5 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop

Pros: Great graphics card, good processor, built in extra fan that you can turn on with a swipe of your finger. good solid keyboard, this laptop is everything a gamer could need, even though it isn't completely up to the highest level of graphics anymore. So far its played everything I have wanted it to, on high to max level graphics, with little to no studdering or lag.

Cons: The logo and light on the back of the monitor make it so you can't put any kind of decorative skin or cover on it.

Other Thoughts: All in all it is a great laptop, I just I was able to put my Batman laptop skin on the laptop without making it have weird glowing shape that sticks out in the middle.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Nice graphics
Decent sized hard drive
Doesn't get hot while gaming.

Cons: Like everyone else, windows 8. Metro is terrible. It kind of makes sense for a tablet, but it should be something you can disable if you're using a computer with a keyboard and mouse. Luckily there are third party applications that are under $5 that do just that.

It's also rather heavy like most gaming systems, it's not something you'll want to carry around every day.

Other Thoughts: At the time of typing this, the system has been discontinued so reading this review is pointless. But if by some magic newegg gets some more of them for the $1000 - $1100 price you should pick one up.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Very good laptop. I had a mid level gaming laptop and upgraded to this, This really flies compared to the mid level. Crisp graphics and I can play current games on ultra. It really came in handy for the steam sale, because with a new pc of course new games are a requirement. If you care about windows sub-scores, (still running windows 8)
processor (6.9)
RAM (7.0)
Graphics (6.7)
Gaming Graphics (6.7)
Primary hard disk (5.9)
Keyboard feels good and the touchpad has a very good feel to it. Definitely good for an AMD fanboy. Also, no windows button on the left side. awesome.

Cons: Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: Good for gaming and worth the price tag for me. I can always remove the con I gave this laptop by installing windows 7 as I imagine any sane person would do. I'm curious to see if they'l improve Win8 with 8.1, doubtful but a nerd can hope. I was on the fringes for a week or so about getting this, and then I took the plunge and was glad I did. If you don't get this one I'd recommend looking at some of the other G series laptops MSI has. I've always had good luck with MSI laptops.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Feels sturdy, anti glare screen, NOT a fingerprint magnet(the main thing I was looking for in a laptop other than power), and oh so powerful. Plays everything I can throw at it on high or better, but then again, I'm not really playing super high end games.

Either way, the laptop was absolutely worth every cent.

Oh, and it came with hitman!

Cons: Windows 8, but that was an easy fix :)

The right shift key is a little small, and the left set of function keys are a little scrunched, but it's nothing I can't get used to!

Other Thoughts: Worth. Every. Penny.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: For the money in a 15'' I don't think you can beat this laptop. If you want 17'' get the gx70 . Its light weight , good power management , looks sharp . automatic fans with the option of manual override .

Cons: The only real con I can honestly give it is that it wasn't obvious out of the box that you had to tell windows 8 to use the graphics card vs the apu. When we first logged in on ultra WoW said we were getting 9 fps ( however it didnt feel like it . ie no tearing or slide show effect just a little lag when you first loaded new textures etc). Once we knew to go into setting and tell it to use the grahpics card 87 fps on ultra . Also wish it would had backlit keyboard

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my wife , her desktop was about to die and this was the replacement. We are both avid Wow players and this machine lets her raid in 25 mans at ultra settings.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: beautiful display
subwoofer creates an immersive low-end sound

Cons: cpu bottleneck
single-button touchpad click
horrible webcam and mic (for some reason the reviews of the standard gx60 indicated that this would be a perk... but I was thoroughly disappointed)

Other Thoughts: I bought this device as a college laptop that had some power behind it. I was excited to finally break free from the pathetic world of integrated video cards and finally get something that would give justice to Skyrim, SC2, Borderlands 2, etc. but was disheartened to see that even Skyrim had horrible performance on High (not ultra) graphics.

*The burning smell is especially concerning to me since it occurs even when checking email, playing music, or browsing the web.
