Yeah that bothered me a bit, but I saw on this site http://www.gentechpc.com/config.asp?config_id=GS60-Ghost-003 you can pre order it with two 128ssd, 1tbhdd for about 1800. I'm thinking that 2200 might start with the 3k screen not a regular 1080p. I really want this thing and will be waiting for it, as I may be doing a lot of traveling.

why are laptops so damn expensive? it should be the other way around. I guess im the odd one out but the most exciting laptop for me at the moment is the sub $240/£200 acer c720 just because its haswell x86, got 9hrs of battery life, is practically disposable, you can fling it in a bag and shove linux on and play some decent little steam games and not care too much about breaking it or losing it.

for a power user you could actually take extremely similar to laptop parts and build your own ultra SFF with a tablet type screen and save $1,000

but then again, for gaming .. why not just get a moderate laptop, turn down the settings and with the HUGE amount of money saved build a proper gaming pc?

yea.. this is nice but pointless and too expensive for many.

You really don't get what you're talking about do you? The CPUs and GPUs in laptops are not the same as desktop ones; they have to tolerate higher heat and use less power. There's an increase in cost doing that. Hence why laptops are more expensive.

But, go on and show us how you would make your own laptop that weighs 6lbs or less and is as mobile. rolleyes.gif

Not to mention for someone like me who may be in a hotel for 3-4 days a week for three weeks at a clip my desktop is not going to do me much. With these you get an extremely mobile offering that also can play recent/new games at decent settings. I have no problem playing on medium/high mix but I don't want to play on all low. And without at least a 750m lvl I doubt you are even getting a good experience at low on anything recent.

The 860m Should be able to run something like Metro last light at or near high settings. That's awesome for a laptop.

Not sure if this has been said in the thread already ,but it has been almost officialy confirmed *up for preorder at LINK (from a very popular german etailer) that this will have core i5/i7 cpu and GTX 860M 2GB gddr 5 graphics card (same as desktop 750 ti with a bit lower clock speed).

i am aware of this, i was talking more about an ultra SFF build with similar specs.. and fyi you can actually run mobile GPU's in standard mobo's with adapters. It has been done. But yea thanks for the insult thumb.gif

You seemed to have concentrated on that rather than anything else (just because you enjoy being condescending) like the fact its ridiculously expensive and most people wont need a massively beefy gpu in a laptop for heat + noise and low battery life. Of course if you spend your life in a hotel.. maybe rolleyes.gif

I was going to comment, but honestly I don't have a dog in this fight. I don't game anymore (not in any consistent amount of time anyway), so i much prefer the space saving, free-roaming, effortless transporting of my ThinkPad to the outlandish desktops I've built for gaming. i7 haswell, excellent battery life, decent speakers (for streaming anyway), and blissful touchscreen experience are much abliged. And when 3.xx lbs is too bulky to carry, I'll suffice on a Miix 2 8.

Sorry...it just came off like you thought you knew better in your first post. But ultimately I think you're still missing the point. If you want something "mobile" you don't get a desktop or even something as small and mobile as a Utilite or Mintbox...this kind of falls into the reason that Dell's little experiment called the XPS M2010 was pretty much a failure. It was a "mobile desktop" more than a laptop and thus really had a very limited consumer base. Hell, you have Dell messing around with an 18inch tablet which is actually fairly cool...but people aren't going to buy it because it's just too different from the norms. So while there's a small portion that will do something like you suggest....there are far more people who will pay for this Razer.

However, I'm actually curious though if one could make a 4.5lbs or less .7 inch ultra SFF with a screen...

Some interesting info about the new PRO version of the MSI GS60...


MSI GS60 Ghost Pro:
http://www.ecoustics.com/reviews/msi-gs60-ghost-pro/
Quote:
You’re looking at the "world’s lightest gaming notebook." At least that’s what gaming hardware vendor MSI claims, pegging its brand new GS60 Ghost Pro at around four pounds. I had the chance to play around with a prototype unit of the company’s latest thin and light gaming laptop – the same one that I saw, but couldn’t touch, at this year’s CES.

"But, MSI already released its GS60 Ghost," you say? You’re right, the company just launched its first 15.6-inch thin and light gaming laptop, the GS60 Ghost, packed with an FHD display and Nvidia’s latest 800M series GPUs. But remember: MSI hinted during CES that this machine could go as sharp as a 3K resolution at launch.

Today, the GS60 Ghost earns the "Pro" moniker, thanks to a 2880 x 1620 WQHD panel. Behind that super sharp screen on the model that I tested out is an Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M with 6GB of GDDR5 RAM. Backing up that beefy video card are Intel’s quad-core, 2.4GHz Core i7-4700HQ and 16GB of DDR3 RAM at 1600MHz.

Between those guts and a 128GB SSD-1TB HDD storage combo, I’m not at all surprised that MSI projects that this beast will cost around $2,000 (about £1,194, AU$2,128) upon release later this April or in early May. And the company may even boost the available storage and RAM capacity. That might be overkill.
