Today, MSI unveiled the world's thinnest and lightest 17-inch portable gaming laptop. The GS70 is designed to accommodate the power needs of the most demanding gamer, while still maintaining extreme portability that is needed to take the next battle on the road. MSI says that the GS70 features a "lethal arsenal of cutting-edge components" that high-level gamers require to give them that extra edge over the competition.
The GS70 features Intel's latest 4th generation Core i7 4700HQ Haswell processor, 16GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB graphics processor. Storage is available in two configurations that includes a dual 128GB mSATA SSD setup in RAID 0 with a 1TB HDD for mass data storage. The second configuration includes a single 128GB SSD with a 750GB HDD for file storage. Measuring in at just 0.85 inches thick, the GS70 only weighs 5.7lbs thanks to its all aluminum chassis.
"The GS70 has the capability to crush the most demanding games and the featherlike portability for on-the-go multi-tasking or gaming," stated Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. "We understand the needs of our audience and are committed to delivering solutions that exceed even the highest expectations."
"The MSI GS70 sets a new mark for gaming rigs," said Brian Choi, Senior Product Manager at NVIDIA. "With the super-fast and super-efficient GeForce GTX 765M GPU on board, MSI is able to offer the thinnest chassis ever seen in the gaming segment."
Additionally, the laptop features a 17.3-inch full HD display, Killer E2200 Gaming NIC, a built-in headphone amplifier, four USB 3.0 ports, a 720p HD webcam, and a full color backlit gaming keyboard with anti-ghost keys from keyboard giant SteelSeries. MSI says that the dual-SSD version will retail for $1999.99, while the single-SSD version will cost consumers $1799.99
