Depending on the price I would seriously consider getting this. I am a casual gamer.

Everyone is piggy backing off of razers laptop line. Ultrabook gaming laptops, I love it!

It's great to see that Windows laptop manufacturers are finally making lightweight gaming laptops. For the longest time the only laptop's you could buy with a gaming quality GPU that were light was the 15" Macbook Pro.

Although I wonder if these have as good a battery life as the Macbook Pro? The real advantage they had over Windows laptops was their weight and battery life to performance ratio. As any Windows laptop would end up weighing more and/or have worse battery than the Macbook Pro for the same GPU performance or end up costing more.

It took a new player like Razor to force the bigger guys hand into developing light weight high end gamers, like these. Otherwise they would still be pawning huge ugly beasts or consumer models with half baked game hardware add-ons prone to failure because they were ever designed to be gaming laptops.

The big question is though, is will Gigabyte release these in the States? They, like Asus and everyone else seem to be releasing their new innovative products like this outside of the US.

Isn't that how it always is though? The "bigger guys" become comfortable in their profitable zone and just outright refuse to do anything different for fear of it affecting their "bottom line". Then when things become popular they finally get off their butts and try to get a piece of the pie (See Kodak).

Ok. Was I in a cave? Where is the gaming quality MBP?
Unless you are referring to Facebook gaming (e.g Candy Crush)
