Summary: Okay now I know this review comes in a little late, but I just picked up one of these bad boys and I am pretty computer/techno savvy so I thought I would share my thoughts. Current systems I own MacPro 13”, 24” iMac, 27” 3 custom built PCs, Motorola Xoom 10”, Samsung Galaxy S4, Xbox 360, PS3. So I feel it’s safe to say I have some experience with most systems. I picked up this laptop used in excellent condition and very clean.
Summary: I'm a hardcore gamer that is constantly on the move, so I needed a laptop that could keep up when my old laptop died. I've had problems with Dell PCs in the past, but I decided to give this laptop a shot because of all the really cool features it had. It was completely worth it! I love how you can customize all the lights on the laptop. Everything is simple and easy! Wherever I go with this laptop I get comments on how cool it looks.
Summary: If you want portability, look elsewhere. At 10.6 lbs, this thing is a cinder block. With that being said, I have NEVER owned a more powerful laptop, period. This is worth literally twice what I paid for it, and I couldn't build a more powerful DESKTOP for this price either. 1200P screen, twin GTX280m video cards, and the AlienFX is really slick when games take control of it. All for sub $400. No brainer.
Summary: I got this laptop to replace my desktop computer and to commute. My only complaint is the weight. It is a heavy laptop and therefore, not the best commuter laptop. It does everything my desktop ever did. Great graphics and is lightening fast. The HD screen is incredible. It is expensive.
Summary: mmm, What can I say about my purchase of the M17XR4? It is just simply brilliant, I love the way it looks, its features and the way it performs. The speed on it delivery from the USA to Australia is incredible and is the best computer I've ever worked on. There is nothing about the M17XR4 that I don't like, for me it's money worth spent.
