    Cool New Notebook now available 17.3" SkyFire!

    Today we have launched the new 17.3" SkyFire. Featuring the 3GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 570M graphics chip, the SkyFire is a high quality notebook designed for gaming and high end usage. With the option of both a matte and glossy screen, and native support for two hard drives, this chassis plugs a gap in our current range and is sure to be a popular choice.

    You can see images and configure the 17.3" SkyFire here: http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/skyFire/

    Looks lovely but does look a little bulky. Plenty of cooling though, look at all those vents !

    This laptop looks fantastic. One question: Is the keyboard backlit?

    I can't gurantee this answer is 100% correct but I am 99% sure that it isn't because it would be mentioned in the detailed spec or in this thread. Also, the keys don't look like they have a light behind them either.

    No, this model does not back the backlit keyboard.

    That's a pity, as the only other option for gaming notebooks with backlit keyboards is Alienware and they're definitely not worth the price.

    I've just come across this review for the MSI GT780R. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-...k.56040.0.html

    It has a backlit keyboard!
