MSI 17.3

Pros: Playing games on this system (Skyrim, Star Trek Online, Dead Space 3, SWTOR) is amazing. Light weight for a gaming laptop its size (looks are deceiving). Not too over-the-top design on chassis.

*DVD/BLURAY: Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 doesn't play bluray disks. Still trying to fiddle with fixing the issue.

*HDMI: When plugging into TV (Current Year Sony 50") sound doesn't work from TV, laptop only. Also when hooked up to the TV through HDMI, the laptop doesn't recognize the TV at you can't even manually change the sound settings from laptop to TV.

*Cooler Boost 2 is kind of loud, but you aren't supposed to leave it on all the time, so use it in intermittent times (going to get a drink or bathroom break for instance).
*No dedicated volume control. I like to play games loud but understand that it's a portable rig, I want to be courteous around the people around me when I don't have headphones or they are not warranted. It would be nice to change the volume on-the-fly just in case.
*Keyboard could have been separated a bit more for my not-so-dainty hands and fingers. If you look at the keyboard close up, MSI could have separated the keys a bit more.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a awesome rig to play on the portable level. Only wish that MSI did some homework regarding what software to put into for its Bluray player/drive. I also think they should have made sure that the HDMI, well, matter of fact, everything would have been tested (not hastily) before putting their approval on a product they tout as a "DOMINATOR". They should dominate on getting things right the first time before sending it off to portable gaming Valhalla.

But remember, this is just my opinion and I would like to make sure that just reading a review isn't a solid go or no-go decision. If your local store has one on display, even the lower model one, play around with it. It will be worth your while and sense to do so.
