MSI has refreshed its arsenal of gaming laptops with Windows 8 operating system to provide gamers with enhanced system performance and a more immersive user experience.

MSI’s Windows 8 upgrade applies to the upcoming laptops in the G Series, including the GT70 and GT60 units. Armed with the latest NVIDIA Kepler GeForce video cards, Killer E2200 Game Networking, Dynaudio Speakers, and Steel Series Gaming Backlit Keyboard, both the GT70 and GT60 deliver exceptional performance that shatters the expectations of even the most demanding gamers. In addition, select models of the GT70 are now available with a Killer Wireless-N 1202 card, increasing networking speeds by up to five times.

Windows 8 operating system will also be available in the more budget-conscious GE series and the AMD processor based GX60.
