Reviews for the MSI GT783-625US
Battery life is commendable at 3 hrs 29 mins of moderate use , an hour longer than the M17x manages. This machine is a lifestyle choice – its superlative input devices, premium sound system and herculean performance all justify its price. And with these components it’s about as future-proof as anything out there.

True gaming-class notebooks don't come cheap, and the MSI GT783-625US is no exception, but it does offer very good graphics and productivity performance at a price that won't break the bank. And, it's not just a black box with fast parts inside; the neat lighting effects give it some attitude and the SteelSeries keyboard and Dynaudio sound system might just make you forget about your desktop PC altogether. Throw in a sturdy aluminum chassis and a dynamite HD display, and we're happy to give the MSI our Editors' Choice for under-$3,000 gaming laptops. You may want to crank up those excellent speakers to drown out the fan noise though.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
