I think these kind of gaming laptops/desktop replacement are going to get replaced by notebooks like the Razer Blade, MSI GS70 and the Gigabyte P35K. They are more portable, look nicer and offer the same amount of power.

It's a rebranded clevo model. The W230st in particular. Save some cash and buy the barebone model and put it together yourself. I did it with the eon-11s(W110er) built it myself and saved $400 off the origin price. Clevos are awesome power/price combo when you build it yourself. There isn't much that can match them in that category.

Interesting, can you provide a link to build your own?

Is there an SLI option like the Lenovo Y510P?
