Can't play games, high chance of keyboard failure.

Summary: There's a huge problem with this series of laptops and it even makes typing this review very hard. The keyboard. There's a high chance that you will get a defective keyboard. I'm not going to bother constantly fixing what i am typing sso you can see what the problem iss. The 'ss' key iss randomly non ressponssive or it double types. The sspacebar isss always double typing. So imagine trying to play a game and your s key just random stops working.
Summary: I do not own a 'MSI',but have looked at and desired one. You would think for the price You would or should at least get a four (4) star rating. Personally , for the price I would not settle for anything less than 4 stars, it would not be worth the risk.
Summary: The system specs are amazing, the build quality is atrocious. Very plasticky, and the screen is so flexible and wobbly I though I'd tear it off every time I opened it. I ended up shipping it back, and getting the much better built MSI GS60 instead. Metal body goes a long way.
Summary: I like it very much for about 5 min, then I noticed a dead pixel, I try not to care about it but in a 2k laptop it can't be. The Steel Engine is broken there's some information about it on the web, it is a driver conflict, I know about computers and I still can't make it work, drivers upgrades, downgrades, bios, etc, nothing work. The keyboard arrived with a loose shift key.
Summary: Everything about the laptop was great until I powered it on. I have had this laptop for 2 months now and it just frustrates me. 1. After pressing the power button, the laptop turned on for a few seconds displaying the MSI start up logo and then shut off on its own. I waited a few minutes to see if anything was wrong, but it just stayed off. I had to press the power button again in able for it to work "normally.
Summary: This thing seems to be a good laptop and appears to look nice. Cons: Lets start with the Screen Panel the edges are sharp. the panel looks as if it was made in the 90's as the border is huge. The Mouse pad is useless as it does not want to track properly and continually jumps all over the place. The mouse pad is off centered to the keyboard so it gets in the way. The keyboard it self is not centered so the space bar is not centered in the keyboard.
mouse track pad is horrible it is inaccurate making use impractical even with updated software

Summary: I just receive the laptop today and I opened it. Well the MOUSE PAD DOES NOT WORK. I mean it works sometimes, but half the time it does not detect my swipes when swiping from left to right. When I swipe down, I have to do it very very slow for it to detect my downward swipes. Just like what others are saying, the mouse pad does not work correctly. I looked for the controls to change the sensitivity but I could not find them.
Summary: Updated 4/3/2014: The touchpad is terrible although i never use it and it has been disable but sometime after reboot its enable again and the top of the laptop keeps on touching it and opens random programs when it's closed. The power adaptor has failed again. The Laptop is shocking me (literally) as we speak. I don't do too many reviews but thought i would do one for this laptop. I will list the PROs first then CONs.
