Hey'la fellas. I'm about to buy new notebook and this one caught my eye and my wallet tells me to piss off but I can handle this cost.
http://www.msi.com/product/nb/GE70-2QE-Apache-Pro.html#hero-overviewBUT with win7 [cause it's better, right?] and 8GB RAM.
I watched previews and this sound really great, what's your opinion? Or maybe you know some other better notebook for this price? Please some feedback Happy

Thanks in advance.

Re: What do you think about this notebook?

You call this kind of mobile monster an notebook? Tongue
It's fine Laptop, very powerful, but prepare yourself for annoying cooling system noises it will make while playing games on it and the fans will be overclocked on full speed Tongue
It's kind of machine you cant use at full power in presence of some person, let's say your gf sleeps near you Happy
Whats the price for this model, up to 4000 PLN or lower ?

3 years you say?
Well I think it will serve him a lot more, I heard that new Direct X will reduce Power and increase FPS by even 60% or so Tongue

so soon you would have few more years to play all kind of games on it at full gfx I think Happy

I might sound now like a noob but hell... ShaderModel is 5.0 on this model and there's DirectX 11 in specifications, when DirectX12 will be released that does mean I can have it too or DirectX 11 only? Tongue

I think you should go for an old fashioned wide ruled paper notebook :)

Just kidding, it looks very good, at least Tongue

I can't use PC while being on the road or in the train, etc., I need it to be mobile. That's why I need a notebook.
