MSI GT279 / Advent 7555GX, comparison with the XPS M1730
4 January 2010
Excerpt: Well, I acquired this from PC world after dropping my old Dell piece of rubbish and it dying... ah well. Anyway I ended up with an Advent 7555 GX which is essentially a rebranded MSI GT729, and it saves me faffing with adding a new product etc... Anyway, onto the review, I got hold of the laptop and after having an XPS, it was surprisingly light and sleek, I figured the cooler would be horrendously large and make it weigh a ton but as it happens it's lighter and a lot...
Pros: fast, well built, really good value for money and beautiful looks
Cons: keyboard and touchpad are lacking, the touch - buttons are a little annoying
