    I want.

    But could I ever reasonably afford it?

    Still, I have to say, they've really packed some great gear into this laptop. I think the keyboard is a sweet touch, as pro keyboards are typically missing in laptops.

      If I remember right, I think MSI usually has pretty reasonable prices. But this laptop is geared toward gamers, so who knows what the markup will be

    There hasn't been any official announcement on price or availability for the GX780 yet. We will update this post when more details are out.

    Let me guess: $1,500

  • Hmm

    Video hardware is kind of wimpy for it to be a 'gaming' box. MSI's laptop offerings are always lackluster.

    Paraphrasing what someone yelled at a Federal Reserve Press Conference where Mr. Bernake and Mr. Dudley tried to "sell" all US citizen that raising the price of commodities it's not a big deal because one should consider that today we can buy an iPad2 for the same price of an iPad1: "I can't eat an MSI GX780!"
