Summary: Desktop performance in a mobile form factor. I really cant say enough about this laptop. I also have a custom desktop that I personally built myself, unfortunately I built it just about a month previous to the swell of newer generation of graphics cards released.
Summary: nice laptop if you don't travel with it much. I use it to work in our living-room or bedroom. The ram dying is annoying but otherwise Im happy with it. Took off the 1 egg for that.
Pros: Fast. Handles games like Tera online without issue on max settings. I used to hate laptops because they are not as powerful as desktops but now this is all I use. Its heavy and feels more like a portable desktop. The instant on feature is nice.
Cons: 2 sticks of ram just died. been about 11 months. Computer would not post and could not get to bios. had to take out 1 component at a time to find it was the memory. Windows 8 blows. Not many computers come with windows 7 anymore though.
Summary: This laptop has exceeded my expectations in terms of performance and functionality. I've purposely tried to push the limits (running multiple resource-heavy programs), and I haven't seen a significant drop in performance! Great buy!
Pros: Fast! Love the SDD/HDD combo! This thing runs any game I've installed on Ultra without any issues. It's also great for media production - Adobe Creative Suite runs great on this machine - render times for video editing are significantly faster than any of my older machines. I am extremely pleased...
Cons: Heavy and large - not easily portable - but i'm not running all over town with this thing. Windows 8.1 took some getting used to - but that has nothing to do with the hardware.
Summary: A absolutely beautiful machine from the moment you turn it on. Quiet fans, never shows signs of struggle multitasking beast and your games can be ran at high graphics without the fans getting loud or anything. Easy to maintain, the interior is extremely easy to get to and clean and/or add parts.
Summary: the laptop came with a outdated version of windows 8.0 and the backlit didnt work (were still trying to figure that out) i could not upgrade to windows 8.1 because of the outdated system (also trying to figure THAT out) i could not download java or connect to my microsoft account (im trying to fix...
Summary: Looks great works well and runs most games on max/medium settings, but not ALL of'em, which is something i expected off of it. Its 3D mark score was relatively low in its segment as well and it didnt reach the gaming PC benchmark. However.
Summary: I purchased this model because it was the cheapest model that had the CPU and GPU combination I wanted. I upgraded the hard drives, optical drive, and RAM immediately. This machine is an excellent desktop replacement laptop.
Summary: I have owned this for a number of months now and I absolutely love it, everything I throw at it can be played in max settings, everything from Everquest 2 on 'extreme quality' right up to the yet-to-be-released Elder Scrolls Online, Maximum settings, maximum quality, runs sweet as.
