MSI's sweet Shadow gaming dock bundle costs as much as an old-school PC

Mark Hachman | Jan. 9, 2015
As any gamer knows, the problem with a laptop is that once you've purchased it, you're stuck with whatever the manufacturer included inside. MSI now has two separate products that can solve that problem.

The rumor, according to PCW's Gordon Mah Ung, is that the laptop will eventually support a drop-in Broadwell replacement when the chips are released in several months. And wouldn't that be a nifty upgrade?

Why this matters:  We would love, love, love a future where we could take a thin-and-light notebook to work, power through some Web browsing and document creation, then take the same notebook home and plug it into an external GPU for some additional gaming. With Alienware, MSI, and The Hive all supporting something similar, could this be the year of the external GPU?
