Notebook of week 36, MSI GT780DX


Recommended Posts


The MSI GT780DX to me looks like a nice all round good machine, not over the top but can still kick butt.

Not seen a Notebook where an SSD is standard for speed along with a HDD for volume.

The Geforce GTX570M should handle anything out at the moment.

I doubt battery life will be all that great, if it comes with a 180w AC adaptor.

I personally would go for the full 1080p LCD and backlit keyboard

At around US$1550 for base model this is going to set you back quite a bit.

But the US$ being so low, in reality non US buyers are getting a good deal.

I could quite easily see me using this or possibly it's 15.6" sibling.

This is a nice looking machine!

What I would love to see are more 14.1" notebooks that have great nVidia chipsets to choose from! :)

I'm still on my 14.1" modded T61p sporting an nVidia Quadro FX 570M.
