MSI 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - The specs are impressive for a laptop and very comparable to a conventional tower.
- Excellent gaming performance. Can max out Fallout 4, Witcher 3 and similar games. Confident it will do so for a few years @ 1080p.
- This 17.3'' version has good cooling even under load. It CAN get hot but no dangerously so.
- Priced reasonably considering the form factor (getting an i7 + GTX 1060 & etc on a tower can get close to the same price).
- Sleek and solid build quality, not as bulky as other gaming laptops.
- GREAT keyboard; the best one I've seen on a laptop so far.
- The screen is very crisp and clear. Viewing angles are wide and color representation is on point.
- Lots of connectivity options all around, including a DVD drive which is getting rare on laptops these days.

Cons: - Lot of MSI "bloatware" pre-installed. I know less tech savvy users might have needs for some of these programs, but I don't like booting up to 20+ programs running in the system tray. Ended up removing 95% of them.
- Windows 10 has stuttering problems that cannot be permanently fixed because of Cortana. It occurs every once in a while on Start Menu and other Windows related screens.
- Not a major con but while the black aluminum finish is nice, it does leave behind some hand marks and prints.

Other Thoughts: - Some games are better suited for AMD GPUs (ie: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, DOOM) and therefore cannot be maxed out on this GTX 1060. Fortunately most games have an edge using NVIDIA. This card basically trades blows with the RX 480.
- Information: It's not specified but Windows 10 is installed on the SSD, not the HDD. That's a good thing, it just wasn't stated anywhere.
- While it's nowhere near as portable as an Ultrabook, I was surprises by how "light" it was. I would definitely encourage people to buy this one over the 15.6" version (GE62VR same price) if only for the better cooling and the extra 128GB of SSD.
