Summary: First off, the power of the GTX 970m and the i7 4710MQ with its 3.5GHZ hyperthreading are amazing. Generally it performs like my desktop with a GTX 670 and an i5 3570k @ 4GHZ, which is pretty impressive for a laptop. In gaming I've found that it can handle most of the current generation games at maxed settings, but it depends on how picky you are.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop specifically for the purpose of gaming. So far this has lived up to its expectations. This is a solid laptop for gaming. Its powerful and serves the purpose. Surprisingly, it does not heat up during lengthy sessions of gaming. Overall worth its price-tag. No problems faced so far.
Summary: I love this laptop... I have a ssd I put in as well as the 1 HDD it came with. It is a worthy investment. I can pretty much powerhouse any game on high or ultra over or at 60 fps. Do yourself a favor and buy this one then do self upgrades for a fraction of the price. Also pictures do no justice as it is looks amazing.
Summary: Laptop came quickly - ahead of the shipping schedule (ground shipment). Very fast laptop for gaming, especially given the refurb price. Even with advanced games on their highest rendering settings, everything plays smoothly. Would certainly buy another this way if/when we need another laptop or PC. The only issue we have had is an audio jack that doesn't want to cooperate. Switched to a USB mic and that was that.
Summary: Exceeds expectations! Lot's of raw power; monster GPU. Works great as both a gaming machine and rendering of video, animation, and stills. I run Octane Render on this laptop, very satisfied with the 880 GPU. The scheme they use with the drives does indeed yield great performance on this machine; really fast loading times and significant improvements on disk intensive operations.
