MSI has added a new model to their popular G-series gaming laptops which appears in the form of GT740. The 17-inch monster features the latest Intel Core i7 quad core processor, Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and nVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M 3D discrete graphics card. Check out the official announcement from the manufacturer.

The newest fully-evolved G series extreme gaming notebook, the GT740, is the latest in the series to feature the advanced Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor as well as Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows 7. With a 17-inch display, the nVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M 3D discrete graphics card (DDR3 1GB VRAM) and five Hi-Fi speakers with SRS Premium Sound™; gaming, watching video, and listening to music are all exciting and true-to-life experiences.

Ultimate Operational Efficiency

The GT740 runs on Microsoft’s new Windows 7 operating system and uses the latest Intel® Core™ i7 processor. The high grade nVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M 3D discrete graphics card (DDR3 1GB VRAM), and the GT740’s outstanding software specifications provide gamers with highly efficient operations and the world’s strongest gaming notebook computer.

Ground Shaking Audio/Video Experience

The GT740 features a 17-inch display along with a new generation of hardware and software. The keyboard area and frame each features 2 Hi-Fi 3D speakers and a lower-unit mounted bass speaker. All together, this total 5 speaker Hi-Fi set up is designed to provide ultimate performance in audio and video applications and allow gamers enjoy a ground shaking experience. What’s more, the built-in HDMI interface renders the GT740 into a gaming platform and a digital audio/video center with outstanding functionality.

Fiery Gaming Aesthetics

The ultra-thin aluminum alloy frame with brushed metal accents allows the 17-inch GT740 to weigh in at a mere 3.2 kg including battery. Fiery red frame accents contrast the cold feeling of the notebook’s technological interface and give the MSI G Series notebooks the feeling of movement while standing still—an appearance that defines gaming aesthetics.

The GT740 keyboard area’s two Hi-Fi 3D speakers with polished metal detailing create a futuristic look and stand out from the understated functional keys below the touch pad.  Additional speakers located on the right and left sides of the frame help make the GT740 a professional audio/video combat machine. With brilliant functionality and a formidable outward appearance, the GT740 simultaneously represents contemporary styling and the ultimate in professional, high-speed gaming capabilities.
