A desktop replacement that's short on compromises

Looking to replace your desktop system with a laptop but weary of the performance you might be giving up? If so, then you owe it to yourself to check out MSI's new GT72 Dominator Pro laptop line. Available in two SKUs, the Dominator Pro is a 17.3-inch laptop that wields an Intel Core i7 4710HQ processor (2.5GHz to 3.4GHz), Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M graphics, and gobs of RAM.

More specifically, the GT72 Dominator Pro-010 sports 24GB of DDR3L-1600 RAM, along with two 128GB SSDs in a RAID 0 array flanked by a 1TB hard drive (7200 RPM), Blu-ray burner, Killer E2200 Game Networking, Killer N1525 Wireless-AC, SD card reader, Dynaudio speakers with subwoofer, half a dozen USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.4, two mini DisplayPorts, 1080p webcam, SteelSeries full color backlit keyboard, Windows 8.1, and a 9-cell battery.

If that's not enough horsepower, the GT72 Dominator Pro-007 ups the ante with 34GB of DDR3L-1600 RAM and four 128GB SSDs in a RAID 0 array, along with everything included in the 010 model.

All of this hardware goodness comes wrapped in a completely redesigned one-piece aluminum chassis that's less than 2 inches thick with customizable lighting effects.

Both the GT72 Dominator Pro-010 and GT72 Dominator Pro-007 are available now for $2,600 and $3,000, respectively.
