The machine's keyboard is designed with gamers in mind, replacing the left Windows key with a function modifier and enlarging the Ctrl and Alt keys. Unlike most notebook keyboards, the GX780's supports up to 10 simultaneous commands -- though this is limited to a handful of keys commonly used in games. It also features multiple backlighting options and is said to be more durable than what you'd find on other notebooks, but it's not clear how this is achieved.
MSI says it partnered up with Creative and Dynaudio to find the ideal hardware and placement for the GX780's 2.1 sound system. Other specs include a Blu-ray player, an HD webcam (30fps@720p), two USB 3.0 and three USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port, VGA and HDMI 1.4 outputs, gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, a multi-card reader, a nine-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate.
