3 out of 5 eggsNot quite what I expected

Pros: This has been a decent laptop for me. I don't game much on it but do a lot of design work and it handles that just fine. Love the keyboard and the screen is crisp and vibrant.

Cons: Haven't had it a year yet and one of the cooling fans is out. Having a really hard time finding a replacement so I don't use the laptop very much since it will get very hot. I'd rather not have anything melt.

The touchpad is pretty annoying but you get used to it.

3 out of 5 eggsGood machine when it works.

Pros: Very capable gaming laptop.

Cons: Gets very hot under any load.
Warranty service through MSI is incredibly slow.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard shorted out after exactly one year. RMA service 3-7 WEEKS! Hard to find parts for local repair.

5 out of 5 eggsMSi GS60 Ghost-003

Pros: Best laptop I've ever purchased. Sleek and compact. Very light weight, easy for travel. Super fast and responsive. Great for gaming on the go. The steelseries keyboard is very nice, didn't expect to like it that much. Lighting effects are great for any gamer. Great show piece.

Cons: None.

3 out of 5 eggsBlack Screen and Harddrive lag

Pros: 1. Runs most games with ease and on max settings.
2. Lightweight
3. Very smooth when on SSD and Games have no tearing or lag.
4. Lots of options to change back lit keyboard.

Cons: 1. I have had issues where the screen would go black when maximizing or full screening. A simple cycle of power would bring back the screen for a few seconds (unless screen is no longer maximized or fullscreen) then would go black again. (If hdmi port is plugged in screen would not go black if added as an extra screen
2. When running games on the D: (The standard harddrive NOT the solid state.) The game would get a 3-4 second delay every so often.
3. Laptop runs a bit hot due to being small. I purchased a stand with a few fans in it and solved problem of it running hot.

Other Thoughts: If you can keep the hdmi plugged in and keep your games on the SSD it's a great Laptop and very reliable.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Laptop

Pros: The laptop is light and easily portable. It runs most games without any issues on the highest settings. Runs very fast and has plenty of storage. It also has an open hdd drive bay. keyboard lighting is great and responsive. Battery life is decent for everyday things.

Cons: Touchpad has some issues but after driver update it was fine. Also support wasn't the best when contacting them, guy tried to help out but what had happened was some how the macro's had gotten stuck on. The screen also began to go black shortly after login continuously but that seems to have been fixed by disabling the power options when plugged in. Despite having two built in fans it does seem to get a little warm when playing for a short period of time, a cooling pad is a necessity for this.

Other Thoughts: Has three places of hard drives the main drive is an msata so if you want to pair it with another one or even just add in additional drive make sure that you pay attention to this. The lack of a DVD drive can be an issue but if you have an external dvd drive it would work just fine.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good overall

Pros: Small and sleek for a powerful machine. Great specs, runs everything I put on it well. Pretty much what I expected

Cons: Had to dock it an egg because of the sound. Getting this thing to work with a mic is pure hell. After going through every sound setting and 3 different head sets I can only conclude the sound card or something with Win8 is to blame. The mic is so sensitive its ridiculous, or it doesn't pick up any sounds at all. I'll spend hours to get it working how I want then next time I plug them in its not working again despite nothing being changed. Updated drivers, etc....

I've just given up on trying to get a mic to work with this laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop!

Pros: It does everything it's supposed to do.
Super quiet keyboard and fans, except under high processor loads, then the fans spin up.
Smokin' performance.

Cons: No optical drive. Not a huge problem, but still it's kind of annoying.

3 out of 5 eggsCool one

Pros: Other reviews have mentioned the Pros so i decide not to mention them again.

Cons: The only problem with my laptop is the blinking screen.

The screen will "blink" whenever I play games or even open some software that require to run with graphic cards. I am not sure if its the screen itself that has problem or the battery output is too strong that causes current thru the screen. (If that is even possible and excuse my language, English is not my first language)

Other Thoughts: I have sent the laptop back to MSI company and hope that they can fix the problem for me, I guess no one wants to use laptops with blinking screen.

5 out of 5 eggsAn amazing notebook

Pros: It's thin, It's light,
It's keyboard is super satisfying to type on, and it includes a number pad.
It's fast, and great at gaming (for a notebook).
The track pad is strange at times but it's not hard to get used too
Good Audio from the ports.
Overall, I love this notebook, it's just awesome.

Cons: The keyboard back lighting is weak.
The display edges are kind of cheesy and cheap feeling.
Heating is a little worry-some (only some of the time)
Sounds is lacking

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great notebook, it has all the options one needs without going overboard (ie, touchscreens, 3K screen, to much bling)

The aluminum dents easy, but that's more my fault. (Drop my phone on it)
