Summary: I wouldn't buy anything from this company. Their follow-up service is almost non-existent, were it not for rudeness. I bought an MSI router brand new and the thing stopped working after 2 months. They refused to help me find a way to update the firmware. Based in Taiwan, I guess they don't care what happens after they've gotten your money. STAY AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE!!!
Pros: This laptop is everything I wanted and more. I7 processor is great, 12 gigs of ram, SSD and dual band router capabilities makes this laptop faster than fast. Not to even mention how great the graphics are. The 860m graphics can handle any game at High and Ultra on every game and still keep a solid frame rate. My favorite aspect if this laptop is the design. It looks like a high performance sports car. It's thin, light and it can pack a punch. Recommend to anyone looki...
Cons: None that would change my opinion. The only thing I can think of Is weird placement of the charger port. But if that changes your mind you ate crazy.
Summary: I had two major concerns when researching a new gaming laptop that were extremely hard to find clear answers to.
Pros: This laptop is living up to my expectations. I wanted a powerful laptop for gaming on trips that was lighter and smaller than my previous ASUS G73JW. The GS70 PE2 delivers!
Cons: My only real complaint so far is with the audio. It's weaker (more hollow/tinny) than I was used to on my G73JW. This may be improved with more settings tweaking but I haven't matched the quality level I want yet. The default settings in the Sound Blaster Cinema 2 software seems to make it worse than it needs to be.
Pros: Upgrading from an Alienware M17xR3, I wanted something this time around that wasn't so cumbersome. This laptop is lightweight, has a clean/simple/professional look, and feels extremely sturdy. The Aluminum chassis helps with venting heat. Performance is excellent.
Cons: Power port has a fragile pin inside that is prone to snapping. I've experienced this issue in the past with Asus laptops. I have not have a problem with this laptop, but I am worried that the same part will produce the same result.
Summary: Pros: Large / Clear / High Contrast Screen Great Keyboard (SOO quiet compared to Razer Ultimate) Super Fast (power to fully booted in about 6 seconds) Plays all my games at Max Settings (30 FPS or higher) (GTA IV, Splintercell Blacklist, League, SC2, Crysis, Fallout, Etc) Very Customizable Minimal Bloatware Very Thin (considering performance) Very Light (considering performance) Top/Side vents so that you can use it on soft surfaces.
Excerpt: I just got this computer, and I must say that I am impressed. It was made for gamers and therefore boasts solid specs. As for the make, it's all aluminum. It's light yet solid. I don't play games that much but I needed a powerful and light laptop for video editing and sfx processing. I've always had laptops because I like to use my computer everywhere, and I finally decided my dual core needed a well-deserved retirement. It was about time.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Fast Boot Thank You Ssd, Love The Solid Keyboard, My Wife Loved It, Powerful
Cons: Bloatware Not A Surprise, Not A Touch Screen
Summary: I regret buying this laptop and wish I had spent my money on a different brand.
Pros: The laptop seems to play most games at fairly high settings without too many hiccups. It isn't too loud and the screen is great.
Cons: Poor build quality. The keyboard is poor quality (where I usually hit the space bar on the lower right hand side doesn't register as a keystroke) and the touchpad started to function poorly (the left click function isn't smooth and the pad wobbles slightly) right after the Newegg return policy has ended. RMA shipping is apparently my responsibility (really?) and it'll take them up to a month(!) after receiving it to repair it.
