    Thank you Jobine!

    I've heard MSI GT70 has a lot of problems with vent. Did you have a chance to run hard any of those?

    Also what about Clevo quality compared to asus G750?

    And do you guys know what those Nvidia "500" cards might be in terms of gaming performance? Is there any info around yet? Also - is there a set timing for announcing new high-end mobile graphics (like 800m this year) - which would be worth waiting for hoping for 780M discounts?

    Thanks!
