    Awesome ! I love the look, very alienware, but better value.

  • Ned

    the spec is really very good for the price. I think the GFX is the weak spot however. but adding something more powerful might require more space inside, as well as adding to the price. probably cost 2k for the higher end nvidia mobile gpu

    I have one of these already 🙂 I can highly recommend it, but I dont have the one with the SSD, mine is raid 0 – two mechanicals.

    Only negative is the heat on your lap, even when watching youtube videos. it can get a bit toasty imo

    Very loud design and I agree, almost alienware like in appearance.

    I do like it however, but I wish more of these manufacturers would offer backlit keyboards like apple do. its really helpful at night or in darker condfitions.

  • Garry

    I really like the looks of it. the panels along the edges is nice. Can the colours be controlled like alienware via software?

  • Todd

    Do they make a 17 inch version of this?

  • Davis

    I dont like the styling, its over the top imo. Good spec but needs a different chassis design

  • Joseph

    Core i7 is great, id love one myself for mobile. This is 4 and 4 core, right?

  • Minni

    They make brilliant laptops but i had their last gt and the battery failed in 9 months. They replaced it eventually

    17″ version with backlit keyboard and better graphics will be a blast later on this year, MSI gaming is the best!!!!
