"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "

So you're not getting the i7 because of the gaming potential of the Radeon 7670, so can you share why this laptop?

I'm sure a gamer might like this one. Lots of bragging rights here.
