4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop for the price

Pros: Blu Ray
Fast Processor
Great Graphics Card

Cons: After about a year and a half of use one of the hinges holding the screen decided to snap the plastic backing off of the laptop making it now impossible to use :(

Other Thoughts: A great laptop overall but the cheap plastic on the back of the case made the life of the laptop end abruptly

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible computer

Pros: worth every cent. Fantastic computer, for on the go, or for at-home work. Very good graphics, great for games - i've tryed crysis, gets good fps. Awsome touch sencer buttons above the keyboard that lets you turn on turbo mode and stuff - so cool. Looks nice too. Not really any keyboard flex and the w, a, s, and d keys are marked with arrows. Pretty good audio and the finger-mouse pad thing works great. Good buy for sure.

Cons: Honestly i can't find anything wrong with the thing!

Other Thoughts: none.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, but not perfect

Pros: I won't write any pro's because if you're reading this, you already know all of them.

Cons: The con's, the only things I personally dislike about this laptop is the flexing of the laptop, the easy smugging of finger prints, and the fact that I had my laptop delivered with a blown right speaker.

5 out of 5 eggsI could not be happier with this laptop

Pros: Powerful hardware - 9800 GS has taken anything I have thrown at it

Screen - 1680x1050 looks wonderful, blu-ray especially. Some glare when outdoors, but nothing unmanageable.

Turbo and ECO functions - While I initially was skeptical, both of these functions are wonderful. The turbo function (set to 20% in the BIOS) makes a notifiable difference in framerates and encoding speeds. The ECO functions (5 levels) are quick presets and Turbo Battery nearly doubled my battery life (almost 5 hours toting it around with Wi-Fi on). Playing DVD's averages about 2.5 hours.

The one-touch buttons (play/pause ect) actually work with most applications, and the user set button is awesome.

Heat - I played Crysis with the Turbo on for over 3 hours and I could still set it on my bare legs and hardly notice the heat at all. The vent on the right however does get warm (go figure).

Overall this is a great buy, I have not been disappointed, nor do I think you will be either.

Cons: The brushed aluminum and one-touch button pad are mild fingerprint magnets. Easily cleanable with your shirt or some other handy cloth.

The blue lit one-touch buttons with red/black color scheme seems odd for a while.

The speakers are a little tinny and lack a full sound, but it comes with 7.1 audio out, so all your problems are solved.

Other Thoughts: After doing considerable research for laptops and settling on this, I was expecting a few issues that others had mentioned, specifically After doing considerable research for laptops and settling on this, I was expecting a few issues that others had mentioned, specifically a wobbly keyboard and clock down issues off of AC. I havent experienced either of these or any other major flaws.

My keyboard was solid and feels wonderful to type on, the Fn keys and Ctrl keys are swapped, which took some getting used to, but if it really bothers you there is a BIOS revision which swaps the function of the two keys.

As for clockdown, I was able to play blu-ray movies flawlessly in the "Movie" eco mode, and most games (CS:S, WoW) played fine in the "Gaming" eco mode (albeit not terribly long, but that is to be expected with any laptop)

The case and construction feels solid and has actually already survived a counter height fall with flying colors.

I definitely recommend this laptop to an

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: this lappy is GREAT. Excellent components for the price. It is very quiet, does not get too hot, it is the perfect size for someone who wants a computer with afterburners, but not with a huge wide screen.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: loaded up win 7 right away, and it blazes on this thing. Downloaded the drivers from msi's website, though most everything is plug n play. I see the keyboard flex everyone is talking about however this is not a problem, just takes about 5 minutes of getting used to. Great laptop

5 out of 5 eggsWork of art

Pros: I was torn between getting this laptop and the ASUS G50VT-X6. It was a really tough decision, but I decided to go with this one since I like the design and look of the MSI better. Also, the ASUS wouldn't have fit in my back pack since the dimensions of it are closer to a 16'' or 17'' due to them expanding the border/casing of the laptop.

When all is said and done, this laptop just looks and feels like a work of art. It runs everything very fast and smoothly; my games have never looked or played better.

Another thing worth mentioning is newegg's delivery service. I ordered this laptop Wednesday afternoon and it was at my house Thursday afternoon; it got to my doorstep within a 24 hour time period! Now that's quick!

Cons: Only one slight con. This comes with 32 bit Vista so it can't utilize that extra gig of ram that this laptop has. I plan on upgrading this to Windows 7 when it's officially released (possibly the 64 bit version, but only if Cisco fixes the compatibility issue with the VPN client, oy).

I may/not have more cons after using this a bit more. I highly doubt it, but we'll see what happens.

Other Thoughts: I took the advice of the previous buyer and adjusted the Turbo button to overclock the processor speed from 15% to 20%. I may consider "flashing" the video card, but I may not need to.

All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and especially happy with the speed at which this laptop was delivered to my house. Thanks, newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsThe Laptop is stellar

Pros: Super Fast- I have played the crisis demo on high with 1680x1050 Resolution
Great Screen- The screen is high resolution and looks good, not as good as my HDTV but still good.
Blu-ray- Blu-ray is great
Esata- It is so much faster than USB 2.0 (Geting transfer rates 2x as high or more)
Blue-Tooth- Haven't used it yet, but I will to hook up to a headset, my phone and maybe a mouse and keyboard
Wireless N- Again haven't used it but it is a lot faster and has better range
HDMI- I used it to hook up to my reciever and HDTV and it is great
TURBO BUTTON- This button allows me overclock with a slide of my finger and make this thing even faster
Other Buttons- All of the touch sensors are great
Webcam- I used it last night to talk on skype and it was great.
4gb of ram - Fast
Core 2 Duo P8600 - Faster
9800m GS- Even Fast
Did i mention this thing is super fast.

