The Wallpaper TV, Dolby Atmos sound bars, 6 Series, 8 Series, C-series OLED Smart 4K UHD TV

The 2016 units were stunning. So are the 2017 models. Theis is the W-series "Signature" Edition which is so thin it basically sticks to the wall. Despite the lack of body it actually costs a lot more. But at least it comes with an amazing, $1,700 Dolby Atmos soundbar with two Height channels.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
