MSI is coming out with some new lightweight gaming laptops.

A part of the company's Leopard series, the gaming laptop feature a 120Hz 5ms screen, a NVMe M.2 solid state drive that MSI claims breaks the current bandwidth limitation, and an updated SteelSeries RGB keyboard with Silver Lining print.  The line also includes an Intel 7th Generation KabyLake processor, one stick of 16GB DDR4 RAM (upgradeable to 32GB), and up to a GeForce GTX1060 graphics card.

The new laptops in MSI's upgraded GP62X and GP72X Leopard lines also come equipped with SteelSeries RGB keyboards that include SteelSeries Engine 3 support.  Using the engine, 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 GP X series also comes with MSI’s new Cooler Boost 4.  With two fans, six separate heat pipes dedicated to the CPU and GPU, and a more than 20 percent increase in airflow, MSI calls the Cooler Boost 4 "the most advanced heat pipe design in a gaming notebook."
