  1. Not sure but I may have just posted a comment in the Alienware forum when I meant to do it in the MSI GT740

  2. Hello,

    Too bad that the maximun memory is 4 GB. It should have been fairly easy and low cost to make it capable of 8 GB.

    I would love to get this for graphics and 3D animation.

  4. I personally prefer this laptop to the Alienware series laptops but I dunno which to get ??
