Ge70 0NC vs 0ND
by sillyfishyboy - 3/24/13 10:03 AM
Hi, this is a bit of a nitty gritty question. I had finally narrowed my laptop of choice down to the Ge70 which I can get for £789 (gbp). This is the 0NC version. The 0ND version would cost £1100 (gbp). After more searching I finally found that I can get the 0ND version shipped from US for approximately £850.
<div>The only real difference between these two though is that the 0NC has a GT 650m and 10/100/1000 LAN While the 0ND has a GTX 660m and
Bigfoot Killer Gaming Network LAN.</div>
I know that this does make the 0ND a better laptop. The 660m is about 15% faster than the 650m in practice and I believe that MSI can use Nvidia turbo on the 660m which they cannot on the 650m (unconfirmed). Is anyone aware of any other difference between these two machines? And is this small improvement really worth the extra cost? Particularly when you think that without shipping from the US, this laptop would be £300 more.
Any opinions welcome..
