In the not-too-distant past, you needed big bucks to afford a gaming laptop that could actually play the latest games in all their high-res glory. With the MSI GX70 3BE-007US, you get speedy frame rates and a boatload of features in a relatively affordable 17-inch gaming laptop. However, this AMD-based system's productivity and multimedia performance leaves much to be desired.

The MSI GX70 3Be-007US put up splendid scores for 3D hi-res gaming for a laptop of its price, even when pitted against two comparably priced Editors' Choice gaming laptops, the CyberPower FangBook X7-200 and the MSI GX60 1AC-021US. If your interests extend beyond gaming, the FangBook X7-200 provides more well-rounded performance while still putting up very good frame rates for its price. But the GX70 comes through where it matters most for gamers, earning its place as a new Editors' Choice for entry-level gaming laptops.

MSI’s GX70 has been parachuted into a market which is filled with notebooks sporting Intel’s latest processors and NVIDIA graphics chips but that hasn’t prevented it from becoming an enticing, affordable alternative. At just $1300 it has the ability to compete with notebooks that cost hundreds more while still attaining respectable battery life and an excellent feature set.
