Summary: Have nothing but positive things to say about the laptop itself. Everything positive you read about the experience of the laptop is true. Here's where it goes down hill. MSI is by far one of the most useless companies when it comes to repair/refund/anythingwrongwithyourmachine.
Summary: The product is fine....does what it says. That being said, I absolutely cannot recommend and MSI product. Why? I cannot emphasize this enough: you will NEVER get through to Customer Service at MSI.
Summary: I actually bought this almost exclusively for work (which is why it took me so long to post this review), but now that I'm on vacation things have really come to a head... The graphics on this damn thing just. Do. Not. Work.
Summary: Everything about the build and overall quality that others have stated in the reviews here I agree with. However... From my review title you can see that I have a problem with the noise level this laptop generates. I am not a hardcore gamer.
Summary: The computer is great once you reboot a few times, elite dangerous with oculus is awesome (so runs all current gfx software super nice), the computer weighs nothing, power block is a bit on the gigantic side, would love msi to make a power block the size of razer's.
This is not mentioned anywhere in the specs and is a pretty significant issue especially in something marketed as a 'gaming' ...

Summary: Pros: Thin Light 4k GTX 970M (fast for gaming) Cons: 48Hz (huge negative) No way to disable Optimus. Gold in color. Other Thoughts: I have been waiting and waiting for a 15 inch 4k upgrade that wasn't significantly heavier/bigger than my macbook pro retina.
