MSI 15.6

Pros: Decent battery life, thin, lightweight, nice keyboard, nice screen. Performance has been great. I'm a Software Engineer and I use this laptop as my personal home computer for gaming and personal projects. I've used it for the last 2 months and it has been great. I love the portability, the look, and the fact that I didn't have to sacrifice much in terms of performance when I switched to this laptop from a nice desktop.

Cons: It would be nice if the battery life was better while gaming, but out of an ultra thin laptop/desktop replacement you can only ask for so much. For the tasks I usually need to accomplish while away from home (non-gaming related tasks) it works perfectly fine.

Other Thoughts: One thing I have noticed, for anyone who plays video games, sometimes the Nvidia optimus doesn't work properly. I think it is a problem with optimus or certain games, not the laptop. With battlefield 4 for example, it would often crash shortly after entering a game, because as the game launched it wasn't detecting and switching to the discrete graphics like it's supposed to. I was able to solve this problem completely by going to Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Glabal Settings (tab) and set the preferred graphics processor to High-performance Nvidia processor.
