Summary: I was so excited to get this laptop. I've been a Mac person for a while, but needed a Windows operating computer for my computer programming class. Unfortunately, the computer I received wasn't a working unit.
Summary: Bought- 10/2014 Price- $1300.00 approx My brand new laptop arrived in a flimsy box all battered and barely held together by a single strand of packing tape. There was internal padding and the laptop was in its original sealed box (with a dented corner).
Summary: To begin, I ended up sending this laptop back to Amazon. PROS: For the value, this is a great purchase. It's a very functional design with a GREAT keyboard. The finish and overall aesthetic of the laptop is wonderful. Looks great and performs well for the size and the price.
Whats going on MSI?? My previous laptop from you was better!

Summary: I'm going to make a long story short. It has really boss specs, like this laptop tore through games like it was nothing. But heating issues ultimately lead to its downfall and me returning it. Even with a cooling pad it could reach over 80c in as little as 20 minutes.
Summary: I've had the machine 7 months now. While the machine started out fabulously; it started hanging frequently. During troubleshooting (I troubleshoot computers for a living), I saw that the hard drive was starting to go due to numerous bad block reports.
Summary: I have only tried a few games so far to test the video card and processor speed, with a disappointing result. I am not sure yet whether it is because of its OS (Win8) or the hardware itself, but I plan on a clean install of Win7 instead this weekend.
Summary: A nagging problem with my previous PC and its resultant absence at service for almost a month led me to consider its retirement and replacement. A number of different laptops from several brands had been recently assessed and each had some shortcomings or insoluble problems.
