There are only msi dominators on amazon

There are only Asus in newegg with the 980m/970m, do a search for gpu/vpu 980m/970m, it's not that hard, same for amazon. People will usually ask for suggestions from any site or advise on what's better, then there's you, who will ask for only amazon/newegg laptops with a new GPU instead of going to the search bar and seeing the only 3 or 4 models out there
