Pros: As a high end desktop replacement laptop that doubles as a solid gaming machine this does everything I bought it for with (almost) no problems, and does it all well (almost.)

Cons: As others have reported, the keyboard layout is a bit odd and takes some getting used to, especially if you are used to a full size keyboard.
Also as some have reported, (and the real reason it lost a rating point,) while it isn't a problem with most applications, sometimes, (particluarly in some IM/chat apps,) the keyboard doesn's seem to pick up keystorkes very well. Sometimes every third or fourth keystroke is missed unless you stop and hold the key down, pressing very hard, for nearly a second. This leads to some frustrating editing. I really didn't notice it for most of whatI do, including normal text editing, email, etc, but in some applications the keyboard borders on unuable. Lucky for me I don't use IM much. This is obviously more of an application or driver issue than a hardward thing, but I don't have problems with the same apps on other computers.
