Back in December, a little over a year after Linux creator Linus Torvalds famously lamented the lack of laptops with “reasonable resolution” displays , Taiwanese PC vendor MSI launched the industry’s first 3K gaming laptops in the form of the GT60 2OD-261US and  2OKWS-278US. Now, the company is all set to add another 3K notebook to its lineup. Maximum PC’s Jimmy Thang got up close and personal with the upcoming GS60 Ghost Pro gaming notebook at PAX East.

The 15.6-inch, 2880x1620 is the higher-res cousin of the recently launched 1080p GS60 Ghost . Apart from the WQHD+ IPS display, the Ghost Pro packs an Intel Core i7-4700HQ,  16GB DDR3L 1600MHz RAM, 1TB HDD (7200RPM), 128GB SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M with 6GB of GDDR5 RAM.

According to the company, the ultra-thin and light laptop, which weighs less than 4 pounds, will hit the market either in late April or early May, priced somewhere around $2,000.
