MSI launches the GS40 Phantom gaming notebook

The dictator on the gaming notebook market MSI has announced one more gaming notebook model under the GS40 Phantom product name. The company claims that the GS40 Phantom is the world’s thinnest and lightest gaming laptop.

Indeed this might be true – the device weighs only 3.5 lbs (1.589 kilograms) and is less than 0.86 inches (218 mm) thick. The small size does not reduce the power of the hardware inside – the GS40 Phantom gaming notebook comes with Intel Core i7 Skylake processors, GeForce GTX 970M graphics, DDR4 SDRAM, PCI-E Gen3 SSD, Super Port and more. The price, apart from money, that you will have to pay for this portability is that the GS40 Phantom comes with a relatively small 14-inch display that works at Full HD resolution but the notebook compensates with Killer E2400 networking, a SD card reader, a 1080p web camera, four Dynaudio Tech Speakers with Nahimic Sound and more.

“The GS40 Phantom is a breakthrough in design that combines the power of bigger gaming laptops with the portability of a netbook,” says Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America. “The GS40 Phantom does not scale back on performance just to be lighter or thinner, it complements its svelte physique with technologies not even found in larger units.”

The GS40 Phantom sells for USD 1599.99 and this price gets you a copy of Windows 10 too.
