    I haven't seen a Turbo button since Socket 7.

    Granted, do I have to join Computer-enthusiast's Anonymous before I can own up to still having one or two of those old boxen?

    Wow, as you say, the last time I had a turbo button my PC was bigger than I was at the time!! (I was only 8yrs old, and it was 1996...)

    I wonder if you get a popup message warnign you not to have it on your lap 'cause it must turn into an oven!!!

    Still, a 20% CPU and Memory overclock is not to be sniffed at!

    After the poor build quality of my Acer laptop, I'm wary of anything that is overly and obviously 'plastic'...

    I really like the tribal stuff :thumb: ..however, a 'gaming laptop' will probably never be something I'd buy. The price of high-end laptops combined with the un-upgradability (is that even a word?) don't make them an attractive purchase for me.

    Would there really be a need for a battery in that laptop :confused: you know that you would get no battery time if that thing is in turbo so just put another hard drive in its place :blah:

    Nice to hear your comments.... I think in the UK we also agree with a few of them :wallbash: We will help feedback these comments to our head office so keep them coming :thumb:

    Just to clear up a few things:

    Lets be honest, a gaming notebook is not designed to be used as an away from power PC, turbo button or no turbo button! In fact I think 99% of dedicated VGA in notebooks will actually drop the clock speeds when no AC is used... hence no power is not an option. The advantage is a laptop you can use anywhere (with battery), and move to your friends / LAN to game (with AC) easily... and for that it should come up trumps :rock:

    Athough the MSI laptops may look like plastic, they are actually Magnesium-Alloy which have the appearance of plastic once coated due to being so light weight, but in actually fact the strength is far superiour to plastic :idea:

    The Turbo button doesn't work when you're not plugged in anyway :)

    John, I hope the notebooks we saw were demonstration only because they looked and felt very plastic :/ An Mg-alloy finish would be far far superior!
