Pros: Great price based on the hardware specs. 1-touch buttons are functional and effective, as advertised.

Cons: Poor case design with very INSUFFICIENT cooling, basically necessitating a chill pad. Laptop itself radiates A LOT of heat, so actually placing it on your lap is a no-go as well. Fans are VERY loud. Overall case design just feels kind of cheap.

Other Thoughts: If you're using the thing as a portal desktop where it's going to sit on a chill pad all day, then it's fine...but personally, I found that the overall case design just felt cheap and the cooling wasn't near adequate to match the hardware specs. I returned the laptop and replaced it with an ASUS G-series of equal hardware specs.

Also, I keep my laptops in Sleep mode a lot while sleeping sometimes, and the MSI case design has a blinking orange light to show that it's charging in the front....that got kind of annoying when I was trying to sleep.
