    for a laptop, it seems like a good idea as long as the cooling is up for it. since it increases the battery life when not gaming.

    but the MSI's graphics card turbo button, it's a completely waste, who the hell wants to reach to the back of their PC to get a good FPS? they'd leave it just running.

    I have not seen a turbo button since my 486. Thats when I could go from 33mhz to 66mhz at a push of a button, oh yeah baby thats fast.

    Although at the time I did not understand or notice what it did :p

    Doh! You beat me!

    Yeah, although seem to remember the numbers being close to 8 and 12Mhz... Ach, did 186s go that slow?

    That little gold connector next to the e-Sata port; is that a jack for external wifi antennas?

    It could be for a built in GSM device maybe?

    Depends. Since MSI manufacture its own and there's only 1 mobo for the range then it's hard wired in this time around :)

    Yes, actually, I have always wanted something with a turbo button. I just find them cool. I've always wanted to add one to my PC, even though it would do nothing. I just like the idea of a "turbo" mode, it amuses me. Yes, I'm easily amused:worried:
