Pros: good speed, processor, solid display
Cons: Purchased 17 months ago.
13 months in; hinging broke. glued brass supports on to support the flimsy and broken plastic around the hinge assembly.
15months in. the M.2 drive failed; fortunately fails to a read-only mode. Replaced it.
17 months in, the power adapter connection is intermittent. opened 7 examined. looks like a failed solder joint.
Overall Review: I'm admittedly tough on laptops in general due to high use and lots of movement. Haven't dropped this one or knocked it around. Can not recommend MSI.
Overall Review: Really happy with the cpu, anyone else find that it gets really hot when it's plugged in? In the area where the adaptor is plugged in.
Pros: Speed, weight, appearance, everything runs as it should and you get what you pay for in terms of the specs
Cons: Speakers are absolutely garbage compared to my old laptop (GE70), which I had purchased in 2014.
Overall Review: As with anything, hard to say until 2 years down the road... but I've never been wronged by MSI.
