MSI Has Good Reviews for Its Laptops

We calculated the average reviews for all MSI notebook PCs and also specifically for MSI gaming laptops and found that in both cases MSI had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

The processor frequencys of laptops that were launched around the same time as the GE62 2QF range from 1.7GHz to 2.9GHz, and the average processor frequency is 2.5GHz.

Other 2.6GHz processor clock speed notebook PCs currently available which you might also want to look at include the GE62[pl_2705191_price], or the GS70[pl_2575625_price] both from MSI or the Asus G751JY[plb_2877274_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a touchscreen to this portable PC and we think the Y70-70[pl_2665339_price], the Y50[pl_2681101_price], or the Y70-70[pl_2707541_price] all from Lenovo is also worth considering.
