MSI today unveiled a pair of new G Series gaming laptops outfitted with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 570M discrete graphics. Available in 15.6-inch (GT683DXR) and 17.3-inch (GT780DXR) form factors, MSI is pitching both at the "serious gamer seeking unmatched power with an unprecedented immersive experience." Let's see how MSI backs up that claim.
Sitting at the top of the totem pole is the GT780DXR-099US. This flagship model ships with an Intel Core i7 2630QM processor, the above mentioned Nvidia GeForce GTX 570M graphics chip with 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory, 1.5TB of storage (2x750GB), 16GB of DDR3 memory, Blu-ray burner, GbE LAN, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, multi-memory card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, 720p HD webcam, Dynaudio Premium Sound Speakers, SteelSeries gaming backlit keyboard, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and a 9-cell battery. These specs will set you back $2,000. For $200 less, the 17.3-inch model is also available in a slightly toned down configuration that includes 12GB of DDR3 memory , 1TB of hard drive storage (2x500GB), and a DVD burner.
The 15.6-inch model is also offered in two configurations priced at $1,700 and $1,850 with the same spec sheets, only minus the SteelSeries keyboard and with 1TB on both SKUs.
