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. Don't want the whole thing lit up like a Christmas tree? You can turn off all lights but the left side for computer gaming.
Best Performance & Gaming Laptop for Best Price. A True Desktop Replacement!

Summary: I use this for graphics work and also for recreational gaming. It is very sleek and although it is a beast of a laptop and thicker than most laptops, the fact remains that it is still actually portable and not particularly heavy. On the other hand, if you're looking for a basic laptop that is lightweight, this might not be for you. This laptop has as much power as an Alienware laptop but is thinner, lighter, much more aesthetically appealing, and a fraction of the price.
Summary: I love this laptop. Yes, the fan is noisy. Yes it gets hot sitting on your lap. However, both of these small issues can be fixed with a $20 laptop cooler. The graphics, sound and overall performance blow away anything I have every owned. It plays every high end game I have loaded at max settings. I bought a refurbished one and saved a ton of money. I couldn't be happier.
Summary: Review title says it all. This computer is one of the best I've found on the internet for the price it's listed at. Only thing I suggest is - VIEW ALL NEW (MSI G Series GT780DX-406US 17.3-Inch) LAPTOPS TO FIND A SELLER FOR < $1500 SO YOU CAN GET A CHEAPER 3 YEAR WARRANTY. You'll spend a couple dollars extra for shipping but since it's listed as a $1200 - $1500 computer you save alot more on a cheaper warranty.
Summary: I bought this laptop not knowing what to expect as i had originally intended to purchase a machine from alienware. After searching for cheaper alternatives I came across the MSi GT780DX. Not only was it cheaper than its dell made equivalent (by over $200), but it's specifications were far better. 12 GB or ram compared to 4 GB!!!! NO contest.... (and that's not the only specification that is better).
Summary: This laptop will play anything you can throw at it skyrim, swtor, ect. 1080p Rez is very clear and the matte Finnish on the screen is also awesome. I never drop down below 30 fps in any game on ultra setting. This is the best laptop for the price. Believe that because I've been looking for a long time and this by far beats out the compitition by far.
Summary: I got this laptop on Fri Jan 6 and am happy with it so far. I don't like to leave reviews too quickly, so I will just say that there have been only minor problems thus far. I will update this review after I've really put the machine through it's paces, so be sure and come back in a week or two. I just want to say, that if you are looking for a gaming laptop, this one has not disappointed so far. 1/8/2013 STILL LOVING THIS LAPTOP!!
Summary: The GT780DX stays very Cool under Load, consistently pushing the graphics the GPU temperature never rises beyond 40c. A welcomed changed from previous gaming PC configurations I have owned. You will be able to tell the difference after the first 45 minutes of game play. No noise.
Summary: OK, it took me months of searching for a notebook. I started looking for a notebook around August and there were a couple of them that piqued my interest. That list included the Asus G74, Alienware M17x, HP Envy 17, and the Dell XPS 17. I wanted a gaming notebook, but more then that - I wanted a notebook that would be future proof for a couple of years well as my Gateway FX was when I bought it. Knowing this, I know for sure that I made the right choice.
