After 4 months of ownership

MSI - 17.3" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4700HQ (2.40GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M - 16 GB DDR3 - 750GB HDD 128 GB SSD - Windows 8 - Gaming Laptop (GS70 2OD-001US )

Pros: Nice Machine. Great specs for price. No buyers remorse.

Cons: Track pad is still bad. Sleep problems. I close the lid (or sleep from menu), put it in the laptop bag, Stupid hot when I take it out half hour later. Happens approx. 25% of the time Optimus technology doesn't mesh with PoE (Still shows HD4000), but every other game I have tested it works fine. Hot. Hot. Hot Like I mean when it's cold my girlfriend gets a heated blanket. I just cuddle up to the laptop and the power brick. Can get uncomfortably hot when gaming. Power connector on the mouse side. Like really? It also blocks the exhaust port with the cylinder on the cord.

Pros: Fast, Light, & Thin Nice Screen Very fast shipping Great viewing angles Lotsa Ports Battery life considering the specs

Cons: Trackpad - even with the up to date drivers, the gesture activation area is too big and multi touch scroll doesn't work. The gesture area isn't a deal breaker, just takes some getting used to, the no scrolling is terrible.

Overall Review: Fantastic, no buyers remorse. Fix the trackpad and you have 5 stars. No trouble thus far with the video card per application selector. Lot's of updates to do when you get the machine. I'd advise at least video card and trackpad drivers.

Pros: Easy to set-up. Fast printing. Easy to service. Durable. What more could I ask for?

Cons: Some speckling after a year. Dull colours if you don't set it up right.

Overall Review: Would be nice if I didn't need the control centre on my PC.

Best phone on the market

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Titanium Silver 3G Unlocked GSM Android Smart Phone w/ Android 4.0 / 5 MP Camera / 16GB Internal Memory / NFC (GT-i9250)
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Titanium Silver 3G Unlocked GSM Android Smart Phone w/ Android 4.0 / 5 MP Camera / 16GB Internal Memory / NFC (GT-i9250)

Pros: Easily the best phone on the market. Camera is amazingly quick. Takes great pictures once you get used to it. Takes 1080 videos. Takes pictures while recording video! Updates are fast, especially if your not adverse to flashing rather then wait for OTA. Screen is spectacular. Stand-by battery life is close to 2 days, screen on time around 8 hours. Smooth and snappy. Especially if you update to 4.03 or load a custom rom / kernel. Lotsa after market support, AOKP is amazing. LED! Fast modem, even just HSPA Plays every video never had a stutter or lag playing games or in the home screens. Only time it's been an issue is when bringing up the 7 home screen previews. (holding the home button)

Cons: The edge of the screen should fit into the casing a bit better. The speaker volume could be higher. Not very good for speaker phone, navigation, no headphone music, etc.

Overall Review: It appears that many of the phones bought through newegg have firmware for another region, I highly advise downloading and flashing the latest stock google image (or custom rom / kernel) No Micro SD is not a deal breaker, cloud storage, streaming music and movies Mega pixel count only determines the size of the photo, factors like sensor quality have a much greater influence on the quality of the picture. Google Wallet can be loaded via APK.
