PC vendor MSI has unveiled a light new gaming laptop at International CES 2014, weighing just over 3lbs.

The 15-inch concept notebook (pictured) was showcased to Laptopmag and features a 3K (2,880x1,620 resolution) display and two mSATA drives. 

MSI also presented its latest notebooks including some upcoming models, which will allow users to remap any of the keyboard's keys to any other key (including the infamous Windows button), reports Andandtech. It will be able to save separate profiles for different games.

The existing branding for MSI’s notebooks is also being phased out. The GT, GS, GE, GP and GX series will become the GT Devastator, GS Stealth, GE Apache, GP Leopard and GX Destroyer respectively. 

Laptop designs will be revised with thinner and lighter casing in the future.

Finally, MSI revealed the AG240 all-in-one computer and 24-inch touchscreen HD monitor with 'flicker-free' technology. Its inside will be similar to the MSI AG2712A and it will feature built-in speakers, microphone and webcam.

The AG240 also has an HDMI input so gamers can connect to a console like the Xbox One and use it as a screen for that.

Tom's Guide reports the AG240 will be priced less than the cost of the AG2712A ($1,600) and will launch later this year.
