    why can MSI make sweet looking M/B's etc but there laptops are so dog ugly. This ones a step in the right direction for a more clean look along the lines of G73 ROG Asus laptops but still dog ugly.

    I agree Denis, it is a step in the right direction. I think a bit more minimalist would be better. Cleaner lines and perhaps not such a bright red for the detailing.

    If I had £1400 to spend on a laptop (I don't) and was unhappy with my current one (I am happy), this would be a strong contender.

    It seems to be on par with AlienWare systems (especially now Dell are involved). I digress.


    The major concerns I have are:
    • The crapware - new install, without question. However, no laptop I've ever had has survived this test.
    • Raid 0: sure it's faster, but why not just use one SSD and one 750GB? (A: more expensive.)
    • Backlighting should be standard at that entry price.

    S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
