Second generation Dynaudio offers top-quality sound: MSI worked in close collaboration with specialists at Denmark's world-renowned sound system designing firm Dynaudio to further enhance Dynaudio sound technology. Vast amounts of study and countless calculations went into determining ideal speaker locations to obtain obstruction-free sound transmission. MSI employed Gold flash audio jack, the best (and most expensive) conduction material in the world, in its sound I/O ports. The gold provides cleaner, crisper sound and reproduces stereo more precisely, while enhancing anti-oxidization, transmission efficiency, and noise reduction. The GT60 and GT70 even offer the serious gamer the best possible audio experience in the form of pure, obstruction-free sound through external stereo speakers or earphones. In addition, the THX TruStudio Pro smart wrap around sound, heretofore only found in high-end cinemas, enables the GT60 and GT70 laptops to reproduce various kind of music in any frequency band.
Unparalleled professional-grade SteelSeries keyboard: MSI has heard your calls for equipment designed with the gamer in mind. As such, we got together with SteelSeries, the leader in gaming peripherals, to create a new generation starfighter-grade keyboard for the MSI GT60 and GT70. And the GT70 can lets you choose from among five keyboard backlighting scenarios—Normal, Gaming, Wave, Breathing, and Dual Color, that can be used in coordination with variable section lighting, and seven colors offering over 1,000 variations. Gamers will also appreciate the fact that when you depress the Gaming Mode hotkey, the frequently used W, A, S, D, and Ctrl keys located on the left side of the keyboard are all backlit in LED while the rest of the keyboard stays dark. This allows you to quickly find the key you're looking for, so you can remain focused on the rapidly changing melee you are in, giving you that extra edge you need to come out on top.

32GB of memory: New generation MSI GT60 and GT70 gaming laptops come equipped with four DDR3 memory slots to give you an incredible 32GB of memory.

Unequaled professional-grade SteelSeries keyboard: Responding to the call of extreme gamers, MSI worked side by side with leader in gaming peripheral design SteelSeries to provide the GE60 and GE70 a keyboard designed specifically with gaming in mind. It lets you choose from among five keyboard backlighting scenarios—Normal, Gaming, Wave, Breathing, and Dual Color, that can be used in coordination with variable section lighting, and seven colors offering over 1,000 variations in visual effects.
