MSI GT80 Titan review

 

The world's most powerful gaming laptop is more like a foldable desktop

Authentic mechanical keyboard ; Unsurpassed performance ; Easily upgraded

Virtually non-existent battery life ; H-E-A-V-Y ; Impossible to use on your lap

The MSI GT80 is a real treat, with stellar performance, easy upgrades and a mechanical keyboard. However, this gaming rig is a heavy burden on your wallet and back.

MSI GT80 Titan SLI

 

The MSI GT80 Titan SLI is a powerful gaming laptop, and the first we've seen with a mechanical keyboard, but top performance doesn't quite overcome a hulking, awkward design.

Potent performance with an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor and dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics. Unique design with mechanical keyboard. Giant 18.4-inch display. Components are easy to access and upgrade.

Clunky design. Short battery life.

Conclusion The MSI GT80 Titan SLI is impressive in a lot of ways. It offers powerful graphics performance, an easy way to access components for upgrading, which is relatively unheard of for notebooks, and the first full mechanical keyboard in a laptop....

MSI GT80 Titan SLI

 

Gamers have long known that even the best keyboard on a gaming laptop will never equal a bona fide mechanical keyboard. But this was a necessary tradeoff in the name of portability. No longer. MSI is ushering in a new era with the GT80 Titan SLI...

MSI GT80S Titan SLI Review

 

The GT80S 6QE gaming notebook not only delivers two GTX 980M graphics cards and a mechanical keyboard that made the GT80 so impressive, but also leverages a new Intel Skylake processor and DDR4 system RAM for even greater performance.

Outstanding performance ; Fantastic mechanical keyboard ; Great speakers ; MXM graphics cards and multiple upgrade options

Loud cooling fans ; Sometimes odd mix of metal and plastic ; Uneven screen brightness ; Wake from sleep issues

Beast of a computer!!!

 

All that's missing is a 4K monitor. Everything else is perfect for gaming or whatever else you want to throw at it.

-Extreme power -Minimal bloatware -Fast

-No 4K screen

Legendary Product

 

Recommend it to anyone who can afford it, This beast will serve you well.

Just got this beast , the results and the performance of this thing are unbelievable, MSI pushed it to the limits and they made something phenomenal for a ''laptop''. It's very expensive , but keep in mind this is the best laptop of all times. This is...

High Price, not for everyone.

Excellent desktop replacement.

 

Yes, I would highly recommend this to people that aren't concerned about the cost and want an incredible product that fits what they want in a pc. It obviously isn't for everyone but it is exactly what I want at home and when I travel. It did come with...

It's a beast. Runs everything I can find at max settings and it still has gas in the tank. Feels very solid, the screen has no issues and the keys are mechanical but not loud, which is important to me. It has a lot of features, like a button to turn...

Heavy and hot. I personally don't mind the weight, but I also don't take it with me wherever I go. When I do take it, I don't mind because I know I'm not dragging around a piece of garbage. The heat that comes out is incredible. It's got two big video...
