It's an attractive laptop, no doubt, and the GPU is solid, but not quite high-end. How loud does it get at full load?

So these gaming machines are trying to steal market from the sleek-loving Apple crowd. I think this is a good thing. Now it's time for a ultra-book-sized-gaming-laptop SHOOTOUT (17-inch screen edition):

Razer Blade (Pro)
MSI Stealth GS70
Cyberpower ZeusBook Ultimate

Thermals are obviously a large concern in such a narrow design. Screen type, display specs should be high on the list and of course the function of gaming on them.

When will we see this MPC?

FOR LATIOS XT...
"You don't seem to understand a thing"~ Well aren't we all high and mighty. I got news for ya, buddy; I'm a 37 year old digital artist/gamer who builds his own systems... I think I know a thing or two. And in regards to your response as to what I said... You're not even talking about the SAME THING. I wasn't talking about COMFORT. I was talking about CRASHES/PERFORMANCE. So why don't you RE-read the topic at hand. EVERYONE knows "high performance" parts produce heat. That has always been a given. The fellow I was responding to was talking about BSODs and the infamous XBOX RRODs. I was simply stating that this was less likely to happen WITH THESE PARTS. And if you know anything about nVidia and Intel... I AM CORRECT. So go buy yourself a lap mat, and sit back down.

This doesn't look like it can compete with the Lenovo ideapads that have dual 750Ms for less (with the sale; $70 more w/o) than the base price for this model, like the Ideapad 510p.

Usually you see companies trying to copy Apple, but recently MSI, and now these guys are copying Razer's computer designs. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Hey.That_Dude

Meh. Not bad. It's actually in competition with the MSI model.
This is the thing I want to see! COMPETITION!

Wow, looks like a great laptop. However, I'm a little worried about the performance of the GTX 765M at 1080p. 770M, fine. But 765?

I have a laptop with a 765M and it runs most games just fine at 1080p.

Its thinner.. nice. But how long does it take to overheat and die?

After getting first gen PS3 and Xbox 360... not to mention some of the higher end video cards.. overheating has really spooked me.

First of all the XBOX 360 and PS3 are super old tech. Especially the ones you're referring to. It was only the first generation of XBOX 360s that were really bad,and that was how long ago??? Old tech. Second, overheating is more of a concern with AMD cards, less with nVidia. This looks like a slick laptop. If I had the money, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

You don't seem to understand a thing.

It doesn't matter how new the technology is, if it's a higher performing part, it's going to suck up power and produce heat. In fact, Haswell CPUs have a higher TDP than Ivy Bridge. And looking at several reviews of high performance, but thin laptops on Notebookcheck shows that they not only get hot, but develop uncomfortable areas of temperature. And I don't mean on your lap either, but on the keyboard area too.

And this was a problem with my last laptop which was a Dell XPS 15z. It could play games, but if I were to do so for an extended period of time, it'd get really uncomfortable to use. And it wasn't even using high end parts.

Hey.That_Dude

I think you can sacrifice another inch and carry a laptop cooling stand. After all. If you're going to game for more than an hour or 3 you'll want a power cord so lugging a thin piece of metal with some fans on it shouldn't take up that much more room (at least compared to a LAN box.) In addition to the fact that it will make gaming more comfortable.
