    MSI GS73VR

    I picked up an MSI GS73VR yesterday afternoon hoping to replace the desktop in my sig (i5 2500k @ 4ghz, 16gb ram, 970). My impressions so far: Very thin and good looking. I initially hated the font they used on the keyboard but after disabling the stock rainbow colored keyboard backlighting...
