Pros: Nice system, smooth, fast
Cons: Came with a dead CMOS battery
Other Thoughts: This system was supposed to be a christmas present for a relative who's not technologically savvy. Was going to be a great gift, until I opened it, got it all set up the way I wanted it, and.....system time keeps resetting every power-down. This caused errors in windows update and many other small issues. I know it's not a newegg issue, but a dead cmos battery is pretty serious which is why we lost 2 eggs here. Thankfully I was able to get around it, as the cmos battery is welded to the MOBO...just installed a program to keep the windows time updated at startup...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Strong, fast, beautiful
It's taken everything I've thrown at it so far without filching or even running hot. I set the fan speed via the MSI gaming app, and it keeps the system running cool and is quite quiet. Every so often I have to run the special feature to super cool the fans, but that's a rare occurrence. Yesterday was the toughest day for it. Ran Shadow of Mordor on it, highest graphic settings for about 7 hours, not a single issue.
Cons: Big. This card is a beast, so if you're looking to buy it....CHECK SPECS FOR SIZE. MEASURE YOUR TOWER AND CHECK SIZES. I knew I wouldn't have a problem with my Thermaltake Commander tower, but for some of you, CHECK SIZE.
Other Thoughts: This card is simply beautiful. I upgraded from an old Sapphire Raedon R7 to this glorious piece of majesty, and the difference in speed and power was noticeable right away. It is big and bulky, but, not a problem if you know what you're doing. Actually, having this card even helped me reorganize my cables in my system. And for the price (I got it in special for $20 less than normal), it is worth it.
Didn't use the rebate though, I've never had luck with the rebates.
Pros: Touch screen, built in webcam, mic, pretty fast, lots of memory, price
Cons: no optical drive, video card on the slow side (what to expect on a laptop though), battery life is a little on the short side.
Other Thoughts: Bought this laptop refurbished because I needed a portable system for school, and this one was the one my computer friends said was the best choice from what i looked at. So far it's been a great computer for working with, pretty fast, only major issues I have are the battery life and the lack of an optical drive (which is not terrible).READ FULL REVIEW
