Good for it's price.
Pros: MSI is a some what obscure brand in the world of consumer electronics so it's a shame that some people shy away from a great product such as this. The look of the thing is that of some higher end models, many glossy surfaces for your fingers to muck up. The keyboard is very spacious and the keys themselves are spaced nicely as well. Battery power all depends on how you set the options. At its most efficient i eeked out about 7 hours streaming multimedia and web browsing, however some performance is sacrificed. I have it set at max performance even when on batteries which sharply decreases battery but should I ever feel the need to be eco i can switch power management on the fly. Screen is very bright, but I felt resolution was somewhat lacking which is expected given that this is a budget laptop. Speakers are decent enough. My favorite thing about this laptop though, definitely has to be the multi-touch track pad. It makes navigating around the OS a breeze, all you need is 3 fingers.
Cons: Although it looks like a more expensive laptop, it feels like it's price would suggest, plastic....everywhere. The keys lack a lot of depth, though this is probably a personal thing since i'm use to typing on a mechanical keyboard. My biggest gripe about it though is the speed. Not of AMD's Fusion APU but the hard drives, at 5400rpm it definitely feels like the performance potential is being held back.
Other Thoughts: An SSD upgrade would definitely improve the performance by leaps and bounds honestly. I would recommend this for kids who are heading off to college, which is why i bought it for my sister as a gift. It's affordable, stylish, and overall a well rounded machine for it's price.

Pros: This laptop is great it has a great battery in it so it stands for what the box says. The chicklet keyboard is great and it does make a big difference when typing. The discrete graphics on thsi laptop are great i can max on team fortress 2 with 30 fps and a few other games on mediem settings. If you are a casual gamer you will like this laptop. the touch pad has a nice texture to it which will make it very nice when moving around on the screen. The webcam on this is great and sure looks like 720p. Has adecuate cooling and i would recomend this laptop to anyone
Cons: Nothing other then the processor can feel a bit week one in a while but thats not a big deal.
