Summary: I purchased this product after reviewing many different manufacturers and models. For the price, this was the most powerful notebook available. At $1150 (after $100 rebate) the competitors were around $1600-$2000. Pros: price, very powerful, solid build, nice design. Cons: Repeated BSOD, heavy when carried with the A/C adapter, runs hot (although these are normal temperatures for this type of graphics card).
