP70 Leopard which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a portable PC with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the MSI GE62 Apache (12GB), the Asus G751JL (12GB), or the Lenovo Y50 (£995.06) (16GB) which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity laptops currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus G771JM, or the MSI GP70 Leopard.

If this laptop total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Asus G751JL (1.1TB) which also has a higher rating.

Average Weight

At 2.7 kilograms, the MSI GP70 has a pretty typical weight compared to most of the other laptops of this type and age.

We compared all the other 2.7kg heavy notebook PCs to this portable PC and we think the MSI GP70 Leopard which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the MSI GS30 2M (SSD), the Alienware 13 (SSD), or the Razer Blade (SSD) which also has a higher rating.
