  • Other than that, the look is beautiful and I love the big display

  • Love the clean look of the keyboard without having a cramped numpad

Reviews around gaming (4.45 of 5)

  • Fans get decently loud while gaming but cannot hear it with my headphones on
  • But very light considering that it is a powerful gaming laptop
  • This laptop has great quality and very good gaming stuff
  • Can't recommend everyone to get this laptop enough if you are looking for a good gaming laptop.
  • Battery life while gaming is mediocre at best, terrible at worst, it lasts for me at least 2 hours, but most of the time only around an hour and a half

Reviews around design (4.27 of 5)

  • The sleek exterior design perfectly fits my aesthetic, along with the quiet fans and great versatility I would definitely say it was a worthwhile purchase
  • It's a great keyboard, great design, great performance.
  • Looks great and does not have an overly aggressive "gaming laptop" design aside from the MSI logo.- Thin and light
  • The other thing I love about this laptop is that the exterior is very muted as opposed to most other "gaming" laptops with their red highlights and harsh angles and design.
  • Very glad to see more manufacturers abandoning the obnoxious "gamer" design with aggressive lights, branding, and sharp angles

Reviews around battery life (3.61 of 5)

  • Battery life is also good enough, though not incredible.
  • Great build quality, battery life, cooling and performance for the price
  • I stated my opinion of the pricing in the shorter version, right now I'm just having a blast with this laptop, way better than rog zephyrus, I'm glad I returned that laptop, the battery life is pathetic
  • And I figured if gamers are raving about it, and the battery life is good, and it's not too
  • But it was a beast at over 7lbs and the battery life was not good

Reviews around thing (3.17 of 5)

  • This thing screams elegance and sophistication but with a hint of bad boy gamer in it
  • If I were to really try and find the worse thing about this laptop is its capability to run newest update of windows 10
  • The second and so far the only other bad thing is the fans
  • Noise - I was under the impression this thing was quiet
  • Physically, this thing is great but slightly flimsy which was done to cut down on weight, so "I get it"

Reviews around fan (1.98 of 5)

  • Great performance / fastCons:- Computer gets very hot which causes loud fans
  • Bought this laptop primarily for studies as well as to be able to use it when I go home for the weekends
  • Gets hot to the touch while under load and the fans get pretty loud
  • And when they're "idle" there is an annoying whirring/clicking/humming coming from the right fan.
  • The keyboard gets warm and if you accidentally venture above the function row, especially by the escape button or above the delete button where the right fan buzzes constantly, be sure you're wearing your Nomex gloves or you may get burned.

Reviews around bite (1.61 of 5)

  • The font on the keys is a bit odd, but the key travel is very nice and the colors are a pretty touch
  • I purchased this coming from a daily Surface Pro 3 user because I wanted something a bit more powerful for work and play
  • GPU's voltage curve can drop a bit as well to drop a few degrees during full load
  • Although it seems like the construction is a bit flexy and flimsy, the actual part of the laptop are all great; exactly what I was hoping for.
  • One reason I have only given 4 stars is that I'm finding the dragon center and other software that came with the laptop a bit hard to understand

Reviews around drive (1.00 of 5)

  • so one must remove the motherboard from the laptop in order to install/change the ram or the hard drive
  • The only issue is the small SSD, but that is easily solved by using an external hard drive.
  • It has a second M.2 hard drive slot, but to access it you have to disassemble literally everything
  • I made the mistake of only getting a 256 gig hard drive, and I almost filled it up
  • So I instead bought an external hard drive with 4TB for $80
