THAT is a sweet choice for a gaming laptop. I have an MSI GT70 Dominator that I got in August of 2014 and I am superbly happy with it.
However, when I wanted it this one was not available either. I am not certain but i think when BB first started carrying MSI they were shipped per order direct from MSI.
Howeever mine is a 17" and it makes for great gaming.
If you have never had a SSD before your going to be pleased. The OS is loaded on the SSD. And it is best recommended you load games on the HDD to keep the SSD as free as possible for system files and smaller softwares. However, my system boots from cold to ready to run in less than 10 seconds, including typing in the password.
However I do load my current game onto the SSD and then delete it when I go to the next or transfer it to the HDD.
Anyway if that is the one you want I would just wait.
However, for the same price
Is in orderable with a 17" screen and a faster cpu. same GPU. You do lose half the SSD size but the OS and other basic software should leave around 60gb free which is enough for one game.

Ahh I see. My only concern with a slim design at this power level is heat dissipation.
Wish my wife could appreciate gaming with me.

Hi RogerRoderns –
Unfortunately we do not have any information on when the laptop you’re looking at should become available for purchase again. As soon as MSI provides us with more inventory we will update the product page on our website, so I recommend keeping an eye out for when it becomes available.

Hello I am hoping to get an idea as to if this make and model will be getting restocked soon? Of course it is my luck that after hard deliberation and research the one I want is out of stock. Any help with this inquiry? @MichaelM-BBY

Personally I am a big fan of MSI gaming laptops. I don't know if anyone will be able to determine for you when it will be back in stock. However, Best Buy just started stocking the new MSI machines with a 1000 series GPU in them.
Near that price range you could look at this one
The big thing to be aware of is it does not come with a DVD/Blu Ray drive. But it does have a Thunderbolt port for hooking one up. At first I was flummoxed over the idea of having to hook up a drive when I wanted to use one but then I realized I only need a DVD drive when installing games. And external drives are pretty inexpensive.
