    Peripherals designed for extreme gaming
    SteelSeries professional gaming keyboard:

Not only is it twice as durable as traditional keyboards and the responsiveness of the keys like that of desktop computers, the Windows start key has been relocated to the right side of the keyboard to greatly reduce the likelihood that you're going to hit it accidently in the heat of battle.

    Professional Killer Gaming Networking:

In addition, the embedded power amplifying chip (AMP) ensures top-quality stereo sound in high-end earphones, so you can hear dialog with comrades-in-arms more clearly and what's happening around you in the game and from which direction. The audio solution is ideal for serious gamers and music lovers alike.

    "the gaming laptop", "the destroyer", "breakthroughs in cutting-edge gaming"... and CPU in level of i3 ULV series.
    no wonder that some investors start to sue for overhyped marketing. I just wonder why clients do not do the same.

    The CPU will bottleneck the GPU, but there's sacrifices to be made at such a low price point...
    Is almost certainly true.

    After using 2 PCs with some significant bottlneck (single core athlon with 4650 GDDR3, Phenom II with 6950 unlocked) I shudder each time I see things such as this.

    So, what is the price for the 17" model?

    Also, we need some review to that M290X videocard

    EDIT:
    It seems that the M290X is just a rebrand of the 7970M or 8970M GPU, with very little GPU speed bump. That's all.
    Shame on you AMD for deceiving again and again!

    I like it though I wish they put the ability to increase BCLK and vcore in the BIOS because that would mean I could OC it for up to 30% more speed if the cooling and battery held up.

    somebody should make a "thin" AMD gaming laptop.

    all AMD gaming laptops are so fat they look like the laptops from the 90's

    weren't laptops made to be portable?

    They are fat because they need better cooling, and bigger battery. Is only natural.
    Besides those are DRS (Desktop Replacement System), not real laptops.
    If you want just to use FB, mail or play crappy games, you can always use your phone or a tablet.
     
    LeonVolcove says thanks.
