Summary: I bought this laptop over a year ago and I'm still using it. It still plays lots of new games at medium/high settings. For the price I paid it was excellent value. Other laptops with the same specs, at the time of purchase cost upwards of $2000 and to get something with similar specs you'd have to spend around $3000. MSI may be new to the laptop game, but they've entered strong with this entry. There are a few cons however. The battery sticks out like a huge butt!
Summary: this laptop is a great deal and the overclocking button is awesome(although it isn't necessary because the laptop already runs plenty fast). I had shopped around for a long time looking for a good gaming laptop that is also a good deal and good quality, and this is the best laptop i could find. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a good gaming laptop.
Summary: I have owned this laptop for over a month now. It has not given me a single problem. I use it for gaming mainly. I run 2 WoW accounts at the same time on it, effortlessly. That is saying a lot for something priced this low. I have owned high end Dell and IBM products in the past, and am real picky about what I buy. But I am on a budget right now. I do not regret the decision at all.
Summary: Pros: This thing is amazing. With ATI Radeon 4850 DDR3 graphics and a stellar processor you can't lose. This thing was designed with the core gamer in mind. It may not beat those $3k+ machines out there but it's not supposed to. It can run any game out there and more with the power under its hood. The on the fly power setting changer is a great plus and very helpful for power management.
Summary: The first thing I did was plug in the power cord to charge the battery. 6 hours later, the power supply was still cold. Next day I charged for 4 hours. Same results. Need I say more! Goodbye MSI. And the manual was useless as for as charge time. The green charge light never went out, as it was supposed too.I rated this item 1 star because there is no "0" star.
Summary: I didn't know quite well the company (MSI), just that they manufactured and modified pc and laptop components. Now I can say this is a great company and laptop. Very fast, I play Live for Speed (LFS) with full settings in 1680x1050 resolution. The turbo mode is great! it makes a difference! although I never need it! so I guess it would be useful in the future. Compresses and decompresses rar files very fast (1gb in less than 3 minutes).
Summary: I have had this laptop for a couple of weeks now, and I can only say that it is honestly the best laptop I have ever owned. I have owned several before - including some Apple iBooks - but I can see myself using this laptop as my only and main computer for quite some time. The video card is superb, and every game that I have played through it: Runes of Magic, TF2 - and they both run at the highest setting, with everything maxed.
Summary: This is the easily the most cost-efficient gaming laptop on the market. Released only a month ago, it's very recent and its video card combined with a very good CPU, large and fast hard drive, and 4gigs of ram completely dominate nearly every laptop on the market under $2,000. It does only come with 32-bit version of Vista, but I borrowed my friend's 64-bit CD and just upgraded with the key from the pre-packaged 32-bit with no issues (and it's not illegal as far as I...
Summary: This is the best gaming laptop out there yet so get your hands on one!!!I've been using it for 4 weeks and everything is perfect with high fps in all the latest games!! Not to forget that I got a 10500 score with 3dmark 06 and 5800 in vantage.
