MSI Gets a SteelSeries Keyboard, Builds The GX780 Gaming Notebook

The worst part about buying a fancy new gaming keyboard? It's hard to show the thing off if it never leaves your basement apartment. MSI's newly announced GX780 notebook combines a colorful backlit 102-key SteelSeries-designed keyboard with the (relative) portability of an 8.6 pound gaming laptop. The keyboard features 1,000 different color combinations, five lighting modes, 10 key simultaneous input, and a layout the company calls "The Golden Triangle" -- trademark pending, we're sure. The 17.3 inch notebook has some solid non-keyboard specs as well, including GeForce GT555M graphics, a second gen Intel Core i7 processor, and an impressive maximum 16GB of DDR3. No word on pricing or availability, but hopefully the MSRP isn't as colorful as that keyboard.

Anybody know of any gaming laptops with a mechanical keyboard? I doubt one exists, but I'm if it does, somebody here would know. Thanks in advance!

I think I'm going to buy a desktop next time I get a computer, laptops are too expensive and I never move mine around.
