This review is from: MSI GS Series GS60 Ghost Pro-052 Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40 GHz) 12 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 128 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 3GB GDDR5 15.6" Windows 8.1 64-Bit
Pros: This is by far the best gaming laptop i've had so far. the weight, 1080 resolution, rgb keyboard and thin profile are all great aspects of this laptop.
the boot time will be under 4 seconds and i love the fact that it doesn't have that much bloatware already installed.
i've been playing Diablo 3 RoS on this so far it the frame rate looks pretty stable. currently investigating if there is major frame drop when playing with huge mobs of enemies.
my next experiment will be video rendering to see if it is anywhere near my 4770k desktop.
Cons: here are the 3 things i don't like about this laptop:
- the lid easily has fingerprints on it unless you constantly clean it.
- there is no battery managing software that stops the laptop from charging the battery to 100%. this can cause battery longevity issues especially since you can't swap out the battery.
- the mouse track pad isn't as sensitive/accurate as i would like but that is a minor gripe. for gaming, i'll use a plug-in mouse and that's fine.
Other Thoughts: all gaming laptops get hot so that's not a valid gripe since i also bought a cooling fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: i give this 5 eggs because it came with my purchase of the MSI Ghost gaming laptop.
it has the ability to charge my iphone about 3-4 times.
the charging time varies between USB power and AC outlet power.
Cons: it can't charge a blackberry, but i blame blackberry for that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal X3 - Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 200 mm Blue LED Fan
Pros: The fan works as advertised and looks pretty cool. build quality is good enough and can handle the weight of most laptops. i like how the design and how the fan is raised so that there is a gap at the bottom to pull in air. this allows me to use this on my bed without having to worry about ventilation.
there's a convenient USB passthrough as well since this is being powered by a USB port.
Cons: fan is a little loud/audible when on high setting. that's pretty much about it.READ FULL REVIEW
