4 out of 5 eggsFeels cheap but performs like expensive

Pros: Got it for 600 on neweggflash. Top line 3rd gen mobile processor is pretty impressive. I did a lot of research but I was still very surprised by just how good the older GT645 video card was. As mentioned in other reviews it handles mid-high req games pretty well. When video card is crunching the fans to get pretty lively but that fine because the machine stays pretty cool even under heavy workloads. Comes with an MSI supercharger usb port/software and also a useful battery calibration software that will extend battery life.

Cons: The construction around the display and keyboard does feel cheap. the plastic cover on the monitor feels like it could chip or break easily. The same material is also used around the keyboard and i could see it cracking easily if you dropped the machine. If you are a sensible user though you wont have any problems. The lower chassis feels pretty sturdy.
My keyboard kinda dips when i press on the middle keys, not a major issue but does not inspire confidence. The CD rom cover also wobbles considerably in its slot, hopefully long term wont be an issue.
My final complaint is that in the description there was no indication as to the hard drive speed, its 5400 although my machine boots in under 10 seconds. I would have still gotten it with a 5400rpm HD but it would have been good to know beforehand.

Other Thoughts: Overall id say if you can get it for 600ish this is an amazing deal price/performance wise. I jumped the gun and bought this without waiting for black friday deals because i dont think I could have gotten a much better deal (and i wanted a beefy machine soon).

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -I got this computer at $600 when it was on sale
- Graphics are great so far, can max out League of Legends and CS: GO
- Good looking frame

Cons: - The fans are always loud when running the graphics card.
- Updating to Windows 8.1 took me several hours (also Windows 8.1 < Windows 7)
- The keyboard seems cramped (see pictures)
- Pretty heavy/thick

Other Thoughts: This is an older model graphics card, but it can run many moderately intensive games on max (LoL and CS:GO). If this model weren't on sale for $600 I would think twice about buying it, but it was a great deal for me. The specs are good nonetheless.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Laptop

Pros: I haven't found any negatives to report. If you look at the specs on this machine, you know it has everything. The memory is upgradeable to 16GB, but I don't see a need for that. The operating system is upgradeable to Windows 8.1 for free. I have done that. The tech support is excellent.

Cons: I would have preferred Windows 7. I am living with Windows 8.1. If you look for this specific model on the MSI website, it isn't there. This is listed under CX61 ONF. The 686MX has to do with the specific system configuration and you won't find out what that means on the MSI website.

Other Thoughts: I would love to know more about how the disk is partitioned and what each partition contains and if there are any partitions that can be removed.
If you want to make a disk image, which you should do, you will need new software because Windows 8 has new requirements. I used Acronis TrueImage 2014 and it worked perfectly.
I can only speak to the computer's suitability for my needs which are basic business - it's great. I'm not a gamer so I can't shed any insight on it as a game machine.
People are asking questions about this machine on line. Almost every question I've seen is answered in the product details. The one thing that isn't in the details is that there are 2 USB 3 ports and 1 USB 2 port.
I use a wireless mouse. I can't imagine using any laptop without one. The keyboard is fine.
