5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Computer.

This review is from: MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: This computer, amazing. its beautiful from whatever angle you look at it, has amazing features and can handle any game you throw at it without ease. Even when playing games on a table ( normal table ) , it has a cpu temperature measure and I peak ~60 C. However, on my bed without a cooler or anything, I hit around ~70 C. Backlit keyboard is beautiful, however some of the colors aren't as vibrant as they seem.

Cons: The top of the computer screen stands out, looks a bit awkward, takes a while to get used to. wish they wouldve placed the screen a bit higher than normal. All USB's will stick out about a 1/4th of an inch also, so be aware. The Trackpad is also very sensitive at default, so yoo should turn it down a few notches.
MSI also provides a driver CD, but this computer has NO OPTICAL DRIVE.

Other Thoughts: All in all, amazing computer. The cons are there, but the pros heavily outweigh it. It has nothing worth taking a egg off.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat for Gaming but Be Informed

This review is from: MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: It will play any 2013/2014 game you throw at it at 1080p with decent-to-excellent framerate

Cool keyboard backlights

Cool fast-charger for phones via USB

thin. thinner that most regular laptops, not just gaming ones

fast as a bullet

very pleasing aesthetics

better speakers than you'd expect from a laptop

screen looks good and is very bright

nice features

minimal bloatware

Cons: Weird CTRL key problem

not really meant for gaming on your lap
non-standard keyboard key arrangement (who do they think they are, getting rid of the left Win key?)

kills 120W power supplies (the stock one included)

Other Thoughts: Definitely the most convenient and low-profile gaming laptop I've ever seen.

It smashes through games like XCOM Enemy Within at 60fps, 1080p, high settings without breaking a sweat...
except that if I put it on my lap, I'm the one who has to break a sweat. I don't blame the laptop though, since its so thin, its hard to imagine having this much power in such a small chassis without the heat output.

After reading all the bad comments about the touchpad, and before I even tried to use it, I immediately updated its driver and turned palm-sensing down to the minimum setting. If you do this, the touchpad is actually much better than your average Windows laptop touchpad. Still, its no match for the Mackbook Pro touchpad. I just don't know why no Windows laptop-maker seems to be able to match its accuracy.

Also be very careful when handling this laptop with one hand from the left/right side. I've found this to be a problem with pretty much ANY LARGE LAPTOP, but it seems particularly bad with this one since its so thin. Just make sure you grip it from the front/back if you one-hand it, not the left/right side and you'll be fine. Always carry it two-handed if you’re grabbing left/right.

My only real complaint is that the CTRL key seems to randomly get stuck... even though I didn't press it :( This appears to be a defect, but I really can't afford to be without a laptop, so I guess I'll just live with it

Finally, this laptop burned out its stock 120W power supply; I bought a third-party 120W power supply and it killed that one too; I ended up having to get a third-party 180W psu and that works fine. Even the stock 120W ran dangerously hot before it died. This "Prudent Way" brand 180W psu keeps cool even during long 3-hour gaming sessions.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

This review is from: MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: > 860m and 12GB RAM*
> Triple 1080p output
> 4 USB 3.0s (Though I bought a hub anyways)
> 45° exhaust (Exhaust isn't blowing on your hand)
> Amazingly thin and light
> Killer e2200 Ethernet
> Customizable keyboard
> i7 4710HQ 2.5 GHz**
> Brushed aluminium
> 128GB SSD (Which you can add another or replace the current)

Cons: > Does run hot when under load (It's a laptop what do you expect)***
> The keyboard does have some issues with the different types of LED modes u can have
> Trackpad is bad by default (Max out all the settings and you are good to go)
> Audio is pretty bad when load (It's a laptop, what do u expect)****
>The HDD is NOT 7200 rpm, it is in fact according to speccy, 5400 rpm.

