Pros: I really like just about everything about this laptop. It has been a great machine for everyday use and gaming. Plays Skyrim at 100 FPS. Decent battery life given the amount of technology in the device. Monitor is absolutely amazing. Plays awesome video!
Cons: Could have used a better fan/heat-sink. Gets hot quick and stays hot for a while seeing how the whole thing is an aluminum case. Keyboard could have been a better contrast color for being back-lit. Hard to see the white on silver keys. 8x DVD drive? Really? Could have used a better swipe mouse. If they were trying to make it more like a Macbook Pro. They should have used the same style of mouse pad. DVD drive is very noisy and is a slight hassle sometimes since its not a conventional style drive.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great laptop. The cons aren't life hastling or anything. Has been a very solid great machine. Survived any falls and knock off the bed situations as well. No discolorations or anything to the monitor.

Pros: Thin profile
Cons: Can't contol backlit keyboard to stay on all the time. It turns off after 15seconds and comes on when touched again.
Other Thoughts: Overall, a great machine. Beautiful, bright, clean screen. Just wish it had blu-ray to go with it. A pleasure to use with its fast processor. Needs a platform under it to let it breathe. Not heavy, but not terribly lightweight, either.

Costliest Piece of Junk
Pros: I went for the best configuration thinking it is a Dell machine. But could not even used this for more than 4 hours.
Cons: After four hours of operation this machine crashed with a blue screen and since than I am not been able to start this machine. Contacted Dell Service and as per them they can only service this laptop and when checked with newegg for refund, found out that this machine can not be returned and can be replaced only. Even after spending $1200/- on a so called top of the line. This is apiece of junk I bought which I can not even return or exchanged with a different model. From now onwards no more DELL machines.
