Summary: I purchased two of these laptops for use as Home/Gaming desktop replacements. I am more than impressed. The Laptop is well made, solid, and the performance is better than expected; out of the box with nothing but Nvidia Driver updates they posted 10000+ score on 3D Mark's fire-strike. My only complaint is that I would like a 3k or 4k display; that said but the full 1080P HD display is clear and crisp with excellent color accuracy.
Summary: I absolutely love my new laptop! Boot up is under 8 seconds, games run very well, and work apps run great too. The keyboard lighting is a nice feature as well. The build quality is top notch, and the logo on the back is not overly gaudy (an important consideration in a business setting). This laptop looks amazing! The keyboard layout has several non-standard key locations many reviewers don't like. The placement of the windows key is a common complaint.
Great laptop for gaming that does not break the bank or your back!

Summary: I travel for work frequently and needed a laptop that was light, but also powerful enough to run modern games. This laptop is amazing! It runs everything I throw at it smoothly and quickly. The only complaint that I can think of for this is that the fans get really loud if you are playing a game and the laptop itself gets pretty hot as well. This is to be expected with something this size and this powerful. Would recommend to anyone that needs a high end gaming laptop.
Summary: Love this laptop!!! I'v had it for a couple months now and its FAST! The 12 sec boot is great. I run StarCraft 2 on ULTRA setting and it doesn't even blink. Very sturdy build and lite for a 17" laptop. Love the back-lite keyboard.
Summary: Laptop arrived quickly and well packaged. My purchase did include the bonus accessory pack, although I did not find most of the products useful. The free backpack barely fit the laptop, the headset was cheaply made, and the mouse was not up to "gaming" par. The laptop itself is a beast! The statistics prove they are worth the money spent.
