The GE62 Apache-002 15.6" Notebook Computer from MSI is built with gaming and multimedia use in mind. The chassis features a bold design with a sleek aluminum black body kit and a laser film cover complemented by red accents.
The 15.6" eDP widescreen display features LED backlighting, which uses less power than CCFL backlighting. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution powered by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 discrete memory. The display can play Full HD 1080p content natively without upscaling. The screen also has an anti-reflective finish, which reduces glare in brightly lit environments.
The system is powered by a quad-core Haswell 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor. It also has 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM, a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, a 3-in-1 media card reader, Killer Gaming Network with 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated 720p HD webcam, and microphone. There are also built-in quad speakers. There is also an extra mSATA hard drive slot if you wish to upgrade in the future.
Windows 8.1 is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.
