    With only an NVIDIA GeForce 840M for graphics processing, it isn’t really a “Gaming” laptop, more of an entertainment system that is capable of some games.
    Laptops should not be marketed as being for gaming, as they all inevitably suffer from heat and breakdown quicker than they normally would under every day usage.
    Until Manufacturers implement an efficient and effective cooling system in laptops, stick to gaming on a desktop system.

      ugh, spoken like someone who has little experience. A powerful laptop is like a powerful car. If you take care of it and be sensible it’s reliability is a moot point. Are you suggesting tiny and low power consumer laptops have greater reliability? Enough airflow, fans and heatsinks can be done to cool 100W GPUs effectively it’s the big OEMs (MSI is the worst I just read their latest & greatest GT60 throttles like a serial killer) who prioritise weight and cost more than temps who cause this misconception. I’ve had a 15″ Clevo with 580M and a 17″ with 680M over the last 3.5 years and the ability to pick up my system and take it with me is such a part of my daily life now I can’t imagine how I was ever tethered to a desk 10 hours in a row. I do agree a 840M is underwhelming, but ultimately it’s not the size that matters it’s whether it does the job well enough ;p nor does everyone have $2k to drop on a laptop

        Actually it is spoken from vast experience with people constantly posting their complaints and issues regarding so called “gaming” laptops on two tech support sites which I assist on.
        But if you want to compare your experience with two laptops …..

    Why you criticize this computer?
    You do not even know what it is and it is true that if we take maximum care is a PC that can keep for many years.

    Up to 128GB SSD? Gentlemen, you can configure 250GD SSD alongside the standard SATA HDD. I did it anyway and it works. :P I got the Samsung SSD 250GB 840EVO installed and its awesome!!!

      How does it work? Where do you place the SSD? I’ve found a similar MSI at an after Christmas sale, MSI GP60 2PE-225NE, with same cabinet, and only minor, minor differences in configuration (of no importance to me since I mainly need a very good word processor, however with great graphics and lots of storage; I am a lawyer) at approx 60 % the price of this one, but only 750 HDD. I figured one can replace HDD to the combo SSD + mecanical HDD. Can not find any information about replacing with combo storage discs on Internet. No pics.

    Is it possible to install an mSATA drive on this laptop? Any help would be appreciated.

    Be warned. Had mine for only two months when the hard drive kacked.

    Totally unacceptable.

    And if you don’t actually get a chance to play with it “hands on”, it is constructed of cheap flimsy plastic. Feels like it will break in an instant…….and it did.

    Save your money.
