I just got a P34G and was thinking if it were a 17" it would be more amazing. Only gripe with the X7 is the TN screen.

So before you guys posted these other thoughts, I was talking with a friend and he recommended against the X7. I took his words and he recommended I order this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152397

So thats what I ordered. I noticed this morning that it is now out of stock, could I have bought the last one from Newegg?

Also, Its only about 2 lbs. heavier than the X7, so I dont think it will be a massive increase.

Its literally 2 and a half times thicker than the X7, so while it may *only* be 2 lbs heavier (which is a 33% increase) it will be a lot less portable.

I hope MSI's build quality has improved, as it used to be once of its largest achilles heels

Thickness doesn't really matter to me, only weight.

Also the reason my friend told me to stay away from the X7 is because he stated that SLI was a gimick in a laptop and to run some modern games I would need a better single GPU instead of 2 less powerful GPU's

I would tell your friend to do his research. This isnt 1995 where we have to pencil mod cards together and have buggy software support.

I have only run into one game that didnt support SLI and that was Sniper Elite Nazi zombie army 2, of which I could import the profile from the first game as they are essentially the same.

with my 755m stock I pull ahead of a 770m. Overclocked its more so (not to say the 770m cant overclock)

So what are you guys saying, cancel this order and wait for the X7 to be off backorder? I already have a shipping label, how would this work with Newegg?

EDIT: Well, I just looked and I cant return it now> I have to go through with it

You could refuse the shipment and it would go back to newegg and they would refund you.

My view towards SLi is if a game doesn't support it, the game probably doesn't need it. Battlefield 4 will support it fantastically. Doom 3 not so much. I think you can see where i'm going with this.

Even with Doom 3, I max it with sikkmod on one 755m anyways, a 765m should have little to no issues lol

On paper the MSI unit is great, but they have been notorious for not having the greatest of build quality for the money.

I cant comment on the X7 though, never knew of that one so I dont know anything about it
