Summary: This is a great laptop for mobile gaming. It plays all the latest and greatest at great frame rates and everything it does is very fast. The hardware is well put together in this small form factor. I love how mobile it is.
Pros: Powerful. Excellent screen. Light weight. Thin. Fast. Very very mobile.
Cons: Track pad is terrible. Multi-touch on the track pad doesn't work at all! I have all the options set correctly, downloaded the latest track pad firmware and software and it just doesn't work. That wouldn't be a big deal except there's no way to scroll with the pad, you have to use the arrow keys or click and drag the scroll bar. On a laptop that costs well over $1,500 it is inexcusably awful.
Pros: Great slim and light design. Large display for gaming and mutli window work. Great keyboard design by steel series. Customization to keyboard colors is excellent. Runs quiet even when maxing game settings. Insane speeds on bootup and program running on the super RAID 0 SSD's.
Cons: The mousepad. I thought upon the purchase maybe it was just faulty with the other customers but it's as bad as they say. Fortunately i'm a gamer and like most gamers we don't use a mouse pad to play games. The trackpad stops receiving input at times, and clicks when you don't want it to.
Problem with desktop menu, space bar doesn't work half of the time, bad touch pad.

Summary: If it would not have been about the keybord it would have been really nice, but because it was my first concern when I bought this PC I am really disapointed.
Pros: Im very happy for the spec, the ssd storage go very fast, the resolution is epic, the 16 go ram make me run many applications in the same time. The GTX 765 make me run many games and I really like the 17" wide screen to watch some video. I like how the computer is light to transport it.
Cons: I think that MSI could have done a better touch pad, it is pretty impossible to use it, if I would not have a mouse it would be infernal.
Summary: Overall, would I recommend this laptop to someone else? Yes and No. If you plan to use touchpad DO NOT buy this computer. Otherwise if you are looking for a super portable gaming laptop that is sure to amaze your friends, then definitely this is the computer for you. Otherwise buy a big bulky gaming laptop with a Blu-ray drive and SLI graphics.
Pros: This thing is fast. Lots of RAM. Plenty of HDD space. I have read that this thing is loud...I don't think it's loud at all. Build quality is superb. It's a beautiful computer. Extremely slim. Sweet gaming graphics.
Cons: No CD/DVD/Blu-ray drive. No SLI graphics cards (not a biggie as the draw is the size/weight). TOUCHPAD IS HORRIBLE. I cannot explain in words the frustration this touchpad has given me. If you plan on connecting a mouse to this thing then no big deal, but if you plan on using the touchpad then do not get this computer. I read the reviews and though "How bad can the touchpad actually be?", well my answer is super frustrating. Expensive. I find that you can get more for...
Summary: If I get this fixed I will update my rating.
Pros: Screen is great, minimal bloatware, fast, quiet nice minimal and sleek design.
Cons: The steelseries keyboard which I expected to be above par is mushy in the middle third and annoying to use. The left and right areas have a nice response. But in the middle centered around the 'l', if you lightly press on any key all the ones around it depress. I hope this is not how it is supposed to be. I will probably try to send it back if MSI would/could fix this. Nonetheless for this price I am disappointed, and will have to deal with the hassle and cost of ship...
Summary: Hoppades verkligen på att problemen jag läst om på diverse forum skulle vara sällsynta fall; värmeproblem och högljudd fläkt var något som oroade mig mest. Studerade denna maskin och andra potentiella alternativ i ett bra tag innan jag slog till - denna maskin såg ut att passa in bäst på mina krav, så vad gör man. Here goes... Den är inte bekväm att sitta framför var gällande ljudnivån; även då den inte har något att göra (idle - 0-1%).
