MSI which stands for “Micro-Star International” is a technology company in the production of high-performing laptop and desktop computers. The MSI GL62M 7RD is a testament to this company’s great vision.

An oddly named gaming laptop you’d say. But when you look beyond the name and go deep into its internals, you’ll begin to take this device seriously. This device is a clear example of “don’t judge a book by its NAME”.


With dimensions of 388 x 260 x 30 mm and a weight of 2.2570 kg, this laptop is fairly light when compared with the Lenovo Legion R720 and Dell Inspiron 15 7577 laptops.

The bezels on this device are pretty large, and there’s a 720p webcam above the display for capturing photos and photo chats.


Next is the display. As with most gaming laptops, the MSI GL62M 7RD comes with a 15-inch Full HD display.

Keyboard and Touchpad

Moving on, just as with most other gaming laptops, the keyboard on this laptop comes with backlighting. The trackpad is a fairly large one that is also accurate.


Running the show for the MSI GL62M 7RD is the Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core CPU clocked at 2.8GHz. This processor is paired with a Nvidia GeForce GTX1050 GPU (with 2GB RAM). There is 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, and a secondary 1TB HDD.

The above combination makes it easy for this gaming laptop to run most of the top modern games available.

Battery Life

The MSI GL62M 7RD has a rather disappointing battery life as it can go for a maximum of about 5 hours on battery. To worsen the situation, it takes about 3 to 4 hours to fully charge the 3834mAh battery.

Connectivity Options

There’s a single USB type-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, and one USB 2.0 port. A microSD card slot, headphone jack, mini HDMI slot, and Ethernet port are all included in the package.


Furthermore, the MSI GL62M 7RD gaming laptop is reasonably priced at $900 and is available at leading e-stores worldwide.

The MSI GL62M 7RD is a wonderful gaming laptop from a not-so-popular manufacturer. However, this laptop shouldn’t be underrated or overlooked simply because of its name. With a powerful and energy efficient processor complemented by a good GPU, this device is only bedeviled by its subpar battery life.
