Summary: Fantastic performance for the price paired with top notch production quality makes this the sweet spot in gaming laptops. Significantly more solid feeling than the Asus G73 I owned previously, and the SteelSeries keyboard is a joy to use. Not absurdly huge for the power, and doesn't get so hot as to render me sterile if I try to game in my lap. Absolutely grand.
Summary: Best gaming laptop for the money by far, I have had mine for about 4 months now and has not gave me a bit of trouble. I can play almost any game with graphics maxed out without any lag what so ever. The speakers sound amazing for laptop speakers. I have seen a couple reviews saying they felt like the keyboard was to "flimsy" and I don't find that true at all, this one has a good solid feel to it.
Summary: Bought this cause i needed something more portable for work and my own projects, With 12GB of ram and a very nice processor can't beat what you get for the price. Like most should do is read reviews and see what others have said about it. People said that the left side gets warm when its on, this has only happened when I had maybe 5 windows of Visual Studio, 6 opened tabs of Dreamweaver, Lightroom, and 4 photos in Photoshop, then i could feel the heat, so just turned on...
Summary: Ok so i've finally gotten to writing this review after being able to use this for some time. So to start off, this laptop is great. Good for gaming, fast, and overall great. The GTX video card in this, it can handle most all games at normal - high quality with high frame rates. I tried out games like Fallout, Skyrim, Dayz, and ARMA 3. All run fantastic.
Summary: So far excellent laptop after 6 weeks of use. First time MSI owner, I was worried at first but if you like the specs and description it won't fall short of either. I had a 'stuck' pixel after 4 weeks, but by turning the screen blue and lightly rubbing the pixel on the screen it became unstuck. I'm hoping that doesn't become a common issue. Overall though, the laptop is fast and has handles multiple different games I've thrown at it on ultra settings.
Summary: My son LOVES it!! He says he can play ANY computer game at maximum settings without any problems. He LOVES the customizable light up keyboard! It really does look totally sweet and runs like a tank - monster - "insert teenage power-words here".
