Innovation & Design Award
MSI GS30 2M Shadow - the first modern laptop with external video card that was in our test lab. In this model, the developers wanted to combine the power of MSI gaming notebook and compactness of the classic "typewriter" - and this experiment, perhaps, should be considered successful. Due to the powerful quad-core processor, this model did not have a chance to get the title ultrabook, but let's be honest, from this GS30 2M only wins
Above Avarage (3.5/5)
MSI's GS30 is een snelle laptop, die dankzij de bijgeleverde externe videokaart dezelfde games aankan als veel desktop-pc's en daarmee een mooie vervanger voor twee losse systemen kan zijn

The concept of leaving the GamingDock at home, waiting for the return of the MSI GS30 Shadow is very appealing. Once the laptop slides into place and the GTX 980 fires into life you are sure to be impressed by the gaming performance that is on tap.

De MSI GS30 is op zichzelf al een hele bijzondere laptop. Een 13,3 inch laptop met een gewicht van slechts 1,3 kilo en toch voorzien van mooie specificaties. Het dock is natuurlijk ook heel erg bijzonder. Hierdoor heb je de beschikking over heel veel grafische kracht wanneer je niet onderweg bent.
