MSI GT60 and GT70 are often touted as the ultimate gaming beasts with GT 70 already receiving the upgrade the Nvidia GTX 675M GPU. Now, both of these notebooks will now be offered with even more beefed up Nvidia GTX 680M GPU with 4GB dedicated RAM.
Specs of both of these MSI notebooks are same expect for the difference in screen size (16 inch and 17 inch respectively) – Intel Core i7 3610QM processor, 1920 x 1080 full HD screen, E2200 LAN card, 3x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port. Here is how its processor, the i7 3610qm fares when compared to other high end processors like i7 3920xm, which is the fastest Ivy bridge laptop processor.
However, there are certain things that bug us a lot. First, MSI increased its price by 450 dollars just to upgrade the Nvidia 650m / 675m GPU to 680M. Second, neither comes with Blu ray drive.
