Did some cursory research on this and there seems to be a lot of people reporting issues with faulty hardware (bad WiFi cards, fans breaking, etc.).

I wasn't impressed with my recent MSI laptop. It had terrible battery life because of a bug in the switchable graphics driver. Long story short, if the drivers were ever upgraded then 1 CPU core would have high usage unless GPU was disabled. So you either had to A) have multi year old driver since MSI only provided one driver at launch or B) upgrade, have crappy battery/thermals, and have updated NVidia drivers. I did find others complain about the same issue so I wasn't a fluke unfortunately.

Doesn't shock me to hear that this laptop would have QC issues too. It's a shame because this could've been a decent laptop with good value in a useful form factor.
