The house that Mario built is sturdier than ever

Official sales numbers reported by the NPD Group research firm aren't due 'til January 14 -- but Nintendo is pretty confident its holiday sales figures are healthy.

In a press release sent out this morning, Nintendo says that it expects Wii sales for December to top 3 million units. It also estimates that overall New Super Mario Bros. Wii sales since the game's launch in November will clock in near 4 million.

Nintendo seems a little less certain how its handheld systems did. The press release claims that the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSI together will "set a new all-time calendar-year U.S. sales record for any console or hand-held system."

We'll see how close Nintendo's estimations are when we get to the 14th.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
