You may have already heard about MSI's crazy Titan GT80 gaming notebook, which has a Cherry MX mechanical keyboard built in. Scott got up close to the system at CES this week, and he was able to snap some pictures.
In addition to its backlit MX brown keyboard, the system features an 18.4" 1080p display, a Core i7-4980HQ processor, dual GeForce GTX 980M graphics cards, room for up to four M.2 SSDs in a RAID config, additional space for a 7,200-RPM mechanical hard drive, and a Killer N1525 802.11ac Wi-Fi controller.
The backlit keyboard sits at the front of the system's chassis, so MSI has positioned the touchpad next to it. As you can see in the photo above, the touchpad doubles as a numeric keypad—in case you want to puncuate your mobile gaming sessions with some Excel jockeying.
Last we heard, pricing for the Titan GT80 was supposed to start at $3,299.
