MSI Laptop GT Series GT683DXR-603US Intel Core i7 2nd Gen 2670QM (2.20 GHz) 12 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570M 15.6

Pros: Great specifications, great performance, great warranty, quality MSI product.

Laptop flies; a true desktop replacement. Form factor and design, imo, are nice. Arguments over keyboard flex are overly inaccurate. Slight keyboard flex, but expected w/ a laptop. If you slam your keys, you probably will notice it.

Sound is great, graphics are great. Raid 0 boot times average about 47 seconds. Swapped an SSD and I am getting average of 17 second boot times.

My windows rating w/ the SSD is 7.4, which is amazing for a laptop.

If you quantify performance/$ base, this really hits the sweet spot.

Complaints about the mouse pad are true, ONLY, if you decide to use a finger other than your pointer (strange, I know). If you use your pointer finger, it seems to be accurate and responsive.

Playing SWTOR on max settings with an average of 50 FPS.

This laptop with Turbo Mode runs equivalent to a 560 TI.

Great value imo.

Cons: No caps lock indicator on keyboard (big deal!). MSI put in a software fix available on their drivers web site that notifies you when the capslock button has been pressed.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a laptop that is up-gradable, that will last you a good while. A laptop that will hit the sweet spot of value vs money vs shelf life; this is the sweet spot as of this date (1/29/12).
