When I had a laptop, it didn't have a numeric pad. This seems to be more standard in laptops, and it's soooo convenient to have.
I think it's pretty cool that it has such a high resolution for a 17in screen, and the fact that your fitting in that powerful of a GPU.

Yeah mine just has one in the middle of the keys that I turn on while I am typing and look at my screen to see numbers in all my sentences.
This is a good looking laptop. I really like MSIs red/black color scheme and MSI laptops in general.
