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.
