Maybe slightly outdated now but still a gem. Depending on the price buy it.
PLM Again, Amazon

Summary: I have owned this laptop for 18 months. It still works great and runs Diablo 3 and Minecraft with ease. As with most gaming oriented laptops don't forget to buy a good quality cooling pad. Massive hard drive is a plus. I can't review the battery life as I always keep the laptop plugged in. Probably the best made computer I have bought in the last 25 years. (Oh, I forgot to mention that the only downside to this laptop is it came with Windows 8. What a mess that OS is.
Summary: This thing is a powerhouse. RAM and hard drive are easily upgradeable. As soon as I got it I wiped windows 8 off and setup windows 7 / arch linux dual boot. Having mostly Intel internals most of the drivers are no problem with windows or linux. The only issue I had is with the Nvidia card. Hacking driver support together for an M class Nvidia card has been awful.
Summary: I've been using this for about two years now, and haven't had any problems with this laptop. The best feature is that it has an mSATA slot for an SSD. While they can be expensive, this SSD is excellent to put the operating system on for faster boot times, leaving the other hard drive for storage.
Summary: We have all purchased technology at one time or another and walked away with a migrain and not product. This machine performs exceptionally well. The JBL sound is great, the HD Video is 3d quality and the processor is fast. The vendor was excellent in responding to any and all questions.
Summary: I bought it from Lenovo but its a great laptop. Its fairly sturdy, but it is a bit heavy. I switched out the 1TB for a 250GB SSD and then took out the Blue-ray drive and put the 1TB in with a caddy so that it would have two hard drives.(boots from off in 14 sec.) the small SSD slot is nice but the price of a small SSD is just not worth it yet in my opinion.
Summary: This is a very powerful desktop replacement. Beautiful look, keyboard, and screen. Downside is that this notebook is heavy and not very portable. For me this is not an issue but buyers should be aware.
Summary: I absolutely love this laptop. It has a fast processor, a nice bright screen, decent built-in speakers, and a good graphics card for some gaming, etc. I'm especially grateful to Amazon's customer support for being so kind and understanding with my order. Top-notch service. Highly recommended.
Summary: Arrived right on time. Great customer service. Sent an email to the shipper and was responded to within 24 hours. Bought computer refurbished. Looks and runs like a brand new computer. Absolutely wonderful and I love it. Runs games like a dream and can double as my work computer.
