this computer looks like it does have the potential to be a good ...

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. I kept getting the blue screen of death and a memory management error straight out of the box. So, you might be wondering why I gave this 2 stars instead of one. First, I'm hoping to receive a new, working unit in 2 days.
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). Of course when I opened the laptop and started it up, there were dead pixel(s) in the center/right of the screen.
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. Had absolutely zero problems running modern games on high settings. CONS: On the the problems... This thing churns out heat like Mt. Vesuvius.
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. I contacted Cust Serv and got an immediate response (paraphrasing) - send the entire machine back at my expense and then wait 4-6 weeks for it to be returned. BTW, we may not be returning the same machine.
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. I really do hope Win7 fixes the video stutter problems I have with my games right now..
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. Others were wanted but are in stock only briefly and were not available at the time and waiting 2-3 months is not a real option.
Summary: Достоинства: яркий экран, удобная клавиатура Недостатки: сильный шум охлаждения, сильная (периодами в 1 секунду) вибрация по корпусу после часа игры на высоких настройках, некачественный звук динамиков и тихий выход звука из аудиовыхода Убедительная просьба: Тщательно проверяйте до покупки
