MSI Unveils the GS30 Shadow Laptop and GamingDock

MSI, the leading gaming computer innovator and maker, now presenting the 13.3 inch gaming notebook - GS30 Shadow, which packs the latest Intel 4th Gen Core i7 and Iris Pro graphics. The ultra thin GS30 Shadow is no wonder the lightest gaming notebook in the field and it's only weighing 1.3 kg in 19.8 mm height. The amazing graphics powered by Intel Iris Pro is designed and targeted to majority of gaming titles and the performance is more than double while compared with previous generation. With support to DX11.1, OpenCL 1.2, OpenGL 4.0 and enhanced 4k x 2k, the GS30 Shadow sets the new benchmark for gaming notebooks and makes every user gaming everywhere.

Unleash the graphics power by Intel Iris Pro
Eric Kuo, vice president of global sales & marketing, MSI Notebook, pointed out that the latest GS30 Shadow is designed for mobile gamers who don't want to compromise between portability and performance. With its incredible thin and insanely powerful, MSI wants to create new style of this performance machine not only for gamers, but for some stylish and cutting edge fashion users.
Docking and transforming, shift into the Elysium!
There is a specific GamingDock designed for GS30 Shadow and the overall graphics performance will be shifted to a higher level while GS30 Shadow is docking on it. By the inserted desktop discrete graphics card inside the GamingDock, more graphics calculation will be enhanced and more visual detailed will be revealed. Users can choose any desktop graphics card, which is stronger and more powerful, then easily insert into it to unleash the most stunning visual effect and deliver the most exciting gaming experience to gamers by full bandwidth of PCI-e x16. The GamingDock is no wonder the most powerful upgraded cannon for slim gaming laptops to play on those most performance demanding titles in highest resolution and settings. The target launch time would be January 2015.

Wrong thread? This is a press release. Though this confusion could also be attributed with the 'early morning retard syndrome' :P Don't worry, I suffer from that too with 6am or earlier start times.
