Featuring a NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, you can dive into even the most visually punishing titles and enjoy them to their fullest with no lag or slowdown. Enjoy clearer, crisper Full HD picture that will bring all your favourites to life.

Next level audio immersion

Whether it's Final Fantasy, Call of Duty or Minecraft that you fancy, get ready to be sucked in to all the biggest games. Nahimic 3 enhances in-game 3D surround sound, and gives you more refined control over your music, movie audio and call sound with the intuitive user interface.

The MSI audio boost improves sound detail, and the gold plated audio jack helps your headphones or headset to reproduce every sound in perfect detail. Hear an air-raid a crucial few seconds earlier, or detect an enemy approaching you from behind. You'll be ready for everything.

Game at full throttle

With Cooler Boost 4 technology, overheating worries will be long forgotten. With dedicated heat pipes for the GPU and CPU, you can game harder than ever while your components stay completely cool.

For those extra-long sessions, the MSI Gaming Laptop has a fan boost button that effectively pushes heat out of the system. It's a cooling system that can keep going as long as you can.

Play like a professional

With an RGB backlit keyboard, the GF72 Gaming Laptop doesn't compromise on looks.

Designed for professional gamers, it's got better responsiveness, tactile feedback and supports anti-ghosting for up to 45 keys. You'll have everything you need to triumph.

Microsoft Office & internet security

This PC doesn't come with a full version of Microsoft Office or Internet Security. But don't worry, you'll find great savings on software with the bundles available on the ‘Top Deals' tab on this page.

Bristol GB Music, gaming or video fan
This is my first gaming laptop, so I have nothing to compare it to really, but I'm very happy with it. It seems to be able to handle everything I want from it, it looks good and the price won't break the bank.
It runs very hot when gaming.
