The arrival of the new Intel Ivy Bridge platform forced many manufacturers to re-examine their laptop product line. This includes MSI, who are releasing a number of new gaming laptops. One of those models is the GT70, which we will examine more closely in this review.
MSI has recently focussed on the laptop market. Instead of a wide selection of laptops for every price class, the decision was made to primarily concentrate on gaming laptops. The considerable level of competition in many market segments made this a logical choice, and as you will see later on this was not a bad choice. The 17.3-inch GT70 and its 15.6-inch sibling GT60 have been designed with care.
