Summary: I own the MSI M675. I got it for 799 Euro including WinXP and I think its worth the price. I agree with the battery life which is horrible 1 1/2 hours is much too less. Besides, I am really happy considering the price I paid. The Test itself is fair and considering an higher price (for example 1000 Euro plus) I would also reconsider my decision and maybe get a better one for this money.
Pros: Design, Webcam, Microphone, Nice Design, Good Screen, good temperature control, not noisy, recommandable as desktop replacement
Summary: I had a friend who blindly bought a MSI laptop - however, not this model. Apart from having a relatively decent screen, it crashed several times from turning it on every day and then subsequently broke after about a week of use. Terrible. I would absolutely NOT recommend MSI laptops (I'm a Microsoft IT Partner, so I know) to anyone. If you're willing to spend $1,700 - $2,300, go to Sony, or Dell! You'll get something better!
Pros: Okay screen.
Cons: Extremely shoddy build quality, terrible battery, tacky design, broke after week of use.
