Any better deals than this?

I'm in the market for a new laptop with more balls than the one I have (Inspiron 1545 w/ Radeon 4330). I've had my eyes on this for a while

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16834152251

and was just wondering if anyone has noticed any better deals in Canada? I've also never owned an MSI laptop, how's the build quality? If you do find anything else you'd recommend I'm willing to spend up to $1000. Thanks guys.

MSI Is decent. The quality shows in the price only.

A 3,000 MSI will have much better build quality (obviously along with specs) than a 750$.

If you're interested I am selling my Asus Gaming Laptop G-51-core i7 and all that jazz. For a few hundred more than that one you linked.

I am trying to get an Asus U36.

soulsaver8229 @ gmail.com if you'd like to talk it over. Paypal verified, heatware and all that jazz. This is my 34th laptop.

I would say no.
Based on personal experience with MSI mobos, they suck. That isn't enough to just not go with MSI on a laptop, but that one the resolution sucks for a 15in screen. That resolution is 12in territory IMHO.

I was never really a fan of my MSI motherboards growing up but I have no experience nor did I even know they "made" laptops. I'd stay away if it was me.

Most new laptops with 13,14,and 15 inch screens are 1366 x 768 now. Its harder to avoid than you think. The MSI he linked to is actually a 15.6 screen. It all goes back to the 16:9 vs 16:10 debate. 16:9 looks like it has become the new standard.

I have a newish 15.6 lenovo thats 1366 x 768 and to me it looks fine on that size screen.
