The MSI GT75 Titan is a truly bonkers gaming system. It isn't best described as a gaming laptop but a shiftable gaming power station that allows you to set up a monstrously powerful computer for both play and work where ever you go. Portable in the sense of whip out on the train for a quick blast it is not, and its insatiable thirst for juice means it can barely wander from a mains electricity supply, either. However, the GT75's incredible hardware spec, 17.3-inch 120Hz display, and smorgasbord of ports and connections make it a do-anything beast that well-heeled gamers are basically mandated to check out before pulling the trigger on an upgrade.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
A laptop in this weight range is a heavyweight that you rarely carry around. This is meant for desktops and the devices tend to score with a large display and high performance and replace desktop devices.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
