MSI Laptop GT Series GT683DX-840US Intel Core i7 2nd Gen 2670QM (2.20 GHz) 12 GB Memory 750 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570M 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Runs games great even with basic AA (45fps w AA and medium/high settings in Meridian during prime time)
- Great stats and solid performance
- Love that you can run fans full speed whenever you please and the fans seem to scale pretty well automatically
- Great shipping from Newegg as always

Cons: - Keyboard is not sturdy at all and you can feel it. My comma key was broken upon shipping and the P key is a little sketchy already.
- Turbo button didn't appear to have much performance effect on Rift
- Gets pretty hot (which is expected), do NOT rest it on your lap (unless you want to burn your buys)
- The area under the screen (where the Turbo, Fan, Wireless On/Off, etc..) scratches easily

Other Thoughts: Very happy with the purchase as I travel weekly for work and need something to do in remote locations. The Pros faaaaaarrrr outweigh the cons (the only one that matters is the cheapness of the keyboard). It is a solid performing laptop that I would purchase again if given the choice to buy or get another similarly priced model on.
