The MSi GT780 is a high-end gaming notebook laptop similar to the MSi GT680. The key differences between the GT780 and the GT680 are screen size (the GT780 sports a 17.3" HD LCD display while the GT680 sports a 15.6" display) and graphics processor (the GT780 sports an Nvidia GeForce GTX 500M GPU, the GT680 a GeForce 460M). Otherwise, the two laptops sport the same features, including a second generation Intel Core i7 processor, 4 DIMM slots for up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM and a 120GB SSD with additional HDD options.
The GT780's second generation Intel Core i7 chip provides extreme mobile performance while consuming less battery life than first generation i7s due to a smaller and more efficient 32 nm architecture. Its 120GB SSD provides the GT780 with greater read/write speeds, greatly improving operating system performance compared to standard hard disk drives. Meanwhile, the GT780's Nvidia GeForce GTX 500M GPU provides moderate to high gaming performance, allowing it to tackle some of the most graphically intense titles on the market.
