To make sure that you know what kind of capability the MSI WT72 has, it is Autodesk VRED certified and compatible with existing VR systems, including Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Not only that, the audiophile-grade Dynaudio speakers that boast of Nahimic Audio enhancer will be thrown into the mix, in addition to True Color Technology screens with Adobe RGB certification for wide viewing angles and the most accurate visuals, and the new SteelSeries backlit keyboard with Silver-Lining Print to eliminate eye strain. There will be Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 connectors as well, and it sports a dual fan design for efficient heat dissipation. Any takers?
