Summary: it is a pretty good machine, and I can run the newest game, such as GTA5 quite smoothily with the high setting. The only thing I concern is that this machine may not be very suitable for playing high-end games for more than 2 hours, otherwise it becomes pretty hot. Overall, I still think this is a decent gaming laptop.
Summary: I researched many brands and options before buying a new laptop, my old machine was pushing 4 1/2 years old and needed to be replaced. The specs are good especially for the price. I purchased this unit for the processor speed and the graphics card. The memory is one 8gb stick so it can easily be upgraded to 16gb without having to buy two sticks, that is always a bonus. I plan to upgrade the memory very soon.
Summary: Price went up over $400 since I bought it under a week ago, and free shipping is no longer available. Even if the PC dies within the next week, I don't think I'd be disappointed because of the deal I got. Good PC, I'd recommend it. Now, on the other hand, the battery life is sub-par even for a PC at the price I purchased it. All around, a great PC if it had a better battery life.
Summary: I purchased the product on 2/27/15 after reading some reviews. I'm not a gamer, but I liked the specs, so I purchased a refurbished model for $800 since it was significantly less than the $999 for a brand new one. It was only $50 more than the one I got from one of the big box stores with lesser spec'd components and no optical. I received the laptop on 3/5/15. I was impressed with the looks and the features it had.
Summary: I ordered this laptop checking with the lowest price 1150$ and ended up payinh 1220+$ and some change.I got the laptop with 0 protection, i mean the box was too big for the laptop and moreover in the free space there was brown papers which doesnt provide any protection to the laptop. And there was the laptop box without any outer cover to the box like i saw in reviews.
Summary: Bought this to replace my 2006 macbook for graphic design work and occasional MMO games. the good: Setup was easy, the screen resolution is good, the keyboard is perfect, matte screen is a plus, ssd slot available, ram upgradable to 16gb, 1tb hard drive 7200, lighter than my 13 in macbook, and textured trackpad.
