Summary: This is a real good laptop. The only issue I have is that sometimes when the laptop is on battery power, the laptop will suddenly shut off completely. Then I will have to hit the power button to start it up again. I also occasionally will get the dreaded "blue screen" while uploading data to my external hard drive. But for the brand and the price, I didn't expect the world's best computer from the get-go.
Yes it can game okay, no it's not going to be like a GTX 980.

Summary: Okay, unlike some of the other reviews i've been seeing, this one will be covering it from a gaming perspective: So i've been using this laptop for about a month now and there are good arguments to buy this for gaming and arguments saying not to. PROS: - It WILL play a good amount of casual games as well as a few above casual.
Summary: has faster processor than most 500$ laptops, just needs more ram memmory to run better, but good for price, has hdmi out, usb, sd card, and a dvd player burner the only bad thing is probably windows 8 since its not touchscreen, would be nice if it came with microsoft office compatible program already installed and less unwanted programs
