K this is what ive kind of come down to. The price doesnt really matter all that much so dont say well thats cheaper get that one. Forget about the price.

So this is what ive got going through my head. they both are almost the same laptop except the falcon is 2" bigger on the screen and only 1" wider and deeper and only about a lb heavier.

They both have the same battery life from what ive seen.

Heres my pros and cons

Falcon Northwest

Pro: bigger screen, Very nice paintjob, more usb ports, and it seems to be the same height all the way through which i kind of like better than the 1" to 1.4"

Cons: With bigger screen its wider deeper and heavier, the blu ray is only a reader not a writer.

MSI

Pros: Smaller, lighter,

Cons: i dont liket he 4 colored slots on the one side it makes it look cheap, only 2 usb slots.

So which one should i get? also which company is better to work with Xoticpc or falcon northwest? i want to know because if a part breaks what will be the easiest laptop to take apart and replace the part and anyother info please post here.

The difference isn't really much,the most noticeable difference is the HDD and its not worth to get pay $1600 more for it,so i would go for the MSI model but with that budgets,you can get lots of better laptops with better specs.

I agree, if those are your final two choices, you might as well go with the MSI. No hard drive is worth $1600, i.e. you are just paying for the name with the Falcon.
