Advantages: Simple to use, looks good and has windows 7 (FREE MICROSOFT STARTER)
Disadvantages: 3 cell battery only lasts for 1.5 hrs MAX!
I have had my MSI for around a year now and honestly I have to say there are good and bad points.
Its undeniable that this note book has a modern and cute look (I particularly like the baby pink), and the inside (white) reminds me a little of a chunkier mac.
The keys are really easy to use and the directional pad is well positioned so that it is convenient and not too close to the keys. It looks really stylish and is not too bulky, nor is it slim enough to crack or break if it gets the tiniest bump.
It is so simple to use and perfect for a first time user (even kids). It has an operating system of windows 7 - which includes a type of microsoft word (starter), which gives you the ability to create, read and edit word documents, bonus! :)
But there is one flaw which is very clear. I take this note book to class and lectures, but there is a very short battery life on this. My three cell only lasts for around and hour and a half, and it is a nightmare to find somewhere to charge it.
So unless you don't plan on taking this out too often, or need to use it for too long, or plan on investing in a larger battery then this is a major factor to take into account.
But if you are willing to pay the extra (you buy the batteries online) then this is a great computer for anyone, from first time users to experienced computer owners.
Summary: Overall pretty good, would be a 5* if the battery lasted longer.
