Review Update MSI GT70 2OC-065US Notebook


MSI Power. The extensive GT family includes some of the most powe

Excellent gaming performance; Extensive maintenance options; Large number of interfaces; Backlit keyboard; Brushed aluminum chassis

Slow 5400 RPM HDD; Cannot sustain maximum Turbo Boost under stress; Must break warranty seal to access RAM, HDD, GPU, CPU or other internal components

Very good value for gamers who don't intend to use the GT70 for work applications. Otherwise, an SSD upgrade (or at least a faster 7200 RPM HDD) is highly recommended.

Review MSI CX70-i789BW7H Notebook


Hothead. MSI presents the CX70, a 17 inch multimedia notebook bas

USB 3.0; Up-to-date processor technology; Blu-ray drive; Fewer high-gloss surfaces (than GE70); Good gaming performance; Good application performance; Matte screen

Gets extremely hot; Processor throttles; Shuts off under extreme load; No Full HD screen; Poor contrast

If you prefer owning an SSD rather than a hard disk, you should take a closer look at Acer's Aspire V3-771G. The same processor, same graphics and more RAM are other features of the EUR 1299 notebook. Other interesting devices are Samsung's...

MSI GT70 0NE-276US


Gaming laptops are not known for their subtle design. Within and without, they're big, ostentatious systems, and the MSI GT70 0NE-276US ($2,599.99 Direct) is no exception. Its hulking chassis is packed to the gills with features, like a multicolor...

Blazing fast performance. Full color programmable backlit keyboard. Blu-ray burner

Bulky. Expensive. Subpar battery life, even for a gaming laptop

With its impressive specs, slew of nifty features, and overall cool design, the MSI GT70 0NE-276US is a fine choice for a gaming laptop, but better choices are out there.

The MSI GT70 combines a quad-core processor, Nvidia GTX GPU, a massive amount of storage and customizable backlit keyboard to achieve gaming nirvana.

MSI GT70 0NE-276US


Every gamer wants speedy frame rates, but not everybody has the kind of cash needed to buy a laptop that will actually deliver the goods with the toughest games at the highest resolutions and detail settings. A super-awesome, overclocked-CPU, dual-GPU...

Speedy performance ; Gorgeous display ; Robust feature set

Pricey ; Heavy ; Short battery life

The MSI GT70 0NE-276US delivers the fast frame rates that gamers crave and is jam-packed with cool features and high-end components. However, you don't get much battery life from this bulky 17-inch gamer.

The MSI GT70 ONE is your best bet when you upgrade your portable gaming system. This notebook has 12GB of RAM, a GeForce GTX 680M graphics card with 4GB of video memory and the newest generation of Intel processors. All of this hardware comes together...

The MSI GT70 gaming laptop runs 12GB of RAM and has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M video card

The company's customer support center needs some work

This laptop is not only powerful, but lightweight as well. The graphics card and top-tier display give it a hefty price tag, but only because it is one of the best gaming devices out there.

MSI GT70 0NE Review


In our midst, a fully fledged gaming notebook with Intel Ivy Bridge, NVIDIA GTX 680M, 16GB DDR3 and SATA 3 SSD (RAID0). Can it get any better than this?

Robust, good quality ; High-end specifications ; Large, crystal clear screen ; Superior Dynaudio system ; Long battery life

Cost ; Heavy

GT70 is a certified powerhouse, of that there is no doubt. High-end gaming meets the notebook form factor rather aggressively.

MSI GT70 2OC-065US


I'd give this an extra egg if I didn't have to remember to turn on the noisy "turbo" fan before playing games. Maybe mine just didn't get sufficient thermal application?

Plays most games at high settings. Nice keyboard. Nice sound. Great screen. Well built and looks good

Completely worthless track pad. Overheats easily during games without the "turbo" fan going, which is super loud! Came with a bad driver/software disk. The warranty sticker on the bottom, the one that says "void if tampered", was already broken

I would totally suggest this laptop and the MSI brand. Bought a laptop over 5 or 6 years back, and it still runs well. Bought the GT70 for myself almost a year back and am loving it. Makes travel bearable

Extremely well built, not loaded with crapware. Very fast and way more affordable than any rival (alienware, Asus). Much faster than I expected. Keyboard is just amazing. Fan system keeps things nice and cool, but allows for "turbo" fan mode which...

Heavy and fat, but worth it. You should expect this when buying a gaming laptop

ot really a con but if you plan on overclocking,even a little bit, you will first need to change the has ddr3L which means its lower voltage usage meaning it will not overclock..messed with the settings and could not get any performance gains,...
