MSI unveils the world’s thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop

Coming in at $1999.99, and $1799.99

MSI Computer Corp has unveiled the GS70, the world’s thinnest and lightest 17-inch gaming laptop at just .85 inches! It features a fourth generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M, and features a 1TB or 750GB HDD depending on the configuration you want to get.

The 1TB HDD version is going for $1999.99, while the 750GB one is $1799.99. Both models also include 16GB of DDR3L memory, four USB 3.0 ports, three audio jacks, 720p HD camera, and support for up to three external displays via HDMI and mDP ports.

All in all, it weighs 5.73 pounds, and gives the Razer Blade Pro a run for its money. Still, the Razer Blade (14-inch) is the true thinnest laptop in general, but the GS70 is now the thinnest 17-inch model laptop. Plus MSI’s most expensive configuration is cheaper than Razer’s 17-inch, while the cheaper version comes in at the same price as Razer’s 14-inch. Nice.
