MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Review
The Dragon Unleashed
As well as the Dragon engraved on the top side, there is one on the wrist portion of the GT70 too.
Starting at the bottom we have the touchpad with split left and right buttons. The keyboard is a SteelSeries affair with an awesome party-trick. As well as being the short-throw laptop style you'd expect, it also has an excellent level of tactile feedback. It's a joy to type on, and with the golden triangle (WASD, Left Control and Space) it's easy to game on too, especially as the Windows key has been moved to the right hand side to avoid accidental presses. Above the keyboard are the speakers, and a touch interface that allows you to adjust the Turbo, cooling, lighting etc.
The screen is a full HD LCD model, with a HD webcam at the top for video calling, or showing off your bedroom on the social networking site of your choice.
The GT70 isn't the slenderest laptop in the world, but we'd rather have this amount of power than have something razor thin but wheezy. On the right hand side is the BluRay writer and two USB ports.
Round the left are the USB 3.0 ports, the card reader and the audio/headphone jacks. Finally at the rear of the Dragon we have power, network and external display outputs.
