5 out of 5 eggsBad to the bone!!!

Pros: The speed in this laptop is super-fast, I game Everquest 2 with no problems right off the shelf; this was a great price for this powerfull package. The graphics are spot on, great color and clarity; there are zero lags during gaming or anyother times. The Dynaudio are the best laptop speakers I've seen to date, sound during both movies and gaming are very clear. Lastly, I love the option to turn off the mouse pad...priceless.

Cons: The reports that the keys are/can be tempermental at times is accuurate. I think I have the most issues with the space bar, but it's really just a small nuisance, not enough to take a full egg off for.

Other Thoughts: I would deffinately buy this laptop again...Newegg should think about bringing it back...I just might buy another. I did about 1 month of research before chosing and buying this laptop; if your not sure if you should buy this laptop, I would recommend to you to buy it...I'm sure you will like it as much as I am. You just can't beat the price for the package.

4 out of 5 eggsMy thoughts.

Pros: Great looking laptop with the brushed metal look.
Not super flashy to carry around.
Surprisingly Light.
Sharp display.
Extremely quick, Graphics lack slightly, but for the price i can't complain.
I love the light up keyboard.
Speakers are extremely loud when you need them to be.
Charger port is where it belongs, In the back.

Cons: The keyboard seems to be not fitted totally right like the above comments. It bows out to the right of the touch pad.

The key's seem to not always register every time i type (More often than not).


I'm not sure if its worth the hassle to see if MSI will do anything about it?


In the description it says it comes with anti-reflective screen, but upon arrival it seems this one did not come with that?

The box also states it has a glossy screen, Which i did not want.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a great gaming laptop. If your looking for a gaming laptop i can defiantly recommend this one. But to be honest, i would just get the GT780 for the extra 200-300$. (with the nVidia GT560 and 1TB HDD)



It would have gotten 5 eggs, but it lacks the overhauled keyboard i thought it was going to have (Missing keystrokes/Fitment issues.)


And the anti-reflective screen, which to some people is very important and extremely well lit areas.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good

Pros: I'm not really an expert on gaming laptops as this is my first, but I am very impressed with the performance so far. I can run powerful games on high settings without heating issues. The design is great and it feels light for its size. The display has a higher resolution than my desktop pc's much larger lcd monitor. While the keyboard design still doesn't best a good desktop gaming keyboard, it is leaps and bounds better than the keyboards that most laptops have. MSI's custom touch-panel at the top is very useful as well with buttons for turning the fans to full-speed or turning on/off keyboard led's among other things. The speakers are also amazing. I didn't think a laptop could sound that good. Also, I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of excessive amounts of bloatware as a lot of pc's come with way too much unnecessary software. The 9-cell battery is nice too since most laptops seem to have 6-cell batteries.

Cons: Only small nit-picky complaints:
-The surface material of the touch-pad is a tad off-set, as if the laptop was assembled just a bit too hastily. The amount was so small that it took me four days before I even noticed, and I use a mouse anyway.
-The keyboard bowls outward slightly in the middle, but it is so minimal that I can't even feel it and I can only tell when I look really closely at it. Again, I feel that had to do with the assembly and not the laptop itself.
-I have noticed some missed keystrokes, mainly when hitting the space bar from the right side. However, these happen very rarely and haven't affected my gaming whatsoever.
-Two or three of the keyboard led's don't completely match the color of the rest of the keyboard (but are still close). This seems like it may be deliberate though as the affected keys are the control and alt keys on the right side. Again, not a big issue for me.

Other Thoughts: I gave this a 5/5...on a scale to ten I'd have to give it a 9.5/10 due to some minor assembly quirks but overall I'm very impressed.

5 out of 5 eggsI LOVE THIS LAPTOP!

Pros: AWESOME! Great design, perfect backlite keyboard great for typing and gaming. Good audio and picture it plays movies perfectly.

Cons: The top touch sensitive bar is very sensitive at first until you get used to it, it was also a little tricky to understand how to change the colors on the keys.

Other Thoughts: overall a very good laptop, and great for gaming!!

2 out of 5 eggsWell, it looks cool.

Pros: -It runs very fast
-looks great

Cons: -Keyboard misses strokes, when typing there is a noticeable amount of missing letters for no reason.

-Mouse pad tends to jump randomly

-keyboard wasn't fitted in right, the front part tends to jump out of the computer a little


It seems like it just came out of the factory without being inspected. The keyboard sticking out is very noticeable.

Other Thoughts: For a 1500$ computer I expected a lot more, but I can barely type without having to backspace and correct myself.

I am about to use it for gaming, and hope that it doesn't miss keys there or else this computer will have become completely useless...and I am leaving for college in about a week and a half, so taking care of returning and re-ordering would be a huge hassle
