COMPUTEX 2011   MSI GT780R Notebook Ups Your Game   msinb 4 500x299

Got game? Want more game? MSI is catering to the gaming enthusiasts out there with the MSI GT780R, a gaming notebook with some serious horsepower to back up its serious personality.

Shown off at Computex in Taipei, the GT780R — sometimes called the GT780(R) — is a 17.3-inch (1920×1080) laptop with Sandy Bridge Intel Core i7 under the hood. You get up to 16GB of RAM, along with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX560M CPU and a dual hard drive configuration. As has become the case with most premium notebooks from MSI, this one also gets its sound from Dynaudio along with a keyboard by Steelseries.

The three zoned backlit keyboard adds that much more personality. In going hands on with the GT780R, I was impressed by the robust feel of the “island” style keyboard too. Naturally, you get a couple of USB 3.0 ports, along with USB 2.0, HDMI, eSATA, and VGA.

Pricing will depend on your SKU of choice, but you can expect to spend about $1,500 to $2,200 for a GT780R.

    That’s a colorful back lit keyboard laptop. Wonder if you can make the colors solid. Mobile gaming is the continuing trend. Add a 24″ LCD at home and you’re back to pwning basics. :)
