Strengths of the product
I have been using the GS65 for both work and play for a bit over a week now. Im surely impressed by both the speed and usability of this laptop. The keyboard has just enough response to make typing a smooth experience and although some may be hesitant about the missing num pad i can honestly say it is a god send. - Great keyboard RGB defaults and intuitive customization - Great hardware management with the Dragon Center app. - Despite how thin this computer is it stay between 75 ~ 89° C while gaming and very cool using it for tasks like text editing, photoshop , etc - Sexy packaging - Excellent style, allowing you to game and take this into the office without worrying about the big bulky flash of most laptops. - new 8th gen processor is great for games and handle professional task easily. - i am a programmer first and gamer second so the extra ram in this model allows me to run my Virtual machines required for work all with significant resources.

Weaknesses of the product
- Runs kind of hot playing games like Black Ops 4 - Fans are quite loud sometimes even when not under load - Some pre-installed Apps started failing such as the MSI remind App - Finger prints show up quite well on the laptop, although easy to clean with the included cloth - NOT ENOUGH STORAGE - Ability to upgrade the computer is not user friendly IE adding more space Via SSD
In conclusion this laptop is exactly what i wanted. It meets all of my expectations and is great for my line of work (Programming/ Web development). The extra RAM for me in particular is a god send although there is not enough space of the SSD to keep you satisfied before needing to upgrade. If you can, leverage cloud storage or upgrade the space to a bigger drive. Would have liked to have a bit more promotional items included for the premium price other than Fortnite (i did get Black ops 4 for free as well). Works awesome for new game titles and overall feels like a very premium stylish device you can take to a LAN party or into meetings. Keyboard is the best i have used on a laptop, great screen space considering the size and virtually no bezels. The IPS monitor is super sharp almost as slick as the Macbook Pro displays. All in all I just love it. I was at first looking at the limited edition P65 Creator but this computer had the exact same specs as the more expensive p65 laptop. so keep that in mind!
