Great little guy


Would buy again

On board nvidia, decent speed. Weight is a good combination of size/power to heft. Not too heavy and not small at all. Good battery life for power and size. On full charge one year later using High Performance this little guy lasters over 3 hours

As petty as it sounds I wish the home and end keys weren't function keys to PgUp and PgDn. I use those keys a lot when programming

Decent, but look elsewhere


This laptop appears to be quite a bit of bang for the buck at first glance. However, the issues I had I would seriously reconsider purchasing another or recomending it. The wifi issues ALONE make this purchase questionable. A laptop is supposed to be...

Cheap ; Graphic card v. total price ratio ; processor ; weight

Wifi card ; merciless wifi connection drops ; Does not "sleep" (will crash and reboot after sleeping)

Decent computer for the money if not for

Hard major hardware failure in less than 2 months worth of owning it. Looked online for other people experiencing my issue and it appears to not be uncommon with this MSI computer. I would look else where for a similar deal

Great Buy


All in all, I am very satisfied with this machine. It's fast enough they my code compiles in a blink (where my old budget model could take a few seconds), and light enough for lugging around campus. Plus I can play my games without having to have spent...

Bang for buck: With the 645M dedicated 2GB graphics card this laptop plays anything I want it too ; The weight is great considering how large the screen is and that it comes with a number pad

Screen is too glarey (though I knew about this at purchase) ; Comes installed with Windows 8 and no option for 7. Having to take hours to set up 7 then download all the drivers was annoying enough that I can't rate this 5. But to MSI's credit they have...
