Powered by an Intel Core i7 4700HQ processor, 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L memory, and a 2GB GeForce GTX 765M graphics card, the MSI GS70 aims to make high performance gaming on-the-go a hassle-free reality. Despite its easy-to-handle dimensions (for a large screen notebook), a 17.3″ 1920×1080 anti-reflective screen and 6 cell battery prove that the MSI GS70 gaming laptop doesn’t make size-related compromises when it comes to the end user’s gaming experience.

According to MSI’s promotional material, a brushed aluminium chassis which houses the GS70’s gaming components is inspired by Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft and indicates speed, aggression, and power. Dual fan thermal cooling keeps the system’s hardware chilled.
