The MSI posted a minimum framerate of 42fps at its native resolution of 1,680 x 1,050 - virtually identical to the G60Vx, despite the fact the latter has a lower resolution panel.

gaming never really is meant to be for laptops. looking at that spec and its price. my 2 year old desktop can beat it. 2 years ago, i spent £1000 on my desktop with the quad core, 4GB RAM and 8800GTX and a 22inch monitor. 2 years is a LONG time in technology and yet 2 years later, the gaming laptop is still a lowly dual core, it's still a cut-down version of 8800GTX, it's still slower.
get a desktop, or a shuttle if you want to go to lanparties. along with a netbook/small laptop for portable purposes.

I just want a powerful all around laptop, and any gaming I can throw in would be fantastic.
