4 out of 5 eggsKiller Laptop

Pros: This thing is packed with specs that would make even a desktop gamer drool. The RAID 0 seems to make a difference. Windows rates this thing at 7.5, which is impressive. (I hear driver updates can change this rating for the better or for the worse.)

This thing can play Skyrim and Crysis 2 without a hiccup. Metro 2033 has some issues, as does Civilization 5, and The Witcher 2 is only playable once you bump down the resolution and turn off anti-aliasing. This is surprising to me, but a reminder that this is a loptop, and I can't expect the world from it.

The best thing about the laptop is the keyboard. After using a HP for so long the layout made me want to cry, it was just so perfectly laid out. Not to mention, there's a "breathing" effect that is just awesome. The LEDs in the keyboard are completely customizable and can even display multiple colors at once.

Also, the screen is matted and non-reflective. This is a feature I wish more computer manufactures would realize is a plus

Cons: I have to say my first impression was not all that great. The build quality is on the low end. It creaked a bit when I picked it up from one end, sounding like it might snap in half under the strain of it's own weight.

The speakers are not as good as I was expecting them to be --still better than that Beats Audio bullcrap that HP is trying to sell, but I've heard better sound from cheaper laptops.

Also, it did BSOD when I was using it, which is never a good sign. Hopefully it's just a driver issue.

Other Thoughts: I have to confess that I do not own this laptop. A friend of mine brought this 'lil guy over when he heard that I was going to buy one.

After playing with this for a few hours, I decided to wait for Asus to update their G series of gaming laptops. Thir laptops are just... well... sexy, and if I'm spending 2k on a laptop, it better turn some heads. The MSI GT783 will not.

Early 2012 might not be the best time to buy a gaming laptop anyway. Ivy Bridge is due out later this year, and Nvidia is already releasing their 600 series. I can see this thing going obsolete pretty soon.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is not so much a review as a hint/guide This is the exact same machine as the 625. just doesn't have a useless 128gb ssd and has 4 G of memory less. If you had NOT of mentioned that you replaced the RAM & ssd YOU MIGHT HAVE GOT SOME HELP THAT ACTION alone voids your warrentee. I have the asus 743d- 73 it's a great note book as far as note books go but this MSI is a lttle better. True burner BD/ 580 vs 560 and te audio plugs
Down side is the area near the power button. if you repair laptops u know what I mean The driver problem u speak of if Gforce.com can't auto recognize as laptop mobility 580 gtx is fix able by doing a factory reinstall provided you took the precaustion of keeping that partition. then Gforce .cm can mostlikely fix your prolem I am buying thids in 10 days however am debating if i am going to get it from ewegg or Pnoteboooks because they can swap out the cpu for much less$ than buying the cpu and DIY wish u luck
