Summary: This is a great desktop replacement. As others have said it handles anything you can throw at it, just don't expect to do much while on the battery alone. The build quality is top notch, keyboard and display are great and even the speakers sound good for a laptop (the subwoofer helps a lot here I think). My only complaint is that it came with vanilla windows 8 installed when the advertising implied it would have win 8.1 Pro.
Pros: Great build quality, good keyboard, decent sound for a laptop and power to spare for most anything you want to run on it.
Cons: The power brick is probably larger than it really had to be. Came with Win 8 when the advertising implies it has 8.1 Pro
Summary: This wonderful piece of equipment arrived in 2 days, right on time, and in perfect condition. I love this computer. I have never had a computer this powerful, and it blows Me away every time I turn it on. Nothing chokes it or slows it down. I fully recommend this computer to anyone looking for a good gaming rig.
