MSI has had the same core designs for several of their high-end laptops for at least a couple years now; specifically we’re talking about the GT60 and GT70 series. There have been updates and tweaks to the internal components, but the chassis remain largely the same as before – for better or for worse. The latest update brings NVIDIA’s new GTX 800M parts into the picture, and today we have the GT70 equipped with the top-of-the-line GTX 880M.
