MSI WT72 overview

  • 1Description

Take creativity and collaboration almost anywhere with the 17.3" WT72 Mobile Workstation from MSI. This system has been built with components that will help to reduce downtime and limit IT disruptions, while also providing greater reliability with built-in security and remote management capabilities. The system is powered by a 2.8 GHz Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5 Quad-Core processor which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The processor also features a burst speed of up to 3.7 GHz and the built-in 32GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.

The 17.3" IPS Wide View Angle Anti-Glare display has a native Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and is built on True Color technology. The system's display is powered by a dedicated NVIDIA Quadro M4000M graphics card and 4GB of GDDR5 RAM, and you can output video to an external display using its HDMI 1.4 or Mini DisplayPort outputs. Additionally, the system's Thunderbolt 3 port also supports the DisplayPort 1.2 output protocol. The WT72 will support up to three simultaneous external displays.

For long term storage of your files, the WT72 has a 128GB PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 SSD and a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive. The 128GB SSDs use NVMe technology and while it does not have the larger capacity of the 1TB hard drive, it contains no moving parts and is able to operate with faster data transfer speeds. Having no moving parts also helps the SSD be better-protected against damage from drops and bumps. Additionally, the drive will receive less wear and tear, as there are no read or write heads for the drive media to come into contact with. All in all, this system has 1.128TB of storage.

If you want to add external storage drives, external optical drives, media card readers, or other external peripherals, the WT72 features six USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one USB 3.1 Type-C port. The system also has a SuperMulti DVD Burner, 3-in-1 SD card reader that supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a 1080p webcam, an integrated mic, and dual integrated 3W speakers with a subwoofer, both powered by Nahimic audio.

So you can get started right out of the box, a 230W AC adapter and a power cord are included. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

It also keeps your system in check by preventing stability issues, extending memory life, making troubleshooting easier, and reducing any down time

    Windows 10 Pro

    Start Menu
    After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items
    Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills
    Microsoft Edge
    After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser
    Windows Store
    For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically
    Windows Continuum
    Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well
    Xbox on Windows 10
    Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift
    Windows 10 Pro
    The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications
