MSI GT70 2OC Gaming Notebook

Rating: 9.0.

Today we look at the latest high powered 17 inch gaming laptop from MSI, the GT70 2OC. Performance certainly won’t be a concern as the machine is equipped with an 8 thread Intel Core i7 processor and a 3GB Nvidia GTX770M discrete graphics card. MSI have also included a fast 120G8 GB solid state boot drive, paired up with a 1TB hard drive to handle storage duties.

KitGuru has analysed quite a few MSI laptop systems over the last year. We weren’t so keen on the GE40-2OC ‘Dragon Eyes’ as our sample was sluggish with no solid state drive, but the GS70 2OD Stealth was a return to form for MSI and one of the best portable systems we have reviewed all year.

So, how does the MSI GT70 2OC shape up?
