Pleased. Thoroughly. 11/21/2012
I use it for work & for play. They keyboard is absolutely wonderful. It's responsiveness is on par with my G510 keyboard. The back lighting is great, color choice is by far a favorite point for me. Power consumption is very low. Dual (hd/ss)d bays! :D External SATA !!!AND!!! USB 3!!! Not to mention the wifi & eth. I run EVERYTHING on "ultra settings now!"
All in all the stats/details speak for themselves.
Strict warranty sticker on the machine won't allow me to update without voiding manufacturers warranty. My Y key is a bit poorly attached, or molded. Still works but can be annoying. HDD.
Everything I read from LKGG18 is on the money. I love my new machine. It's been the most worthwhile and enjoyable $1500 I've ever spent on a computer. I'm gladder still that I was NOT forced to Windows 8, without a touch screen.
We've seen a large difference in our electricity bill since buying this, and I'm on it more then I ever was my desktop to boot.
What more can I say, USB 3 & Esata!!! The esata is kind of a waste with usb 3, but hey it means I can connect with more devices then without.
Minus the costs, I'd happily convert all the computers in our house to the gt70's. MSI you delivered, and you delivered well.
Don't get me wrong on the HDD, it seems to be quality hardware, it's still just an HDD though, this bottle necks the machine hard. Load times between my wifes machine and mine are similar, BUT SSD, REALLY, REALLY, makes a difference. Her machine loads to windows desktop in around 15 to 20 seconds. If you can afford it, SSD makes a major difference.
I do believe I have to agree with LKGG18 again regarding an extended warranty purchase, I cannot wait to utilize the built in raid controller with ssd... I drool in anticipation.
