MSI Laptop GT660R-004US Intel Core i7 1st Gen 740QM (1.73 GHz) 6 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M 16.0

Pros: - INCREDIBLE sound
- Fast Processor (4 physical , 8 logical cores due to Hyper Threading)
- Graphics card is great, Plays WoW, Rift, Starcraft 2 all on ultra with no framerate issues.
- More than enough Ram
- 1TB of Raid-0
- 1 touch overclocking
- Fan is quiet even on turbo mode
- Under $1200

Seriously a great buy. Could not believe I found a Laptop this good for under $1200.

Cons: - 720p Resolution only, But its not really that big of a deal, as the difference between 1080 and 720 on a 16inch screen is negligible.

-Bloatware. Again though not really too big of a deal. I thought about just formatting it when I got it and doing a fresh install, but after disabling / deleting the Bloat it runs just fine.

- Webcam did not work out of the box. Had to uninstall the driver and reinstall it from the included DVD and it worked fine though.

Other Thoughts: if your looking for a powerful laptop on a budget, this is your Machine.
