Pros: LED back-lit screen, scratch resistant finish, chicklet keyboard, i5, DDR3. This laptop is FAST!
Other Thoughts: Upgraded internal hard drive to a 320GB WD Scorpio Black 7200RPM, upgraded Windows 7 to 64bit to take advantage of all 4GB of DDR3. Cold boots in 32 seconds!!!

Pros: light weight, LED Backlit screen, runs quite and very cool
Cons: Very large and fragile back panel. Have to take out a million screws and then bend it just right to pop the clips. If you pull too hard they will break. Glossy screen isn't great for being out in the sun with, but the LED backlighting really helps. Only 1 USB port on the side. The other two are in the back. Shiny everything, so its a fingerprint magnet.
Other Thoughts: I bought one for doing work stuff on and liked it so much I went back and bought another. The i5 is a great chip. Very fast and have yet to figure out how to max out all of the threads. As if it wasn't fast enough, I dropped in a 64MB SSD and it really made a big difference. Running win7 Ultimate and it takes about 15 secs from power on to up and running.

Pros: Excellent laptop! Great price (i5 laptops now just being released, this is the lowest priced by a fair amount), not much bloatware. I've been through numerous laptops in the past 20 years, and I trust in MSI products. Good power and looks, although I could live without the glossy finish prevalent in today's laptops.
Cons: I have several nitpicks, but neither of them will knock off the 5-star rating.
Other Thoughts: Not working with Kingston SSDNOW V+ 128. I've been back and forth with Kingston, but as of this writing the two just aren't compatible.
