Review of the MSI GT70 2PC Dominator

MSI GT70 2PC Dominator

If you are looking for a laptop for a great gaming experience, the 17-inch MSI GT70 2PC Dominator might be the one  for you. Equipped with the most recently introduced hardware by Nvidia, this laptop comes with a keyboard that can be customized. It also has a Blue-ray disk drive. There are some drawbacks, for instance the lack of support from a touch-pad for the perfect Windows 8 user experience. However, it is still a very appealing option for gaming lovers and comes at a very modest price.

Design features

 People who have already used MSI’s laptops in the gaming category previously, might find the MSI GT70 Dominator very similar  in its design with respect to the other laptops. The laptop comes with a trendy keyboard which is well designed by SteelSeries.

Several back-lighting colors are available with options of setting any rainbow color of your choice. The keys are easy to use with just the right amount of depth and the touch-pad support is reasonably good too. It has distinct buttons for left and right navigation but the option to ‘swipe’, which is a basic feature of Windows 8 navigation, is absent.

The screen is 17.3 inches wide and offers a resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels. The reflectivity and strain from the screen is greatly reduced by the matte finishing. The colors of the display are pretty good as well and the screen viewing is very comfortable even though there is no option to exercise the touch function. However, this is very common among gaming laptops. Last but not the least, there are two speakers fitted on the 2PC Dominator along with a sub-woofer built into the system.

Performance review

The GT70 2PC Dominator has an Intel Core i7-4800 (quad-core) processor. There is a memory RAM of 16 GB and it definitely is a strong performer in both the arenas of gaming and other productive functions.

As far as the multimedia performance is concerned, the Handbrake was completed by the laptop in 32 seconds and it took 3 minutes and 17 seconds for a Photo-shop function. This was quite a good speed  for video and photo editing functions even at a slightly professional level.

The battery life test for the GT70 2PC Dominator was not exactly thrilling as it lasted only for 3 hours and 19 minutes. Even though this was a better performance than laptops such as the EON 17 by Origin but it’s not as good as some of the other laptops in the same range.
