This review is from: MSI GT Series GT70 2OC-017US Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40 GHz) 24 GB Memory Super RAID (128GB SSD*2 RAID 0+ 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M 3GB GDDR5 17.3" Win 8 Multi-language
Cons: continual maintenance and updates, unreliable, spending more time restarting than using, MSI support website not helpful/outdated.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this laptop as my first fully assembled gaming laptop from a real company as I previously used recycled bits for my previous machine. Admittedly, my tech knowledge is mediocre, however, my previous machines had fewer issues. After a short 2 weeks, I updated to windows 8.1 and now it will not boot. MSI support pdfs were inaccurate, displaying options that are not available. For the short time I could use the laptop, some of the MANY pre-installed programs would work and start and their leisure. Needless to say, I have spent as much time trying to optimize the laptop as I have using the laptop. Hopefully their phone lines will be helpful otherwise I have to conclude this product ESPECIALLY for the price is just asking for more work upon yourself. Purchase only if you are employed in the computer sciences and are more than competent.READ FULL REVIEW
