Running on the latest 3rd generation Intel® Core i7 processor, MSI GT70 Dragon Edition features a high-end NVIDIA GeForce GTX675MX discrete graphics card for detailed image quality. Battery life is surprisingly good thanks to Nvidia’s Optimus GPU switching shenanigans and the power-efficient Intel CPU. It is also the brand-name (Dynaudio) speakers, which provide adequate volume and clarity for occasional headphone-free sessions. Last month, this gaming notebook won the recommended award from APC magazine in Australia. The killing feature gamers can’t ignore is the magic button that allows them to push performance to higher levels with easy to access buttons to access cooling and overclocking functions.
