Accurate and durable keys

Precision is the name of the game with this model’s mechanical keyboard. The switch design underneath each key makes for increased accuracy when typing, with more tactile feedback on each press. It makes them more durable too, so not only will you get the right inputs in the heat of battle, but it’ll last longer too.

Fantastic level entry gaming machine

I found this laptop to be a very competent and easy to use and set up. The graphics in game are extremely good for a laptop and would recommend this as a first, entry level gaming laptop.

Amazing product

Wasn't really expecting much from this computer but has really surprised me with what it can do. Runs effortlessly with out problems runs everything I need and runs all my programs and code with out problems. Screen resolution is the best, clear and can see everything. Would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a decent laptop that will last

Great product

I was looking for a good reliable laptop to do my music production on,. Laptops i was. Looking at were very expensive intill i came across the msi, it had everything i needed to do my music productions and gaming on, and was at a good price also, im very happy with my purchase so far and have already recommended this product to a friend.

Just the job!

I needed an entry level gaming pc so my 9yr old can play fortnite, minecraft etc. Bought and paid for in the morning with guaranteed next day it was ideal. Son is over the moon, it plays all the games he's throwing at it and looks great. A*******


This laptop is certainly a lot faster than my ageing HP. But I have a few issues with it; - Finger prints really make a mess of the case. The finish is horrible and it already looks a mess after only a couple of weeks. - The keys and trackpad aren't always as responsive as you'd like. - The cursor keys and enter key are slightly out of place to where I'd expect them to be and where my hand falls naturally to use them which gets annoying. - In the last couple of days an Adobe update keeps sending the screen black. As yet my only solution is connecting another monitor and uninstalling the update. Then the screen goes back to normal. Overall I would not recommend this laptop.

Really happy

Really good happy with the speed and copes with what i use it for. I do a lot of digital drawing so im so happy it doesnt lag can finally draw and not worry a part is missing! Really glad i decided to buy this and would definitely recommend! Thank you
