Summary: The laptop is good for gaming when the games are optimized but the main issue is overheating there is only one vent. Idle temp is around 78c which is 150f or so. now while gaming is alot more then that. 8gb of ram isn't enough but it can be upgraded to 16gb 1600mhz ddr3. overall with a good cooling pad and some upgrades this is a good mid level gaming laptop.
This is a fantastic laptop that I know will serve me for years.

Summary: This is a fantastic laptop. For the price, speed, graphics quality, and performance are incredible. This would hands-down be a 5/5 if it wasn't for what seems to be a wee bit of a glitchy WiFi adapter, but that seems to be a trend so I'm not too worried about it.
