    WHOOPS! Sorry folks!

    Not only did I mess up the spelling in the thread's title, it's also misleading. No need to 'pre-order', because the barebones units are AVAILABLE NOW!

    :D :D :D

    There is no GTX675M option.. so as I see it, and the GTX580M is more powerful than the GTX670M.. The earlier model is still the better option. Till Ivy Bridge and GTX680M comes, that is.

    That's when it will be worth checking out the 580gtx price drop :)

    That's already done, with the GTX 675M only $100 over 670M.

    Well, they're only on the Sager/Clevos AFAIK, but for MSI laptops, no, not yet.

    I was talking with Ken, and he thinks that if the 16F3 does not have a native backlit keyboard, a keyboard from the GT60 should work just fine (though he needs to test first). I also heard rumblings that a 675m variant might be coming soon, but nothing concrete.

    They're sexy looking laptops, in any case.

    When the 675 finally comes to the 16F3 I believe the 16f2 with the 580 will have a very nice price until units finally run out. This is what I meant when I was talking about the 580 price drop.

    Im hoping for that with the barebones and branded models. Hopefully the new graphics and processors coming out and available on newer models drop the older ones a solid amount.

    Well, they can just take those 580M's and just rename it to 675M's :D

    Wrong N number laser etched onto the core :p

    Also if you feel like getting ripped off:

    £2300 for the top model, that's $3640 for the curious.

    What are the chances the Radeon HD 7970M will run on this?

    Thanks!
