Hey, MSI! You know we haven't fully recovered from the awesome hangover we got from our walang tulugan gaming sessions with your Nightblade PC, and now here you are unleashing two new laptops that had our fingers pressing imaginary buttons at the news of their arrival.
But we're not complaining—any buzz about gadgets that can give us the gaming high we crave for is welcome. And, we tell you, MSI's new laptops will certainly deliver. Two words: Epic Hardware!
These bad boys won't win any beauty contests, but true gamers know that doesn't matter. As the overused cliché goes, "It's the inside that counts!"
MSI GS60 2QE
Packing a 15.6-inch display, the GS60 2QE (a.k.a. Ghost Pro) has the size so you won't be wishing you gamed on a desktop PC with a larger screen instead. It's also in 2880x1620 which is geekspeak for saying it has a higher-than-Full-HD display. #BoomPanes
Inside is a Core i7 processor paired with a whopping 16GB of RAM. That's overkill for stuff like web browsing and video streaming but will definitely come in handy when it comes to squeezing out more FPS (frames per second) out of resource-hungry games. Speaking of enhancing gameplay, the GS60 2QE packs a GeForce GTX 970M GPU, which is recognized as a very capable video card for gaming laptops.

Because today's games tend to be on the heavy side (read: they take up 10 times the space as games from 10 years ago), this notebook also has 1TB of storage. And have we told you that it has a fully-programmable backlit keyboard as well?
MSI GS70 2QE
The GS60 2QE already has good size, but it's dwarfed by its big bro, the GS70 2QE (a.k.a. Stealth Pro), which has a 17.3-inch anti-glare display. It also has more capacity, thanks to an additional 256GB solid-state drive that not only adds more digital real-estate but also speeds up overall operation.
The rest of the specs-list reads similar to the GS60 2QE's: Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, fully-programmable backlit keyboard, and GeForce GTX 970M GPU. A 1080p webcam is also part of the package so you can greet trashtalk your rivals over Skype in Full-HD clarity.
