1 out of 5 eggsBad RAM

Pros: The computer was great when it worked.

Cons: The RAM died on me after about a month, I'm a first time buyer so I don't know really what to do. Frequent BSOD crashes if the computer gets worked to much.

Other Thoughts: Really wish it worked, I loved it when it did.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good!

Pros: GTX 570m!
INTEL i7-2670QM! (HYPERTHREADING!)
FULL 1080P LCD MONITOR!
FULL KEYBOARD!

Cons: 2 hard drives(?)
Super hot when playing games.
Slower ram.
Build is mediocre.

Other Thoughts: Heavy and a tad bulky, but hey... it's a gaming laptop.

After reformatting the computer and reinstalling the drivers/firmware, I have had no problems.

One single dead pixel towards the left center of the screen. It bothered me for awhile because of my mild OCD (just kidding), but it is HARDLY noticeable. Most people would not be able to find it unless I show them. IT IS NATURAL FOR YOUR LCD MONITOR TO HAVE 1-3 DEAD PIXELS OVERTIME.

1 out of 5 eggsFundamentally flawed computer.

Pros: Fast hard drive (for mechanical). 12 GB of RAM - great!

Cons: Processor is meh. On par with other good laptops, but meh.

Overheated like crazy - fundamentally flawed design. Not enough space for ventilation.

Below average construction - Flimsy keyboard

The ethernet port is faulty - every once in a while is doesn't detect a cord.

Newegg will not let me refund this because it is just a day or so over the "30 day limit". They have lost sight of how they became a great company.

Thanks Newegg - I'm done with you.

Other Thoughts: Customer is wrong - folks.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Specs But Poor Build

Pros: Great price based on the hardware specs. 1-touch buttons are functional and effective, as advertised.

Cons: Poor case design with very INSUFFICIENT cooling, basically necessitating a chill pad. Laptop itself radiates A LOT of heat, so actually placing it on your lap is a no-go as well. Fans are VERY loud. Overall case design just feels kind of cheap.

Other Thoughts: If you're using the thing as a portal desktop where it's going to sit on a chill pad all day, then it's fine...but personally, I found that the overall case design just felt cheap and the cooling wasn't near adequate to match the hardware specs. I returned the laptop and replaced it with an ASUS G-series of equal hardware specs.

Also, I keep my laptops in Sleep mode a lot while sleeping sometimes, and the MSI case design has a blinking orange light to show that it's charging in the front....that got kind of annoying when I was trying to sleep.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Performance, Cheap Feel

Pros: - Runs games great even with basic AA (45fps w AA and medium/high settings in Meridian during prime time)
- Great stats and solid performance
- Love that you can run fans full speed whenever you please and the fans seem to scale pretty well automatically
- Great shipping from Newegg as always

Cons: - Keyboard is not sturdy at all and you can feel it. My comma key was broken upon shipping and the P key is a little sketchy already.
- Turbo button didn't appear to have much performance effect on Rift
- Gets pretty hot (which is expected), do NOT rest it on your lap (unless you want to burn your buys)
- The area under the screen (where the Turbo, Fan, Wireless On/Off, etc..) scratches easily

Other Thoughts: Very happy with the purchase as I travel weekly for work and need something to do in remote locations. The Pros faaaaaarrrr outweigh the cons (the only one that matters is the cheapness of the keyboard). It is a solid performing laptop that I would purchase again if given the choice to buy or get another similarly priced model on.

4 out of 5 eggsamazing

Pros: *Amazing performance
*Chews through Skyrim on Ultra with over 20 mods including the HD textures and realistic water.
*Photoshop etc. is quick and responsive.
*Not too heavy
*Does everything I expected and more.

Cons: *Battery life is horrible when gaming but that is to be expected.
*Keyboard would be great except for the upper left corner has a little give to it and the first few number keys are making a pretty loud clicking sound.
*Battery is literally a brick and gets pretty hot.
*Hard disk is only 7200 spin.
*When the fan spins up it sounds like your taking off from the runway.
*Headphones are a must if your gaming the the fan kicks in.

Other Thoughts: If not for the slow HD and the few keys are are loud this machine would of been a 5 egg all the way.
I'm not uber technical so I don't have any numbers etc. But I can probable grab some if anyone is interested. This thing is a beast and can breeze through anything I've sent at it.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good...

Pros: -Awesome Specs: GTX 570m (GREAT GRAPHICS. RUNS GAMES SUPER SMOOTHLY), Intel Core i7 2670QM, 12GB DDR3 RAM

-FULL HD 1080P

-Orange light thingies on the side

-Good Speakers

-GREAT VALUE considering the high specs on this notebook (You can't another notebook computer brand with similar specs for this low price)

Cons: FIRST OF ALL: OBNOXIOUSLY HUGE AC ADAPTER. I mean really.

-Full keyboard is nice, but it's so cramped up that I often press the wrong keys when touch typing. You will need to adjust and get used to it.

-No led backlit keyboard.

-No keyboard indicators for num/scroll/caps lock

-Bloatware... annoying.

Other Thoughts: -Keys feel weird

-Laptop casing is a bit flimsier than other notebooks (don't drop this computer)

-Slower RAM (which isn't a problem for me, because I don't open a ton a programs at once.

-Not really that heavy in my opinion

-Big laptop for a 15.6 screen

Overall I really like this notebook... but I'm going to have to give it an honest 4 stars for it's drawbacks. Hey! Nothings ever super perfect! So I recommend this computer for those who do serious gaming on a lower budget.

5 out of 5 eggsGT683dx-840us is a very solid gaming laptop

Pros: i7 quad core cpu performs at near-desktop i7 levels
gtx570m benchmarking about the same as a gtx460 desktop card
Plenty of RAM and hard drive space
matte screen (no glare, works great in bright areas and sunlight)

Cons: matte screen looks very good, but is slightly less vivid than it's glossy counterparts
MSI warranty registration process is clunky at best

Other Thoughts: The laptop performs outstanding. Rift plays at 30fps even in capital cities with many players around on ultra settings in 1920x1080. This laptop does have the horsepower (unlike some gtx560m and lower cards) imo to drive 1920x1080 in most games in high detail.

The unit uses separate CPU and GPU heat pipes with a combined very large turbine style fan. The CPU runs in the low 80C range when stressing with prime95 using the stock fan profile. If you use the turbo fan setting (very loud) it drops into the 70's. The GPU runs at about 75C during intense gaming. Temps were taken in an ambient temp of about 76F (a bit warm).

Dirt3 was thrown in complimentary from MSI with this purchase. A coupon card was included in the box; however, I had to scan it and send a picture of the coupon card (still awaiting approval for download).

Additionally, mailing in the UPC code + receipt to MSI is required to lock in 2 year warranty from date of purchase instead of date of manufacturing.
