5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: This is a very nice laptop as it satisfies most of my needs: 1080p, 17", matte display, GTX570 and backlit keyboard. It also provides quite a few extras that I use a bit such as the display off hotkey, cinema keys (video), button to turn on/off touchpad and the overclock key. The sound on this laptop is excellent also! I've had this for about a month and its been absolutely rock solid. I also like that I can eventually upgrade to an SSD and I also have two memory expansion slots vacant.

Cons: HEAVY! BULKY! It's not a very portable laptop to say the least. I traveled with it twice so far and it's not a light thing to carry to work and home with the A/C adapter.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this to a person that needs a powerful pc for gaming, video, photography, etc but if you are looking for decent portability, I would recommend looking for a different laptop as this is just too large/heavy to be toting around very much. For myself this is a perfect fit as I don't travel often (3-5 times annually) so the laptop sits in one spot often but I do like that it is portable vs. a desktop.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good laptop

Pros: The laptop has very good sound and the screen looks really sharp. The webcam is a lot better than my old laptops and is noticeably better through Skype. The touch keys near the monitor work very well and are a neat touch to the laptop. Ran the system through 3DMark11 and it scored a 2986, from my experience, with laptops that's pretty good. This isn't really a pro on the product but the MSI Live Update does a good job at scanning all hardware/software on the laptop and looking for new drivers

Cons: Mousepad seems to be the biggest con on the system. Need a lot of work. Tracking is fine but scrolling and tapping to click are really bad. Sometimes tapping to click jumps the mouse a good 2 inches from where it was. Scrolling is really choppy and it jumps lines it doesn't actually scroll. Though it was just a driver problem so i installed the drivers for the mousepad and made sure the device manager read the mousepad but it still remains the same.

Other Thoughts: Other's have said the screen is very flimsy and the whole construction for the laptop seems very cheap. The screen is not flimsy and does not show any more flex than any other laptop i've worked with. The rest of the construction does not seem cheap, it's true is almost all plastic but holds up fine in my opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Gaming Laptop

Pros: Awesome performance. Geforce GTX 570M graphics and a great LED-backlit display. Quad-core/hyper-threaded i7. Steel Series keyboard is very durable and works very well. I have been able to run all of my games at the highest settings with the beta Nvidia 285.62 driver installed. The Dynaudio sound system produces the best sound I have ever heard, from a built-in sound system on a notebook! The Cinema Pro mode makes movies and games sound great! I also like the switch that turns the touch pad on and off, so you do not accidentally hit it while playing games.

Cons: Battery life is not great (I expected this, as this is a gaming machine, not a ultra-portable low-power laptop).

Other Thoughts: This laptop is full of hardware potential! In a price vs. hardware comparison (what you get for your money), this laptop has to be at the top. Quality hardware at a very competitive price.
