MSI GT70 gaming laptop review


MSI outs new GT60 / GT70 gaming laptops, we go hands-on (video)Everything old is new again: NVIDIA rebrands Fermi-based GPUs into 600-seriesIntel

Exceptional keyboard and trackpad ; Killer graphics ; Packs a speedy new Intel Ivy Bridge CPU ; Good battery life for a machine this size

Narrow viewing angles ; Fan can be exceedingly loud

One of the first Ivy Bridge machines to hit the market, the GT70 proves Intel's latest Core processors and NVIDIA graphics are a match made in gaming heaven.

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...

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

MSI GT70 Review: GTX 880M Edition


For better or for worse, MSI has had the same core designs for several of their high-end laptops for at least a couple years now, specifically we're talking about the GT60 and GT70 series (and with a few minor differences in features, the GX60/GX70 AMD...

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...

MSI GT70 Ivy Bridge Gaming Notebook Giveaway


Congrats to lebarle who won the MSI Z77A-GD65 from our last giveaway. As I hinted at last time however, if you didn't win or aren't in need of a new motherboard, MSI had something special planned for us: a quad-core Ivy Bridge notebook to give away.

MSI GT70 Review


The GT70 2OD-039US is MSI's most powerful gaming notebook to date. Is this "dragon" fierce enough to challenge the impressive Alienware 17? Keep reading to find out.

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.

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?
