Summary: I needed a laptop for college and I also needed a little processing power to back up what I enjoy doing. This thing takes care of pretty well most of my needs. It handles the most menial tasks without twitching and plays anything from Team Fortress 2 to Modern Warfare 2. Pros: Pretty good graphics processor 6gb of RAM good speakers Nice hotkey buttons along the top.
Summary: So this is my first laptop and my first try with MSI. I did quite a bit of research for a laptop since I am an animation student and I wanted something capable of 3D graphic programs (Autodesk Maya)as well as some gaming. I've had it for almost a month now and I love it. So far nothing major that is on the down side. There are some minor things though.
