Gaming laptop brings the bling
Gold seems to be the ‘in’ thing among mobile devices these days, so why not extend the color option over to laptops? That must have been what MSI was thinking when it conceived limited edition versions of its GS60 Ghost Pro 3K and GS60 Ghost gaming notebooks. Each one packs high end hardware inside a “luxurious golden chassis” measuring 15.35 inches by 10.47 inches by 0.78 inches and weighing 4.36 pounds.
“Our Golden GS60 Ghost gaming notebooks are designed for mobile gamers wishing to obliterate the opponent in class,” says Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America. “The gold exterior will turn heads, the svelte design will amaze, and the combination of smoking speeds, deadly graphics and amazing customization power will render anybody speechless.”
The less expensive of the two models — GS60 Ghost — runs $1,900 and sports a 15.6-inch Full HD 1080p (1920×1080) display, Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.4GHZ to 3.4GHz) processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M graphics, 128GB M.2 SATA SSD + 1TB (7200 RPM) HDD, 12GB (8GB + 4GB) DDR3L 1600 RAM, Killer E200 Game Networking, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, SD card ready, four Dynaudio Tech Speakers + subwoofer, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, Full HD 1080p webcam, SteelSeries full-color backlit keyboard, 6-cell battery, and Windows 8.1.
For $2,200 you can upgrade to the GS60 Ghost Pro 3K. It bumps the display up to 3K (2880×1620), upgrades the processor to an Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.5GHz to 3.4GHz), increases the RAM to 16GB, and adds a second 128GB SSD in RAID 0.
MSI’s limited edition GS60 Ghost laptops are available exclusively at Newegg.
