  1. Delivering on earlier promises, MSI is now shipping its GX70 and newest GX60 gaming laptops. The $1,299 and $1,399 laptops are the first of their kind to feature AMD's Radeon HD 8970M -- what AMD argues may be the pinnacle...

    Aren't those old school Radeon logo's/emblems awesome? (Well if its MSi it still looks like what ATi used to do.) Bring those back for desktop GPUs AMD!

    Though I've moved onto expecting smaller, lighter laptops, that GX60 is mighty tempting.

    Man, if only I didn't have to pay 8.75% sales tax and my credit limit didn't suck...

    For shame that my laptop can't play Diablo 3 without dropping to 30fps.

    Why combine such a powerful GPU with a low-tier APU?

    Why would you not use an i5 or i7 CPU?

    I used to have an MSI GT680, and it was overall a good experience. These would be very tempting if I wanted an AMD gaming laptop.

    Alas, I use my laptop for work a lot, and I use Linux for work -- I don't want to deal with AMD Drivers. (nvidia drivers are troublesome enough!!)

    It is meant for budget gamers, plus it is an all amd system. The A10 is a very powerful CPU.

    MSi laptop with AMD 8970m and an A10 processor 0.o

    Wow for that price thats not bad to get the 8970m, kinda need to go read some benchmarks for it. Im still rocking my MSi GT70 with the I7 and GTX 675m, love MSI laptops.

    Kinda like the idea of having the APU for non-gaming sessions and working in tangent when needed.
