MSI revealed the pricing and specifications of its new Windows 8 gaming laptops:
MSI Computer Corp., a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, refreshes arsenal of gaming laptops with Windows 8 operating system to provide gamers with enhanced system performance and a more immersive user experience.

MSI’s Windows 8 upgrade applies to upcoming laptops in the G Series, including the acclaimed GT70 and GT60 units. Armed with the latest NVIDIA® Keplar GeForce® video cards, Killer™ E2200 Game Networking, Dynaudio Speakers and Steel Series Gaming Backlit Keyboard, both the GT70 and GT60 delivers exceptional performance that shatters the expectations of even the most demanding gamers. In addition, select models of the GT70 are now available with Killer™ Wireless-N 1202 card, increasing networking speeds by up to five times.

"MSI’s combination of superior gaming components and an upgraded operating system allows users to fully immerse in the gaming world without sacrificing affordability and performance,” said Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. “Windows has been a staple in the personal computing world and the new version promises to improve performance and re-engage users through a new interface."
