Pros Awesome 17.3" display
Fast processor with plenty of RAM
Not loaded with bloat like all the other laptops I've owned
Face recognition software to log in, instead of password or fingerprint reader
Best sound sytem on a laptop I've ever seen. THX Surrou
Cons The only con I can find with this laptop is the DVD/CD drive is a little flimsy, but it works well.
Summary This is by far the best laptop I have ever owned! You won't find a better laptop for under a thousand bucks anywhere. Now, onto the review:
For under 800 bucks, this laptop comes loaded. Another great thing about this laptop was the lack of bloat. Only a couple of programs that needed to be removed and that was it! This laptop is extremely fast and the screen and sound are incredible. I use my laptop mainly for word processing, photo/video editing, browsing the web, etc. and the FX720 handles them all with ease. The multitasking this thing can handle will amaze you.
I would have never thought you could replicate true surround sound on a laptop, but MSI has done it perfectly.
Like I said, I'm not really a hard core gamer, but from reviews I've read from others this thing can handle almost any game you throw at it.
Overall, this laptop is an absolute steal for around 800 dollars (well worth $1400 imo) and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. The keyboard is the perfect size and very quiet, and having a number pad is great! After having owned 3 previous 15.6 inch laptops, you'll be amazed at how much difference an extra couple inches does! It's also light enough at 6.6lbs, to take anywhere.
If you're looking for a low high end laptop (or upper mid-range, however you want to look at it), you can't go wrong with the MSI FX720-001. I promise you will be impressed!
