MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Review
We often comment upon how initial impressions can make a big difference in making you happy with your purchase, and the Dragon Edition definitely goes for the sleek and subtle option, with just the major highlights on the front of a box dominated by the Dragon Edition logo. Opening up the box and, although our review sample has obviously been around the block a little, you can't help but be impressed. Plenty of sturdy cardboard keeps the laptop itself well protected and all the accessories in their own compartments.
The G series branding is on everything. Opening each bit is an event and helps drag out the anticipation of laying your eyes on the laptop itself. Firstly the brick that keeps you running for as long as you desire.
And a UK moulded power cable. You'd be surprised how many items we see with a Euro plug that forces us to dig through the cupboards for an adaptor.
Documentation is both plentiful and sparse. There is a quick start guide, warranty and such like, but the main manual is contained on the laptop itself, as well as the supplied CD.
Finally we have the Dragon Edition itself. A brushed aluminium top has a beautiful dragon etched into it, which is a royal pain to photograph. On the flip side we have the big 7800mAh battery and plenty of vents to keep it cool when under pressure.
