    I would use this epic system to crush my enemies online and punish them for their insolence. The fools will cower as I hunt them down and bring upon them a reckoning of biblical proportions.

    Then as I crush my competitors souls with overpowering might, i'll cackle maniacally as I celebrate my victory, not only for defeating them, but for also winning this excellent MSI laptop.

    If given the laptop, It would be used for a tremendous ammount of video streaming (of the e-sports variety). A good deal of strategy, and FPS gaming, with a dash of RPG's.

    Im contemplating going back to school to get a degree and for a family man who focused more on his family than career money to purchase something like this is shall we say a challenge to come by.

    I guess lastly it would be used for communicating to my family via social media's and skype trying to keep in touch across the country and for my wife with her family in Canada.

    I suppose if I were to pick a specific game Ive been waiting on a better computer for, I guess it would be Arkham City with full dx11 support, or Crysis 2. Or maybe just allow my wife and I to enjoy Torchlight 2 together :)

    Cheers on another great contest!

    If I got this notebook, I'd use it for Civ V and maybe some old school Supreme Commander Forged Alliance when traveling. I'd try out the 7200 rpm drive first, especially considering the huge amount of RAM, but I would probably end up moving that to an external enclosure and replacing it with an SSD to make a fast system even faster.

    Well, I'm a graduating high school senior. I have college coming up, and I haven't really ever had a very "high power" computer... I know I don't really need one for note-taking and typical college assignments, but I would be using it for so much more than just that. I like to game, and as such I have been trying to game using my laptop's Intel HD graphics (pre HD3000, mind you). Needless to say, that hasn't been going well for me. My solution was to get a GPU for my desktop... well. I got a cheap hand-me-down GPU from a buddy (GTX 260) that lets me play my games on medium, which is leagues better than what I'm used to, and threw that in my desktop. Its been holding me over, but unfortunately the computer I threw the 260 into is my mother's. She won't let me take her computer (can't blame her), which means I'll be stuck back with integrated graphics (basically, I won't be able to game at all anymore). Aside from losing my gaming ability, I'll also have a harder time keeping in touch with my friends because we all like to game together, and the friends that play together stay together! ...especially since they're all going to different schools.

    I guess what I'm really saying is that I would use this notebook to game, do school work, keep in touch with my friends, and just enjoy using! Having something new and high powered is something I've never experienced, so it'd be an awesome experience haha. My sister would get my old laptop, which would be fine for her. She just needs a work/facebook machine. hahah

    I would use the laptop as a mobile software development workstation (Java, iOS, Android). Though first I'd swap out that HDD for an SSD, and possibly add another 4 GB of RAM. Then I'd move the Win 7 install onto the SSD, and install VMWare to run an OSX Lion instance for iOS development. At which point I could make all the other iOS developers jealous because my development laptop would be 1) faster than a Macbook, 2) cooler looking than a Macbook, 3) running a better default OS than a Macbook, 4) more fun than a Macbook, and 5) not a Macbook. It would be a head-turning setup, to be sure.

    Perhaps I'd play games on it too, if I could hook my external monitor, keyboard, and mouse up to it. But most of the time it would be a development box.

    I was always waiting for something "better" . This looks like the perfect desktop replacement. Its Ivy Bridge processor is super fast while the 670M gpu will allow to play any games. Maybe I would add a ssd like the samsung 830 series or crucial m4 (but not really necessarily).I would use it for cad/cam and multimedia. Of course, I would not be able not to play BF3,Dirt3 and formula 1 . Damn, I'm in love with this laptop! Its about $1550 on newegg.com btw

    What would I do? Well simply put just about everything! I would spend my free time gaming, my school time doing school work (and gaming), and of course when I'm sleeping it would probably be running Folding @ Home.

    I am really interested in hearing the Dynaudio speakers as well. I know its a laptop but I've heard some of the top end Dynaudio stuff at audio shows and I'm sure they know what they are doing. I am really curious to how good a laptop can sound.

    MSI is truly an amazing company, imo they make some of the best computer parts around, especially their video cards. The custom Frozr series is just mind boggling good. I own the MSI HD 7850 and could not be more happy with it!

And I would use it pretty much all the time, I don't like to use my desktop that much as I don't like being stuck in one location and enjoy moving around a lot, and I'm 6'7, which makes a 17" manageable to carry around :) Working on my Bachelor's in Computer Science right now, this would also compile code nice and fast.

    I currently have a Dell Inspiron 700m. I bought it in my first year of college, and that's about ten years ago now. I'm currently in the market for a new laptop, and have been waiting, forever, to buy a laptop. I was going to buy one four years ago, but I went to Japan. I was going to buy one last year, but I ended up getting married instead, and all my money went to that. I was going to get one this year, but everyone told me to wait for ivy bridge.

    In any case, I program, graphic design, read, write, play games, watch pr0n, and do and everything else on my 700m on at the moment. And it hurts so bad. It's not exactly a desktop replacement.

    I need a new laptop. Oh so very badly.

    I can't believe that there are still (non-budget) Core2 and AMD laptops being sold for more than $400, especially without discrete graphics.

