So, the MSI GX60 is for sale with a good 100-150$ discount including the excellent Radeon 7970M GPU and A10-4600M CPU along with 8GB DDR3 memory, good matte 1080p screen and 750GB 7200RPM HDD.
Here is a GX60 review. In short: Besides the good performance and standard good 1080p screen, the GX60 is quite cool, includes mSata connectors and can last 5 hours on one battery charge surfing the web
In terms of performance, the MSI GX60 worth the 1100$-1200$, especially since it includes a Windows OS. Although the A10-4600M is limiting the gaming performance, in 3D high settings (otherwise, why by such a laptop), the gaming performance usually set around the 670MX and 675MX, which is excellent.
