    Whoa, now that is a cool idea! With the portable GPU was slightly better but man imagine having that at LAN parties!

    Or I could just build a SFF PC and nice LAN party friendly monitor and be done with it, then I can upgrade anything I want.

    This seems silly to me.

    So you need a massive thing to stick a gpu inside to play games on your laptop and in a few years down the road this thing will be a pile of trash because msi wont keep it updated driver wise and no one wants a box under their laptop...

    I can see where this might be attractive to the 'single computer' crowd.

    Instead of being stuck lugging around a 17" monster just to be able to play some games this is a smaller and lighter laptop offering which may allow some less demanding gaming (with very reduced settings) on the go while offering the ability to have single DESKTOP GPU performance while docked.

    A very interesting solution indeed.

    Make it a bit smaller and you'll have a winner

With this machine I could keep my gaming desires confined to my home and have a light and acceptable laptop for work. And it is upgradeable>??? For me this is like having my cake, and eating it too! I would love to see more companies pick up this model and go with it.
