MSI GS70 gaming laptop is thinnest and lightest yet

msi-gs70Gaming laptops tend to tread on thin ice, as they are normally large and bulky in order to accommodate the parts within which require more space than a “normal” working-class laptop. And as physics would dictate, the larger an object is, generally speaking, it would be heavier. Not only that, the performance that you are able to coax out of a gaming laptop would still fall short of your home’s souped up gaming rig most of the time. Well, MSI intends to turn things upside down with the introduction of the MSI GS70 gaming laptop.

For starters, the MSI GS70 gaming laptop is a definitely looker, coming in such a svelte body that you might mistake it for an Ultrabook of sorts. After all, we are talking about an ultra-thin and light brush aluminum chassis that measures less than an inch thin, tipping the scales at a respectable 5.7 lbs, clearly making this the thinnest and lightest 17” gaming laptop in the world. I guess MSI has succeeded in achieving the balance between portability and power on the go.

Just what kind of parts will you be able to find underneath the hood? For starters, the MSI GS70 would come with the latest 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor running proceedings from within, and it is accompanied by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M. You will also find a Killer DoubleShot NIC, a SteelSeries full color backlit keyboard with Anti-Ghosting keys, a 17” Full HD anti-reflective display at 1,920 × 1,080 resolution, a 2.1 speaker system with integrated sub-woofer featuring Sound Blaster Cinema, 16GB RAM, a quartet of USB 3.0 ports, a trio of audio jacks, and a 720p HD webcam.

Not only that, the MSI GS70 prides itself in being the first dual fan laptop with a special thermal solution design which will pull heat from the top side of the laptop, dissipating it instead at a 45 degree upward angle to deliver superior performance and a cool gaming experience even if you have cranked all the detail levels in the game to the maximum to work the MSI GS70. The asking price would start from $1,799.99, with two configurations to choose from.
