With the 15.6" GT62VR Dominator Pro Notebook from MSI you'll be able to experience VR games and applications for a different level of computing. It's equipped with a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM, so you can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When handling a heavy workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. Its performance can be further upgraded by installing additional RAM modules into its two vacant slots, up to a max capacity of 64GB.

The 15.6" display is built with an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel, which provides you with wide viewing angles and vivid color reproduction. It also has a 1920 x 1080 native resolution for crisp and clear HD content. Furthermore, it features NVIDIA G-Sync technology, which syncs the display's refresh rate to the graphics card's frame rate output reducing tearing and stuttering for smoother gameplay. Driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM, this notebook will let you enable additional graphical options and crank up in-game visual settings so you can enjoy games at their best. The HDMI and Mini-DisplayPort can be used to connect external displays for more screen real-estate.

Keep your files and games stored in its 128GB M.2 SSD and 1TB 7200 rpm HDD. SSDs are constructed without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than the traditional hard drive. This will let you boot up and load applications and games in seconds. The hard drive won't be as fast, but its 1TB capacity makes it ideal for photos, videos, and other large files. Should you need more space, you can connect external storage devices using its multiple USB ports as well as its media card reader, which also lets you quickly transfer files from your mobile devices.

Access the Internet using 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet port for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Dual-Band Wi-Fi will give you access to the 5 GHz band that can provide you with much faster speeds. In case you run out of USB ports or would rather save them for other devices, you can pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Other integrated features include speakers, microphones, a subwoofer, a 1080p webcam, and a backlit keyboard so you can type in the dark. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

Windows 10

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.
