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.
