I guess I should have stated where my opinion was coming from, its quite a feat to say the least though thumb.gif

Yes I really like it.

This is not the first one I am seeing though. They had one that only had an i5 and onboard video card.

I am having a hard time believing this has anything more than iris pro in it.

A full fledged 760 and it uses a power brick?

Since it's a bga socket i5 or i7 doesn't that mean it has to be iris pro?

The Nvidia Rep wouldn't be there if it didn't have an Nvidia GPU of some sort in there...

I see you saw my reddit thread.

Yeah I too am not entirely convinced it is a full fledged 760 but Paul definitely knows his stuff and he called it a 760 so I'm thinking maybe its just severely underclocked.

I guess you could fit a desktop 760 in there. There are better mobile GPUs than a 760m that could be used, like the 860m or 870/880m. Why would you promote a new product with last years hardware?


Can anyone explain to me why MSI needs our laptops back on top of the wholesale price they're already more or less recouping from us with their GT72(s)/GT80(s) trade in program? MSI isn't a company you can trust!

If true about GTX 760, that's pretty damn impressive... Especially the variant with an i7.

I hope they didn't make the same mistake they did with the Brix Pro.

Manufacturers like Gigabyte, Asus and MSI have in-house lines for both boards and GPUs. They even make laptops, some of them with completely soldered components (i.e. custom everything outside the chips and prob. the SSD drive).

I don't see why "custom-either" sounds more expensive than the average, and ITX boards are already a niche.

Mobile GPUs have standardization

I would rather have the ability to upgrade in the future, than be locked to a platform and forced to purchase the next gen entirely

That looks like a true Steambox if using an actual full fledged 760.
