Review Update MSI GT70 2OC-065US Notebook


MSI Power. The extensive GT family includes some of the most powerful notebooks out there with plenty of configuration options. We take a closer look at the performance of the US model in our GT70 update review. ...

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
