  • 1Description

Powered by an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 128GB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card, the 17.3" GP72MX Leopard Pro Notebook from MSI provides you with efficient multitasking, quick access to files and programs, and high-quality gaming visuals. Each of the four cores in the Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor operates between 2.8 and 3.8 GHz speeds, utilizing Intel Turbo Boost technology. When compared to the previous version of the Leopard Pro GP72 series, this model comes with a 3ms panel and a USB 3.1 Type-C port with 10 Gb/s speeds.

MSI has outfitted the GP72MX Leopard Pro with a 17.3" display that features a 120 Hz panel, which allows for smoother animations, making it suitable for watching sports or playing fast-paced first-person shooter games. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card with 4GB of GDDR5 memory delivers a 1920 x 1080 resolution to the 17.3" display and can offer higher resolutions by connecting a compatible monitor to the notebook's mini DisplayPort and HDMI ports. To complete the multimedia experience, four speakers are on board and powered with Nahimic 2 virtual surround sound technology.

In addition to the 128GB M.2 NVMe SSD, the GP72MX Leopard Pro has a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, which grants you ample space for storing videos, photos, and more. Aside from storage, the notebook sports one USB 2.0 port as well as two USB 3.0 ports to access printers, thumb drives, and other external peripherals. Other integrated features include a pair of audio jacks, SDXC media card reader, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, Gigabit Ethernet port, and 1080p webcam. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-Bit).

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.

    MSI Leopard Pro reviews

    17.3" GP72MX Leopard Pro Notebook is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Computer, but Too Buggy I bought this computer for photo editing, because my old laptop could not handle RAW photos from my Nikon d810, it's too much hassle for me to use a desktop computer, and I don't want to shell out the money for a Macbook (plus, I can't get a Macbook with a 17" screen). I liked the screen real estate on this laptop.� Also, from what I read before purchasing, MSi is good for accurate color on their monitors, and the 120HZ refresh rate was appealing because I watch a lot of movies on my laptop (I travel a lot).� On all of those promises, this computer delivers.� My only complaint (beyond the bugs described below) is that I wish the monitor could be a bit brighter. Here is my main issue (other than the fact that I HATE Windows 10, but that is beyond the control of this computer):� About 40-50% of the time that I use this computer, it won't charge.� When it's powered off, the charging light does not come on when it's charging.� When it's powered on, it says, "Plugged in/not charging."� So, it recognizes that it's plugged in.� I've tried calibrating the battery twice (using the app on the laptop), but it hasn't helped.� It could be an issue with the battery, or could be an issue with the charger.� For $1,200, I shouldn't have to figure that out.� Also, to even send an e-mail to MSi technical support, I need to give them tons of information about myself and my computer before they'll allow me to even to contact them.� I haven't bothered to do that yet. Then, last night, the computer went to sleep as I was trying to move some files (because it wasn't charging again).� When it woke up, the keyboard would not work.� I had to plug in an external keyboard to type in my password and restart it. The computer is about a month old, and I really haven't used it much since I bought it (been busy prepping for a move), and it's already having bugs with the battery and with the keyboard, and it's a $1200 computer.� I've never owned an MSi computer before, but this makes me nervous that there will be more issues in the future, as I use it more.� I plan on contacting B and H to see if I can return this one, .� The question is, do I gamble on another model from the same company, or do I switch brands?
