i've had the g53s for a while. not impressed. it plays games well and if you never move it or power it off, great. otherwise, forget trying to open it up to add a hard drive (you have to totally dismantle it with thin little keyboard ribon cables) and then you have to special order a 2nd hard drive caddy.

I have found the X8R002 doesn't do 5ghz like the rest of ALL of my devices leaving my "performance" laptop stuck in 2.4ghz G land.

Sometimes if it has been off a bit, the display wont light up - no reason, no beaps, nothing -like the video card is totally absent. reboots gallor and after about 45 minutes it works again - this has happened no less than 5 times.

I've been a Dell XPS guy up till this laptop - and i'll be going back to Dell after

I would say, go for the MSI :)  better GPU and the same CPU, and you don't need 1,5 TB disk spade on a laptop :)  In my opinion
