What We Don’t Like
Lack of storage

Even though the laptop offers a 1080p (1920×1080) resolution display but for some reason, the viewing experience is not that great.
MSI made one of a kind laptop with this one. This comes with a 2-year carry-in warranty from MSI covering any defects (physical damages are not covered under warranty). The specifications of this laptop at this price along with the free software are amazing. This is a good value for money and worth buying it. You won’t have any complaints regarding this laptop.
