Nvidia 10 series is next lvl
So, very fast shipping. Gone are the days of waiting months for a laptop. Took like 4 days. I play skyrim modded out maxed out and the 1070 doesn't even blink. I also downloaded the Witcher 3 just to see how it handled and I never lost 60FPS in the game maxed out. My Temps are average under 60 degrees C on gpu and CPU. Rainbow six However keeps pushing my CPU into the 70s and I can't figure that one out.

Great laptop worth the money only 2k? It's a steal imo. It's a fingerprint magnet if you have dirty fingers hard to keep clean but Meh. The keyboard colors can sometimes seem lack luster but other color combinations really shine. I love it and I'll always go Xoticpc. This is my second laptop from them.

Better than expected, good service, excellent work Xoticpc
As my first laptop ever purchased I'm glad it was ordered from Xoticpc. This performed better than I expected than I expected with little issues. A quick visit to MSI website and a few drivers later and it functions perfectly. Based on my customization choices the price felt reasonable. This laptop will be enjoyed used for many years to come. Xoticpc may be my go to place for gaming equipment and accessories.

To beat the heat, get a Titan.
The product is really good. It is working quite well with the latest games.

Great laptop all around for both gaming and productivity.
Awesome for a mobile gamer
Review by jeremias / (Posted on 6/1/2017)
Satisfied (almost)
I am currently extremely busy with work and have been unable to play some of the great games I'll be playing this winter when time allows, but so far I am very impressed with XoticPC's service and commitment to keeping their promises.
The speed with which I received my Titan was astounding. And they gave almost a minute by minute update as to the status of my order.
I'm sure when I'm able to actually play some of the hot new games it will handle them easily.
One complaint: The game codes that were promised to me did not work, for one reason or another. In one case the final web page before I can download the game, it says Fire Fox can't understand the address. In the other case it says, thanks and you can download in November!
I don't hold Exotic completely responsible for this, and when I have more time I'll probably be able to figure it out.
Review by Dean / (Posted on 5/28/2017)
Great laptop, great service
It's a great system. XOTICPC did a great job configuring it and was faster than they said they would be. However, for ordinary use, not modern games, running it at 4k causes some menus to be unreadably small. No Windows 10 settings corrected that. So when I'm not playing a game that runs well at 4k I have it set to 1080p, which solves the unreadable menu problem.

I have no complaints so far
Review by Tyler / (Posted on 5/23/2017)
Great laptop, great service
XOTICPC did an excellent job of building and loading the MSI laptop. The laptop itself is also excellent. It is fast and does everything I want. I would say that some older applications I run do not display on the 4k monitor. For normal everyday usage I set the monitor to 1080p and all the apps run fine. If I have a game that I want to run at 4k I'll just reset the resolution to 4k. This laptop is a rocket ship

It's ok
It looks nice not as fast as I wanted
Review by Rip / (Posted on 5/10/2017)
Excellent XOTIC Service and an Amazing MSI Laptop
Excellent air flow and cooling for 7th gen processor. Can easily overclock to 4.2 GHz with IC Diamond paste. The monitor had no light bleed and compared to the ASUS G752VSk, this is a better buy.