Cons: Like other poeple have said, there is some keyboard flex but it isn't really that bad. I am using a wireless keyboard and mouse though.
Only comes with 32 bit home premium, I got the ultimate steal from MS and upgraded to 64bit ultimate for only 60 bucks.
It doesn't come with a restore disk (see other thoughts)
You can't boot off of esata, or at least I can't becasue it doesn't reconize my drive on startup

Other Thoughts: Make sure to run the program that promps you to create a restore disk. I didn't and tried to upgrade to Ultimate and ended up wiping my hard drive and wasted 3 days getting it activated because I couldn't put Home premium back on there in order to be able to us the upgrade license key. Eventually found a work around though.

ALSO !THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT! if you are using the turbo button, go into the bios and change the overclock percentage from the default 15% to 20% so you can get a little more performance. You can also overclock the video card because this laptop does well getting rid if the heat; I haven't yet but will soon.

This laptop is great, get it now....what are you waiting for?

5 out of 5 eggsNice Rig

Pros: This machine will run anything you throw at it including the most high tech and latest games in full res. The keyboard does have a pronounced flex to it, but nothing you won't get used to. I use the computer in my office and at home. I work as an attorney, so I do a lot of typing and have found the mouse cursor to wander now and then when I inadvertently hit the mouse pad, which is set off to the left. The keyboard is a bit smaller b/c of the full number pad, but again not a big deal to me anyway. Graphics are unbelievable. Blue ray drive is awesome. So far I have been blown away by this notebook.

Cons: I just ran into a problem with the wireless card not connecting so I am about to go on MSI's tech support website and see how the service is in regard to solving this possible hardware failure.

Other Thoughts: Buy it, you won't be sorry!

5 out of 5 eggsUltimate Gaming Laptop

Pros: Great Gamer - should keep you update for the next year. 9800 GS with 1GB is awesome. Bought this for Battlefield 2 and future Battlefield 1943. BF2 runs on all high settings 102fps. SOlid performer. Screen resolution is awesome and really comes in handy sniping. The fan blows heat on your mouse hand, not too bad. Laptop cooler recommended for extended gaming.

Cons: Keyboard flex is there but not bad. I'm use to it now. Also the WSAD keys have there own arrows on them. Kind of nice.

Other Thoughts: Wanted something that had the specs to last at least two years. Spent a little more but I'm glad to have the higher resolution screen, 1GB Video Ram and Blu-ray drive.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI Growth Pains

Pros: Nice looking Case, Fairly well constructed. Keyboard Flexing Minimal on this Lappy{#2} Explain in Cons! Keyboard layout excellent, soft touch controls work great, Screen resolution Impressive, Turbo Mode works, on the fly when needed. O/C,s 16% OEM 2398Mhz OC,d= 2779Mhz OK, for the Gaming /Video Performance! She took everything I gave her, at full settings with or W/O OCing without a Hiccup or degradation in performance! Quake4, Crysis Series, DF, etc. This lappy vents the heat well, as long as it gets good air flow, and this puppy gets hot! But the GPU and the CPU,s stayed steady. NO THERMAL ISSUES! MSI has always been great for their MB,s Never had a bad build using them, always great features {If your a modder}, They designed this MB to accommodate the supporting HW, and produce a nice symbionic relationship between the 2 for a High Performance Lappy that Has my respect in regards to Desktop Performance in a Mobile Environment

Cons: 1st unit arrived fast from NE, Hardware failures right outa the box, keyboard flex on that early model much more pronounced! NE RMA,d It NP. They replaced to me a new unit, NE,s the Greatest! After 2 days BIOS became unstable, I flashed with their most recent Fix[not even on website yet] which equates to great tech support, they E-mailed it to me! Also immediately download and install the latest drivers for the GPU, File comes with the PHYSX controller, The Video Card really comes to life then!! Main Gripe: Lappy system is very software sensitive, But I think its because of Vista OS, I came very close to reformatting the HDD and installing XP Pro or Linux. Also No control over Dram timing or FSB, Multiplier locked! WHY? MSI has never done this B4, earlier BIOS files[4 this Lappy] had the DRAM timing selection options, But not on the recent BIOS revisions!!??? Guess they dont want us pushing it the edge. Should have choice of OS install, instead of 1 flavor!

Other Thoughts: Over clocking feature only works with AC adapter connected, No OCing in Battery Mode, and you must have the System Control Manager program installed and enabled or NO OC features!
Over ALL, Not a bad lappy after massaging it. Runs fast and strong! A little Over Priced! But With Intel and NVidia ingredients installed I see why! Other MSI gaming series use AMD and ATI. Lower Hardware cost. Always been a AMD man. But this Intel processor Rocks!! This lappy has made me a Gamer with skills once again, cause the resolution and clarity is outstanding, with frame rates that dont slow down. JMO though!!
