MSI 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Everything I expected.
Plays all the games I play (ESO, Diablo, Skyrim, ect) on high with no problems.
Great Keyboard
Great screen (at least it looked better than my external 27 inch monitor)
Size and weight are amazing obviously.

Cons: Loud fan when running games (expected), my headset without active noise canceling blocks it all out.
GPU gets up to 91 degrees Celsius during heavy gaming, this makes above the keyboard and the bottom pretty hot (expected)

Other Thoughts: This blows my previous gaming laptop (Toshiba with a gtx 370M) out of the water and performs on par with my desktop (Sandy i7 and a 7950)

Worth the money in my mind.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great board. Put it together in my SG07 case with:
i7 - 2600
16gb 1333 DDR3
HD 7950
1TB HD + 30GB SSD Cache

Cons: When I got the board it had some kind of residue on the back, I didnt know what this was but when the board when in and has been running for a few days now with no issues.

Also when setting up RAID or SSD Cache (which requires raid) Make sure you have a ps/2 keyboard lying around.
To get into the RAID configuration screen a usb keyboard wont send "Ctrl-I"

Other Thoughts: This board was perfect and accepted my 16 gbs of ram right out of the box along with my 7950.

This included software is somewhat useful. I dont really use any of it besides the drivers though. But can see where it might come in handy.

For those that care this board + 7950 + i7 2600 in a SG07 case

i7 Temp: 32Idle-60Max
7950 Temp: 60idle-77Max

Still trying to get the idle gpu temps down, but when it sits in that small case and doesn't max above 80 I don't worry too much.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is an awesome laptop

Long battery life
BLUETOOTH (FN F3 brings up the option to turn it on)
Small but with CD drive
Sandybridge i5 is quick
Doesn't get hot, even when plight gaming it isnt uncomfortable

Cons: Will update when I find some,

Bloatware was annoying, but easily removed

Other Thoughts: There is bluetooth on this system, you justh ave to turn it on by the FN F3 command that brings up the wireless menu.

Awesome laptop though, bought it for school and it does its job nicely
