MSI Announces GS70 Gaming Series Notebook

Who says that a top-of-the-line gaming notebook has to weigh a ton? Not MSI. Marvel at our newest feather-light GS70 Stealth gaming notebook. Measuring less than 2.18 centimeters thick, the GS70 is the industry's thinnest 17" gaming notebook powerhouse. At just 2.65 kilograms, the GS70 is even lighter than most 15.6" models, so you can conveniently take the action anywhere. With a big 17.3" Full HD monitor packed into a sleek 21.8 millimeters, this gaming platform is equipped with a long-lasting, high-capacity battery that can power nearly four hours of video.

We also beat the heat with our two channel cooling system design. Take your game on the road without worrying about your battery life or overheating. Now with that attention to detail, how could we possibly neglect the excitement of in-game video? The MSI GS70 Stealth, exclusively equipped with the newest Steelseries backlit keyboard, also features 2.1 channel surround sound that rivals most home entertainment systems. Even when wearing headphones, you can enjoy awesome 5.1 channel audio. Gamers are bound to appreciate the bright colorful visuals and booming audio experience exclusively available on the GS70 Stealth.

Our Matrix Display multiple display output technology means gamers don't have to fight the battle alone. In the past, one screen meant just one view of the action or tedious toggling between screens. Not only did it waste time, it was hard to see the big picture. With just one GS70 Stealth gaming notebook you can control several screens or enable more than one person to get in on the action and share in the spoils of victory.

It might be the thinnest gaming laptop out there but its 17.3" screen makes it a total dinner tray and that really detracts from its portability even though its only 21.8mm thick.

Long story short, its 17.3" making it thinner is pointless. It might be lighter but not as compact which makes it harder to put in backpack unless you have one thats specially designed to carry laptops of that size.

Its not an ultrabook, its a dinner tray

You kidding me? I got a Toshiba 14" that can cook eggs if the pan was over the heat sink.
