I doubt Linus will see this, so could someone please help me out w my question? I was hoping to pick up one of these bc my friend has one and says it works like a charm. However after watching this and seeing the preloaded crap, I was wondering if there is a simple way to remove all the shit like a toggle?

I have an msi gt73vr and i kept trying antiviruses and searhing google trying to find the cause of my 100% cpu usage at idle….until I watched this video. Godammit msi

TheMrLBC says:

MSI should make some sort of detachable logo, or make it a sticker, with a more grown up logo behind, so the sticker is addon. No grown up person would buy one of these with that hidious red logo. Destroys an otherwise great looking laptop.
