Quality of MSI Laptops

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am in the market for a new laptop and came across a few MSI laptops that have what I'm looking for, however I have never really dealt with any MSI laptops or heard much about them. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with MSI Laptops?

Asus: Just be sure you know EXACTLY what you're getting when you buy one. Even thought I have heard lots of good things about them make sure you buy one from a vendor wif a good rep. Lots of BAIT and SWITCH goin on around here...

The reason MSI stuff is cheap is because they use cheap stuff. Take that however you like.
