so by your own link you are saying its an upgraded 460 (10~15% faster) which is slower than the 485 and 6970 by a lot. its just an average gaming laptop gpu.

Not really, compared to the other options, it's actually a pretty fast card. Besides, seeing a GTX 485m in a laptop is very rare, not even Alienware ships them, you can only see them in desktop replcement Sagers which usually carry desktop CPU's and have a VERY short battery life.

For the price, and what it includes, AND the backlit keyboard, I think it's a pretty nice choice. Also, you're forgetting that the ATI HD 6970m won't give you CUDA, which can be very useful for people who use heavy applications for engineering, simulations, etc.

well seeing how you can get the sager NP8130 for right under 1200 with the same video card i dont see the hype.

sager offers laptops with the 6970 (faster than the 560M) for LESS than the MSI you are linking so i dont see the big deal about it. sure, the backlit keyboard is a plus but thats about it and who cares about cuda for a laptop.

i personally own 2 "gaming" laptops and read up on them alot. the 560M is now your new standard gaming card in laptops. its nothing special, just your average card for something with "gaming" put in the title of it.
