Summary: Well, let me talk about my feeling about this computer. First, definitely it is worthy of its price at the time I bought it. (around $1850 in November 2014). Powerful enough to run any games (can handle Assassin Creed Unity easily). 256G SSD + 1G Hard Disk is excellent, and it's the main reason for me to choose this product among computers at this price and have 970M graphics. As an engineering student, I also need some CAD & CAM software.
Summary: This MSI is a solid ultraportable gaming laptop, that offers extended battery life and performance that is up there when it comes to high end gaming, but lacks in certain areas such as CPU power for more extensive tasks.
Thin, light, and powerfull but with a few minor pitfalls, especially for a developer.

Summary: Summary: I am a contract-developer that does a lot of travel and wanted something light, yet powerful enough to run all my development applications, a Virtual Machine or 2, and play the games I want as I am also a gamer. This is an OUTSTANDING powerhouse laptop for all those things. It runs every game I currently own (Blizzard titles and 332 steam titles) on the highest possible settings without a hitch.
Summary: MSI made some serious mistakes with this laptop, but for the price, I can forgive most of them. The specs listed was the primary reason I bought this beast, and that being said it does everything it's supposed to do. I can travel with a laptop and still be able to play games in my hotel room. The negatives are mostly nitpicks, but they might be important for someone else looking to buy this.
Summary: Nice laptop, i mean Extremely insane performance for the price, but it does have a gigantic CON: If you manage to break a key, or even the hinge that fits the key to the keyboard, be prepared to spend around 200-300 bucks more, since they have to replace the keyboard entirely, 250 usd in my country. they doesnt exchange you the one key or two, like most laptops, but the whole keyboard.
Summary: I really like this laptop. I have owned it now for 6 months and although a little pricy it has lived up to its name. I wanted a larger screen laptop that had enough power to play games while being super thin and lightweight. But if you want desktop power in a laptop I would stay away from this laptop. It can compete with most desktops but if you want to run games at extreme settings and have 60 plus frames a second I would buy a desktop with some titans.
Summary: Picked up one of these last week, very pleased with the performance. The thing is beautiful, the speakers are great, the screen isn't that bad for a TN panel, and while there was some bloatware on it, it wasn't more than 10 minutes to uninstall it. The model has actually been refreshed, so the chip is now a i7-4710HQ (+100mhz).
Summary: This is a really nice laptop. The keys feel soft, but also responsive, and the backlighting is a nice touch. You'll be booting up into Windows 8.1 within 5 seconds or so, and that's with you logging in. That said though, within the first two days I now have a red line on the right side of my screen - something I've never experienced in over 10 years of using a laptop (granted I have heard about it, just never had it happen to me).
