Summary: purchased in 9/12 for 899$. I was alternating between this laptop and my desktop. Its the answer to the performance and portability that i needed. Gfx card performed like my stock gtx 260 of old with the exception of it being on a lappy.
Pros: Good price at time gtx570m Fast Plays most game at decent settings Love the screen Love the Keyboard
Summary: It was an excellent value. I got it end of life when it was discontinued and got a great deal on Newegg. I use this laptop everyday. and while it does not completely replace my desktop for gaming, it does an excellent job.
Pros: very Fast Runs almost all games with more than acceptable settings and framerates Runs pretty cool for how powerful it is
Summary: This is my 2nd Msi laptop and aside from there customer service being somewhat shaky...there products are top notch..
Pros: Excellent graphics, excellent cooling system, does not run hot whatsoever...Supremely designed and keyboard looks amazing..I love everything about this laptop...runs everything i throw at it on high settings and laughs..I would buy again in a heart beat...Lovin it...
Summary: my second one, own a 215 model i bought almost year ago and it never dissapointed me though almost paid $700 more fot that one. Got this for $1,000 and even more mem and lil higher cpu....awsome deal! Adding ssd to this one too...for sure!
Pros: great desktop replacement, i like the design although....who cares...it has to work as described and it does, play games and then some, love keyboard!, really good speakers, stable platform all around, added 256gb ssd which is almost must have to complete this machine.
Summary: this laptop is amazing, runs borderlands 2 like a monster, and no problems can come of it, as long as you take good care of it. great for someone who is looking for a good laptop and cheap as well
Pros: great processor, 12gb of ram, and a good graphics card... no problems will come :)
Cons: extreamly big for a laptop, recommended if your okay with the bulk size
Summary: I wanted a nice gaming computer that wasn't over 2 grand and I picked up this beast for 1400$ it takes everything I throw at it with ease. Then when it starts getting a little warm I turn on the fan and cools fast. Want to play in the dark? No problem! Turn on the keyboard lights.
