The main reason for choosing this MSi GT70 is for the amount of RAM. I did compare it with ASUS laptops too, I wanted more than 8 GB. The MSi has 12 GB. I also wanted a powerful graphics card and this one had a GeForce X675m. Although the graphics card only comes with 2 GB of memory this is still vast improvement over my Dell i7core Studio. I do video editing and wanted a powerful machine. The MSi GT70 does the job fine.
Games: I'm not a big gamer and this is not the main reason for purchasing this laptop. I did play one game that always crashed on every computer I have owned in the last 10 years. Playing on the GT70 was a pleasure. With turbo boost and manual fan control, it played as smooth as butter. There was not one map scenario I could not play, ...and no crashes.
1. I read some people were experiencing hinges breaking. This certainly is scary, but is a rare condition - so don't expect this to be a frequent occurring defect and MSI might have corrected the issue by this date. Google it for more info.
2. Unknown brand which I mentioned before.
So let me list out the pros and cons as of this date. I'll start with the cons first.
1. Windows 8 was a little tricky at first, I would of rather have windows 7 which is on my Dell and I am familiar with it. However, after a short time of working with it, I found W8 to be very intuitive and perhaps easier to use. It is formatted in an Apps format for the the Windows Start page.Read more ›
Pros- Gaming. As listed the GTX675m has worked flawlessly. Playing planet side 2 max settings and this computer hasn't even flinched. My 2008 HP with the gt130m couldn't handle it.
Startup- I know win8 has had complaints but I honestly got used to it and it works great and starts up super fast. I counted 16 seconds from cold start.
Little bloatware- some people may not know what im talking about but its useless programs that just take up space.
Screen- professional reviews say viewing angle is bad but I tried and I think their complaint is a little exaggerated. Screen is also very bright and looks great!
Cons- power brick is large but expected for this laptop is expected.
Fan- when the fan's turbo mode is on it sounds quite loud but it's also not something that is totally necessary to be used unless heavy gaming otherwise the laptop stays quite cool. This is really a pro more than a con.
Camera- LESSON TO LEARN IF YOU BUY; you have to engage the camera for it to work. I think it was fn-f6 to turn the webcam on.
All in all this laptop has by far and away been a great laptop. I'm enjoying gaming and ease of use (once you learn win8). I suggest this laptop especially for the price. Compare the specs at this price and I highly doubt you'll find better for the same or cheaper.
Pros: Extremely fast, multi tasks well, plays all my games at max res with no problems. Plays blu ray discs without issues. Plenty of 3.0 and 2.0 USB connectivity. The keyboard is responsive and feels high quality. The multi color lighting choices for the back-lit keys are awesome.
CONS: Huge beast! But still portable enough for me. Worth having for the screen size. When in games and on Skype, people have mentioned that my microphone volume is a bit low. they have to increase their volume. I have my settings at max!
Overall, very pleased with this Laptop. I would highly recommend MSI!
