Pros:

This is a gorgeous laptop. I love all the specs. Very fast.

Cons:

The keyboard is a little unresponsive sometimes. Not sure if I love the Anti-glare coating. It makes the screen a little hazy.

But here is the big CON. I wanted to install a second hard drive. I looked everywhere online to find out what kind I could install. Couldn't find anything. I open it up and see it is only a mSSD slot. Which is totally fine, but I had a new SSD ready to go and I couldn't use it. :( So I get the new ADATA XM13 AXM13S2-60GM-C mSATA 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD). Install it. Now here's a curious thing. When I first installed it, the mother board made the SSD stick upward at a steep angle. Weird. I then had to burry the other end under some cables to get it to stay flat. Put it back on, and it boots up no problem.

I install the Win 7 Professional on it. Again, no problem. Then it happened. The mSSD would freeze randomly for about 30 seconds. I called both MSI and ADATA and it was finally determined it was a flaw in the Motherboard.

Other Thoughts:

Trackpad is a little touchy. But It was fine.

This model is now discontinued. :( So now I'm back on the hunt for another laptop.
