    It's available as the Sager NP8372 at the moment. https://www.sagernotebook.com/Notebook-NP8372.html . It's hard to recommend this over something or vice-versa as of right now because it is so new that I don't know of anyone who actually has one.

    The GE series is MSI's value series where as the NP8372 is one of our premium finish series I will say at least ;)

    What are the performance gains in terms of FPS in games, comparing the 7700hq and the 7820hk at stock speeds and I guess with minimal OCin'?

    Why does it cost more than the same spec GT?

    Also, do you know what Temps NP8372 run at?

    My guess is because it weighs 2 lbs less and is almost an inch thinner.

    I'm really just curious because and comparing the GT Dominator to the GE Raider, I cannot come to the same conclusion that the GE series is the value series for MSI. I believe the GP has always been the value series and the GE, the mid range. From what I've been told, MSI is moving away from the value/high end model and the new model will be something along the lines of (GT = Full Desktop Replacement, GE = mid weight and GS = thin and light.)

    They will be discontinuing the Apache and Dominator along with a slew of other gaming based notebooks. The Titan will be the only desktop replacement model and the Raider will be the only mid weight model. They will have two light and thin models to choose from. One being a regular GPU and the other being a Max-Q.

    I think MSI is just trying to rebrand its notbooks while gearing up for the holidays moving into next year. They started it by making the Dominator irrelevant once the Raider was released. If you look at the models side by side, the Raider as the same display and in some cases, an even better display. The Raider has the upgraded thermal design system (cooler boost 5) while the Dominator is still stuck on CB4. The speakers included on the Raider are better than the Dominator and possibly the best on any laptop even close to its size. Lastly, the Raider got the upgraded keyboard with per key RGB. A feature usually saved for the higher end stuff.

    My final thoughts. Just comparing the Raider against the Dominator, if I didn't know what GE and GT stood for, I would assume the Raider was the higher end notebook.

    I mean, someone please tell me if I'm out of line on this. I've gathered this information from two separate resellers and I've only done this research because I'm anal about notebook purchases that I'm giving for gifts.

    If you're comparing the PA70HS-G to the GE73VR then current offerings are pretty similar, with slight differences in specs. You'll have to decide what's more important to you. The Clevo model has thunderbolt and G-Sync, the MSI model has per-key RGB, a 120Hz panel, and probably better speakers.

    The Clevo model will have better options for the panel and CPU coming out in a month or so (from what I've read).

    Really? Which CPU is that?

    Im just going to wait on thermal reviews before I do anything. When it comes to what I look for in a portable notebook....... Cooling > Everything else.
