MSI GT72 Dominator Pro, Can a laptop computer replace a desktop computer?

MSI is among the producers with the widest high-end gaming laptop catalog in the market. Their latest model, the MSI GT72 Dominator Pro, is impressive in every way (including price) so much so that the Taiwanese company considers it a replacement to gaming desktop computers and for every information, professional or consumer use.

MSI GT72 Dominator Pro The Dominator Pro has an aluminum chassis “completely redesigned to maximize performance and user experience” and produced in collaboration with ten professional teams from the gaming industry, says the Taiwanese company. It has a 17.3 inch screen with full HD resolution. It uses the most powerful Intel Haswell processor and the most powerful dedicated graphics card that you can mount in a laptop.

This is a configuration that will amaze any user, as seen in the high-end specifications:

  • Display: 17.3 inch
  • Resolution: 1920 × 1080 (16:9)
  • Chipset: Intel HM87
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4710HQ – 3.4 GHz 4X
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 8GB
  • RAM: 32 GB
  • Connectivity: Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi ac, HDMI 1.4, 6 USB 3.0, SD, webcam …
  • Weight: 4.5 kg
  • Battery: 9-cell
  • OS: Windows 64-bit Pro 8.1
  • Price: $ 2999

It includes a dedicated Killer E2200 network card, an obligatory component in a gaming laptop of this caliber. It also rules the entertainment realm with a Blu-Ray recorder, Sound Blaster Cinema 2 sound card and Dynaudio Premium speakers with subwoofer.

Its illuminated SteelSeries keyboard with programmable keys (one of the best you can find in a gaming laptop), its Cooler Boost 2 cooling design or the Matrix Display multi monitor support, are just a few of the other premium components that mark this machine’s level at the high-end level.

If what you are looking for is a light laptop then forget it, this computer weights 4.5 kg and it is not destined for mobility although you can take it anywhere. It has a battery of great capacity but we do not believe that it will last long when we push the most powerful mobile graphics card to its limits, and its eight thread processors to 3.4 GHz.

The price of the new high-end laptop of the company (3,000 USD) is only at the reach of someone with a big budget. There is a variant to this machine, with less memory, which costs about 2,600 USD. There are only a few concessions for this impressive desktop computer replacement.

MSI offers other more cheap and light gaming computers. The one that we like the most is the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro, which has high performance and a 2,880 x 1620 pixels screen with a 3K resolution and weights 19kg and is only 20 mm thick, not bad for its size of 15.6 inches and its gaming orientation although its cost is still up there with a 2,199 USD list price.
