Excellent price/performance ratio...

  • Summary: Purchased 5/27, I've had adequate time to use the laptop. Be prepared for the usual gimmicks: Useless OS and bloatware. Out of the box, the laptop is blazing fast... for a while. Give it a couple hours, maybe run a DX11 benchmark or some 1080p video, it'll lock up (I know this to be true of the 17" and one other 15" model) and you'll fight the urge to break it in half with every muscle in your body.

A great piece of hardware, with some major flaws

  • Summary: I've had this computer for about 3 days, and my feelings on it went from wanting to defenestrate it, to pure love. For starters, I ordered a separate 256GB corsair solid state drive so I can have fast boot and load times for the OS and apps. Now, installing an additional hard drive in most laptops requires mostly just removing the bottom plate, but not for this laptop.
