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).
Summary: Really nice, I've had this for about 6months now. Overall to sum up I LOVE IT TO BITS!!!! Pros: Very fast and capable Thin Light Sexy looking Decent Battery Life Somewhat durable Dual MSata + 2.5" Slot (perfect) Nice keyboard Decent Audio Has an audio in option - plug in a device to the middle audio port and it works as an audio in. Cons: FRONT LIGHTS ARE TOOOOO BRIGHT!!
Summary: I've had my laptop for about 2 weeks now. Dude to the circumstances of my current location, there were a few specs that I couldn't take out for a full spin but regardless here's my take on it. Pros -This baby is beautiful. Hands down, this is the best looking laptop I've owned. Sleek and lightweight. It picks up fingerprints and dust kinda easy but if your dropping 2k on this and not taking care of it properly then that's your problem.
Summary: Well, after originally ordering the Aorus X7 and then deciding to return it due to it having older generation 765m's I decided to pick up the gS70. My requirements were, 1. be able to drive 3 monitors. 2. plenty of room for storage 3. function as a desktop replacement for work and gaming Pros: - The price is good, and the laptop is thin and surprisingly light. I think they list it at about 5.8lbs and I'd say it's more or less around 6lbs.
Excerpt: The GS70 is an excellent laptop with tons of power and can run any current game on max settings while still running at least 30 fps. Very fast loading at start-up and when opening up programs. The weight is the best feature of this gaming laptop. I travel a lot and enjoy gaming so this laptop goes everywhere with me and going from a 9.7 lbs 17" laptop to this 5.7 lbs one makes a huge difference.
Summary: Pros: very fast, sleek and sexy, high quality built, lots of storage, thinnest and most portable 17inch laptop Cons: Heats up kinda fast, Track-pad is pretty terrible compared to the other laptop brands, laptop screen flexes a little bit when bent. Overall, this laptop is recommended, but beware of the track-pad because it does stuff you don't want it to do sometimes.
Summary: I have been very impressed with the MSI GS70 Stealth Pro-024. Pros: - Minimalist appearance, prior versions were blinged out, this one is just black without a lot of flash - Powerful - I'm able to run new games like BF4 and Titan Fall at 1920x1080 on high settings without a problem (strangely, when I tried the old CoD:Black Ops, it was laggy). Between the Nvidia 870m, the i7, and the RAM it has remarkable power for an ultrabook.
Excerpt: This thing is blazingly fast with options galore. What they pack in a chasis this thin is amazing. The only gripes are that it only came with Windows 8 drivers (7 is still predominant) and the rubber feet are very obtrusive (great for sitting on a desk to cool but a PITA to stick the laptop in a laptop bag since they snag every time). B&H had a great price with good shipping and were a pleaseure to work with.
Summary: My only concern is that it says MSI Gaming on the back. I understand that I bought a gaming laptop, but it comes off as childish anyway. Also, it uses those new UEFI hard drives, and that makes it way too hard to install linux for dual boot.
