MSI GP Series - 17.3" - Intel Core i5 4th Gen 4210H (2.90GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce 940M - 8 GB DDR3L - 1TB HDD - Windows 8.1 64-bit - Gaming Laptop (GP70 Leopard-490 )

Pros: Nvidia 940 GPU is cool and efficient. Never see over 60c and idles below 40c. Runs ultra graphics 1920x1080 @ 30fps. Runs ultra graphics 1366x768 @ 60fps. MAX PAYNE 3. Hard Drive Disk is impressively fast, for a standard HDD. 7200RPM and runs very good. Ready for M-SATA SSD. I easily added an SSD which makes this laptop much faster. SCREEN - NICEST SCREEN I have seen on a laptop in this price range. HIGHLY impressive. Screen seems to be ultra-high quality. You will love it. It is my favorite aspect of this laptop. CPU- Very powerful. Remains between 45-65c. RAM- EH, okay. Cant wait to upgrade to 2400 mhz RAM. Not bad though, not bad. For this price point i'm sold by the architecture of the laptop. I can easily change or add RAM. FANS - The fans are usually idling low, and the temps stay below 60c all around..MAX FAN button rocks! It drops the temps during games up to 10c. I normally see 50c during games with max fans on. CHASSIS- For the price point, it is impressive. I like it a lot. The plastic is high quality. SPEAKERS- Loud, and very crispy clear. I love them. CHARGER- Charges very quickly. Usually about 1 hr. KEYBOARD- Very accurate, I rarely miss keys. Has a nice click to the buttons. WIFI- Very nice, very fast. I tested over 100mbps wireless and it is rated for over 400mbps. Good signal strength. OVERALL APPEARANCE - High quality, crisp, clean, and exciting.

Cons: WEBCAM- Horrible webcam, absolutely horrible. Most cell phones are miles beyond the quality of this webcam. No back-lit keys. Doesn't matter though, as the screen is bright enough to illuminate them. Battery could be larger, however provides 4 hours of power efficient time, and 1 hour 20 minutes of full power gaming.

Overall Review: Add an SSD, and upgrade the RAM. GOLDEN. This laptop is PERFECT for this price point. I paid $718 out the door.
