When it comes to battery life, the GE73 doesn't quite escape the gravity of the usual pitfalls found in gaming laptops. Without a nearby power source, you’ll only really get between 1 and 2 hours of use. As a rule of thumb, this is usually last just long enough for you to play a quick game of Overwatch but not long enough to really sink any significant amount of time into anything.
The Bottom Line
MSI GE73 VR Raider is a solid package, particularly if you’re behind the curve and looking to catch up. It’s got great specs and all the bells and whistles you want out of a gaming laptop. All told, it can run pretty much everything out at the moment without breaking too much of a sweat.
The GE73 VR Raider doesn’t really break away from the usual MSI formula but when the results are as good as they are, it’s hard to complain.