Other Thoughts: I received this laptop as a gift from somewhere else, sadly. D:

I recommend getting a cooling stand for this laptop, to help with cooling it, a cooling stand typically will reduce the temperatures by about 0°-5° C. I have yet to have either the gpu or cpu hit 90° C, running games on high i typically find myself at 70°-82° C

* The RAM is upgradeable, but it is highly recommended that you don't seeing as you would have to pull out the motherboard, there is a dissection guide on msi's forums though.

** This somewhere else place has this exact same model and it's cpu listed as a 4700HQ 2.4 GHz, but i received it with a 4710HQ 2.5 GHz. There may be a chance that this model from newegg will have the 47010HQ 2.5 GHz.

*** You can feel warmth at the air intake area and on part of the keyboard. It is not an uncomfortable warmth. Though if you put your hands near the exhaust you will have yourself a personal heater. Which for me is nice :D

**** I typically have the audio at about 20-25 when not plugged into speakers, Around there seems to give u the best quality.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT LAPTOP

This review is from: MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: This laptop is everything I wanted and more. I7 processor is great, 12 gigs of ram, SSD and dual band router capabilities makes this laptop faster than fast. Not to even mention how great the graphics are. The 860m graphics can handle any game at High and Ultra on every game and still keep a solid frame rate. My favorite aspect if this laptop is the design. It looks like a high performance sports car. It's thin, light and it can pack a punch. Recommend to anyone looking for a gaming laptop. Perfect combination of ultra-book and gaming pc.

Cons: None that would change my opinion. The only thing I can think of Is weird placement of the charger port. But if that changes your mind you ate crazy.

2 out of 5 eggsOK laptop, low quality construction

This review is from: MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: The laptop seems to play most games at fairly high settings without too many hiccups. It isn't too loud and the screen is great.

Cons: Poor build quality. The keyboard is poor quality (where I usually hit the space bar on the lower right hand side doesn't register as a keystroke) and the touchpad started to function poorly (the left click function isn't smooth and the pad wobbles slightly) right after the Newegg return policy has ended. RMA shipping is apparently my responsibility (really?) and it'll take them up to a month(!) after receiving it to repair it.

Other Thoughts: I regret buying this laptop and wish I had spent my money on a different brand.

5 out of 5 eggsLightweight and powerful

This review is from: MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: You won't find a better combo of performance and portability in this price range, maybe in any price range. While plugged in, this little lightweight machine can outperform my gaming PC (admittedly, a bit aged). Unplug it and it take it anywhere and you can still play games, but you'll probably want to turn the video settings down a notch. The frame of the laptop feels solid. I love the keyboard and the trackpad, and I generally hate laptop keyboards and trackpads. Still, you'll want to use a mouse while gaming, of course. The colorful lights on the keyboard are a bit of a novelty, but is the first thing that wows friends. The monitor is good and large enough that I no longer use my 24" Dell UltraSharp and decided to sell it. This thing cold boots faster than most computers wake from sleep. Bloatware was minimal.

Cons: The battery doesn't last as long as I had hoped, even when the dedicated card is off. Still, it's more than adequate considering how powerful it is. There is an MSI application included that is supposed to prolong battery life, but it takes a very long time to run and failed for me on the time I tried it. This thing also runs very hot while gaming, so make sure you have it sitting on a solid surface for adequate airflow. When I'm not gaming, it is as cool as a cucumber.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a lightweight laptop with a newest generation mid-performance video card, capable CPU, lots of RAM, and SSD. Also, since it's not really clear, the backlighting on the keyboard has only a few different settings (but lots of colors). You can't custom light individual keys.

1 out of 5 eggsNVIDIA CARD DOA

This review is from: MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: 17" Display and super lightweight.

Cons: I bought this laptop because I was going overseas and I needed some strong computing power for 3D modeling. Unfortunately, the Nvidia card arrived DOA. Anytime I run the 3D modeling software I get this error, "NVIDIA Window Kernel Mode driver stopped responding and has recovered" and the programs crash. Now, I'm overseas with this laptop. I'm so disappointed with the laptop and have not found a solution.

Other Thoughts: MSI needs to improve their quality control / inspection team.
