14" MSI GS43VR 6RE(Phantom Pro)-002, FHD, i7 6700HQ, 16GB DDR4, 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD+1TB HDD, 6GB GTX 1060, Windows 10 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful but Compact and Light Bought this after an extended search for a relatively light but powerful unit,suitable for Cad work whilst travelling. Runs Autodesk Inventor and AutoCad Mechanical 2016 like a dream.Battery life is reasonable got 4 hours of Inventor modelling in ,before the 10% warning, using balanced mode. Can get a little warm under load but wasn't what I call excessive.Gaming load wil put more stress on the CPU and GPU so effect on battery life and temps is likely to be more significant. As one of the other reviews stated there is quite a bit of bloatware pre -installed most of which is easily removed using Revo. The specification list is slightly inaccurate it says that aswell as 1 x USB 3.1 port, there are 2 x USB 3 and 1 x USB 2 ports, but there is no USB 2 port. Build quality is excellent,with a good sturdy chassis despite the light weight, keyboard is pleasant to use, don't use the track pad so can't comment on that. Screen is nice and bright and colours well represented. If you are going to use it for Cad you'll need to play around with the display settings a bit, to get a nice balance between text and icon size. All in all a nice piece of kit and reasonable value when compared to a similar spec'd Alienware 13. Also the usual excellent service from Scan, ordered Tuesday delivered Wednesday inside the allotted time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit of a problem. I purchased this laptop to replace a 2013 macbook pro. After reading multiple reviews and watching as many videos on this laptop as possible I was reasonable happy to pull the trigger on a £1,499 laptop. Couldn't sleep at all that evening, even upgraded the free delivery to pre 10:30 am through DPD directly as I was that excited. I've unboxed a fair number of laptops, with a price range from £150 to £1,200 (previously to this one) and I would say the experience was just below my macbook pro unboxing. Really nice box, solid feel and really nice packaging. (Scan used one huge box I could barely get it through my doors) Felt like a really premium product and I was only opening the boxes. Getting to the laptop itself I was super excited to get it booted up. Battery was dead and I mean full on dead. After letting it charge for a few minutes I booted up the laptop. Prefect experience creating my user account on Windows 10, thanks to the PCIe NVMe drive it's super quick (2+GB/s Read & 1.8GB/s write). So far I was reasonably happy, keyboard was nice to type on. The track pad would require some getting used to, would have preferred dedicated left and right buttons. There is so much bloatware on this laptop it's unreal. Honestly it's just pathetic. 100% CPU usage is a "feature" by MSI to speed up transfer speeds, disable this or your fans will ramp up when you transfer files. It was at this point an audio test was due, do note I was happy with what I'd heard in the reviews. At this point the laptop had been turned on for 5 minutes and sad to say the moment I heard the audio quality I had an RMA open. It was horrible. A £150 laptop beat this £1500 in terms of audio quality. That is correct a cheap £150 HP laptop, beat this £1500 laptop in terms of audio quality. With this I did some more research into MSI and their laptops, turns out this is the area they cheap out the most in. It's a common issue with MSI laptops. Other reviews had perfect audio quality. If you really want a laptop, grab yourself a 3XS laptop, they're cheaper and they have G-Sync, which I plan to do once I'm credited!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great all-round laptop for work and play Pros While it's a little heavier and chunkier than business notebooks, I really value having a good selection of built-in ports, and the extensibility of a SATA drive as well as the SSD. No need to carry around a big bag of accessories! The GPU is amazing and has coped well with any game I have tried. Keyboard, touchpad and display are all good quality. The touchpad actually works as a replacement for a mouse and is better than others I have come across before. All in all I am very happy with this laptop. Both as a developer and a gamer it suits me well. Cons When the GPU is under load, it does kick out a lot of heat. Fan noise is not too bad but you wouldn't want to have it on your lap. The MSI badge, and the styling in gerneral, is actually quite discreet, but for business meetings I would have preferred something that doesn't say 'gaming series' on the lid! My badge is covered by a sticker now. The build quality is good, but the case doesn't exude toughness. I wouldn't feel happy just slinging this laptop in a bag: it needs a decent case when you are moving it around. The 180W power supply is big and heavy. Battery life for email/word processing is around 3 hours, which is fine for me but low by today's standards. Although the keyboard is generally very good, the enter key is smaller than I am used to and I do keep hitting # by mistake. Guess I will get used to it over time.
