The two laptops go by the same name, GT60, and are just ever so slightly different from one another, with […]

MSI-AE2420-3D-Thumb

An all-in-one multi-touch desktop that can display 3D video would be a first. Bolstering that with THX TruStudio Pro audio and USB 3.0 is a little nuts, but that’s what MSI has done with the AE2420 3D.
