Summary: This is a gaming laptop expected for parts to go in and be upgraded by the consumer, When I first opened this laptop expecting to upgrade to 16gb and install my SSD hard drive into the system I am greeted by the warranty void if removed sticker on the back of the laptop.
Avoid - Defective RAM in both the initial and replacement units.

Summary: I was and remain quite impressed with both the outward design and the specifications of this laptop. The screen is superb. The keyboard is a gamer's dream. The backlit keyboard is excellent for use in darker areas. There are a lot of pluses to this machine, but none of them outweigh the minuses.
Summary: This is more of a review concerning MSIs business practices rather then on the PC itself. Laptop was received quickly from Beach Audio. I went to install SWTOR and it failed on the first DVD. 5 minutes later I had a Blue Screen crash. The laptop has since crashed so many times I lost count.
