When is a notebook more than a notebook? In the case of the Gaming Series GT70 OND 17.3" Notebook Computer it stops being a mere notebook when it has such superior gaming features that it makes dedicated gaming systems seem weak by comparison. The GT70 OND jumps light years ahead of standard notebooks with a 2.4GHz Intel Core i7-3630QM processor, 16GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM, and a dual drive system - a 750GB hard drive with a super fast 7200 rpm speed, and a 128GB solid state drive for fast access and instant ready-on states. The latency and lag in gaming is reduced to near zero when gaming from an SSD.

But the fun doesn't stop there. This gaming notebook also includes a 17.3" widescreen backlit LED display with a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and a 16:9 cinematic widescreen aspect ratio. The antiglare LCD panel is enhanced by the powerful nVIDIA GeForce GTX675MX card with 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM. As if that weren't enough for your multimedia entertainment, the notebook also includes a Blu-ray disc player and HDMI out connections so that you can experience your digital media on an even larger screen if you prefer. It's also WiDi capable, so that you can wirelessly stream your media to any WiDi enabled device.

To make sure you know that MSI is serious about marketing this towards gamers, it includes two game-worthy mentions. The SteelSeries 102-key backlit keyboard is designed specifically for gamers, with special "triangle" spacing for WASD key setups (gamers use the WASD keys to move around in some games; others prefer the arrow keys). The other is the Killer E2200 Intelligent Networking game network. The key here is game prioritizing - every gamer knows that game stuttering, freezing and lag is usually caused by poor network performance. MSI's Killer Network defines game data as the first priority and pushes ahead data to accelerate the gaming experience.

Another aspect of gaming that gamers qualify as critical is the audio. The GT70 OND boosts the audio by using gold flash audio jacks to provide a better transmission quality, and AMP (Audio Power Amplifier) design for enhanced headphone performance. Sound by Dynaudio provides the best sound to your sensitive gamers' ears.

It seems almost anticlimactic to describe the other features, which we've come to expect from high-end notebooks. VGA out, USB 3.0/2.0 ports, a media card reader that supports SD/SDHC/SDXC/ XD/MSPRO/MS and MMC (with support for SD 3.0), integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and a hardwired Gigabit Ethernet jack are all included.

Is there a gamer in your universe that deserves the ultimate in mobile gaming rigs? If there is, or if you fit that bill, you're going to want to check out the MSI GT70 OND. It may not make you a better gamer, but it will enhance your gaming experience.

Priority Online Gaming Leads the Way
The GT70 represents the first time that MSI has incorporated Killer Gaming Networking - Killer E2200 Intelligent Networking into its notebooks, endowing them with superior online speeds. The Advanced Game Detect technology recognizes online game data packs and processes them first, accelerating them in the process. The best weapon against stuttering characters, freeze-ups, and lagging, it vastly improves the prowess of online gamers. Now, whether FPS or MMO gaming is your cup of tea, you'll have that extra edge you need to be victorious.
Audio Boost
The MSI Audio Boost design enhances sound output by 30%. The gold flash audio jack provides stable sound transmission (reduced obstruction) and works in conjunction with the optimized AMP (Audio Power Amplifier) design, characterized by low noise and low distortion, to greatly enhance headphone performance and faithfully reproduce each acoustic detail.
A Keyboard Made Just for Gamers
Exclusive keyboard position and golden triangle (WASD movement keys) layout offers faster and longer-lasting keyboard action. MSI has improved the resilience and tactile feedback of each and every key. MSI's gaming keyboard supports simultaneous pressing of multi keys, allowing users to issue commands rapidly and respond to games with precision.
Full Color Backlight LED Management
Depending on your mood and desires, you can choose from more than 1,000 color combinations and five different scenario modes for the keyboard, enabling you to be the coolest gamer at any LAN party!
With extreme Hi Res performance, the NVIDIA GTX675M discrete graphics card (with GDDR5 4GB VRAM) outperforms other cards. Based on DirectX11 technology, dynamic tessellation extends new triangles and textures for creating more detailed images.

    Comments about MSI Gaming Series GT70 OND 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

    Bought this because I do a little 3D in my spare time as well as play a couple of games. Came very well packed, and with in a couple of days. So far it does a great job. fast and Quite, keyboard feels good and has a nice clicky feel to it too. Wish they had a windows 7 version too because so far I've not been impressed with windows 8. But I suppose it takes some getting use to.
