Excerpt: One of my favorite categories of notebooks are the gaming machines. They remind me a lot of sports cars; you get more power than most sane people really want, enough style to keep people staring at you and a price tag that reflects the premium nature of the product.
Summary: MSI's latest GX740 is the anathema of high-spec gaming laptops. Normally, if you want a machine that's built for performance, like the Asus G73 or the Alienware M17x , it's going to cost you. All those cutting-edge components don't come cheap, you know. But the GX740 is a near-perfect blend of price and performance. Despite costing a quid less than £1,000, it’ll deliver blistering frame-rates in any game you can throw at it.
