Summary: This is the best, fast computer I have ever owned. my 12 yr old plays steam, garys mod always on youtube and minecraft and this is the only computer that he hasn't complained was slow or lagging. If ya want a gamimg computer not a gaming price this is it.
Excerpt: I haven't had any problems with this msi whatsoever. I love the smooth striped cover and the chiclet keyboard. I got a great deal on it, especially considering that it has the Intel Core i5-430M processor. The hard drive is reasonably sized at 320gb, there's 4gb of ddr3 memory, intel integrated graphics, and a 15.6 wxga led panel.I haven't had any lag when using any applications like Adobe Photoshop or Sony Vegas.

Excerpt: I absolutely fell in love with this laptop when I first set my eyes on it. I ejoyed the fact that it was energy star rated, and that it was what I was looking for. It was affordable to boot, which was really great. This laptop plays games smoothly, and also runs multiple programs well. Right now I have Photoshop, Firefox, Steam, Skype, and MSN running. I am not lagging at all.
Excerpt: Mostly its ok to deal with at its price level but the sound is terrible even compared to my 6 year old Compaq laptop !!! Wish they could get an upgrade for it. The battery gave out within a few months. They ultimately replaced it but as soon as I got it back it started shutting down on me. So send it back again. They replaced the fan and cooling cover. It does get very hot when being used for a while. I will get an HP next time.
Excerpt: I got this MSI after my Toshiba bit the dust after 2 years. I have had this for about 4 months and have to say that I am pleasantly surprised. I had not heard of MSI before I purchased this but I can't complain at all. I love the numeric keypad on the side that makes the keyboard feel closer to a desktop. That is a really big help. You just have to get used to your hands being shifted over a bit further than on a regular keyboard.
Excerpt: This is the laptop that I currently own and its my first laptop. As a sophomore in college, it really helps to have a reliable laptop, either for online classes or for using skype to keep in contact with the family. This laptop comes with a built-in webcam, while it isn't the best webcam on the market, it gets the job done. The keyboard is a bit different from most laptops (they call it a chiclet keyboard, google/bing it).
Excerpt: first off the battery life on this machine is decent. with different modes to chose from to adjust the amount of power you use, this laptop surely gets the job done. don't be folled by some reviews this laptop only has around a 2hr battery life. take it from someone who has owned it for 2yrs. even though it had an intresting nice chilet keyboard, typing is somewhat a hassle for word becasue of the random getter keys nd it always messes you up.
Excerpt: I must say I was wary of purchasing a laptop that did not come from the big manufacturers like Dell or IBM. However, a techie I know said that MSI was an up-and-coming company. After buying this laptop, I would have to say he was right. The screen is very clear and the keys on the keyboard seem to have just the right "bounce-back." The one complaint I have about the keyboard is the placement of the delete key.
