Summary: Everything is good except the screen is terrible. It's bright and washed out and can't be fixed by tweaking the contrast/brightness/gamma. I assumed this had an IPS/PLS display like the apache pro 003, because I couldn't find any specific info about screen. It is in fact a cheap TN panel.
Summary: Everything else is good except cooling/fan system. People like me who sweats a lot might know what I'm talking about. I just got this laptop, downloaded sc2 and played for like 30 mins. I thought my wrist was burning. Freaking sweat stain on keyboard, too.
Summary: not worth the price in my opinion, came with windows 8 and that ruins everything. It was super slow and i had to uninstall a bunch of software that came with it. When i tries to play games it wouldn't play properly because it was set to use the integrated intel graphics and not the GPU. Overall if you can get past the price and the constant windows 8 problems this laptop can do what you want.
Summary: I received the computer yesterday which was two days after ordering. I guess prime is somewhat useful for the $80 they charge for it. The laptop has a very nice keyboard and screen. The palmrest area is metal and the fan noise is fairly low. But I haven't run a game yet. The speed is okay. This model comes with 8 GB and a 1TB hard drive. It doesn't have the mSATA so bootup is slow at 40 seconds to 1 minute. The OS has rebooted several times to load updates.
Summary: The keyboard is excellent for typing and in the night you get support from the backlight; NVIDIA does a really great job on gaming (and will do it for pretty long time from now on); the cooler does also a good job - if you go gaming for hours, the laptop might get a bit hot in the upper left part - no problem,just activate the booster for cooler and everything will be OK (for long time gaming i use also an external cooler to give some help to the built-in one).
Summary: Amazing graphics, the resolution and graphics in this laptop is very good value for money but there is so much wrong with this laptop! The HDD is buggy. The wifi consantly drops on ANY router, network card is poor. Battery lasts around 40mins but you expect that in such a powerful laptop. Windows 8 is very very poor.
