-Sexy and sleek gaming rig that can dual as a professional work machine.
-Steelseries keyboard is excellent. Comfortable and the LED lighting is a nice touch.
-Fast boot times. As others have said, in the 5-7 second range
-Impressive performance with gaming and work.
-The touchpad has a steep learning curve, but it was okay once I got a handle on things. That is, until it stopped working altogether. It works on the log in screen for windows, but once my password is entered, everything disappears. I tried searching for a driver update, but was unable to find anything on MSI's website. Slightly disappointing, as this is my primary work machine, and it's not always convenient for me to carry a wireless mouse. Hoping this gets resolved quickly.
-As others have mentioned, the power cord can get in the way of the cooling vent which gets very warm. I have to bend the cable in a way that it doesn't restrict airflow, but it's not really a problem. Just wish I didn't have to worry about it.
-The plastic tab that covers my webcam is slightly crooked, and I can't seem to slide it straight. Every time I look up and see light reflecting off of it, I just see this crooked piece of plastic. It's a shame because everything else about this machine is gorgeous.
All in all, you won't be disappointed. This machine doesn't compromise on much, and its short comings are far outweighed by everything else. Just buy it!
