4K MSI gaming laptops: SA pricing, specifications

MSI 4K Laptop Header

Are you tired of gaming in 1080p? Is 2560 x 1440 making your eyes bleed with its chunky, block-like visuals? Then you need to go to the next level – 4K.

I say 4K, but it is actually 3840 x 2160, which the industry has accepted as good enough to be called 4K.

“But MyGaming,” we hear you cry, forlorn, and possibly a bit hungry, “4K screens cost more than my entire gaming rig!”

Fear not, for MSI has just sent its latest batch of 4K gaming laptops to our sunny shores.

Our friends over at Evetech recently listed the new device – the MSI GE62 2QE 4K – which comes in a range of prices depending on the hardware it is packing.
