Summary: After holding on to this for a full year, I'm still satisfied with this laptop. It doesn't overheat excessively unless playing a higherend game on higher graphics settings. However it is a laptop. That's bound to happen.
Pros: This laptop is a gaming powerhouse, the system runs almost any game on max graphics smooth as silk when plugged in. This laptop pulled a J.esus on me. I spilled a large cup of water on it, it died for a few days, and literally resurrected a few days later. I dropped it down a flight of stairs too...
Cons: No cons, this computer is freaking AWESOME!!!!
Summary: This is the second time I have purchased this laptop. I had an older version of it a few years ago. I ruinied it working in Saudi Arabia from the dust that gets into everything but I really liked it. It is really big and heavy but since I use it as a desktop replacement it isn't an issue.
Shipped almost instantly and is way beyond expectations

Summary: This machine actually makes Windows with Norton Internet running completely usable! It shipped with Windows 7 Pro (and thank you very much for that) and not Windows 8. The gaming mouse is awesome too. I can not say enough about how great this thing works and how awesome are the graphics.
