Since reviewing the MSI GT70 in May this year, we have seen this gaming laptop upgraded to feature the top-end NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M GPU two months later in July. Now, MSI has refreshed its entire G-Series range of gaming laptops to the new Windows 8 operating system. This series comprises a mix of 17.3- and 15.6-inch laptops that include the high-end GT range as well as the GE range of machines for more budget-conscious gamers. There is also a lone GX60 laptop thrown into the mix and it is powered by a Trinity A10 mobile CPU and features the AMD HD Radeon 7970M mobile GPU.
