which was then first followed by an introduction GT80 18-inch featuring Cherry mechanical keyboard, with an SLI high-efficiency models created just a year after GT72.

The top of the notebook A side, same as GT72,
has a car shape appearance. Brush metal and aesthetic lines with a laser dragon engraving are certain angles really dragon-looking.
After turning the machine on, dragon’s right eye glows LED-white. Moreover, the word “msi” is without lightening.
In addition to MSI 29 Anniversary Edition, there is a carton sleeve included in the bundle, which differentiates this notebook from others.
Looking back into 2003 and MSI overclocking motherboard, 2006 and MSI netbooks and GX600 notebook.
