MSI GT72 Dominator Pro

  |   by Ian Debevoise

The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro has all the necessary parts for an above average gaming laptop and an attractive design to go with it. The NVidia GeForce GTX 980M 8GB DDR5 can handle 4k video editing as well as the running the newest games on the highest settings and with four 125 GB SSDs the Dominator Pro runs incredibly fast, but a poor display doesn’t quite keep up with its competitors and its high end graphics card.
