What do you think of this laptop? I'm looking for a laptop that has both gaming and media center capabilities. I plan to play SC2, WoW, and D3 as well as watch BlueRay DVDs. I want to make sure that the laptop will handle the games I play at full graphics. I also want to know if this laptop is good for the price or if I can buy something equivalent or better for the same price. ($1669.00 USD)

I am also not very familiar with MSI (Micro-Star International) but I have seen good reviews. Any experience or info would be appreciated.

I'd say that it will easily handle your games. It doesn't seem like a bad deal at all actually, especially for something with a mobile 5870/i7 in it.
