Model: Oh hey, look, there is a Titan in the room! MSI brings all it has to the table. HDR ready screen, 4K display, i7 desktop processor and a GeForce GTX 1070 GPU. Of course do not forget the 512 GB SSD. Did mention I HDR again?
As you can guess this 17.3 inch laptop, as far as the specification says, is a gaming machine - surprise! But looking at it, you start wondering, does it have to be this big? Asus and Acer are also on the same train, they have supposedly mobile gaming machines that are thick and heavy. How heavy? How about 4.5 kg heavy? Do not forget the 1.2 kg power supply. So something close to 6 kg… Let me ask, do you even lift bro?
I can not underestimate the raw power this device provides. It is for sure that you can play everything you want in every possible settings. This 17.3 inch laptop can do whatever you want from it. But then, when you have such power, can you control it? Since great power, comes with great thermal responsibility, MSI provided pipes, too many pipes in the base unit. There are 4 exhaust vents; 1 left, 1 right, 2 at rear and all with visible heat pipes. Depending on the model there can be 10 total visible heat pipes. Heat is at the core of this device, therefore it has a button to activate all fans at 100 % speed just to cool it down faster. But then you realize what you have is not a laptop, but a miniature jet engine. It is a trade off.
There is just one thing that i did not like much about this device and that is being future proof. There is only one USB 3.1 connection, the rest of the 5 available ports are just USB 3.0. You get an HDMI and a mini DisplayPort connection and, that is it. I would have expected such a huge device to offer something more (besides the screen), because there is already an established competition and you got to be different to step out.
There is Acer’s Predator series, Asus comes with the G703 series, Alienware was always into gaming machines. Since all these series provide raw hardware power, as customers we want to see something different. RGB backlit mechanical keyboards, huge fans, strong hardware, nice screens… They all sound the same after a while. What makes MSI’s model different? Maybe it is the HDR ready screen, but besides that, nothing else.
This model is priced around 4500$ and above. At this price point, it delivers what it has to. But the question you need to ask is whether you want mobility or not. If mobility is a concern, there are Max-Q models that are way thinner compared to this beast. But if you are thinking of keeping your laptop just as a desktop replacement, then GT75VR might be your choice.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 SLI (Laptop): Two high-end GTX 1070 in SLI combination. The 3D performance depends on the driver support for the game and may range from 0 - 90% faster than a single GTX 1070.
These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.
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.
7820HK: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.9 - 3.9 GHz. It is the second fastest model of the consumer H-series in the beginning of 2017. The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1100 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake). Compared to the Core i7-7820HQ, the 7820HK lacks business features like vPro or TXT support.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