    Woot, nice graphics hardware, really necessary to do any sort of 3D on a high-res screen, and with a laptop you only get the one display onboard, so it had better have the pixels and the graphics solution.

    I've been using my Toshiba Satellite for nearly half my life (about 8 years) and it hasn't failed me yet. It was with me when I moved to another country. It was with me when I had to learn how to quickly adapt to a new culture and language. It was with me when I was fighting my way through high school life. It was with me when I received an admissions e-mail from my dream university which had seemed so unattainable at the beginning. My laptop was there when it mattered the most. It contains my life as a teen, but it is time for a new chapter.

    The MSI GT70 seems like it's more than capable of replacing my Toshiba that has meant so much to me over the years. The GT70 will be with me when I graduate undergraduate school. The GT70 will be with me when I graduate law school. And perhaps, the GT70 will be with me when I'm arguing my first civil rights case in federal court. I invest time and care into my computer, and I can see myself going a long way with a computer of the MSI GT70's caliber.

Had to watch as she sold her transformer prime (an xmas gift), her nexus s, and her 2008 macbook along with most of the other things she owns to afford to pay bills the past 2 months. a gaming laptop would be a little overkill, but would be an awesome treat for her (and me!) pick me msi!

I'd also use it for auto cad projects that i'm currently working on, i can't imagine the graphics power this thing has for projects for my auto cad. And of course a little gaming too during breaks from work would be nice to especially with the cpu and gpu power this thing has.

    the first thing I'm going to do is gently trace it's curves with my fingertips. Once I've satisfied myself with the feel of it, I'll open it up and turn it on. At this point, I'll receive a text from my girlfriend, it'll be a text that goes unnoticed. Next, I start installing my games and other programs. Giddiness will build up inside me as I prepare to experience gaming ecstasy with Skyrim and Battlefield, the way they were meant to be played. I'll never play a game with the graphics set to low again. I turn on Battlefield first. I can't help but feel that my competitors have a handicap now, as I mow them down one by one, with no video lag to hold me back. My phone rings. My brain naturally tunes out the sound of a crappy cell phone speaker in favor of the superior sound of my notebook. I continue gaming blissfully. A half hour later, a Skype window pops up. It's the girlfriend. Apparently, not answering the phone in a reasonable amount of time is highly illegal and punishable by death. She suddenly realizes she can see me. "I thought the webcam I took from you three months ago was the only one you had!? I can't believe I've had to talk to my friends on this relic while you've got one that looks so good! Wait! You won that computer didn't you?! Fine. Call me when you get tired of it. It's bound to happen sometime." That's what she thinks. I finally own a computer capable of 3d modeling. After I beat Skyrim, I download Blender and some tutorials and start the task of making a great game even better. A long time goes by and I become great at playing games and game development. My new found skills make me rich and famous. Every time someone asks me how I got started, I say "MSI and AnandTech hooked me up." Reply

    Because I'd prefer to not do that by carrying my Twin Frozr 7850 in my backpack.

    That is all.

    Nice, this system would look nice to replace the roll my desktop plays :) and it would free up space. If I got it I would first hunt down any thing that would strain the notebook, then I would use that massive amount of ram for Photoshoping something really big :D

    Of course i'm going to also game lilke a mad man on it, and use it for college notes :)

    I'd use it to speed up the videos I am going to be making for my girlfriend's grandmother's business to help her business get more modernized so it can reach a wider range of clients.

    But of course, almost any ol' laptop can render video (albeit rather long when I try to render a 1080p project xP I think my last 10 minute video project took 2 hours to render... or was it 3? Can't remember, I took a nap)

    But of course, rendering a video project is an injustice to that video card, so expect me to get in plenty of Crysis 2, Diablo III, and Skyrim too :D

    Hey MSI,

    I would use that nice, sleek looking gaming laptop to game on the road in hotels or maybe on an occasional job site (while on break) when working out of town. Racking up wins in dota 2, killing tens of thousands of mobs in diablo 3, going for headshots in battlefield 3 and other fps'. Currently my gaming desktop stays home and I don't get to game on the road.

    I've been a MacBook Pro user since Windows XP and quite frankly... I'm no longer familiar with how to do a lot of things on a Windows PC. >o< I've been fixing my parents and friends problems of for a long time... and now I have to look up how to do the simplest things online. I would love to have a very powerful modern gaming PC to get back up to date with Windows and get back into PC gaming. Again, I haven't done any PC gaming since Windows XP was the most current Microsoft OS. Finally, I'm a teacher and a lot of the software that I need to use with my students can't be installed on a Mac... >o< so I'm stuck using a seven year old school laptop for any modern, multimedia lessons. I have to make sure everything is properly preloaded before the students come in... or I'll be waiting minutes to get things up, wasting my students' chance to learn. Reply

    I think the breakdown of what I'd do with it:

    - Game (of course), first probably being Diablo III
    - Edit photos
    - Edit video
    - Edit my website
    - Run 1 or more VM's (Ubuntu, new Windows OS, etc)

I have a work Macbook that I use for email and surfing, but this machine would help me replace my personal old custom built Pentium D rig and my netbook with an atom in it. It would also be great for my as she'll be going back to school in the Fall and we'll need to get her a laptop (if I won this, I could sell the netbook and even my desktop to buy my wife's laptop, and I could go completely portable and powerful with this beasttop!).

