-The sound is truly wonderful. I played youtube songs on my laptop, and no matter how high, or how low I put it, it sounded crisp and clear. The DYNAUDIO works excellent. It makes you feel like you are really in a game, or if watching a movie, just sounds amazing.
-Keyboard. The keyboard is excellent. The keys are nicely spaced apart, making it simple to type. It also comes with a keypad, which is excellent since there are many laptops of this size that don't have one.
-The turbo fan works wonders. I played a game for around an hour, and unlike my old laptop that would get really hot after 20 minutes of playing, this laptop stayed cool throughout the entire hour. Although some people say the fan is loud, I could barely hear it while playing my game, and with headphones on, you won't even know it's on.
-The Cinema Pro is amazing. It makes the colors sharper, more crisp. It really makes the movies, games, pages that you are looking at pop out. It is just absolutely beautiful.
-The software on this game is great, as is the video card. I played L4D2, with all my settings maxed out. The game play was smooth, with not one hitch nor lag nor frame freeze. I loaded almost instantly into each new level, when it would take me a few minutes with my old laptop. The images are much nicer, the resolution amazing.
-The keys are marked with arrows. You can tell it's a gaming laptop by how the red arrows point forward, backward, left, and right.Read more ›
So, MSI loses a lot of points from me for the build quality, reliability, and support. That's the bad.
The good is that it ran positively everything I threw at it without stuttering or getting bogged down. These machines are fast and capable, for sure, and I was (and still am) quite happy with its performance. The built-in sound system is also quite good for a laptop. It gets loud and sounds pretty decent for an on-board speaker set.
Other reviews said the keyboard was not good. Wrong. The keyboard is very nice, solid and quite.
There are two things that I don't like:
1) The keyboard is not backlit. I would greatly prefer a backlit keyboard.
2) There is no light indicating if the caps light is on.
3) There is no light indicating when the power cord is plugged in.
In summary, it could be better in some small features, but it's got it where it counts.

TL;DR: Don't buy MSI. Get an alienware.
