One version of the GS70 is fitted with a 128GB mSATA SSD and a 750GB hard disk, while a second version uses two 128GB SSDs in Raid 0 and a 1TB hard drive. Both editions of the notebook will also have Killer E2200 networking and Bluetooth, four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI-out, a 720p webcam, SteelSeries full color backlit keys with anti-ghosting, and a memory card reader.
