Other Thoughts: I received this laptop as a gift from somewhere else, sadly. D:
I recommend getting a cooling stand for this laptop, to help with cooling it, a cooling stand typically will reduce the temperatures by about 0°-5° C. I have yet to have either the gpu or cpu hit 90° C, running games on high i typically find myself at 70°-82° C
* The RAM is upgradeable, but it is highly recommended that you don't seeing as you would have to pull out the motherboard, there is a dissection guide on msi's forums though.
** This somewhere else place has this exact same model and it's cpu listed as a 4700HQ 2.4 GHz, but i received it with a 4710HQ 2.5 GHz. There may be a chance that this model from newegg will have the 47010HQ 2.5 GHz.
*** You can feel warmth at the air intake area and on part of the keyboard. It is not an uncomfortable warmth. Though if you put your hands near the exhaust you will have yourself a personal heater. Which for me is nice :D
**** I typically have the audio at about 20-25 when not plugged into speakers, Around there seems to give u the best quality.
Pros: - Aesthetics
- It sorta prints 3D sucessfully
Cons: - Shipped to us an outdated version, we used this to 3D print parts for the printer to help make it work better
- We literally have to clean the nozzle out every print or else it gets clogged up.
- Support is terrible, refused to help us, guess they dont want a return of a $2200 product
- No paneling around windows, we had to make our own
- No heating pad
Other Thoughts: I dont personally own this but our school bought one and i have access to using it.READ FULL REVIEW
