MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Review

Lighting and BIOS

MSI GT70 Dragon Edition Review

Lighting

Hitting the power button and two things are immediately obvious. Firstly the Dragon Edition boots to Windows incredibly quickly, thanks to a combination of the RAID SSDs and the inherent speediness of the Windows 8 procedure. Secondly, and guaranteed to get you calling in people just to come and look at it, is the keyboard lighting.

You can have an array of colour combinations, as well as lighting only certain sections of the SteelSeries keyboard that the GT70 Dragon Edition comes equipped with, but we have to say the rainbow that shipped as default is the best. We never tired of looking at it. It's easy to control with the supplied software. Click and you're ready to go. We can't wait to see this lighting technology brought to one of the SteelSeries desktop keyboards.

BIOS

The BIOS options are fairly minimal in terms of mad overclocking, but the storage and general options are all available.

The touch panel above the keyboard is very responsive, and everything lights up clearly so you're never unsure if you have the Turbo engaged or not.

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.
