Another user who runs their notebook on battery frequently would have noticed a problem years before me and needed to replace it. I had another dell once upon a time that had a li-ion battery and it was still good for at least 1 hour unplugged use at 5yrs old. I have a samsung tablet here that I had to replace the li-po battery on at 4yrs of age because it did the same as above pics. Oversized orders that require delivery by truck do not qualify. That battery was purchased from samsung.
Lastly, I am 100% open to being incorrect about this machine being pre-loaded with malware, though an anti-malware scan was performed to engaging in any type of regular use, which leads me to believe that this is indeed suspicious and deserves further review. Linux is awsome and runs great, at least my versions Mint 18. The hinge issue can be dealt with if you close the lid with some care. Before deciding to buy any Msi Computer, make sure you research and read carefully the buying guide somewhere else from trusted sources. One coupon redeemable per item per customer. As I wrote earlier, I think the battery is usually only covered for one year even if the rest of the notebook is covered for two years. A simple legacy mode question.
I really like this laptop, and don't really need or have coins to replace it at this time. Is there anything that could have been done differently to avoid this? It didn't even make it to the end of the operating systems life, W7. The first few days I didn't have much time to figure things out so I was unhappy with the image quality and color. While we love a lot of the company's gaming notebooks and workstations, few of them earned Editors' Choice awards. I'd begin with the seller who has been in business the longest. You may to know what we have achieved so far. Because Firefox does the color management properly whereas Chrome kind of drops the color profile at times and one has to move the mouse back in there to get things going nicely.
While there is a warranty through msi, prepare to wait a month+ to get the laptop back. It is an amazing machine, provided you tune it properly. The onboard software packed with this is very nice and limited. As for your expectations about battery life, they don't seem realistic. Coupons are subject to change without notice.
We know your feelings because we used to be in this weird situation when searching for Msi Computer. With this monitor being so new, I understand proper reviews are scarce. Which is important to me, a linux only user. When running blur busters, i had practically no ghosting. I have bought two of these for my office and have been happy.
But you should check, yourself. I've only cycled the battery 2-5 times total in the 2 yrs I've had this laptop. To simulate how this feels on your current monitor, open a game and drop the resolution down one or two options. The Gaming Plus, so far, has worked out perfectly. Also remember that your battery is a unique case. Connecting an external audio system and there you can experience really great quality.
So you need to buy a battery whose cells were recently manufactured within the past 6 months or less but very few sellers will provide the manufacture date. Since battery degradation is usually slow, it didn't become a problem for me until it was fairly major. However it is pretty much unnoticeable in day to day use. Battery is indeed out of warranty. This can be solved, and should be. If not, post a question and ill try to help out as best as I can. This may send you to some funny spaces since color management in browsers is quite a thing.
I've never dropped it, and I don't run the battery thru a full cycle ever run until completely discharged, then charge to full, repeat. Also, this laptop is lighter and thinner on top of that. Usually only unplug long enough to go from desk to family room tv, or to car for use as code reader. Being equipped with only nvidia gpu's at the time, i am unable to give feedback on its performance. I find that it falls between great performance for gaming and quality for everyday use, without stressing your pc. So for starters, this is a very nice entry to the gaming monitor world.
