MSI GT683R-242: 1,499

I feel like since the Xotic laptop can come with out windows 7 I could get a better deal. Anyway how major are the differences between the two?

Thanks for the help!

8150 is better.
I'd recommend MSI GT780R if you're looking to get a MSI laptop.It's better than GT683 and offers a backlit keyboard too

I like the Sager one better, if not just for the fact that the MSI notebook looks incredibly cheap (looks like plastic hinges and like no one bothered with case design) even though you're paying $1500.
