The GT783R packs in a dual hard drive setup in RAID 0 configurations where as the GT783 Limited Edition bundles an SSD as well for quicker boot times. Just like their previous ‘G-series’ notebooks, the new series packs in MSI’s Turbo Drive technology to overclock the GPU and CPU, a backlit keyboard designed by SteelSeries, MSI’s Cooler Boost technology and Dynaudio speakers with THX Surround Sound.

The GT783 Limited Edition will be bundled with Battlefield 3, SteelSeries Siberia V2 headset, MSI backpack, and SteelSeries Kinzu gaming mouse and mouse pad.
