    Please state any additional features you need. It's also helpful if you can indicate how experienced you are with computers. If you're a novice and don't know much, that's alright. Everyone's a novice at some point.

    I used to have old-school alienware laptops with their big keyboard travel. I'm not really a fan of lot of these new chic-let keyboards with no travel. I type A LOT and need decent amount of keyboard travel. I also seek a good screen as I would be watching media and prefer to have eyegasms!

    Thank you

    It's one of the sexiest laptops out there, unique and elegant at the same time.

    It’s a nice looking machine. I have one preordered from hidevolution myself, and I agree from what you posted it will fit your needs as well.

    Yes. I have actually seen the Aero 15x keyboard and touched it and typed on it. I would definitely want something way better than the Aero 15x keyboard.

    As for the P65, are there any current MSI laptops with the same keyboard so I can find it and give it a try?

    Get either the Eluktronics Mech G2 (has a mechanical keyboard) or get an MSI GS65. The P65 is just a GS65 with a fingerprint reader and in silver. You can get a GS65 with a gtx 1060 and a 144Hz display for $1800.
