  • MSI's new gaming laptop with i7 and 5870 for only $1,400

    Engadget just posted about a new MSI laptop they are releasing with a very game worthy setup including 1.6GHz Core i7-720QM (so mobile version, not desktop version) and a 5870. Pretty powerful stuff for a laptop. But what really caught my eye was the price. At MSRP of $1,400, it would be an awesome laptop for you gamers on the go. And chances are the street price on it will be much lower.

    Only downside................ what were they thinking with the red coloring???
    Oh well, some folks will like it. :row__640:

    What's the idle and load temps on that thing?

    How hot the thing gets (CPU and chipset) would be my biggest concern, right next to battery life.
