While "HDD size could be bigger" is true, I can see where they were going because the 1TB 2.5 inch drives I know are all 5400RPM. So they were going for the speed on that choice.

Where does Ed Norton rank up in MaximumPC's "Pantheon" of actors who've played The Hulk?

I like him a lot, but I thought he was a bit too serious. I think Mark Ruffalo was perfect because he was believable as a scientist yet he still didn't take the role too seriously. Just my two cents! :)

You guys tested a gaming laptop with STALKER: CoP, a 3 year old game, Dota 2 and Global offense. Really? Update your graphic testing suite PLEASE.

I don't mind the Stalker: CoP benchmark as it is free and I can run it on my machines and compare it to the latest & greatest that MPC tests.

Though the benchmark does take a fairly long time and, startlingly, the game doesn't look very good IMO. If I weren't familiar with the title, somewhat, I'd imagine that were I shown it I'd imagine it to be just a 1920*1080 version of some Xbox 360 port.

That thing is an *amazing* ripoff of MSI's GT70 body design.

Quite a few laptop companies, especially these "budget gamer" brands use the Clevo laptop and just add their badge to it. I wouldn't be surprised if both this model and the MSI one you speak of use a Clevo (or at least from the same OEM).

Point withdrawn. I looked it up, an it actually *is* the GT70 chassis.
