Summary: I bought this laptop in December 2013 and paid $1,500 for it. Out of the box it came with some of the keyboard lights broken. After about 8 months I started having issues with overheating while playing games. The fan started coming on full blast for a minute or so then going back to normal.
Summary: MSI's inability to provide me with a laptop that works longer than several months has lead me to hate both them and this product. I purchased this laptop because of its sheer power, relatively cheap price, and cool stealth-bomber look.
Summary: Returned as of 2013. Computer was little slow at startup and had lots of power behind it but the unpacking it was very confusing. It looked like a toddler had wrapped it and shoved it in a box.
Summary: One of my HDs fried after only 1-1/2 years! It just doesn't measure up to all the hype. Slower than it should be with what's under the hood. Save yourself the headache and heartache and buy ASUS! I regret not spending a few hundred more and getting what I truly wanted.
Summary: This is my second MSI gaming computer. the first one lasted 6 years. this one is nearly unusable for gaming. The Pro's are: A very good processor lots of fast ram great video card 7200 rpm hard drive. not a ton of useless bloatware, but enough to annoy.
Summary: I've choose 3 stars because the laptop has some problems at the startup and I have to restart it 3 times to start well. for be specific... when you press the button to turn it ON, the circles of Windows system not appear or doesn't move so I have to restart again.
Summary: Let me just say i looked for at least 2 months before making the decision to buy this computer. Specs , price , reviews all over the place the whole 9 and finally made my mind on the MSI Laptop.
Summary: Arrived with the w, s, x, e, d, c, r, 3, and 4 keys not working unless you supply 10 lbs of force. Also, counted nearly a dozen dead pixels. Make sure you set up a light colored background upon setup and check for black, dead spots.
