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.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master HAF 912 - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case
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.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS M4N68T-M V2 AM3 NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
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).READ FULL REVIEW
