Anyone experienced with the MSI X460DX? If not, with MSI laptops?

It is by far the cheapest I can find (in Australia) that is more or less exactly what I'm looking for, that being a highly portable (for university purposes) laptop with somewhat decent gaming capabilities.

So a few questions...

1) (Skip this if you've never used a X460DX, obviously) Is the X460DX of a good build quality and reliability? I've read that the touchpad can get quite hot when gaming, but that doesn't really concern me as long as this isn't doing any long-term damage to the laptop. Are there other things I should be aware of?

2) What is MSI's general laptop quality reputation like? I'd never even heard of them before recently.

3) Am I right in thinking the GT540M (aka GT630M) shouldn't have too much trouble playing practically all games, even if that means playing at low-mid settings for some demanding games like Skyrim? Especially seeing as this laptop maxes out at 1366x768.

Thanks for any help.

Bump.

Anyone? Even just telling me about MSI's reputation would be helpful. Are they known for making decent laptops?
