World’s Thinnest and Lightest 17- Inch Gaming Laptop

Despite of what seems to be the weakness of a portable gaming device such as trying to compact a powerful gaming performance into a small stuff and trying to make it not heavy and not so thick, laptop gaming developers continue their quest to overcome these issues.

I have seen these challenges from the gaming laptops that were developed in the past years. The power features were perfect but the physical design had limitations. The almost 2 inch thickness and the 3-4 kg weight of such devices were not so portable anymore.

But these hurdles for the laptop developers has been leaped. MSI, the Taiwan based company has just launched what it claims as the world’s thinnest and lightest 17-inch gaming laptop.

The new MSI GS70 weighs just 5.73lbs and .85 inch thick . Being thin like most of the ultrabook laptops, it holds a powerful gaming experience with Core i7-4700HQ processor, combined with 16GB DDR3 RAM, two 128GB mSATA SSDs in RAID configuration alongside with 1TB hard drive, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M graphics card with 2GB GDDR5, and a 1920 x 1080 17-inch Anti-Reflective display.

HTC One Max: Samsung Note 3 Competitor

The Samsung Note 3 is expected to debut in September, however it is nearly certain that it will not be the only large phone to be unveiled next month. The HTC One Max has been buzzing around, rumored to stand against the Samsung Note 3.

A number of HTC One Max pictures have been leaked in the past few days. The image below was published by Chinese website ePrice. In fact, the HTC has issued a video teaser that shows what is rumoured to be the HTC One Max. The video appeared on Instagram and shows a helicopter landing on a helipad with the message ‘Big things ahead’.
