This laptop is definitely labeled as a gaming laptop!! I really feel GS70 is quite enough for me! Except its spec, personally, I love the appearance it has.

Powerhouse for Adobe video editing.

 

I would recommend this to anyone wanting a very capable mobile editing workstation.

I purchased this machine for the GTX 980 graphics card. It sports 2048 cuda cores. When you work in the Adobe CC Premiere, After Effects, 3D Studio Max world, the number of cuda cores are very important! More is better. Having 6 USB 3 ports is great,...

None so far.

Insanely Powerful, Gets The Job Done!

 

This computer... WOW. It boots up quickly, it can handle (almost) any task that I can throw at it, and the fact that I can upgrade (most of) the parts as much as I want (although I would have to void warranty) is a huge plus. I wish I could have sprung...

-Battery life is impressive for a gaming laptop -You can switch from Dedicated to Integrated graphics in order to save power -This was a suitable replacement for my desktop computer -Eye tracking is accurate and fun to use -RGB Keyboard is fun to look...

-Bulky (It was called a brick during class and I was asked how old it was...) -Fingerprint Magnet (Good thing I don't care that much about fingerprints... -Have had minor issues with playing games, all of which resolved after tinkering though. -Norton

I work in the architectural field and was looking for the best 17" pc laptop that was light enough to travel (~6.1 lbs). Specs looks great but unfortunately this laptop (and all current pc laptops) is still not ready for the big time. the graphics card...

best weight/performance/finish pc laptop available currently . Aluminum case (albeit avg. quality at best). 6th gen cpu. 4k resolution. Light (~6.1lb)

gtx 970m 3gb. Seriously? for 4k gaming? the non ssd drive started making scratching sounds the 3rd day. 4k display has great color but no gsync and slow refresh rates. useless for gaming.

Incredible Laptop.. Right out of the box perfection and an elite PC laptop.

 

Absolutely! This is one of the top of the line elite MSI gaming laptops to own! Treat yourself, you won't regret it!

The things I like most is the design. It feels of superior quality and the build and layout is amazing! It has everything that I am looking for in a gaming laptop!

Really there is nothing bad to say about this superior machine. I wish it did have Vos- link digitial optical input/output. But the Dynaudio sound is amazing!

All that power comes with a price

 

I haven't really put it through a good 3D design use yet.

It's so nice to be up and going in a mater of seconds. Great resolution. Not as heavy as I thought it might be. Nice looking sturdy body. All in all a great purchase.

The price for all the power seems to be the battery life. Only get 2-3 hrs with constant use or video playing.

First Day Went Great!!

 

- I'm currently waiting for my RMA to go through which takes far too long considering what I paid for the product, the hoops that they require you to jump through within the first couple days of use is an enormous headache...Once i receive the laptop...

- Eye Tracking works phenomenally well! - Boots quite fast - Beautiful design and keyboard - Windows 10 is surprisingly easy to use

- No HDMI in - 36 hours after it arrived it blue screened and locked up to the point it would not restart...period
