The MSI GL62 offers great gaming performance at a lower price point. The 6th generation Skylake i5-6200HQ processor offers great performance, while the Samsung DDR4 RAM runs up to 30% faster than its predecessors. The 8GB of RAM will run most software and games, and it can cheaply and easily be upgraded to 16GB as only one slot is in use. While the hard drive offers enough space for modern gaming and usage, the slower hard drive speed does hurt its overall performance. Upgrading the hard drive and RAM requires the removal of the entire bottom cover, which is easily done and worth the extra bit of effort. As a bonus, MSI allows for an m.2 SSD to be installed alongside the standard 2.5-inch drive.
