4 out of 5 eggsGreat for me

Pros: Fan rpm increases when needed or I can use button when I am gaming to manually do so. Also love having windows 7 on it when I got it versus windows 8. Cpu as an I5 is not better than my I7 but adequate to tasks and video cards also seem able to handle most mid level type games set to normal settings - like the keyboard and 17 inch screen. Also like HDMI connection to connect to my TV - Nice

Cons: one time tv connection did not automatically show my internet browsing to the tv as I thought it would. Something with my output may have been adjusted - video.

Other Thoughts: A decent buy I thought for an entry level or almost mid level laptop business/gaming as long as you are not playing Crysis type games at high levels - not that I have tried even.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI GP70

Pros: NVidia dedicated Video card, 8GB RAM, 17.3" screen, price under $1k, Minimal Bloatware and WINDOWS 7!!!!

Cons: None atm.

Other Thoughts: This is a very nice gaming laptop. with the nvidia card running for >6 hrs at a time, it doesn't run hot to the touch at all, no hiccups playing online games like STWOR and EQ. The bootup time is quite fast. One thing I noticed that I really like is when the battery is full and it is plugged into an outlet, it reads "plugged in, not charging." how cool is that? That will save on battery life if you fall asleep with it plugged in, like i do everyday. That was a very nice bonus to me.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Budget Gaming Notebook

Pros: - bang for the buck
- fast. good specs.
- sturdy
- good for gaming (BF4 40-60 FPS @ medium)
- same with video editing
- Windows 7!!! :)

- speakers are good. loud and clear.
- very good chiclet keyboard by Steelseries

Cons: - will accumulate fingerprints (use moist paper towel to remove)
- touch-pad(ribbed). maybe its just me because i am more used to smooth touchpads. but who cares, if you are a gamer like me just get a mouse :)

1 out of 5 eggsAn absolutely-awful display, despite otherwise-decent hardware: Stop doing this, manufacturers.

Pros: Decent for moderate gaming due to its NVIDIA GT 740M GPU, but you can get that in a lot of laptops that don't drop the ball on the display like this one does.

Cons: The display MSI decided to use in this laptop is a 17.3" 1600x900. 1600x900 resolution in a display this size makes things onscreen rather large, and furthermore almost all display panels produced for laptops that are 17.3" with 1600x900-pixel resolution -- this one included -- are low-grade LCDs with very poor image quality due to the grayish blacks and overall washed-out look brought on by poor contrast, as well as severely-limited viewing angles.

You're going to find many other laptops this size without this issue, that are using displays 17.3" with 1920x1080 resolution. Not only is this resolution more fitting to such a large display, allowing you to fit a decent amount onscreen for the size, 17.3" displays with 1920x1080 resolution also tend to be displays that do well in terms of contrast and other picture quality aspects.

By buying the MSI GP70, you're not only disadvantaging yourself by saddling your user experience with such a poor display, in the bigger picture you're supporting manufacturers' use of displays like this: something that needs to stop. Send the right message, while at the same time doing yourself a favor to begin with, by buying something else.

Other Thoughts: What I strongly urge you to do is consider some alternative models offered right here on Newegg, which offer significantly better displays as well as more powerful GPUs (the graphics processing unit). As of writing, these are some of what's available:
- Aspire V3-772G-6468:
- IdeaPad Z710:
- IdeaPad Z710:

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Those machines came with Windows 8 and this is the main reason why the machine is more expensive.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI - A truly great notebook!

Pros: Love this notebook! I needed a fast, dependable computer that would download genealogical images of censuses, etc. and resolve their resolution quickly and clearly. I use this MSI notebook to share those images with a flat-screen TV when teaching a Genealogy class and it has worked it's little heart out with no problems. The student's and I are amazed at the quality and features of this outstanding notebook. The touch-pad is "ribbed" and is not shiny so it doesn't show fingerprints. The notebook itself is very handsome. Plus - the "box" it came in is black with a picture of a red dragon on it, the box is somewhat padded and carries the cord in a special compartment within it, and the box has a handle! I use it in transporting the notebook to and from class and it makes an awesome "briefcase"!

Cons: No cons. It's a great notebook.
