Get the best of both worlds with the 13.3" GS32 Shadow Notebook from MSI. By itself, this notebook is lightweight and portable, ideal for use on-the-go, yet capable of handling games at acceptable graphical settings. When paired with the included Gaming Dock Mini, you'll be able to enjoy games how they were meant to be played with maxed out graphics on a large external display for full immersive entertainment.

Powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor and 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, the GS32 Shadow offers efficient multitasking performance and quick load times for your frequently used files and programs. When it's crunch time and you need more performance, the CPU can reach up to 3.1 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. Its 13.3" 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS display is driven by a NVIDIA GeForce GTX950M graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 that offers efficient performance for daily tasks and light gaming. In order to fully unlock its gaming potential, you'll need to dock it on the Gaming Dock Mini, which requires a separate desktop-sized graphics card. You'll be able to connect an external display using its HDMI port, or via the ports on your graphics card.

For storage, the GS32 Shadow has a 256GB PCIe SSD which is constructed without any moving parts that allows it to endure more and perform faster than a traditional hard drive. Furthermore, its PCIe interface allows it to run up to three times faster than an SSD connected via SATA 3. If you need more room, you can connect additional external storage devices using its two USB 3.0 ports. An SD media card reader can also be used for increased storage capacity as well as for quickly transferring files between your mobile devices.

Connect to the Internet using the Killer 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi or the Killer Gigabit Ethernet port found on the Gaming Dock. Dual-Band Wi-Fi enables you to access the 5 GHz band for faster speeds. If you run out of USB ports you can pair additional compatible peripherals using Bluetooth 4.1 technology. Other integrated features include a microphone jack, a headphone jack, a white backlit keyboard, a webcam, a microphone, and speakers. The pre-installed operating system in this notebook is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
