MSI outs the industry's first 3K resolution notebooks

MSI has announced two new high-resolution display notebooks, including the industry's first gaming notebook supporting 3K resolution. Both notebooks have a 15.6-inch display with a native resolution of 2880x1620.
 
The GT60 20D-261US is the gaming version of the notebook, while the GT60 20KWS-278US is the workstation version. Both machines have the same features with the only difference being the OS and graphics used. The gaming version of the notebook runs Windows 8 and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M. The workstation version runs Windows 7 and uses an NVIDIA Quadro K3100M GPU.

 
Both versions of the notebook have a 128GB SSD and a 1TB HDD for storage. Both have an Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor, 16GB of RAM and integrated Blu-ray burners. The notebooks also have Killer E2200 networking and Killer N1202 Wi-Fi. The battery for the machines is a 9-cell unit and MSI integrates a 720p webcam on the front. Both machines. The notebooks also have SteelSeries backlit keyboards for working and gaming in the dark.

 
The dimensions of the notebooks are the same at 14.97" x 10.24" x 1.77" and both weigh 7.7 pounds.
 
One big difference between the two notebooks is price. The gaming version sells for $2,199.99, while the workstation version sells for $2,799.99.

You gotta be kidding, right? Oh wait, it's been done before.

Dell made a 20" gaming notebook called the XPS M2010 in 2006:

Personally, I'll never buy a 15.6" laptop. When I want portability, I'll use my phablet, thank you very much. But in actual PC use cases, a full-blown PC is what's called for.

I have my DELL 17" Precision laptop -- 1920x1200 screen, full-size keyboard (and NVIDIA Quadro graphics) -- I'll never go to anything smaller or more cramped. 1920x1200 is already bordering on too high-res even on a 17" screen, and the keyboard if already bordering on barely large enough to be comfortable...
