just one more thing : the only thing i'm searching now, is how to get keyboard led management on Jessie (just for the cool stuff, red/green/blue light under keyboard).

i'll post there when i'll find it, but if you have any clue, it'll be a pleasure…

Hi folks,
i've purchased this msi gt60 and installed a dual boot on this machine : i wanted to keep windows for gaming purpose and Debian Linux to work seriouslu with it.
That is why i made i dual boot with both Windows 7 ultimate and Debian Jessie.
I first tried to install wheezy but if i wanted to get the best graphic card improvement, i had to get jessie installed (which is a marvelous OS by the way).
Everything is working perfectly well.
I decided to add a ssd hdd for the system, and let the sata for the data.
As you have two bays for hdd, it's a great deal.
With Debian Jessie, you will have no probleme with graphic cards detection and tweaking.
That is a great notebook, and you will have great pleasure with coding, virtualizing or playing, so smoothly ! I recommend it, and advise you to use Debian Jessie.
