17.3-incher with Geforce GTX 570M graphics
MSI has rolled out yet another notebook that will be a part of its GT gaming lineup, the 17.3-inch full HD GT780DX notebook. Featuring Intel's Core i7-2630QM CPU and Nvidia's Geforce GTX 570M graphics, this one surely packs a nice gaming punch.

The spec list includes noted Intel Core i7-2630QM 2.0GHz CPU and Nvidia's Geforce GTX 570M 1.5GB graphics card as well as up to 16GB of memory, SSD+HDD in various options depending on the SKU and DVD or Blu-ray optical drive. As far as the rest of the specs are concerned, you'll get a card reader, 720p webcam, Gigabit LAN, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output and a 9-cell battery that should keep it going for at least a while when unplugged.

Of course, you are looking at a rather large and heavy notebook measuring at 428x288x55mm and weighing in at 3.9kg. MSI strapped this one with Dynaudio's 2.1-channel sound system and its own praised keyboard that was developed together with Steelseries.

A quick look at the price search engine revealed one SKU that was selling in the Netherlands for €1999.

Intel has faster CPUs than AMD but their graphics cards are as fast as Nvidia's.

Well all right. Bring on the Asus G75. It should have a matte full HD screen, a fixed keyboard (larger zero on the num pad and shorter shift key), and frickin' optimus with the 570M.

Then they can start competing on price with MSI and both get down to more realistic prices. $1500.

PS Nobody needs a blu-ray 'burner' in a laptop. Player is sufficient.

Sager/Clevo is the way to go.

Got an NP8150 with an i7-2630QM, HD 6990M, 750GB HDD @ 7200RPM, 12GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz for ~2,100USD since I have to ship it to Asia and all.

Definitely cheaper than ASUS and MSI equivalents, and definitely waaay cheaper than AlienWare!
