  1. I recommend getting sandy bridge notebooks instead(MSI GT680) because they're notably faster.
    I couldn't find a review of it but it's got the same problem as all the "G" series(which is their poor keyboard and an average display)
  2. ahm im not that technical.can i ask what is sandy bridge notebooks?and can you recommend a specific notebook that is within the price range of Gx660.thanks!!
