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.

So it's you and yours I can direct the hatemail towards. Good to know.
It's WAY, WAY, WAY past time that we've had > 1080p on a 15" laptop. WUXGA used to be the standard...and for the past several years we've had to put up with LOWER than that, just because. Meanwhile, every sort of phone and tablet kept getting better resolutions. This isn't a bad thing, it's high-past due.
Secondly, for those individuals like yourself who complain about a 3k screen in a 15" laptop; NO ONE IS MAKING YOU BUY IT. There's plenty of other lackluster 15" laptops out there with poor-resolution screens. You're welcome to buy one of those. I myself don't give a gigantic flip about battery life, since my laptop is plugged in 99% of the time anyway; I just need the portability for the numerous trips I'm sent on.
This isn't really news anymore. The GT-60 3k was announced back in late spring, and they've been available for sale for around a month or more (US market). Be VERY careful about ordering one, because it appears that these come in both Matte and Glossy screens--and not every retailer shares that detail.
