World’s thinnest and lightest 17-inch gaming laptop features Intel Haswell processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX and dual fan thermal control
MSI introduced the GS70, which claims to be the world’s thinnest and lightest 17-inch gaming notebook PC in an ultra-thin and light brush aluminum chassis, measuring less than 1-inch thick and weighing only 5.7 lbs.
The MSI GS70 comes equipped with the latest 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, a 17″ Full HD anti-reflective display at a 1920×1080 resolution and a 2.1 speaker system with integrated sub-woofer featuring Sound Blaster Cinema capable of delivering the quality of 5.1 surround sound. It takes full advantage of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 765M capabilities with the Matrix Display that simultaneously supports up to 3 external displays via the HDMI and mDP ports, transforming it into the ultimate multimedia and multi-tasking desktop replacement. It also has the ability to output HDTV resolutions, up to 4k, for viewing your games or movies in true HD.
The GS70 is the first dual fan laptop with a unique thermal solution design that pulls heat from the top side of the laptop and dissipates heat at a 45 degree upward angle, guaranteeing superior performance and a cool gaming experience even under the most intense battle sessions.
Additional gaming features include a SteelSeries full color backlit keyboard with Anti-Ghosting keys, along with 16GB of DDR3L memory, 4 USB 3.0 ports, 3 audio jacks, and 720p HD webcam.
