The GT72 features a dual-fan cooling system and an updated chassis based on MSI’s GS (“Stealth”) line. The dual-fan cooling system should provide superior cooling compared to the single-fan solution in the GT70, while the updated chassis should improve durability and overall rigidity / feel.
Another notable feature that’s difficult to notice until using the laptop is its larger trackpad. The inclusion of a larger trackpad is significant, seeing as the smaller trackpad of the GT70 can sometimes be frustrating. Both versions include an 880M GPU and i7-4170HQ, so despite being mobile, the laptop will smoke most games. The only differences between the GT72-007 and -010 models are that the 007 model features 32GB of RAM and 4x128GB SSDs in RAID 0, whereas the -010 model has 24GB of RAM and 2x128GB SSDs in RAID 0. The MSRP for the GT72 Dominator Pro 007 is $3000; the -010 sits at $2600. Overall, the GT72 is a minor update / refresh from the GT70, mostly with an improved chassis and cooling system, but is certainly a welcome update from MSI.
