Consumer review (newegg.com)

Love the machine!

 

for the price good machne

For what I wanted it to do is play games without worrying about performance issues is my greatest pros. It has 3 m.2 slots and I loaded it with 3 128gb m.2 ssds in it and a 1 tb ssd on the normal ssd. This thing flies.Love it

Heats up, some slow downs. Bios need to get unlocked so I can install other OSes

Great Gaming machine!

 

- Powerful - can play most of the 2014 - 2015 games at very high settings. Can play at ultra settings too though fairly smooth (I could only test AC unity on Ultra). - Good number of features for the price

- Some bloatware can slow the load time. They are not entirely unnecessary though. I did disable all of them at startup. - This is not necessarily a con but just thought I'll mention it. Battery is not great. It lasts about 1 or 2 hours.

Best laptop with 970m

 

Although the trackpad leaves a lot to be desired, this is hands-down the best laptop I've used. It's sure to last me for the next few years.

Almost everything with this laptop is absolutely top-notch. The build of the actual laptop itself feels and looks great. The keys on the keyboard feel especially great ; As for the speed of the laptop - you can't get much better. The 970m paired with...

The touchpad leaves a lot to be desired. It works - but not much else. I use a mouse 99% of the time, so it doesn't really effect me. However, compared to a Macbook touchpad it's not nearly as responsive. If you're someone who relies heavily on a...

Amazing, But...

 

Overall, the laptop is awesome as I expected. The hardware is spot on for mobile gaming, I wish it would have shipped with the 6GB 970m, but the 3GB will do for what I do on the road. Again, and I cannot stress this enough, just do yourself a favor if...

Speed, this thing is fast, especially for the price. You really cant beat it. The screen has nice preset options that you can choose from that are pretty nice. The keyboard as always with MSI looks great, the feel could be a little better though as the...

MAJOR con is the OS that is shipped with the laptop. I love windows 8.1, but man MSI really loaded this thing up with bloat. I recommend instantly doing a fresh 8.1 install and getting only the drivers you need. Mine fresh out of the box wouldn't load...

Bought for Engineering and Gaming in College

 

UPDATE THE DRIVER 970m seems to have issues with chrome and switching between applications. I did have issues with Hitman:Absolution crashing to the desktop, and Youtube crashing Chrome. Also, buy a cooling pad to save yourself the grief of the laptop...

Steel Series Keyboard is fantastic. Lighting is highly customizable. Overall layout of the keyboard is very nice. Very powerful laptop. Ran Hitman: Absolution on max graphics very well. I have no complaints against the track pad, which I use minimally....

Bloatware. Came with a lot of software I didn't need. Gets warm beneath the left hand when running very intense programs. Fan is noticeably loud when running high demand programs. Poor battery life (but then again it is a mobile desktop replacement,...
