    "The MSI GL62M 7RD-1407 is one of the best cheap gaming laptops I have ever bought. It was such a deal and runs all the newest games. It does get a little hot at times but nothing a laptop cooler won;t fix If you need a budget laptop for gaming, check this one out."

    "Acer unfortunately makes terrible hardware. I bought this computer a year ago and It's already crashing with memory issues. For a gaming computer, the space is very limited. Games today are at least 20 Gigs so I don't know what they were thinking. "

    "I'm just going to admit right here that I don't game. This was a computer for my son. Overall, it performed as expected. We did have to add more RAM for his needs (you can add up to 16GB). Also, if you are expecting a touch screen, think again - this doesn't have that capability. The screen size was good for gaming, but the resolution wasn't what he expected. I think this is an okay laptop, but looking around at others on the market I think that for the price you can find better ones that have more capability. "

    "For gaming I picked this up on a pretty good deal. The processor is very quick and the graphics are awesome. The sound has no issues, just wish there was a little more base. For my games it is pretty perfect though. I enjoyed the speed of loading and playing."

    "Computer started randomly shutting down. Acer had me reset the computer but it still shut down so i sent it in for repair but they made me pay the shipping. When I got it back I still had the problem. I called and they had me do some resets again and asked that I send it in for repair again. I asked to have it replaced or refunded, but they said they don't do that so I needed to send it in again. I do not recommend any Acer computers, I looked online and many Acer have this problem."

    "I think it's pretty good? It was definitely cheaper than I thought it would be. The display very bright and the plastic around it is small, so it looks even bigger. I've only used it to play a few games, and nothing that intense. What I did play worked well, but the salesperson said I should bother trying to run the newest games. So maybe it doesn't qualify as the best gaming laptop...but it is a good cheap one."

    "Great laptop right out of the box. Latest gen Intel CPU, and Nvidia GPU for a neat $599.99. I'm moving on from an 7 year old Asus so I wanted to keep my HDD from the previous laptop. Overheats during high-speed games like CS:GO and Blacklight. Great buy."

    "I have always been of the opinion that if you needed a higher performance system your money is better spent on a standard sized desktop system, however I found myself needing a higher performance system that was also mobile. In the past I've had good experiences with Dell and my needs have been more then met with this laptop,, and at a much better price then I had expected."

    "This is a decent laptop, but it does not use Intel latest 8th gen chips. That is a deal killer for me."
