    MSI rolled out its third mobile workstation after the GT series and WS series, the WT series. Styled much like MSI's Gaming series notebooks, the WT series comes in four models, the WT70-20K, the WT70-20L, the WT60-20K 3K IPS, and the WT60-20J. The WT70 duo feature 17.3-inch full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) displays, while the WT60 ones feature 15.6-inch displays. A stand-out here is the WT60-20K 3K IPS, which features a 15.6-inch 3K (2880 x 1620 pixels) IPS display. The WT60-20J, on the other hand, features full-HD. All four feature bodies that are clearly inspired from the Gaming series notebooks, featuring illuminated keyboards.

    All four models offer 4th generation Intel Core i7 "Haswell" processors, up to 32 GB (four DDR3 SO-DIMM slots) of memory, NVIDIA Quadro K3100M graphics with 4 GB memory on the WT70-20K and WT60-20K 3K IPS; Quadro K4100M graphics with 4 GB memory on the WT70-20L, and Quadro K2100M graphics with 2 GB memory on the WT60-20J. All four offer MSI SuperRAID SSD combinations of 3x 64 GB and 3x 128 GB, and storage HDD options of 750 GB and 1 TB. All four also offer Killer K2000 NIC (which can be used by Qualcomm drivers), and 802.11 ac WLAN. Measuring 428 x 288 x 55 mm (WxHxD), the WT70-20K and WT70-20L weigh 3.9 kg; the WT60-20K 3K IPS and WT60-20J measure 395 mm x 267mm x 55 mm, weighing 3.5 kg.

    Some interesting points, some truly horrid. Most horrid of all: Workstaion with lousy Killer NIC? You having a laugh my MSI friends. In the workstation world there is Intel and nothing else. These units won't be cheap, yet they decided to cut cost to hamper productivity. Not very wise.

    That's why desktops always will retain superiority over mobile market. You can fix - config-wise - what manufacturer screwed.

    looking at these fat cakes I had to double check the calendar to make sure I didn't magically travel back in time to 1996.

    You really don't want to dissipate 150W in a slim notebook. It never works out well.

    The Killer NIC is just a glorified Atheros design. Sounds like you can use Atheros drivers (aka Qualcomm). The Wifi is probably Atheros too.
