The aluminum gray GS70 StealthPro-024 17.3" Notebook Computer from MSI measures in at 0.85" thin and weighs just 5.73 pounds, which is impressive for a fully-loaded 17.3" notebook computer. The MSI GS70 features a simple yet streamlined aluminum chassis with a gray finish.

The 17.3" widescreen display features LED backlighting, which uses less power than CCFL backlighting. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution powered by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M graphics card with 3GB of discrete memory. The display can play Full HD 1080p content natively without upscaling. The screen also has an anti-reflective finish, which reduces glare in brightly lit environments.

The system is powered by a 4th generation Haswell quad-core 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor. It also has 16GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM, a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive and a 128GB solid state drive, a multi-format media card reader, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in Dynaudio Tech stereo speakers and a subwoofer.

Windows 8.1 is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

Quad-Core Haswell Intel Core i7 Performance
This MSI notebook houses a 4th generation Haswell Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor. Its quad cores have a stock speed of 2.4 GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.4 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. With a dedicated 6MB L3 cache, 16GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to game as well as multitask smoothly and efficiently.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M Graphics

The result is reliable performance, power efficiency and high image quality.
Full HD 17.3" Anti-Reflective Display
The 17.3" display has an anti-reflective screen designed to cut down on the amount of light that reflects off the display, reducing eyestrain and sharpening the picture to provide a more enjoyable viewing experience. The display also has a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution so you can play 1080p HD content natively in deep black levels and vibrant color.
Killer Gaming Network
For an online multiplayer, the slightest bit of lag will throw off your game. That's why this MSI GS70 has a 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack to ensure you have the support for a fast-wired Internet connection. With Killer Gaming Network, the MSI GS70 automatically classifies and prioritizes latency-sensitive network traffic for online games, HD video and high-quality audio for better control and fewer buffering interruptions during your online experience. If you're going mobile, the GS70 also supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi for high-speed wireless online gaming. There is also Bluetooth 4.0 support so you can connect a Bluetooth-compliant mouse or gamepad wirelessly to your MSI GS70.

Windows 8.1

The Return of the Start Button
After many requests from Windows users, the Start button makes its triumphant return in Windows 8.1. While it may not be exactly the same as its predecessor in Windows 7, the Start button has two core functions. A left click on the Start button will take you to the Windows 8.1 Start screen featuring live tiles. A right click on the Start button brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control, Network options and more.
Boot Directly to the Desktop
Windows 8.1 gives you the choice of booting to the Windows 8.1 Start screen with live tiles or booting to the familiar desktop screen of Windows 7. Users can also boot directly into an app or app view if they choose to.
To the Cloud
With Windows 8.1, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history, and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and more.
Windows Store
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is all about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it, so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it.

            Comments about MSI GS70 StealthPro-024 17.3" Notebook Computer (Aluminum Gray):

            I just got this computer, and I must say that I am impressed. It was made for gamers and therefore boasts solid specs. As for the make, it's all aluminum. It's light yet solid. I don't play games that much but I needed a powerful and light laptop for video editing and sfx processing. I've always had laptops because I like to use my computer everywhere, and I finally decided my dual core needed a well-deserved retirement. It was about time. The GS70 StealthPro-024 fits the bill.

            I will upgrade the memory when I have processor-intensive jobs (i.e. 4K footage) later. As for now, this computer's specs are more than what I need to get work done. It's also, I think, a reasonable price for what you get. I'm sure that a future upgrade will unleash its full power.

            Like any souped-up gaming laptop, it can run hot but MSI's dual fan-cooling system is smart (sorry if I sound like the marketing brochure). I'm planning to upgrade the 7200rpm hard drive to an ssd at some point (less fan work, better battery life, etc.)

            Overall, I am fully satisfied with this laptop, and I'm glad that I didn't get a Razor (which is very good but much pricier; it looked too gimmicky). I also got this laptop because I wanted a portable powerhouse and not a huge brick of hardware (i.e. Alien line, Asus or the MSI Dominator).

            I expect that next year's model will have a touch screen. Maybe MSI didn't want to go that way because it would have increased the price tag. As in any new computer out there, it comes with bloatware.

              But the price is little higher than average.

              Bought this for my son who is a gaming programmer. He was blown away at the speed this laptop ran. Threw the most resource intense game at it and it ran flawlessly! He hasn't turned on his desktop since owning this laptop. Compared to the competition IT IS the best bang for the buck and then some. Does run a little hot on the dual exhaust ports on both sides. Not a problem though. You can't have power without a little heat!

                The GS70 is an excellent laptop with tons of power and can run any current game on max settings while still running at least 30 fps. Very fast loading at start-up and when opening up programs. The weight is the best feature of this gaming laptop. I travel a lot and enjoy gaming so this laptop goes everywhere with me and going from a 9.7 lbs 17" laptop to this 5.7 lbs one makes a huge difference. Highly recommended for the gamer that wants a lightweight gaming laptop with top performance. I will say the big reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it does run really hot unless utilizing a cooling pad and it is very loud when the NVIDIA graphics card kicks in.

                Pros:
                Fast, faster than anything I have seen, Great display, easy to customize. Very quiet. The SSD allows a very fast launch of Excel, WoW, Elder scrolls Online. Really nice sound.
                Cons:
                No Optical drive, The power connection is on the right side, not the back, Interferes if you try to use on a small table. I would have preferred the left side.

                I would recommend to anyone who wants a gaming laptop

                  Great gaming laptop. Will play anything that you throw at it. Multiple display ports are great for multi-monitor setup. MSI has the windows 7 drivers so you do not have to use windows 8 which was a huge factor. 2 other guys in the office have one and swear by it. You can not go wrong with MSI.

                    This thing is blazingly fast with options galore. What they pack in a chasis this thin is amazing. The only gripes are that it only came with Windows 8 drivers (7 is still predominant) and the rubber feet are very obtrusive (great for sitting on a desk to cool but a PITA to stick the laptop in a laptop bag since they snag every time). B&H had a great price with good shipping and were a pleaseure to work with.

                    Solid feel, runs Far Cry 3 full blast, looks great, thin and light. Keys feel a bit small. Star off for bloat ware and win 8.1. Terrible on install. Can't tell bloat ware from windows.
