Summary: As basic as I can be here - the layout of the keyboard drives me nuts. I thought I could deal with it but the delete key is in a way wrong place. It's over the forward slash key on the number pad. The arrow keys are incorrectly placed. Also drives me nuts. I can deal with the windows key being where it is but that is only because I almost never use it. The num lock key has to be pressed just right to work.
Summary: Seemed like a good computer for the first week. Then it wouldn't let you download anything from the internet. When we called the company they suggested wiping the computer. Why should you have to lose your stuff after only having it for a week.
Windows 8.1 negates all the good featuresabout this laptop

Summary: I ordered this on Saturday. It arrived on Monday. Extra shipping cost was $6! Great service by XoticPC. But the wireless connection on this device is AWFUL! I don't know if it's the card or the software. I am replacing a MacBook Pro because Mavericks software completely ruined Mail. As I work from home, I rely on Mail. So I eventually decided to go back to Windows. Before the Mac I had an MSI laptop that was unbelievable. I used it for 3 years before getting the Mac.
Summary: This laptop was supposed to be my long overdue replacement for a really old Sony, and at first it seemed to be perfect. It's a little on the heavy side for its size, but it ran quietly and incredibly well and I was really enjoying it for the first month. Until one day, about three weeks after it was delivered to me brand new, it suddenly shut off. There was no warning: the computer completely died and I couldn't turn it back on.
Summary: It was powerful, but it felt a bit cheap. My thought of it being cheap was further reinforced when I had to restore the laptop to factory settings on the second day of owning it. Lastly, it struggled to connect to my WiFi. I returned the laptop and bought an alien ware laptop on sale for almost the same price and it feels almost twice as nice.
Summary: (see end of review for update) I purchased a Lenovo with similar specs, but Windows 8 and it had very bad sound so I had to send it back. I've had this very laptop purchased from this seller for 2 days and I LOVE it! It might help you to know that it runs Minecraft on all the highest settings very smoothly. It also runs Skyrim on High very smoothly. I tried ultra, and while it does run, it can be a little jerky.
Summary: zu dem Gerät selbst kann ich nur sagen, war total enttäuscht von der Qualität, billiges Plastikgehäuse. Das Display sollte man mit beiden Händen aufklappen wegen der Instabilität. Der einzigste Pluspunkt ist die Hardware die innen verbaut ist, "Rattenschnell", wem das reicht der kann ihn kaufen. Fazit : kein Vergleich zu Lenovo oder Asus die man für einen vergleichbaren Preis bekommt. Habe ihn am gleichen Tag zurückgeschickt. Zwei Sterne sind Optimistisch.
Summary: Ich habe das Notebook ohne Betriebssystem bestellt, in der Hoffung darauf Windows 7 installieren zu können. Leider sind nur Win8 Treiber auf der mitgelieferten DVD enthalten, auch im Downloadbereich des Herstellers gibt es nur Windows8 Treiber. Schade; bei den Schwestermodellen GE-60 ist Windows7 kein Problem und wird voll unterstützt. Leider fehlen auch M-Sata-Schnittstelle und die Tastaturbeleuchtung. Ich habe mir deshalb ein GE-60-550 besorgt.
