MSI GE40 2OC-009US

 

The MSI GE40 2OC-009US is a gaming ultrabook that delivers solid performance on the go, with a low price and a few flaws that can be overlooked.

Gaming ultrabook with slim portable design. Fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. Nvidia GeForce GTX760M graphics. Decent feature set. Solid battery life

Fast, very responsive. Extremely quick start times (near those of Microsoft surface pros) can easily handle most all games out there on high to medium high settings, which still looks great on a 1600x900 display. Laptop is thin and light, making it...

This thing gets hot. like really hot. like i would recommend a cooler pad if your gaming over a long period of time just to keep the temps down. Overclocking is not really an option until the stock cooling system is upgraded. It must just put out a lot...
