    hmm not to sure about msi laptops i got myself a ge620dx a few months ago now its in the hospital for a heatsink and hard drive transplant :c the 555m goes up to 98c when gaming..
    But other then that it was at a good price point of 1k USD for an i7 and 8gb ram and 2gb gpu and 650GB hdd.. the later revision had full hd 1080p.

    instead of buying a 1900 dollar laptop why not invest in a proper desk to put a pc on, if you dont have room for a PC how do you fit in the room? :p boggles the mind....

    yea, but if i travel a lot (work or whatever reason)... then it would be nice to game like in desktop with gtx670 (anything maxed out on 1080p) and still carry around that device no mater that this laptop will weight like 2 normal laptops.

    to bad that 15.6 models wont have no spacce for extra hdd's (ssd's - of course)

    Awesome looking like the 15.6"


    Some of us are on the move and can't bring along a desktop, but I would agree with you.

    Back in my college days i could only afford one PC (Actually i couldn't it was a gift) so i made it was a laptop. Also i shared a room with my brother, yep two beds in one room and we had to share a desk. No space for two desktops on that but was perfect for two laptops.

    I'll admit if you can afford a $1900 laptop you are probably not shacking up not sharing your desk.

    no Thunderbolt? fail.

    Too bad no thunderbolt too from msi. None of the top 3 brands has thunderbolt this year, so sad.
