We live in a wonderful world where you can do hardcore PC gaming literally anywhere. Thanks to powerful laptops, you can play modern PC games in such places as a park, at a kitchen table, or coffee shop. Unfortunately, many of these gaming laptops are hardly portable -- they can be quite heavy and bulky. Luckily, there are thinner and lighter models nowadays.

Today, MSI launches some new fairly svelte gaming notebooks -- the GP62X and GP72X Leopard Pro Series. These machines feature modern specifications, such as Kaby Lake processors, DDR4, and NVMe storage drives. Not to mention, they are very attractive -- the RGB backlit keyboard looks quite lovely.

"Screen tearing and jitters are a thing of the past with the all new full HD 120Hz panel with 5ms response time. The ultra-fast refresh rate lets you react instantly to your game, giving you a true MSI gaming experience. The GP62X and GP72X Leopard series gaming laptops use a NVMe solid state drive so gamers can experience full performance potential of the latest SSD technology with extreme read speeds up to 2,200MB/s. The line includes an Intel 7th Generation KabyLake processor, one stick of 16GB DDR4 RAM (upgradeable to 32GB) and up to a GeForce GTX1060 graphics card," says MSI.

The company further explains that it "upgraded the GP62X and GP72X Leopard line with the brightest RGB keyboard by SteelSeries including SteelSeries Engine 3 support. Using SteelSeries Engine 3, gamers can easily personalize their playing style by customizing each key and changing the keyboard’s backlight color. It also includes SteelSeries’ GameSense, which changes the color of the keyboard according to in-game action. The first titles to support GameSense are Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Minecraft. With better response, tactile feedback and support for multi-key inputs, the keyboard is primed to help gamers take full command over gaming missions."