For almost a year now I have missed all the cool new games that have come out because I don't have a system that will play anything modern.

We visited the MSI booth at PAX East and were floored by the GT70. From that point on he has set his mind on the GT70. So with that, I wouldn't use the notebook myself, but give it to my son.

    I currently have a Asus G53SW and it is a piece of junk and need this MSI notebook.

    I went the route of going a "desktop replacement" notebook and overall I like that I did it - the problem is that this notebook is not the model I should have done this with.

    The thing locks up from overheating even with a top of the line notebook cooler and their "innovative and revolutionary air flow designs". Also the machine suffers from a CPU throttling problem which they refuse to fix.

    I am tired of Asus products that look nice but repeatedly fail. I am tired of their worthless technical support that will hang up on you if they don't feel like talking to you. I am sick of not being able to use a "gaming notebook" to game on.

    When I get this notebook as replacement I will begin by throwing the thing out of my second story of my house to my drive way like a frisbee. I will then take my truck and drive over it a few times. I will then take a crowbar and finish what is left of the unit. I will record it all and post it for MSI to use.

    The last MSI laptop (GT735) gave so much trouble I had to send it back 3 times. and their arrogance in the process was so horrendous also that I am not inclined to deal with these people.

    Their gaming laptops run extremely hot dramatically reducing the life of the laptop. These people have no clue how to put fast power hungry graphics cards in a laptop and make them last. Even with improvements now, their service was so bad I have a problem with them.

    Under warranty they had to replace Processor, and CPU fan, and then later motherboard. They reformatted the hard drive and destroyed all user data, even after telling them that the hard drive was off limits and must not be touched. They simply told me they have the right to reformat it as part of their normal processing. These people are miscreants.

    After a while I refused to send the laptop back for service because it invariably came back with more issues. When the graphics card finally failed I requested a replacement to install myself because I could not trust them this laptop. They refused to sell me a graphics card, even though it was by now no longer under warranty (hence no risk to them).

    This laptop awaits a graphics card - cannot find one to buy anywhere. There is no way in hell I would send that laptop back to them for any reason, so we are at an impasse.

    I wont even buy their motherboards because of their attitude and service. Now a free MSI laptop is a really good deal.

    Even though the game just hit its 4th year Anniversary, Age of Conan is still, without a doubt, one of the greatest graphical experiences out there in terms of MMOs and hands down has the greatest combat system to date. It is truly an amazing game that I have had the pleasure of being apart of the for the better part of that 4 years.

    If I were to win this laptop, I would use it to play Age of Conan on the road and on lunch breaks!

    Awesome looking system for sure!

    In addition, when not at work, I would use this notebook to play KOTOR online and Diablo 3 so the GPU would be useful to me as well.

    3) Take vacations with it
    4) Play games on it
    5) Sing to it
    6) Clean it
    7) Play games on it

    Step 1: Get a great computer with world beating (I apologize for NO PUNS) graphics and processing power. In this way, the maps I wish to create showing my most recent conquests can be shown in full live glory as my armies spread like ants across the globe. the MSI system listed above would be more than adequate to show my minions our progress remotely.

    Step 2:

    Step 3: Profit.

    As you can see, this computer is a necessary part of the process, and you would be remiss to pass up such an opportunity to be on the Supreme Overlord's "Nice" list.

    This MSI machine would be a statement. It would be something I would carry with me as a declaration of my entertainment independence. I am not a drone, a slave the to corporate hardware encased in black. Nor am I a hipster, encased in white plastic shinny skinny jeans. I love gaming, and my hardware should love games, too.

    I am an avid gamer, and old school one at that. Mangar's Mallet rolls off my finger tips as easily as they construct complex healing macros for Azeroth deployment. Rails and Rockets fly from my mouse as precisely as my aim for my last Peggle ball.

    A place for two deaths. A Radiant Goldbox for Skyrim. A Notebook for a Gamer.

    WHAT WOULDN'T I DO?

    I could take over the world, first. I think I'd do that first. I'd probably use it to align all my forces quickly and effortlessly around all the choke-points around World Capitals, then proceed to cinch-tight the ties that bind them, those ties being my forces, and I'd compel the local governments in the areas to bow before me and my MSI laptop. They would. Mostly because of the laptop.

    Then, I'd probably go about trying to find the cure for cancer with it. Then next, AIDS. Then, I'd use it to determine how the human brain works, and see if I couldn't unlock all of it's secrets. I'd then build a webpage telling of my exploits throughout the world.

    But mostly, I think I'd show off Diablo 3 to all my friends and say "DEAR SWEET LORD THIS THING TOOK OVER THE WORLD ABOUT TWO DAYS AGO AND STILL HAS ROOM FOR MORE."

    "Dude, you won that?"

    "Yea, MSI rules, huh?"

    The end.
