Past 3D Vision laptops are able to enable LightBoost (via the 3D Glasses emitter trick), so there's no reason why a motion-blur-reducing strobe backlight technology such as ULMB can't be done on laptops.

However, I'm not sure if NVIDIA has enabled ULMB on any laptop LCDs.

For this specific MSI laptop, seeing that it is 120Hz IPS 5ms, this specific laptop probably does not have ULMB.

I checked a review and they said this is a TN screen, not an IPS. ... o-overview
For some reason, the "6th gen" one says IPS, but this doesn't mention IPS.
a search on google found that this was a TN 120hz screen.

The panel is "CMN1747"
listed here: (same panel).

Proof: ... ave_gsync/

I guess I'll find out when I receive the laptop. It's a 1920x1080 screen, and Masterotaku said the GPU does support 3d vision 2, but I know the ACI27F8 ToastyX CRU ID spoof won't enable Lightboost...even if the drivers can be tricked into allowing 3d vision 2 setup to work without goggles...
