Harness the full performance potential of the Gen 3.0 SSD through the optimization of the hardware and software outputting extreme read speeds up to 2200MB/s, 5x faster than SATA3 SSD's.

Heat is the most original element on earth. It's pure physics that more energy will generate more heat. Cooling is therefore a knotty task to tackle with. MSI exclusive Cooler Boost 3 technology creates dual thermal modules internally by allocating dedicated heat pipes for GPU and CPU. One click on the fan boost button, multiple heat pipes and dual fans actively and effectively push heat out of the system, making the cooling design of this model the highest level of its kind.

The Cooler Boost 3 dual cooling system is developed especially for the next generation extreme mobile processors. Besides making sure your system stays within thermal limits at all times during regular use, users can manually boost the cooling system by a simple key, located to the left side of the keyboard. This will maximize thermal exhaustion and ensure a chilly system even during those marathon gaming sessions. Regardless of how demanding the environment is, your notebook stays quiet and cool.

With components such as the Intel Core i7 Extreme CPUs and NVIDIA GTX 900M series graphics, the cooling is vital for performance, Cooler Boost 3 lowers CPU temperatures with ~8-10°C, and GPU temperatures ~4-5°C. With this new cooling solution, you will see not only lower temperatures than the competition can offer, but also lower total noise levels without the need for bulky coolers.
The exclusive MSI "SHIFT" technology pushes system to the extreme while minimizing noise and temperature. Switch between three profiles "Sport," "Comfort," and "Green" to reach balance between system performance and comfortable user experience.

The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 970M Series brings extreme, next-generation graphics performance to serious gaming notebooks. As the first graphics solution to reach a score over 9,000 in 3DMark 11, the GeForce GTX 970M delivers extremely fast and fluid gameplay at the highest settings and resolutions in a lightweight and portable design.

It works as good as it looks.

The Ghost Pro is a formidable ultrabook.

I bought this laptop primarily for business use. It offered far better value for money over an equivalent Dell/Lenovo/HP laptop. I wanted a GTX 970m and I needed the weight to be around 2KG. This beauty fit the bill perfectly - As an added bonus, it has a 15.6" 4K screen - It's glorious! The only downside is that it's glossy, not matte. So if you're in a bright room and you've got something dark on the screen, all your see is your own reflection.

Most laptops of this stature usually have cooling issues, cue HP Spectre and Dell XPS 15. This computer suffers less at the hands of that fate due to its stellar dual-fan cooling system. It has one for CPU & one for GPU. Cleverly, it sucks air in from the bottom and top - through the speaker grille.

To put it simply, the cooling system works. I've never really encountered heavy throttling. The CPU keeps to around around 3.0-3.2GHz under load, plus there's some (a little) overhead to overclock the GPU using NV Inspector.

There are a couple of downsides to this laptop:

One is the tracking pad. Now, I may be prejudice here, but I hate all tracking pads. I feel this one is especially bad because there are no physical buttons to press. I was used to a HP laptop that had three buttons. I now end up right clicking everything due to my hand placement. I need to think and ensure my fingers are in the right position before clicking - Which I feel is bad design.

Two is all of the extra-added MSI software. Yes, I understand that I need it to use certain features; keyboard back-lighting, MSI TrueColour and the Nihimic DSP, etc. But I feel that there are other features that you don't quite need it for. The whole 'MSI Shift' thing seems like a bit of a waste of RAM. It just looks like different Windows Power Profiles [Eco, Normal, Boost]. Boost isn't really 'Boost' at all, it's just the 'High Performance' power profile with a taskbar icon.

The only real bit of bundled software I appreciate is 'TrueColour' MSI TrueColour has a 'Blue Reduction' mode, which is similar to F.lux. Both of which are invaluble at night time, or just for sitting in front of the computer for long periods. It helps reduce fatigue, immeasurably.

However, one bit of software that I have to use regularly - but utterly deplore - is the Nihimic DSP. That software does make a good difference to 'colour' the sound without the need for tinkering around with an EQ. But the software and implementation is invariably broken. For instance, there are 3 profiles - Music, Games, Movies. Music is unselectable, it simply doesn't work. Why would they ship software in that state, anyone? Ubisoft?

The otherdownside of having a DSP is this - When I plug in my headphones I get a pop-up asking me to make a choice of what has been connected, fair enough. However even though I choose correctly the sound will still be produced through the speakers and my headphones make nothing but a hissing/crunching noise. You can't simply plug headphones in whilst music or a program is running. If you do, you need to close the program down and re-load it. This is due to the fact Nihimic/whomever has decided the best way to implement this software is to change over your Windows Playback Device to their proprietary/digital I/O. Again, I feel this is bad design or just poor implementation - Take your pick. I may just uninstall the software.

If this laptop came without all of the extra software/bloatware, had a more robust tracking pad and had a matte screen it would be a 10/10 - It is truly a great high performance laptop with some poor design choices thrown in the mix.

Points gained for:
4K Monitor is great; and games still look great at 1080.
High performance with a great cooling system.
Keyboard backlight is cool and works very well.
It's as light as an ultrabook: 2KG.
MSI TrueColour is a nice touch.

Points reduced for:
Poor design of tracking pad; there are no physical buttons.
Bloatware/proprietary programs & Nihimic DSP SW is buggy.
Glossy screen.

Superb slim quality product that hides its true performance

Ok, im not a frequent laptop gamer (yet), i am however a 6+hr a day user who wanted a machine that would give me 5-6 yrs future-proof reliable usage. The case is quality brushed aluminium, very little flex in the screen or chassis. The 4k screen works superbly with windows 10, no blurring or colour problems seen so far. I have changed to backlit key colours to white and blue as im not keen on showing off its discrete gaming pedigree :-) Setup was smooth after a small hiccup with msi online registration, transfered my chrome bookmarks and apps from my old Sony in seconds. I was amazed at how Assasins Creed looks and played on this little fella...better than my xboxone!! If you want compact, discreet, quality and performance then this is the choice for you.
