    Anyone knows when this will hit the US?

    I was thinking about getting a razer blade, but i think this one would be a better choice.

    OMG That is great to hear.
    If it gets battery life like the Razer too and it's under $2k, it'll be the perfect laptop.

    But that is not the same one.
    That model has a monitor on the touchpad and weights 8lb+.
    The one I'm interested at is the GS70 that weights lighter and thinner than the Razer Blade(As MSI Representative said above) It should be cheaper too.

    O_O Just saw a video on YouTube about the production version of GS70.
    Apparently it's only going to weight 2.66kg or 5.8lbs.
    It's only going to be 22mm thick or 0.86 inches.
    Plus it's going to have 3 hours battery life.

    If those specs are correct, this kills the Razer Blade Pro on every aspect AND it's going to be cheaper!
    This laptop is going to be awesome! =D

    Yep, lately MSI has been pulling no punches in every single market segment with amazing laptops :) I definitely encourage the GS series far more than the Razer

    I may have to go for this one for the portability. My GT60 is nice and powerful but i did not realize how big it was. I had difficulty fitting it into a laptop bag made for 17" notebooks. I know the gpu is a downgrade but I really only play MMOs like Wow, FFXIV, and maybe EQ Next/Wildstar. No FPS or anything. Choices, choices.

    Exactly!

    Portability is always a big factor in laptops. If you're going to buy a 10lb+ laptop, you're better off just buying a PC and save some money.

    This GS series laptop is shaping up to be an amazing laptop.

    If GS 70 is user upgrade friendly (upgrade RAM's SSD's mSata) this is a win towards Razer which you swap your own hardware result void warranty.

    Dual mSata in raid 0 + killer doubleshot in a slim form factor...

    Dual msata plus another hdd. That has a lot of storage potential.

    Being "thick" and "heavy" are the common characteristics of most high-performance gaming notebooks. To ensure high-standard, high-speed, and high-reliability computing, consumers began to get used to the inconvenient portability of high-end gaming notebooks. With the continuous and concerted effort of the R&D team, MSI broke the misconception of "high performance = thick + heavy shell" by launching the new-generation Ultra-Gaming Notebook: MSI GS70.

    In a fashionable metal shell, the MSI GS70 is less than 2.6kg and only 2.18 cm thick. It is the thinnest, lightest, and best-equipped gaming notebook in the industry. Besides the MSI-exclude Super Raid technology to enhance data access speed, the dual-fan cooling design allows the 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX765M GPU to deliver perfect performance in a reliable operating environment. In the 3D Mark Vantage test, the P Score of both the CPU and GPU is 18000 marks.

    To ensure optimal gaming experience, MSI also equips the GS70 with the Steelseries full-color backlit keyboard and outstanding 2.1 channels audio. With one HDMI and two Mini DisplayPorts, the GS70 supports triple display at the same time to provide gamers accustomed to multitasking operation with more comfortable and convenient game space.

    Better hope the battery is NOT the MSI GE's 4400mAh one, it will suck.

    Don't the specs look almost identical to a GE70? Other than finish and trackpad, is there really a difference?

    Any chance the battery life will be closer to 4-5 hours? What's the point of a super portable laptop if it always has to be plugged in?

    The cheaper version will probably cost around 1400$
    If the screen is IPS with at least 70% gamut it might be a worthwhile investment.
