Labels like the worlds thinnest and lightest dont seem to last for long in the tech industry. But MSI Computer has claimed that title for a nanosecond with the announcement of its GS70, the worlds thinnest and lightest 17-inch portable gaming laptop.

The company says the computer can play the most demanding games on the road. The machine is less than 1-inch thick and weighs 5.7 pounds. It uses the Haswell-based 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M graphics chip, Killer DoubleShot networking, and a SteelSeries backlit keyboard with anti-ghosting keys. It can display images in high-definition 1920 x 1080 resolution, and it has a 2.1 speaker system with an integrated subwoofer. It has Sound Blaster Cinema software that is capable of delivering the quality of 5.1 surround sound from the 2.1 speakers. It comes with 16 gigabytes of DDR3L memory, 4 USB 3.0 ports, 3 audio jacks, and a 720p HD webcam. It is housed in a brushed aluminum chassis.

Computer peripheral maker Razer recently claimed the title of having the thinnest gaming notebook, the Razer Blade, back in May. But that one had a 14-inch screen.

The GS70 can drive up to three external displays via HDMI and mDP ports. It can also deliver 4K resolution output. The laptop has dual fans and a thermal solution that pulls heat from the top side of the laptop and dissipates it at a 45-degree upward angle.
