The MSi GX740 is a top-of-the-line gaming notebook laptop aimed at only the most serious mobile gamers. It features a 1.6GHz Core i7-720QM processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 500GB hard drive and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 GPU (1GB DDR5). It also sports a 17-inch LCD panel with a native resolution of 1,680 x 1,050, an ExpressCard slot and three USB ports as well as VGA and HDMI outputs.
The GX470's Core i7-720QM processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics processor ensure that it will be able to handle even the newest DirectX 11 PC games pretty handily. Its 17-inch LCD panel allows for on-the-go gaming but its size and native resolution under-utilizes the Radeon HD 5870's graphical power; fortunately its VGA and HDMI outputs allow for interfacing with computer monitors and HDTVs for at home use.
