The ONE glaring flaw that I see is: no illuminated keyboard. Gamers like to play in the dark, I know I do. Come on MSI, what would that have cost? I hate to have to plug my Logitech G15 into this laptop.
After many hours of research, I can't find a better gaming laptop, even for $1K more.
If you want to spend more money for more performance, custom laptop sites will customize this laptop, for example they will install 2x SSD hard drives (for like $400 additional). Beware though, of leaving the comfort and safety of the #1 internet retailer, Newegg.
