Pros: The laptop has very good sound and the screen looks really sharp. The webcam is a lot better than my old laptops and is noticeably better through Skype. The touch keys near the monitor work very well and are a neat touch to the laptop. Ran the system through 3DMark11 and it scored a 2986, from my experience, with laptops that's pretty good. This isn't really a pro on the product but the MSI Live Update does a good job at scanning all hardware/software on the laptop and looking for new drivers

Cons: Mousepad seems to be the biggest con on the system. Need a lot of work. Tracking is fine but scrolling and tapping to click are really bad. Sometimes tapping to click jumps the mouse a good 2 inches from where it was. Scrolling is really choppy and it jumps lines it doesn't actually scroll. Though it was just a driver problem so i installed the drivers for the mousepad and made sure the device manager read the mousepad but it still remains the same.

Other Thoughts: Other's have said the screen is very flimsy and the whole construction for the laptop seems very cheap. The screen is not flimsy and does not show any more flex than any other laptop i've worked with. The rest of the construction does not seem cheap, it's true is almost all plastic but holds up fine in my opinion.
