Taken apart, the components of this system are fine. With sufficient cooling, the GPU is adequate for basic gaming use. The CPU is more then adequate. The memory has never been an issue. I bypassed my hard drive issues by removing the stock drive and replacing it with a SSD stick, so I can't tell you if that would have developed into a real problem or not. In short, while I still loathe the misrepresentation in the naming of the 1060 line, the hardware itself is fine. The issue I have is what MSI did with it. Every issue I have is due to compromises on MSI's end to cut weight and (presumably) cost. Beyond disabling the trackpad and using an external mouse, and carrying the laptop in a hard case (yerch), there's no real fix for these new issues, as far as I can tell. Disappointing.
This is, decidedly a viable computer that so far has worked well for me. The keyboard's responsive, it hasn't crashed on me, crisp display. Speakers are decent for a laptop, but nothing to write home about. As an every day computer it works just fine.
Unfortunately, I have a lot more detail in complaints than in complements with this machine.
So, I bought this laptop in a rush due to a decent holiday sale. It came out of the box with hardware that was different than listed (which amazon quickly rectified, thank you very much!) It also came out of the box with a disc imagining error message that the companies tech support hasn't been able to come up with any explanation for. Nothing says "disappointment" quite like having to contact tech support first day to try to track down errors with your new hardware. The MSI software in general has been somewhat problematic for me...it insisted on making a clean backup, which it exported in CD sized image files...this machine doesn't have a CD burner. The software suite is one size fits all, and it has a lot of bells and whistles that you can play with that do nothing on this machine.
Over-all, I'm somewhat disappointed by it's performance to date. I bought this machine because it was listed as "VR ready" and it seemed obvious that it would perform better than several generation old graphics card technologies. Newer, higher end graphics card=better, right? Not so much, as I've found out... I did some research on the 1060 family, but not enough, and discovered only after purchasing the system that there's a lot missing from the 3gb version besides the extra memory. That's false advertising, but it's on the side of the GPU company.
For some of the games I actually play, my old GTX 960 actually provided better performance. I've had to cut down several stops on most settings in Fallout 4 to make it run at 45-60FPS on this laptop, compared to what gets me a rock solid 60FPS on my several year old desktops card. Skyrim special edition, interestingly, actually runs better on this machine, and I'm completely baffled as to why.
I've had the wireless and bluetooth shut down on my at the same time several times so far, and I'm going to go out on a limb and guess there is a combination bluetooth/wifi module in this unit that's faulty. I'm going to be contacting customer support again over this, which is disappointing to say the least.
The webcam has, quite possibly, the worst picture I've seen in the last decade. It's not a feature on this computer I would use much even if it was great, but since it's absolutely horrible, I'd have rather it wasn't included at all. And to "use" this, you have to dig into that "great" MSI control software to enable it.
The fact that the battery, memory, HDD and SSD bays are behind a single hard to remove cover this is behind a "warranty void" sticker is also a big problem...had I realized this, I definitely would not have purchased the computer. I have it in writing from the company that voiding the sticker will not, in fact, void your warranty, provided you don't try to claim based on physical damaged caused by you, but it's still a horrible system.
It's light enough to be held with a strong hand.
Adequate cooling, though the fans can get loud. Throttling hasn't been an issue and there's a dedicated hardware button to run the fans at full blast.
Excellent placement of ports. Most of the ports are on the left side so it won't get in the way of the mouse (though the power cord is on the right, it's an L shape jack so it doesn't stick straight out).
Keyboard feels nice, and has 3 levels of white lighting (and can be turned off). Kinda wish the color was red (so it would be easier on the eyes at night). Page up/down is the top-right most keys so it makes it convenient to use it.
Touchpad is as cheap as your average laptop. The mouse buttons below the touchpad require some force and have a very loud click.
The function key is located on the left by default, but it can be swapped with the Windows key on the right in the BIOS. I prefer the FN key on the right since one hand now can be used to adjust volume and screen brightness, which are the arrow keys. Heck I even switched the actual keycaps so the Windows key is on the left and FN on the right to avoid confusion.
Great specs for the price. Although it's the 3GB version of the 1060 it performs well on games with max settings with the 1080p screen. 6GB VRAM would have been nicer, though it's something that would only be noticeable looking at a texture that's not moving (even then higher resolution screens would bring out the details better).
SLOW hard drive, including bloatware. I removed that and put in an NVMe drive with speeds over 3,000 MB/s.
Screen is excellent ("IPS level" they say). Viewing angles are great from side to side, and though the screen darkens from looking at above it the colors don't wash out like a terrible TN panel.
Nice box it has, even has a handle.
Terrible flat-sounding speakers (no bass at all). Has separate headphone and mic jacks, and easy to tell what port you plugged in the dark (headphone jack as a nice click compared to the mic-in).
Don't know anything about battery life, since I almost always have it plugged in.
The screen panel is flimsy yet sturdy enough.
It has nice features for a great price.
Update: After doing some research I decided to try and install the m2 ssd again. After examining the board it was visible that the screw could be removed. Be sure to have a really good screwdriver or some needle nose pliers on hand. The screw was very tightly Installed on the motherboard that I had carefully use the pliers to get the screw started. Very scary since I was worried to damage my motherboard. Now that I have my SSD installed I'm very happy with the PC.
the screen is plasma and can be used outside with minimal glare when the sun isn't behind your back
