MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Review

PC Mark 7

PC Mark Vantage is currently incompatible with Windows 8, along with many other things, but PC Mark 7 Pro still gives results, and what excellent performance there is to be had from the MSI Dragon Edition. No matter what it's asked to do it performs it with aplomb, getting near to hardcore desktop scores.

Today we're taking a look at a full-specced laptop from MSI, the GT70 Dragon Edition. Does it spit fire or just smoulder beneath its pile of gold?

thank god they stepped in the MX chips, the old fermi 670's are awful in laptops.

Basically a 560ti desktop card in a laptop , wish I wasn't a student as these things come at high cost Quote

Love the dragon on it the most, awesome performance but with that money I would prefer taking the time to build the rig I been dreaming of for years.

Awesome laptop though, and it looks fantastic, probably the prettiest gaming laptop I have seen and the custom color lighting for the keyboard is very impressive, you don't get that much flexibility.

I would give it 9/10 .

Tanks for the review OC3DQuote

Good review. Personally I would never pay that much for a laptop, but great performance none-the-less.

Why do all these "Gaming" laptops all have the track pad where it is rather than to the right of the keyboard? Makes no sense to me and it will be tricky to game on it without an external mouse which defeats the object Quote

i have to admit i havent read over a laptop review in a LOOOOOOONG time....and i must say, I am not impressed!!!(with performance,not the review....that was good)Quote

Hmmmm, I wonder how this would stack up against OriginPC's EON17s.Quote

Nice laptop, but that would be a decent chink towards my xeon system - if that's what I go for. Quote

Not a bad laptop at all. I would go for that over any Alienware any day (as I type this on an M11X R2... I WAS DESPERATE ). Only issue I have with laptops that size is their weight; I buy a laptop, I don't necessarily want it to weigh a ton (to me, a ton is more than 9 lbs), or eat batter life... This unit, it seems, covers at LEAST one of those angles, which is shocking considering the level of hardware on tap.Quote

A very powerful laptop. With beefed hardware, that puts this machine among the best laptops out there. Nice review.Quote

I would like to point out that on page 5 CPUz shows i7-3630QM and on pages 1 and 8 it is stated that it is an i7-3960QM.Quote
