MSI GT Series GT683DX-840US Notebook Intel Core i7 2670QM (2.20GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Runs games great even with basic AA (45fps w AA and medium/high settings in Meridian during prime time)
- Great stats and solid performance
- Love that you can run fans full speed whenever you please and the fans seem to scale pretty well automatically
- Great shipping from Newegg as always

Cons: - Keyboard is not sturdy at all and you can feel it. My comma key was broken upon shipping and the P key is a little sketchy already.
- Turbo button didn't appear to have much performance effect on Rift
- Gets pretty hot (which is expected), do NOT rest it on your lap (unless you want to burn your buys)
- The area under the screen (where the Turbo, Fan, Wireless On/Off, etc..) scratches easily

Other Thoughts: Very happy with the purchase as I travel weekly for work and need something to do in remote locations. The Pros faaaaaarrrr outweigh the cons (the only one that matters is the cheapness of the keyboard). It is a solid performing laptop that I would purchase again if given the choice to buy or get another similarly priced model on.

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2BAA 2.5

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Boot time is noticeably faster than normal for Windows7 64-bit.
- Would be more useful if using intensive programs or if you have significant programs loading on startup.

Cons: - Performance increase in boot was noticeable, but in other applications the increase was not as apparent.
- Games didn't load much faster than previously on my system (as an example, in BF3 loading in before most people off of a 7200RPM HDD), it's a little faster, but not spectacular.

Other Thoughts: - O/S and game loaded directly onto the SSD
- Z68 board, but not using caching since OS is on the SSD
- O/S & programs were all on a non-RAID 1TB 7200RPM HDD previously
- I keep my O/S clean on its installs and programs on start up so the difference wasn't as noticeable once I was past the Windows loading screen

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: With EUFI BIOS and the SSD, the start up to Windows is pretty quick. However, it's nothing spectacular coming from a 7200RPM 1TB HDD since I always kept my programs on start up to a minimum.

To be honest, for someone like me it wasn't quite worth the money as my primary uses are internet, movies and gaming. Games are saved on the SSD and have no noticeable loading difference in games or their loading times.

Cons: To be honest, for someone like me it wasn't quite worth the money as my primary uses are internet, movies and gaming. Games are saved on the SSD and have no noticeable loading difference in games or their loading times over my Western Digital 1TB 7200RPM HDD.

I could see it being more useful for someone who has quite a bit of "crud" (for lack of a better word) starting up with their PC (fixable through msconfig) or running intensive programs like video editing/animation/3D rendering/CAD.

Other Thoughts: i5 2500k
