    These are very good laptops to be fair for the price, OK they are not the best in the world but they work well. I did manage to get my hands on the MSI CX61 2QF via ebuyer for only £499.98 with free delivery.

    I actually use the Acer Aspire V5-572G and got to admit that is very cheap considering i paid like £650 when i first bought mine. I would very much lve a cool MSI but i have had not problems playing online gaming on this Acer.
