Pro Excellent gaming performance
It goes without saying but the GTX 1070 handles most AAA games perfectly. Most games consistently hit 120+ FPS on high settings at 1080p. On ultra settings, most games average about 70+ FPS with the Witcher 3 for example reaching 82FPS.
Like other GPUs that use the NVidia Pascal architecture, the GTX 1070, and by extension the GT62 Dominator Pro also supports VR gaming.
Pro Great build quality
Most of the laptop is made of brushed black aluminium with some chrome highlights. Overall, this is a very sturdy and durable laptop.
Pro Excellent display
This laptop's display is beautiful. It reproduces 105.8% of the sRGB color gamut, beating the average of 91% for laptops at this price. The display is also extremely bright, averaging 301 nits, which means that you can easily take it and play outside during the day and the sun will not give you any trouble.
The laptop also comes with a special software from MSI which lets users adjust their screen colour temperature.
Pro Perfect cooling
Even under heavy use, the GT62 Dominator is cool enough to be kept safely and comfortably on your lap.
Pro Lots of storage space
Comes with 1 TB HDD and 256GB SSD.
Pro Excellent keyboard
This laptop's keyboard is the closest thing to a mechanical without it actually being a mechanical keyboard. Keys have a travel distance of 1.9mm and 66 grams of actuation force. It also goes without saying that the keyboard has a backlight that can be turned on and off.
Pro Excellent design
The GT62 Dominator manages to straddle the line between elegance and the bulkiness gaming laptops are known for perfectly. On the back it has a pair of glossy red strips embedded into the black, aluminium-brushed case.
The red accents on the all-black body are found throughout the laptop but without overdoing it, which helps giving this laptop a sleek look.
Con Rather heavy
At around 6.4 pounds, it falls on the heavy camp for laptops. Even for gaming ones.
Con The audio is not very loud
The speakers found in the GT62 Dominator Pro produce clear sound that's lacking in volume.
