Pros: I was torn between getting this laptop and the ASUS G50VT-X6. It was a really tough decision, but I decided to go with this one since I like the design and look of the MSI better. Also, the ASUS wouldn't have fit in my back pack since the dimensions of it are closer to a 16'' or 17'' due to them expanding the border/casing of the laptop.
When all is said and done, this laptop just looks and feels like a work of art. It runs everything very fast and smoothly; my games have never looked or played better.
Another thing worth mentioning is newegg's delivery service. I ordered this laptop Wednesday afternoon and it was at my house Thursday afternoon; it got to my doorstep within a 24 hour time period! Now that's quick!
Cons: Only one slight con. This comes with 32 bit Vista so it can't utilize that extra gig of ram that this laptop has. I plan on upgrading this to Windows 7 when it's officially released (possibly the 64 bit version, but only if Cisco fixes the compatibility issue with the VPN client, oy).
I may/not have more cons after using this a bit more. I highly doubt it, but we'll see what happens.
Other Thoughts: I took the advice of the previous buyer and adjusted the Turbo button to overclock the processor speed from 15% to 20%. I may consider "flashing" the video card, but I may not need to.
All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and especially happy with the speed at which this laptop was delivered to my house. Thanks, newegg!
