Pro No need to carry around a mouse
Con Braided cable
The braided cable is stiff and may catch on the mouse pad on a regular basis.
Con Too light
The 3 weights and aluminum frame are just not heavy enough. If they were to add a weighted sled for more weight instead of 3 plugs, they could make it comfortable for a wider range of people. Satisfying both users who like light or heavy mice.
Con Finnish rubs off
The rubberized texture comes off the thumb rest and ring finger side around 2 months in. The slick plastic underneath is not a sure grip when moving around in game. Considering this is a gaming class mouse you would think they would use a textured finished material not a coating.
Con Laser sensor
The included Avago ADNS-9500 laser sensor is going to have trouble with acceleration.
Con Poor middle mouse button fail
Middle mouse button click stopped working reliably after about 2 months of negligible gaming.

Con Not good for people with thicker fingers
Depending on how worn down the trackpoint is. People with thicker fingers will often hit adjacent keys by accident.
