There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Laptop Magazine says:

These days the question with gaming laptops isn't how low you can go, but how thin. The $1,999 MSI GS70 offers good overall performance, solid battery life, and a lovely 1080p display in a svelte design. However, some beefier rigs outclass this one in terms of graphics and audio performance. ... While it's debatable that any 17-inch notebook should be considered portable, gamers or creative professionals who want a notebook that's both powerful and won't break their back (or wallet) will find the MSI GS70 a solid choice.
