Summary: I think I'm going to stick with Asus ROG's now. Kind of had really high expectation from MSI product which is probably what disappointed me more. Going to return this product just because of the fan noise.
Pros: Very nice specs for its price.
Cons: Fans were kind of louder than I expected. I have an old Asus G46v which I bought around 2 years ago and that one had almost 0 fan noise. I bought that product from newegg as well and expected of similar quality from this MSI.
Summary: As a basic laptop, for web browsing, or usual work loads, it's fine. But to be advertised as a "gaming" Laptop, sorry but no.
Pros: OK, first one came DOA. Newegg stepped up and RMA'd it, even though I had bought the first one well in advance of Christmas as a present for someone. Second one works fine, so far.
Cons: Definitly is NOT a gaming laptop. It is a decent running LT, but even the most average game, ( In this case, the first tried was "Sherlock Holmes" PC game ) runs horribly slow and stutters, with all setting on low. We really didnt buy this as a gaming machine obviously by the specs, but with a de...
Summary: i submitted a rma today and have a replacement coming so i'll update my review once new laptop arrives. The shipping company they use i.e "OnTrac" is HORRIBLE . Worst shipping company ever and would never subject my customers to them.
Pros: looks good and started up but. See cons
Cons: It was Mailed to me defective, Cloud of stuck pixels right in middle of the screen that looks like its raining more pixels.
Touchpad really leaves much to be desired on an otherwise beautiful machine.

Summary: I purchased this computer for myself for gaming, general use, and managing my small (online) business. Overall, the computer itself runs beautifully. It can easily handle the demands of my MMORPGs with a fantastic 80-90 fps and latency 120ms and under despite being on a Pacific server living on the...
Summary: I think trying to go the middle route and buying a gaming laptop is a difficult thing to do. As a student I wanted to be able to play all my games with good performance while at the same time being able to do all my work and turned to this computer to help me do the job.
Summary: The overall design of the computer feels a little dated and the keyboard has the off placed mini right shift key that was hard to adjust to. The GPU is what I felt was underpowered for the price since there are other models available by other companies with i7 processors and much more powerful GPUs.
Decent laptop, but the screen is a little too flimsy.

Summary: Pros: Slim, simple, not overpriced, full sized numerical keypad. Cons: Screen is very flimsy, Keyboard scratches screen when in a case It's an OK laptop. It does what I need it to (Which is school work).
