MSI GE Series GE60 0ND-257US Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 3630QM (2.40 GHz) 8 GB Memory 750 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M 2 GB 15.6
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I usually have a Macbook Pro laptop and a gaming desktop. I decided I wanted a gaming laptop instead for this upgrade. This hardware is nearly on par with Apple's construction - especially the keyboard (if you can do without a backlit keyboard). The speakers are surprisingly good for a laptop.

Obviously the price for the specs is fantastic.

Cons: First windows update froze at 15%, overnight. Hard reboot caused a blue screen.

WiFi card only stays connected for about 2 hours no matter what router it's connected to (tried at the airport, some coffee shops, my house and my friends house, always drops).

There are no webcam drivers installed. The MSI website has no drivers to download, it says the drivers come with Windows 8.

All these things would only be 1 egg off in my mind, but the real issue is MSI's support. For laptops you have to jump through a bunch of hoops before you can even make a request, but the hoop where I have to enter the serial number doesn't work. Calling in just lets you wait on the phone, no answer.

Other Thoughts: Awesome hardware but buggy software/drivers and no support.

Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Beautiful, functional case.

Cons: The cooler master logo looks like engineer art. Cooler Master, hire a graphic designer so we don't have to pull the sticker off of all your products.

ASUS M4N68T-M V2 AM3 NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Doesn't meet PCI-E 2.0 spec. Doesn't provide enough power to the video card to power a Radeon 6850 (this card works in other machines and my old card, a 8800 GT, works fine in this board).
