MSI GE70 Apache Pro-012 - 17.3" Gaming Laptop with Core i7-4700HQ, GTX860M with 2GB GDDR5 VRAM, DVD Rewriter and Windows 8.1

The MSI GE70 Apache Pro-012 is new gaming laptop from MSI comes with i7 Haswell processor and GeForce GTX 860M graphics, also packing no less than 12 GB of memory. This an absolutely stunning laptop! Beautiful chassis, solid build and amazing keyboard!

For the price, MSI GE70 Apache Pro-012 is relatively a good value. I have been reading reviews on gaming laptops for the better part of the past year now,
  • Extremely appealing aesthetic design, not the typical garish gaming rig.
  • Most powerful overall unit in this price range that will still fit in your backpack!
  • GTX 860M performs fantastic with the new 337.50 driver. 1080p Max settings on everything!
  • HDD is excellent, for a HDD. Absolutely the fastest HDD based laptop I have ever used.
  • Keyboard is fantastic. Easily the best laptop keyboard I have ever used, and the color effects can be configured to your preference.
  • Screen is extremely good for a matte solution.

The case is beautiful, sleek, thin and relatively light. If you are considering between the GT series and the GE or GS series I would recommend stopping by your local Fry's and putting hands on all three. I personally was going to get the GT or the Asus ROG 750 series but I ended up not liking how bulky they were once I was hands on with them. The GE is much more nimble than the GT.

The sound quality from the laptop speakers are incredible for laptop speakers. They play plenty loud and can easily fill a small room with noise.
