Bottom Line

The MSI GT62VR Dominator Pro-238 offers the latest hardware for the hardcore gamer, however the smaller 256GB SSD will fill up quite quickly with the latest AAA gaming titles.

The MSI GT62VR Dominator Pro-238 is a bestselling 2017 gaming laptop from MSI that has been praised for its VR support, G-SYNC display, fast seventh generation Intel processor, dedicated 10-series NVIDIA graphics and for its aggressive gaming looks. However, the 256GB SSD is slightly too small for newer games such as Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2. Luckily, you can easily upgrade to a larger M.2 solid state drive that will offer far more storage space for those larger games. While it is designed to be portable, the battery life is poor, which is no surprise with the powerful hardware.
