Summary: Good: Good screen, one of the best notebooks screens I saw recently. I liked it better than acer aspire v17 screen. Very light. Works reliably out of the box. Bad: One bad thing - it is very loud. Constant noise even when internet browsing and it gets really, really loud under even a moderate load.
Summary: Fast but annoying. After retirement, I wanted a computer to use at home, in the kitchen where a big desktop would not fit, better than the old MacBook laptop I had from work. Comparing the PC in my study versus the Imac at work... and studying...
Summary: I would have given this computer a five star rating were it not for a small defect. But first, what I like: I purchased it as a mobile workstation for doing After Effects and Cinema 4D on the road primarily, and game playing a distant second. It's a pretty decent workstation.
Summary: I work as a computer repair tech in a college shop, and handle a wide variety of laptops on a regular basis. PROS: The CPU and GPU are excellent, and their implementation in this thin/light form factor is impressive.
Great laptop, but seller needs to fix these issues before sending

Summary: When I got the package, it came with everything as they stated which I was quite ecstatic about getting this upgrade from my 2010 Asus G73SW. Computer performs great and its GPU can basically handle whatever I throw at it, which is great.
A product with good performance but still has a long way to go...

Summary: I bought this laptop in June 2014 and after half year of using I conclude some pros and cons: Pros: Good looking out shape, light weight compared to its screen size. GTX860M is good enough for this model due to the limited cooling capacity. Color backlight for keyboard is pretty cool.
Summary: Very good specs for the price. Overall a good buy, but there are definitely sacrifices to get there. The chassis isn't as sturdy as some brands and flexes a little bit. One of my rubber feet fell off already after only a few months of normal use.
Summary: It's difficult to fairly rate this laptop. It will be my desktop replacement for the foreseeable future as I don't want to bring my desktop to college. It is a very significant downgrade from my desktop and I've always hated laptops, so unfortunately I feel like I am already biased against it.
