Back around January MSI mentioned it was going to be bringing the GX740 gaming notebook to market this year. We heard a bit more about the machine when March rolled around and today MSI announced that you could buy the GX740 now.
The gaming notebook can be purchased for $1399 at Amazon.com and Newegg right now. For that much loot you get a 17-inch screen with a 1680 x 1050 resolution, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB HDD.
The notebook has an ATI HD 5870 graphics card with 1GB of GDDR5 RAM. Power comes from a 9-cell battery and the machine uses a new Intel Core i5 CPU according to the MSI website. Apparently, other configurations will be offered as well.
