MSI has just announced their latest gaming notebook in the GS70. This 17-inch gaming notebook is actually quite thin and light! It measures less than 2.18 centimeters thick making it the industries thinnest 17-inch gaming notebook powerhouse. It weighs in at only 2.65 kilograms which means it is lighter than most 15.6-inch notebooks out there.
So what is inside? Of course you are going to have options for the latest Intel Core Haswell processors, but your graphics will be powered by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M discrete graphics card equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory. The GS70 packs a full HD 17.3-inch display and has a long lasting battery, which should give you four hours of video. As far as audio goes you have 2.1 channel surround sound that rivals most home entertainment systems.
Two things that really stand out about the GS70 is the actual chassis of the unit and its keyboard. The entire notebook chassis is fashioned of an aluminum-magnesium alloy giving this ultra-powerful gaming notebook a sleek, premium feel. The keyboard is a SteelSeries full color programmable backlit keyboard, which not only looks good, but is great for gaming.
