Reviews doesn't say anything. Lots of people has computers from Apple with lots of trouble. They do not all write a review.
Anyway, MSI is a great brand. Sounds not, but still is. A lot of people don't know MSI made cheap computer years ago. Budget-pc's and laptops. So, exactly they always made low-pricing pc's but with good quaility inside. Nowadays, they make still cheap laptops & pc's but with those high quality components. So if there are people are thinking that MSI sucks or is a unknown brand. Well, don't think that way!
Good brand just like asus.
If I should give an advice. If you care about
= MSI ( Business-look ) || Asus (Glitter&Glamour)
= I didn't look up. For a gaming laptop, I recommend 'at least' an i5. The processor is only important during startup computer + startup gaming. During the game its NOT important.
= I recommend an Nvidia. If you have an AMD the chance is (much) bigger you get trouble with the drivers. Dont believe me? I bought a laptop with an AMD 6750M 7 months ago. I had already trouble with the drivers and had to bring my laptop to the store to fix it.
Guess you wanna know with one you should need from Nvidia in this case. GT555m = medium. If you wanna play games on high quality you much go for a GTX.
NOTE* = Very important, the location of the graphic card. Make sure its not under the ASWD-keys. Your fingers will burn away. So inform about this at the developer or store.
= Windows 7 takes 1.5GB RAM already. So if you have 4GB ( example ). You can use 2.5GB. So if you want to play normal games without high performance. Take at least 6GB RAM.
I guess you wanna play 'big' games. At least 8GB. So sure. Better performane.
= At least 1600x900.
An 6-cell is standard. Prefer 8-cell. ( lithium* )
Recommend backlit, its so great. If you don't care about it, doesn't matter.
Hopefully I helped you with this information. I didn't look up which components both laptops have, but I am sure this information is usefull by making your choice!
