This review is from: MSI GE Series GE40 2OC-008US Notebook Intel Core i7 4702MQ (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB HDD 14.0"
Pros: The best bang for your gaming dollor in a 14" form factor. Easy to upgrade. Haswell is the King.
Cons: Almost NEEDS a notebook cooling pad to run at full CPU/GPU speed ( I purchased this one - Logisys Computer 140mm fan slim laptop cooling pad Model NP19 from NE) Driver are new and a little buggy. Win8! I would have liked an option for a BluRay drive rather than the DV but that is upgradeable.
Other Thoughts: This laptop is a replacement for my Desktop so I wanted the best I could get in a 14' unit. I just installed a Samsung 830 256GB SSD, I first used the restore utility that MSI supplies to backup Win8 to a thumb drive (needs 5GB free), worked flawlessly. I have ordered another 8GB ram (only one stick installed) and plan on buying a Slim-BluRay drive to replace the DVD. I thought about upgrading to Win7 but the bios would need to be flashed and read people are having problems with Win7 and then can’t get back to Win8.
