5 out of 5 eggsMSI, 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!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Msi Computer

Pros: Speed, memory, display...Everything
I have used a lot of laptops in my day and this one is amazing. The sound is way better than all laptops i have heard expect the ones hp ones with "beats". The abilities of this computer are limitless. The graphics are unreal and can even keep up with most desktops on the market to day. The led lights are a bonus but useless. I had the battery last for 5 hours!! Usually its about 3 - 3.5 hours which is decent considering the amount of power this computer can use. The mouse touch pad is really nice. Touch pads are pretty important to me and this ones really nice with a nice clicker. If your an avid gamer or just want a computer which is speedy then this is the one you want to get.

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.
This is not a con for the computer but trying this computer through Newegg was terrible, they have a horrible verification process which takes forever.

Other Thoughts: If you want a sick computer then get this one!
