Review MSI GT70H-80M4811B Notebook

 

Strong. MSI launches an updated version of the popular GT70 gaming laptop based on the brand new CPU and GPU generation. It spoils gamers with a quad-core from Intel's Haswell family and a high-end scion from Nvidia's GeForce 700 range. We snatched the...

Bright, high-contrast TN screen ; Extensive maintenance options ; Acceptable noise emissions ; Cool wrist rest ; Many interfaces ; Very good speakers ; Brushed aluminum ; Backlit keyboard ; Phenomenal performance ; Great battery runtime ; Three mSATA...

Very heavy and huge casing ; Suboptimal port distribution ; Debatable design components

In contrast to the Clevo contenders, the GT70 is fairly quiet

Review MSI GT70 Notebook

 

Expensive high-end fun. MSI sells a lavishly equipped gaming note

Matte, high-end Full HD screen; Numerous maintenance possibilities; Feasible battery life; Cool wrist rest; Aluminum surfaces; Two SSDs in RAID0; Illuminated keyboard; Very good performance; Graphics switching; BluRay burner; Great sound; 3x USB 3.0

Very audible in 3D use; CPU throttling in full load; Bulky and heavy

Expensive, 17 inch high-end models. How about the Alienware M17x, the Asus G75V, the Schenker XMG P702 PRO or the Samsung 7007A, for example?

MSI GT70 Review

 

The MSI GT70 delivers unique looks and high performance in a package that is slightly less expensive than the Alienware 17.

Fantastic performance ; Impressive speakers ; Cool red dragon design

Big, boxy, and heavy ; Average TN screen (IPS screen would have been better) ; Poor battery life

If you’re looking for a well-equipped 17-inch gaming notebook that delivers good bang for your bucks (all $2,699 of them) then the MSI GT70 deserves serious consideration.

MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Notebook Review: Haswell and the GTX 780M

 

You'll forgive me if deja vu is striking. This is the third time we've had a chance to test this chassis from MSI (the first being the iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-17 and the second being the CyberPower FangBook). Each time there's been an incremental...

Each time I've tested this chassis from MSI I've been a little less enamored with it. Finding a good gaming notebook isn't a trivial thing and there's a lot of room for innovation and improvement in this market segment, but it seems like only...

MSI GT70 One-609US Dragon Edition

 

The MSI GT70 One-609US Dragon Edition offers everything you might want, including quad-core processing, Nvidia graphics, and networking designed with online gaming in mind, at a price that isn't too astronomical.

Moderately price high-performance gaming. Intel quad-core processor and Nvidia graphics. Long lasting battery. Keyboard backlight adds customizable flair. Networking adapter optimized for online gaming

Keyboard layout is unnecessarily crowded

The MSI GT70 One-609US Dragon Edition is every inch a gamer's PC, from the goofy spelled out number in the model name to the coiled dragons emblazoned across the lid and palmrest. A rainbow of colors bursts from the keyboard backlight, and though it...

MSI GT70 review

 

MSI has a solid reputation in the gaming laptop space: its laptops are generally fairly powerful, heinous monstrosities that get the job done at a fair price. The MSI GT70 fits the mold quite nicely. While it isn't quite as garish as its forbears, it...

Great speakers ; Excellent keyboard and touchpad ; Sturdy build ; Strong performance

Lackluster display ; Design isn't very attractive ; A bit heavy ; Limited SSD storage space

A fair price for a solid PC
