High end games work perfectly. CPU was cool through games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Baldur's Gate 3.
Had to reset my windows because Windows Store got bugged and couldn't be downloaded. This meant I was missing some basic programs like Notepad, Calculator and Snipping Tool which also couldn't be downloaded without Windows Store.
Most computers I buy always end up with some starting issues so quite honestly this is one of the better ones and, along with testing it for a week now, I am quite satisfied with it. 4.5 / 5 Stars.

Truly incredible performance out of the box. The 13NUE-450US more than tripled the FPS (on MAX settings!) we used to see on our 3-yo gaming laptop. Not only that the Aegis was doing it with ease - GPU barely got above 50 C and the 13th Gen i7 1was hardly being pushed in terms of load %. Whether at idle or in the middle of gaming, the fans were quiet and we barely noticed a change in speed.
After just ONE day the CPU went nuts - in the middle of a download (NO other apps running, just Epic Games launcher downloading FIFA via EA partner apps) the machine's fans suddenly started blasting. From then on CPU load would hit 100% during the simplest task (loading a webpage, downloading or transferring a file, etc) and the clock speed was at max. Also noticed that windows power plans stopped working properly - even in Power Saving mode with Max Processor state set to 99/90/50% the CPU was constantly glued to max turbo boost speed. Worst of all it performed like a dog - our games became virtually unplayable.
IF this machine kept working properly our rating would be 5/5 +++. We were blown away with the power and moreso the relative ease it ran our games (on max). Compared to a gaming laptop this monster barely broke a sweat. I have to give it a 1/5 because it became practically useless after the the first day. I know Windows can be an awful OS; was it that? This was our first MSI product and as tempted as I am to try picking up another unit I'm not sure I'll take the chance. Should consider a custom build from Mem Express.
