1 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Nice physical design. 8GB of ram.

Cons: So after all the shenanigans of having to reimage the device. The touch screen stopped responding after 3 days and would not get detected. At that point I decided this thing was a lemon. This has been my experience with MSIs in the past. After setting it up and everything. I handed it to my fiance and she said the touch screen stopped working. The fan is also very loud and does not sound very nice. I think the real problem here is a systemic issue with the manufacturer MSI as they do not ensure quality in their devices. I generally have to spend more time troubleshooting and RMA-ing than actually using the devices.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and get a Lenovo

3 out of 5 eggswaiting for RMA replacement...

Pros: light weight,
screen resolution

Cons: dead pixel upon booting up,
system runs hot,
noisy fan sound
poor battery life(shows less than 4 hours after complete recharging)

Other Thoughts: this is the 1st time I write a review on Newegg, as this is the 1st time I purchase an expensive computer equipment from online retailer.

Had high hope for this ultrabook, but must say I am disappointed with the MSI quailty, the screen has dead pixel that would not go away, and the system runs hot at 60+ degree C even at idle mode. The review site article tested the temperature at 20 to 30 degree C, so I am guessing maybe I got a bad system?

Wrote to the Newegg customer service online chat, and the representative sent me a RMA shipping label right away.

~Let's see if the replacement will correct the above problems(fingers crossed)

ps: to the last reviewer, the F3 recovery function does work, but you have to press it really quick upon boot up (took me about 5 tries to get it tho @@")

2 out of 5 eggsBad system Image, had to install fresh, negligible support from MSI

Pros: Sleek, form factor is quite nice. I like the chiclet keyboard but not everyone enjoys them. Screen is quite clear and has good resolution
This is the only reason it get any eggs at all.

Cons: Out of box, item was essentially unusable. I had to re-install OS from media and find drivers manually. MSI support has never been anything outstanding and this situation proved to be even less impressive than before.

Upon turning the product on, I was prompted with System Recovery where all options brought be back to the same recovery splash page. Called MSI and they instructed me that the original system image was corrupted and that I would need to RMA through them or Newegg. The 'technician' provided no solution and was even defensive when I questioned the quality assurance of their products coming out of the factory. Instead of providing me with solutions this tech was more or less unhelpful and his only response was to send it in. Did not suggest windows repair, using DartPE, fixmbr, or anything of the sort. I ended up scrubbing the SSD and doing a clean install of Windows 8.1 from USB key.

MSI website does not provide any kind of driver support page and support site has no reference what-so-ever to this device. I had to use a separate PC to grab the drivers from the optical disk, copy them to a USB key and install them manually.

Device comes with a CD enclosed with drivers, manuals etc. This is problematic because THE DEVICE HAS NO OPTICAL DRIVE! This is an egregious oversight on the part of MSI and reminds me why I do not purchase their motherboards or other components.

The manual provided states to Press F3 to go to system recovery. This does absolutely nothing. (Surprised?)

Other Thoughts: MSI is essentially worthless. Rarely have I seen them attempt to bring a troubleshooting situation to a solution and instead often blame the customer or user. I will most likely return this product.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
We can send you the recovery discs if you need it, but you will need to purchase an external optical drive to restore the OS.
But if the issue is with the internal drive then we can issue you a RMA# to send the system back.

If you have any questions, please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at usreview@msi.com.
When contacting us, please kindly include your product info, thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat consumer device

Pros: Beautiful screen, fast system, nice sound.

Cons: No pointing device makes it useless for business usage, and the stiff joint for the display leaves me worried Im going to damage it when I open the device.

Other Thoughts: Its a great device for consumption, such as browsing the web, watching videos or even playing some lightweight games. However, the lack of a pointing device (i.e. mouse) is fatal to the use of this computer for any business application.

5 out of 5 eggsThe tablet I was waiting for

Pros: A tablet you can also use for productivity; tablet and desktop mode.
Packed with excellent features: 2 USB 3.0, mini HDMI, memory card reader, Ethernet port, 8GB of RAM, Intel i5 processor.
The performance is awesome.
Battery life is also very good.
The screen has an excellent resolution and sharp colors.

Cons: Since the screen is glossy, like any other touchscreen device, reflects the background light.
