MSI is revealing a long list of laptops, systems, motherboards, GPUs, and even new software to use. Up first are the laptops, of which there are three. The GS40 Phantom is a 14" gaming laptop with a Skylake processor and NVIDIA GTX 970M graphics but yet weighs only 3.75 lbs and is less than 0.87 inches thick.
Next up is the larger GT72S Tobii which offers a unique feature, Tobii Eye-Tracking technology built into the laptop. That allows facial recognition and eye tracking in applications and games, currently this would apply to Windows Hello, which enables Windows 10 biometric authentication and eye-tracking functionality. In the near future the release of Tom Clancy’s The Division will add a game to the list of supported applications. You can read more about them here.
MSI are also updating their Stealth lineup with the GS72 Stealth Pro, which currently features a 4k screen, with another model coming out very soon with a non-4K display for those who don't see the point of such a high resolution on a 17" laptop. It is also rather thin, at 0.78".
To finish up the laptops is the workhorse, the WS72 Workstation. This comparatively thick laptop is powered by an Intel Xeon and is certified to work with a long list of professional applications such as Autodesk, Adobe, PTC Creo, AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Maya, and Revit.
