    I need a new gaming laptop to replace my late 2011 15" MBP (that no one seems to buy for even 1200$), I about to get an MSI Dragon, before I realized the screen was 16:9 and an intell :mad:, I then looked at the GX70, but the screen was 16:9 :mad:.
    Are there any gaming laptops that are 16:10, and can run crysis III, metro last light, and the witcher II, with all setting maxed?
    Should I just wait for the new rMBP, and overclock the crap out of the GPU?

    No

    Honestly, i think playing 16:10 is over-rated. I competed professionally for a few years and it doesn't make or break anything.

    CPUs aren't the issues with games these days, its the GPU, that being said, you are going to want a machine with a dedicated GPU.

    The Intel chipsets used in Macs these days do not overclock under osx. More and more the frequencies are being locked down

    I meant to overclock the GPU.

    If you like 16:10 you are in the minority...I know of no capable (and affordable) gaming laptops that are not 16:9. Make the transition to the mainstream side...it is the best way to game. (Or buy a monitor...either way...)

    I can't imagine why anyone would prefer 16:9 for anything other than watching videos.
