For connectivity, the notebook includes a USB port, infra-red port and a port bar connector that includes two PS/2 ports, a parallel connection, a serial connector and an external monitor plug.

The notebook runs on a Li-Ion batter with two hours operating life.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
