MSI CX61 0NF-257US Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 645M 15.6

Pros: - The NVIDIA GeForce GT 645M graphics card is superb for gaming.
- The value of the hardware you get out of this laptop for the price is disgustingly awesome.

Cons: - This laptop has a tendency to try to optimize itself during the time of boot, especially after windows updates. This is a real pain because you can spend 10 or more minutes trying to get to your desktop if you are a regular, non-tech savvy end user. It seems to be a never ending freeze that occurs when you start this laptop. It will eventually get to the desktop. This is partly due to the new poor implementation of the EFI replacement over BIOS.

- You can't replace the hard drive easily because now you have to deal with EFI (the BIOS is now a partition on the hard drive and not stored in firmware on the motherboard).

Other Thoughts: I bought this computer for video gaming while traveling. This has been a great investment. The GPU on this puppy is really powerful and it runs League of Legends, Runes of Magic, and Path of Exile very, very smoothly for me. I experience at least 30 FPS at the worst in big cities on Runes of Magic (which is really, really good), with an average of 60 FPS anywhere else. If you are looking for a low dollar gaming rig, then look no further, so long as you can put up with an insanely long boot time (if you dont know how to fix it, I have tried to fix it and gave up).

I have my Masters in Computer Science and I have been tinkering with computers for 15 years, so when you read my review know that it is the opinion of an expert.
