Awsome Laptop, I love it.
17 May 2017
I have had this laptop a few weeks now, and I am blown away on how awesome it is. My needs are simple: I wanted a gaming machine that is portable. This ticks all the boxes. The laptop is slim, but as others have said it's comes with a beefy power supply.
Be aware though having the GTX 1060 doesn't mean you will get blistering FPS on the latest AAA titles on ultra settings. Using ultra settings the FPS I am getting is:
1. Ghost Recon is 38 FPS (68 FPS on high).
2. SWTOR is 120-88FPS.
3. Half life 2 intro is 200FPS
3. Half Life 1 is 100FPS (Probably capped).
4. Kerbal space program 80-100FPS.
MSI software will allow you to monitor the FANS/Temp and set the fans if you wish. (You can connect it to a mobile phone to get stats while you are gaming) The fans are not quiet when gaming when they are running 4000RPM + but I wouldn't say they are annoying and can't really be heard much over headphones. To be honest they are quieter than I expected. It does get warm again when gaming but I wouldn't say it's uncomfortable.
The indicator by the power button is red for Intel Graphics and orange for Nvidia.
The Keyboard is by Steel Series light up different colours and patterns via it's software.
The screen is 120Hz on the 1080P Model and it's really nice size and lovely colours.
I did have one issue with the wireless (By Killer Networks) kept restarting it's service a few times, but downloading the latest software cured that, so I would recommend downloading all the latest drivers etc.
Finally I would recommend getting a mouse as I find that easier than the track pad.
