GT72S Tobii –The MSI GT72 is the world’s most advanced gaming notebook and the world’s first PC with integrated eye tracking from Tobii.

Enter a world of unparalleled immersion when both game characters and environments react to your gaze, focus and attention. Yet to be fully realized, eye tracking gaming is the next evolution in PC gaming, influencing not only the game, but also the components of your notebook as well.

Together, both MSI and Tobii are driving the growth of eye tracking gaming – supporting thousands of forward-thinking developers creating entirely new experiences for gaming, streaming and even general computing.

The new GT72S Tobii will be available later this month supporting major game titles and will be bundled with the highly anticipated Tom Clancy’s The Division. For a list of Tobii supported games, go to http://www.tobii.com/apps/.

2000$~ for the starting configuration with a i7 6700K and two GTX 960 in SLI and 3000$~ for a i7 6700K an two GTX 980 (Not M Notebook Version) in SLI. Other hardware was note specified, only that it comes with two M.2 connectors, four SO-DIMM DDR4 slots and it may come in a X99 configuration.

I would like to know:
- Is the bracket which is visible at 00:30 of the official video a 2.5" mount?
- Will there be a barebone for DIY?
- What size of M.2? M.2 Raid possible? Super RAID 4 ect.
- Since the GPUs will be upgradable, how many Gens of upgrades?
