With the 17.3" GS73VR Stealth Pro Notebook from MSI, you'll be able to experience VR games and applications for a different level of computing. Powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM, the GS73VR Stealth Pro can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. When handling a demanding workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. To further improve this system's performance, you can upgrade its RAM capacity up to a max of 32GB by replacing the preinstalled RAM modules.

Its 17.3" display is built with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel that provides you with wide viewing angles and vivid color reproduction. The native 1920 x 1080 screen resolution can display crisp and clear Full HD content for your viewing pleasure. Furthermore, it has a 120 Hz refresh rate that allows for smoother animations making it ideal for watching sports and playing fast-paced first person shooter games. Driven by a dedicated desktop-class NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM, the GS73VR Stealth Pro will let you enable additional graphical options and crank up in-game visual settings so you can enjoy games at their best. By connecting external displays using its HDMI and Mini-DisplayPort, you can have more screen real-estate for enhanced multitasking.

Store your files and games within its 256GB M.2 SSD and 1TB 5400 rpm HDD. Since SSDs are constructed without any moving parts, they can perform faster and endure more than a traditional hard drive. This will let you boot up and load applications in seconds. On the other hand, the 1TB capacity of the hard drive makes it ideal for storing photos, videos, and other large files. Should you need more, you can connect external storage devices using its USB ports as well as its SD media card reader, which also can be used to quickly transfer files from your mobile devices.

Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet port for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Dual-Band Wi-Fi lets you connect to the 5 GHz band, which can deliver faster speeds compared to the 2.4 GHz band. If you run out of USB ports or would rather save them for other devices, you can pair compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.1 technology. Other integrated features include speakers, microphones, a subwoofer, a 1080p webcam, audio-in and -out jacks, and a backlit keyboard. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

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.
Cortana
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.
