MSI GE Series GE70 2OE-017US 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Price for the total package.
Solid performance.
Easy upgrade to add nSATA

Cons: Didn't come with an mSATA ~ but that's a simple fix
Runs a little hot. But it's a hot machine...

Other Thoughts: Back plate (to upgrade RAM or mSATA...) is big

Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDAT120GB-DX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: SATA III / Cheap / WOW SMALL / easy to install / Boot time cut from 9 seconds to 6!
... yes, 3 seconds isn't a big drop ~ but it's a new "out of the box" laptop with no new bloat on it yet.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: should have gotten a bigger card!
I picked the MSI laptop and the only thing it was missing was the SSD boot drive.
...thus I picked this up.

Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC, dual-band, 2x2 Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Mini PCI Express combo Adapter - 867 Mbps+300Mbps - Internal
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: upgrade to 802.11ac / good price / internal upgrade not USB

Cons: laptop was a bit of a pain to pull old card (under keyboard on that model) as Toshiba uses lock-tight on the screw threads.

Other Thoughts: Once it went in... the connection to the main router was solid.
Now I just need to upgrade the router...
