From the MSI website:
Dedicated to customer-driven innovation, MSI leverages its remarkable R&D strengths to craft top-notch, well-acclaimed motherboards, graphics cards, notebook PCs and All-in-One PCs. The Overclocking Series is designed for enthusiasts who pursue extreme performance and go after world records. Aimed at fulfilling the needs and expectations toward professional gaming, the MSI GAMING Series receives gamers' unanimous acclaim. Incorporating Military Class components, the Classic Series has an excellent reputation for quality and durability. All these distinctive products have made MSI a forerunner in the middle-range and high-end market. Also adding to the lineup are cloud servers, tailor-made IPCs, intelligent panoramic camera (Panocam), robotic appliances and human-centric vehicle electronics that further demonstrate MSI's strengths and endeavors in consumer, commercial and IOT (Internet of Things) markets.

MSI, now a powerhouse in the world of computing devices, was formed all the way back in 1986. Since then, the company has managed to expand into nearly every sector of the market. Fueling that rise was the nearly unrivaled attention to brand identity and marketing. This well-executed campaign in regards to products, marketing, and careful expansion has paved the way for their rise as a leading manufacturer. Graphics cards, motherboards, laptops, all-in-one systems, fully featured desktops, even CPU coolers and fans: all these products tie into the MSI and MSI Gaming brands. With such a solid core to build around, it's no wonder MSI continues to be an absurdly popular brand in today's crowded PC enthusiast market.

Today, I will be looking at their MSI GS63VR 7RF Raider 213 laptop. This 15.6" model features an Intel Kabylake Core i7-7700HQ quad core for number crunching and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 for gaming. When it comes to the screen, it's a 1080p TN panel with a 3 ms response time and 120Hz refresh rate. Overall, this laptop from MSI has some seriously nice specifications for just $1699.
