MSI GS70 2OD-002US Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB 17.3" Windows 8
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB
  • Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz)
  • 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD
  • 17.3" 1920 x 1080

Pros:

-Sexy and sleek gaming rig that can dual as a professional work machine.

-Steelseries keyboard is excellent. Comfortable and the LED lighting is a nice touch.

-Fast boot times. As others have said, in the 5-7 second range

-Impressive performance with gaming and work.

Cons:

-The touchpad has a steep learning curve, but it was okay once I got a handle on things. That is, until it stopped working altogether. It works on the log in screen for windows, but once my password is entered, everything disappears. I tried searching for a driver update, but was unable to find anything on MSI's website. Slightly disappointing, as this is my primary work machine, and it's not always convenient for me to carry a wireless mouse. Hoping this gets resolved quickly.

-As others have mentioned, the power cord can get in the way of the cooling vent which gets very warm. I have to bend the cable in a way that it doesn't restrict airflow, but it's not really a problem. Just wish I didn't have to worry about it.

-The plastic tab that covers my webcam is slightly crooked, and I can't seem to slide it straight. Every time I look up and see light reflecting off of it, I just see this crooked piece of plastic. It's a shame because everything else about this machine is gorgeous.

Other Thoughts:

All in all, you won't be disappointed. This machine doesn't compromise on much, and its short comings are far outweighed by everything else. Just buy it!
