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.

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.
