5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Fast
Inexpensive
dedicated video card good for gaming/video

Cons: Really bright led lights in the front, fine during the day, but can annoying at night.

Other Thoughts: I've had this laptop for around six months now, and have had zero issues with it. It plays EverQuest 2 at mid to mid-high settings without a hitch, a very crisp, bright screen is great for watching streamed HD content. No problems with wifi that others seem to have. The bright LEDs in the front are really more of annoyance than an actual con. I will be purchasing from MSI again

5 out of 5 eggsgood purchase

Pros: great price and plenty fast for internet and email use. Awesome customer service (returned within 7days) for an RMA issue. I'd buy another.

Cons: bulky and heavy, screen size is large but with a lower resolution (1366x768, I prefer smaller icons) and the camera quality is awful with no software available to adjust settings.

Other Thoughts: RMA issue was half the keyboard died, nothing wrong with the PC functionality. I'd buy another. Fries had them for less than here.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nothing good about the computer.

Cons: I ordered the computer and opened it up and the screen had severe discoloration. If that wasn't enough, I attempted to log on a couple hours later with the username/password I created and was unable to. I had the computer for 2 days and that was 2 days too long.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Laptop

Pros: Nothing any other laptop can't do.

Cons: Cannot remain connected to a wireless signal for more than 10 minutes at a time. VERY annoying. Is not quick to recover the connection. Keyboard was designed poorly. Cooling fan runs constantly.

Other Thoughts: Wish I would have gone with a better brand.

2 out of 5 eggsLost 3 eggs for Wifi problems

Pros: power, HD playing, great sound

Cons: wifi, wifi, wifi

Other Thoughts: MSI CR500 w/ T4500

Bad news first. Wifi problems will make you want to return it. Wifi will find a router to connect to about half the time, at home. The card does not seem to power up. Disable and reenable does not work. Nor does the button above the keyboard. Shutting it down, crossing your fingers may do the trick, but only about 75% of the time.

Once connected, it will not recover if pc comes back from sleep or hibernate cycle. Effectively, no "Eco" modes or battery saving mode can be practically used.

Shame that the "new driver" from July 2010 does not fix this problem.

Good news is that it's very cheap, powerful, runs cool, good speakers (if you know how to tweak the advanced features) Also excellent HDMI interface (very smart about the TV it's connecting to) Nvidia did a nice job with HD playback-handles everything 1080i avchd with CPU % less than 80.

So, I'm looking for a new internal card or the new half inch usb wifi dongle. Another $20 to $30.
