Decent gaming laptop with heating issues.

CoolKatBranden, Amazon
11 November 2014
  • Summary: This particular laptop has heating issues, which is to be expected with dual graphic cards. The battery is also limited because of this. If you're looking for a gaming laptop, this is pretty good, but you should probably go with something more modern for a similar price.

Driver Calamity

SoloPopo "SoPo", Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: Beware of potential driver frustrations. The laptop comes with Windows 8, and cannot be downgraded if you want all of the hardware to work (specifically SLI). SLI does not work with Windows 8.1. The mic, and SLI, are extremely finicky and the Nvidia drivers are inconsistent.

Excellent product

  • Summary: Great relationship between price and performance. I strongly recommend this laptop if you are looking a high performance laptop to play video games and you dont want to spend more than US$1200. The only con with this machine is the trackpad, which has some issues.
