the Windows function key has been repositioned to the right side to reduce the possibility of accidentally striking it when you’re surrounded by bad guys
Or.. they could have added another button near the LED indicators (near the drive activity etc..) that disables the Windows key..

Like my aging Logitech G15 keyboard. lol.

Nope, it doubles your capacity as well. RAID1 halves your total storage since 1 drive is being used for redundancy.

Because you can. Does one need any other reason?

No, RAID 0 doesn't change storage capacity. It's the only type of RAID that storage remains the same as the combined size of all storage drives. It's focus is solely performance, it doesn't have any kind of redundancy or error checking.

It doesn't double the capacity of the storage drives. The size of the RAID 0 array is the same as the combined sized of the storage drives used in the array.

I've been looking for 6lb 15" 1080p laptops w/ 4 memory slots so I can run Virtual Machines on it and do development...you know how many I found? Zippo :p

They're all either 8-9lb gaming laptops that have been blinged up, or have really low resolution screens or only have 2 slots :p

MSI rocks! I've had one for 5 years and the best gaming machine I've ever used. Fastest computer I ever used also...boots in seconds. I'l be trading the old one in on this one in January.

Video editing or Cad drawing easily require more than 16 GB, so depending on your needs, 32 GB of possible ram makes this machine pretty versatile.
