Reviews for the MSI GT75 Titan 8RG-089
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.
