Summary: Powerful laptop, but screen resolution is low. For the price, this a power laptop for video production and gaming. However, it's best to connect it to a bigger high resolution screen. I believe the resolution is lower because it is a touch screen (which I totally love!).
The backlit keyboard is a nice touch separating this model from the other models in ...

Summary: (Update as of 5/21/2015: Original laptop was exchanged for a different but same model due to two reasons: 1) the UP key never 'settled' and continue to pop off, and 2) the speakers goes in and out intermittently without any obvious reasons.
The touchpad is not the best, the rest is awesome!

Summary: For the price, probably the best laptop out there. I removed windows 8 and installed xubuntu 14.04 and had no issues. The touch pad is a bit of a disappointment especially when it comes to the right & left buttons.

Summary: It took me a lot of extensive search/research. In this price range, it is rare to find a laptop with an i7 processor with a dedicated graphic card(NOT usual built-in Intel HD graphics). A good deal of gaming can be done on this spec.
Summary: If youre looking for a new laptop, dont look at any other, its a no brainer that this is an ideal laptop, has discrete graphics, bluetooth, and only 30 usd more than the simple version http://amzn.to/POvKGV.
Summary: I did not like the speakers being placed on the bottom of the laptop. I have been really impressed overall with this laptop. I got it to mainly do schoolwork on it and it has worked great. I have also played a few games here and there and the quality has been great!
Summary: Bought this as a budget gaming laptop as a mobile counterpart for my high-end desktop, performs much better than I expected for games and although it can't run them on high detail settings, seems to handle every game I've thrown at it (as of April 2014).
Summary: For the price I think this one of the best spec-ed notebooks on the market. Good processor, a great graphics card, large HDD and a free mSATA slot (can be used to install an SSD alongside with the HDD) inside! Not sure about the screen resolution.
