It is the first laptop I've owned but is also the fastest computer I've ever owned.

Once I received it I began playing very graphics intensive games such as Crysis 3 (a code for the game does come with the laptop), Space Engine, and Portal 2.

This is an amazing laptop for the price,

Pros:

Pure AMD so no Intel/Nvidia tax
GPU is amazing on this thing
eyefinity on a laptop (because why not?)
The sound system is amazing on this baby
The screen is also amazing
The fan on this thing can be a little loud with turbo fan on but max the volume while gaming, you won't notice.
Battery life is also nice (around 5 hours. hell, I got around 4 hours while running 7 virtual computers and installing the OS on 4 of them at the same time)
I get compliments on the keyboard all the time :)
The power button is white when you are using just the APU and orange when the sleeping beast (8970m) is on
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cons:

The 8970 seems to be too powerful for just the battery, it will need to be plugged in or it will reboot on you.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have talked to MSI customer support and they said removing the warranty sticker doesn't really void the warranty, also do a google search a lot of people have had the same response ([...] MSI support was also very helpful in getting the second HDD bracket. I didn't want to send my credit info in clear text over the internet so I gave them my number and we settled it over the phone.

That being said I put a 128GB SSD (Crucial M4) in there and reinstalled windows 8. All I have to say is do it. Install it right meow. It is blazing fast.

I want to upgrade this thing to 32GB of RAM so bad (because why not and RAMdisk).

Now the fun stuff.....gaming!

When the orange light goes on it means business.

had for about a month and no problems-just some bugs in windows 8. It will game at least an hour and a half on battery (had 26% battery still) with modern titles -DX 10 & 11. Plays Crysis 3 at moderate settings. Wish it had SDD, but at least the HDD is a 7200rpm model. Great keyboard, cam & mic. Plays bluray nice and smooth..and great batt life.
the downs are it weighs 8lbs and windows 8 dims screen during movies no matter the setting. The case shows smudges some but I just wipe it down once a week or so.
If your considering this unit, dont even hesitate-PULL THE TRIGGER

The Good:
First and foremost, This is a GREAT gaming computer, don't let the price fool you. Every game I have played (over 10) and many games released this year (2013) have played flawlessly, I'm talking about 1080p full HD and high/ultra settings. I was worried because I wanted a computer with Intel/Nvidia components but I just couldn't fork over the extra dough, so I settled for this one, and I couldn't be happier, for this price range you get a lot. The graphics card is a high end model Radeon 8970m, it equals to desktop performance gaming, when playing games on this computer my mouth starts to water and I start a flood, the graphics are truly amazing! It is paired with a AMD A10 AMD (5th gen, latest) quad core CPU. People love to say that AMD make horrible CPU's, let me tell you right now, the CPU is plenty fast for things you need to get done. The computer is not slow at all, so don't believe the fan boys of Intel. Unless your going to editing huge HD videos or transferring 10000 of gbs every single day, amd Is the way to go, besides the have always had a edge in graphics cards over Nvidia. The keyboard is nice and surprisingly sturdy. The computer looks really good, the pictures here on amazon does not do the computer justice, you have to see to believe. It is heavy but still very portable, I have no problem taking it with me, it's not like your going to break your back trying to carry the thing around like some folks like to think. To my surprise, there is even a back-lit MSI logo on the lid of the computer (kind of what mac books do). It's eye-candy and a bonus.

THE BAD.
However even though most of it is good my computer did come damaged. The touch pad and left/right click buttons did not work, even when I first turned on the computer.

I bought mine as a refurb and haven't had a single issue so if you were doubting getting a refurb for yourself, you shouldn't worry; everything is on the up and up.

I was looking to buy a powerful laptop with discrete graphics, because my Mac was just not meeting my requirements. Once I received it I began playing very graphics intensive games such as Crysis 3 (a code for the game does come with the laptop), Space Engine, and Portal 2.
I have also used this laptop for programing C++, C# and Java, and works exceptionally well. A calculation which would crash a Macbook Air does not even lower the frame rate at all on the GX70.
This laptop is bulky, but compared to other high performance laptops with discrete graphics, thin.
The 8970m Crossfire is currently the second best mobile graphics card, only seconded by the Nvidia Gtx 780 Sli.
I would recommend this laptop to anybody that is looking for a laptop with a powerful CPU and GPU, but I would not recommend it as a travel laptop.
This laptop will always be dear to my heart.
