Pros: I imagine if you had one that worked you'd be pleased with most of it

Cons: Heavy and unreliable. See below

Other Thoughts: I spent $1,700 on this laptop about a year ago. It mostly sat on my shelf for the first 6 months until Diablo III came out. I'll be generous and say I logged between 48-72 hours on the machine before one night I put it to sleep. When I brought it back up it BSOD and from there would continually restart without ever loading windows to completion. I tried everything I could, even wiping the raid drives clean and trying to re-install windows, but it would never load the windows files. Bitter that I had to send back my large purchase with such little use, I contacted MSI who gave me an RMA number to mail it back to them. I was in luck (sarcasm), on top of my $1,700 I also got to pay $70 to ship it back to them. The turn around was quick, about a day or two after they received it I got a tracking number for it coming back my way. When I received it back it was obviously a different laptop, which is fine except for two things: it won't load a webpage in under 3 minutes, and the "warranty void if seal broken" sticker on the bottom is broken... So, I guess there goes my warranty?? In any case, what can I do now? Contact MSI again and pay ANOTHER $70 to ship it back to them??? IF they'll take it given the fact that this seal is broken? To say the least, $1,700 is a LOT of money to most people to spend on a laptop. I can't say I've ever been more upset/angry/homicidal over a purchase before in my life. Buyer beware.
