The results from some GX60's show that it has more 3D grunt than other laptops in the gaming area.
Agree a more powerful CPU could be used ,but the FS1r2 may be held up by the mainboard chipsets -Hudson on the South & Northbridge chipset being the AMD K15.http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/7584040
shows that these CPU's have room to move in the future and out perform the Asus and other machines of similiar price and spec,these machines are not $3K+ they are only around $1K.
A CPU with 6 cores with HT type of support would be great.
Even with 1866 ram these machines dont show much improvement which could also be an issue with the chipset and mem controllers.
These machines should come down in price but increase in performance in the future ,MSI and others will sell well if the
HD7970M is driven by more processor and a faster controller chipset.
