Pros:

I've been looking around for a laptop replacement for about six months now. I wanted a Sandy bridge chipset along with a discrete graphics card that was good enough to play games a little bit when needed and a good enough CPU to last a few years, but the laptop also had to be small enough to move around easily too.

This MSI laptop is THE best combination of all of those factors is this price range.

I've run this laptop though CPU and GPU torture tests and there are no throttling issues unlike the Acers. MSI seems to have installed the heat sinks correctly.

The laptop does have an actual Intel wireless NIC and Bluetooth stack which is nice. The wired Realtek NIC is Gb too.

The screen is acceptable and the price is fair given the components used.

Cons:

I don't like the fact that the fan is on all of the time. Granted it's fairly quiet but none the less it's a negative in my mind. The keys seem like they could have been made a bit bigger given the room, they do feel a tiny bit small.

Other Thoughts:

I've looked at the recent Acer laptops along with other brands and all of them had tradeoffs of one form or another. (the Acers have massive throtting issues due to heat) This is still the best bet you'll find.
