Company claims the GT80 Titan is the “world’s slimmest and lightest 18-inch gaming laptop.”

MSI has unveiled the first gaming laptop to include a mechanical keyboard.

The GT80 Titan feautres a SteelSeries keyboard with Cherry Brown MX switches for increased speed and accuracy, as well as that signature sound of mechanical keys being pressed. The laptop also lets users save keyboard settings through the SteelSeries Engine with CloudSync.

In addition to being the first of its kind to include a mechanical keyboard, MSI also claims that the GT80 Titan is the world’s slimmest and lightest 18-inch gaming laptop, stating that it is “17% thinner and 22% lighter than its closest competitor.” The design is admittedly odd, but there are some compromises to be made when including a mechanical keyboard on a laptop meant to run graphically intensive video games.

Pricing, availability, and configuration options for the MSI GT80 Titan have yet to be announced.
