Bottom Line

The MSI GP70 Leopard-490 will handle most gaming with ease thanks to its powerful hardware and great display and audio, but the design is bulky and the battery life is lower than many laptops in this range.

The MSI GP70 Leopard-490 is a recently released 17.3-inch  2015 laptop with limited review coverage. The previous line of GP70’s received positive reviews for their Full-HD, anti-glare display, a sleek design, a powerful Intel Core i5 processor, decent dedicated graphics and quality speakers. However, its huge size and bulky body may not be suitable for travels and its average battery life isn’t quite as long as other competitors. The GP70 is another good choice in the GP series for users who want to do a bit of gaming on a large screen without spending a fortune on a premium gaming rig.
