MSI, Amazing Company
Pros: MSI does a wonderful job putting this laptop gamer together. The hardware choices are excellent and the bloatware is minimal. I originally planned on doing a re-install of a fresh OS when I got it, but there wasn't a lot of unusable nonsense installed on it. The laptop easily slices through games like L4D2 with frames over 100FPS mostly. It does a decent job on harder games like Metro 2033 and STALKER, F3AR, Black OPS. Definately a well rounded laptop with top notch build quality.
Cons: The touch sensitive buttons along the top of the keyboard need getting some used to...they are kinda hard to figure out at first. After a brief learning curve on them, they operate fine now. The GPU automatically downclocks heavily when not plugged into a wall. It goes from 575MHz down to 74MHz which basically kills any game-play. I know it does it for battery savings, but I would like to be the one to control it. Even MSI afterburner can't clock up the GPU when it is on battery.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a well built computer to play games on the go at decent frame-rates, this is you baby, and for ~$1800, it's a steal. I do wish some of these gaming laptops didn't clock down the GPU and had dual battery support!

Very Good Msi Computer
Pros: Speed, memory, display...Everything
Cons: The Key board on the top left hand side kinda clicks when you use some keys. I think this is because of the easily change ability of parts. The power adapter is kinda bulky but again is necessary because the power usage of the laptop.
Other Thoughts: If you want a sick computer then get this one!
