MSI announces ultra-thin GS70 gaming laptop
When it comes to gaming laptops, the era of two-inch-thick, weighty monstrosities is truly over. Systems such as Razer's Blade and Blade Pro have carved out a decidedly more pleasing form-factor for the category, and with the GS70, MSI is ready to stake its claim at the top of the market. The new system is particularly thin for its category and packs some high-end hardware within its svelte body.
The GS70 is aimed firmly at the top end of the market. It starts at US$1799.99, comes in at 0.85-inches (2.15 cm) thick and weighs 5.73 lb (2.6 kg). Running Windows 8, the system boasts some impressive internals including an Intel Haswell Core i7-4700HQ processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2 GB GPU and 16 GB of DDR3L 1600MHz RAM.
