GT80_Titan / Gaming laptop


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

In order to design the best gaming laptop, the designer cooperated with the MSI Gaming Team to investigate the true needs of gamers. In addition to the hardware, gamers tend to use mechanical keyboards because there are some advantages like direct feeling, long stroke, quick reaction and better durability. So we decided that a mechanical keyboard would become the most important feature in the GT80. Besides, we also understand that gamers like to upgrade their parts. They just need to slide the aluminum sheet to be able to upgrade the main parts, including SSD, ram, HD and ODD.
