MSI GE40 2OC-009US


The MSI GE40 2OC-009US is a gaming ultrabook that delivers solid performance on the go, with a low price and a few flaws that can be overlooked.

Gaming ultrabook with slim portable design. Fourth-generation Intel Core i7 processor. Nvidia GeForce GTX760M graphics. Decent feature set. Solid battery life

Gets uncomfortably hot. Disappointing display. Awkward button bar mars otherwise decent trackpad. No keyboard backlight

The ultrabook ethos has made its way into gaming, as evidenced by the slim MSI GE40, the latest gaming ultraportable from MSI. Fitting into the same thin-bodied mold as the Razer Blade (2013), the MSI GE40 puts gaming prowess into a sleek aluminum clad...

Nice laptop, very please with it.


This is a powerful laptop with the capabilities to run high end graphics in games. I love that it's so compact and yet I can still enjoy my games on the go

It's not the most sturdy build. Within minutes of opening my laptop, my older sister ran her fingers (she has very long finger nails) across the keyboard saying, "Look how pretty this is." She failed to realize that her finger had snagged the semicolon...

Overall a great laptop and definitely one to consider, i am very happy with my purchase and am greatly enjoying this laptop.1080p isn't necessary on a 14 inch screen, but windows 8 can be a toss up if a pro or a con, i just got a shell that gave me a...

Fast, very responsive. Extremely quick start times (near those of Microsoft surface pros) can easily handle most all games out there on high to medium high settings, which still looks great on a 1600x900 display. Laptop is thin and light, making it...

This thing gets hot. like really hot. like i would recommend a cooler pad if your gaming over a long period of time just to keep the temps down. Overclocking is not really an option until the stock cooling system is upgraded. It must just put out a lot...

The laptop is really fast, thin, light and good looking

The right down corner of the monitor is dark. It is the only issue i found. So i choose to replace it

A lot of power for a small laptop


The MSI GE 40 20C-008US has been everything promised so far. I bought it for my son for college and he is extremely happy with it. The battery life is very good. (He scales the brightness down about halfway and it still looks good.) 7-9 hours with...

Weight, battery life, value for great specs-components

No touch sceen or back lit keys

False Advertising about Clock Speed


This website advertises this laptop running at 2.9 GH/z with no OC. Although the processor Intel® Core™ i7-4702MQ has wonderful architecure, this is not an accurate speed for this CPU.According directly to Intel, this mobile CPU will run at 2.2...

This product runs perfectly.


This product proves to be a high performance Laptop, I will do absolutely anything I could I ask and I would not break a sweet. The only down side is Windows 8, but I will admit that even though I've heard bad things about it, and that it was not the...

Can do anything I ask with no problems
