We have some pretty exciting news now for all you hardcore PC gamers out there, as MSI has just launched its new GX780 and GT780R gaming laptops, which both come with a rather impressive SteelSeries multicolor backlit keyboard and a 17.3-inch full HD display.

As Donald Melanson over at engadget.com notes, both the GX780 and GT780R laptops come with the 2nd-generation 2GHz Intel Core i7 2630QM processor with support for Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which boosts the device’s core clock speed and overall performance.

Both models come with the latest NVIDIA graphics, with the GX780 sporting the NVIDIA GeForce GT555M with 1GB of DDR5 VRAM and the higher-end GT780R boasting the GeForce GTX 560M with 1.5GB of GDDR5 RAM. They also come with MSI’s Turbo Drive Engine Technology.

The Turbo Drive Engine technology will provide a boost in the device’s graphics performance, in order to accelerate video decoding. Meanwhile, the SteelSeries keyboard features 5 programmable modes that allow users to sync both the rhythm and color to suit the game they are playing.

Of course, no gaming experience would be complete without having some pretty awesome audio, and the MSI GX780 and GT780R laptops definitely won’t disappoint in that department. Both models include Dynaudio speakers, a built-in subwoofer and THX TruStudio PRO.

As for pricing and availability, the GX780 has an MSRP of $1.549.99, while the GT780R has an MSRP of $1,749.99. Both models will be available to purchase from Amazon.com and Newegg.com. Would you buy either of these gaming laptops?
