EXcaliberPC's Buyer Comparison Guide (Essentials at a glance)
MSI GS70 is the new ultra-portable performance gaming system in a full aluminum chassis that comes dangerously close to Ultrabook territory, but still manages to squeeze in a 17-inch full HD matte display and NVIDIA GTX 765M graphics. MSI GS70 is powered by the latest 4th generation Intel Core i7-4700QM Processor (also known as Haswell) and 16GB of RAM. Thinner profile doesn't mean sacrifice in other performance areas, the GS70 carries all MSI's signature gaming features such as Steel Series full-color backlight gaming keyboard with anti-ghost key, Killer Gaming Network gaming-grade network card and Super RAID dual SSD plus HDD storage configurations.
