MSI GS70 Stealth and GS60 Ghost now available with GeForce 870M inside

MSI shows us that there is no need for gaming laptops to be bulky and awkward; they can be sexy, slim and svelte. Have a look at their latest offerings: the GS70 Stealth and GS60 Ghost notebooks and the sense of light and thin becomes apparent. A look under the hood and the sense of power also gets evident.

Staking claim on being unrivaled in the field of gaming power combined with such a light and slender chassis, the Stealth and the Ghost measure just about 0.85-inches and 0.78 inches in thickness, respectively. Let’s looks at the Stealth first, this one gets filed under the 17-inch screen category and works with an Intel Core i7-4700HQ CPU. The GPU used here is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M, the same we saw under the hood of the ultra-thin Razer Blade gaming notebook. Specs also include a 128GB mSATA drive and 1TB (7200 RPM) HDD with 16GB of DDR3-1600MHz RAM.


Focusing on the Ghost now, this notebook features the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M GPU, very much like the Lenovo Y50. Specs here include a 128GB mSATA drive with a 750GB (7200 RPM) HDD and of course 12GB (8GB + 4GB) of DDR3-1600MHz RAM. Both the laptops offer three USB 3.0 ports, miniDisplayPort, and HDMI port.

Another common factor for the two is the Killer Gaming Network LAN + BT4.0 and Intel 7260 Wilkins Peak 2 2x2 802.11ac WiFi, SD/XC/HC card readers. To match so much power and offer an immersive gaming experience, MSI includes stereo speakers with a subwoofer. Details like backlit keyboards jazz up the system. One last thing, the webcam used on both the notebooks is the 720p HD webcams, and not to forget, 6-cell batteries for the power.

You can pick the MSI GS70 Stealth from $1,899.99 onwards and the GS60 Ghost starts at $1,699.99.
