Summary: Replaced the stock HD with a Samsung 850 pro. Boot time is insanely fast. Games beautifully. Also bumped up the ram and installed a 2nd ssd. Only bad thing is that you have to tear the warranty sticker to open the bottom, which I have never had to do on any other laptop (tear the sticker).

Summary: I absolutely love this machine., been gaming on it for two months now and never a problem. Be advised, this is more of a desktop replacement than a portable unit. It's 2 inches thick and weighs as much as a gallon of milk.
Summary: I am really happy with this so far. This laptop is seriously powerful for the price. I spent a lot of time researching, and you are saving about $500 when compared to new laptops with the same hardware. The hardware can run games at 60 frames with fairly high settings at 1080.
Summary: I bought this gaming computer for my 14 year old son who is big into gaming. He did a lot of research and and decided this was the "best bang for the buck." He is very happy with it. It has a great graphics card that gives him great frame rates.
Summary: Just got this beast of a machine, and I am in love with it. It is fast and the display will blow you away. Even after reading the reviews here about the "noisy fan issues" and "getting very hot when gaming".
