We took a close-up gander at some of MSI's new laptops this week at CES and two caught our eye. The MSI GT70 Dragon Edition is turning heads (and snagged a CES Innovations award) for its bright-red chassis, which sports dragon engravings. The $2699 system has a 17.3-inch, 1920x1080 screen and boasts an Intel Core i7
-3630QM processor. Other features to note include Nvidia GeForce GTX 680M graphics, as well as Killer
technology for wireless (N1202) and LAN (E2200).
Another standout is the MSI Quadro Workstation which is targeted at business users and students involved in 3D design and animation. (The laptop was running AutoCAD for our demo.) As you might have guessed, the laptop runs Nvidia Quadro
K2000M and an Intel Core i7 processor.
Built in the same chassis as the MSI GT60 gamer, the Workstation keeps some of its gamer heritage in the form of Killer E2200 networking. But where the GT60 has 12GB of RAM
, the Workstation boasts 32GB.
