    I'm curious to see the new 21" Acer in Q1 2017 ... I think we will have a new leader of the gaming notebooks.
    Acer, lol ... who would have thought.

    I would liked to see the 1070 perform in the GT83VR. Should be cooler yes?

    yes.... I heard about that monster! That may be my next years Christmas present! that 21 inch screen will make up for no upgrade for GPU:)

    @MSI Myco @MSI Natalie @MSIGeno

    What I would like to see are the GT73VR / GT83VR trade-in configurations benchmarked with performance, temperature, and fan noise results comparisons.

    The GT73VR single 1080 looks pretty good temperature and fan noise wise, from the single review we have seen.

    While the GT83VR 1080 SLI runs hot during even short benchmark runs.

    I would like to see the GT83VR 1070 SLI and GT73VR 1070 SLI tested similarly with performance, temperature, and fan noise results comparisons.

    I would rather get the GT83VR 1080 SLI, but not with the current temperature and noise characteristics, at least as seen in that one available review.

    The 1070 SLI in the GT83VR would be my 2nd choice, but I would like to see if the GT73VR 1070 SLI performance, temperature, and noise in comparison as the 120hz 5ms screen in that model is of more interest to me than the 1080p 60hz screen in the GT83VR.

    Thank you!!

    @GenTechPC - any plans for GT73VR 1070 SLI and GT83VR 1070 SLI reviews? :D

    How do the rest of you GT80 owners feel about the GT83VR / GT73VR test results so far?

    That 21x is a pretty sweet design and I love the curved 21" display, but I still have concerns over that thing cracking in my backpack.

    I hope MSI releases the details for the trade-in soon, so we can stop admiring laptops from other manufacturers... especially acer of all places. lol.

    I don't know why, but I feel we will get new laptops trade, in our old ones. I also think MSI will take the hit in cost but we will have to pay them something. Not as much as we are hearing around $500 depending on the GPU we have will be more or less but I'm sticking with the 1070 to match my 970 wasn't the fastest but stayed cooler from what the comments I saw about the 980 and 980M. I didn't have heat issues but my bench marks were lower for performance.
