The specs speak for themselves. I'm not a big gamer, but I do 3D modeling and rendering as a hobby, and this thing handles rendering almost as well as my desktop computer. The 12GB of RAM really helps to keep everything running smoothly, no matter how many programs I have open or Chrome tabs running simultaneously.
I did do a personal upgrade from the standard operating system hard drive to a 128GB solid state drive (SSD). The speed difference is astounding! If you're not comfortable with changing out hard drives and re-installing Windows and drivers, then just make the upgrade here at the point of purchase; otherwise, it's not difficult. Either way, you'll be VERY glad you made the leap to SSD!
The mouse pad is a multitouch pad. There is no scroll section off to the side like in my HP laptops. Scrolling is achieved by dragging two fingers simultaneously down the touchpad. Zooming in and out is achieved just how it is done on iPhones and Androids, by squeezing fingers together on the pad or by spreading them out. Three fingers dragged down is "Show Desktop", etc. There aren't a lot of multitouch commands, but the ones that are there are pretty handy.
I only have two complaints so far:
1) the speakers are inordinately quiet. My HP could get pretty loud. This thing? Not so much. It's probably OK for most people, but I have three small kids and my wife is always running some kitchen appliance, so I need my laptop to be able to overcome a lot of background noise. As is, this one's capabilities are barely adequate.
2) a minor complaint, but still a tad annoying--I can't find where to change the abilities of some of the function keys. For example, "fn+Enter" (on the keypad) brings up the calculator. I want to change this to bring up not the Microsoft basic calculator, but GraphCalc 4.0.1 that I use far more often. So far, I have been unable to find this functionality.
Overall this is a fantastic piece of equipment. It's solid, feels rugged (though I hope to never test that), and is very powerful. If I wasn't addicted to my dual-monitor beast of a desktop computer, this laptop could certainly function as a good desktop replacement.
Most of what I do on this is play MMO's and use music recording software such as Ableton live, and Reason.
It runs every MMO I've played on high settings perfectly.
It also runs Ableton live faster than I've ever seen.
Surfs the web incredibly fast. Even faster than my custom desktops!
The gaming mouse that comes with the computer is very nice. Feels good in the hands, and even has a sensitivity option built in.
I haven't had a chance to use the backpack yet, but it does fit quite snugly, and it's great to have if you are without one.
The laptop itself, while somewhat bulky, looks awesome(as a gaming computer should) and the keyboards back light is quite nice.
The battery doesn't last too long, but not unreasonably so, and I'm usually in house while using it anyway.
I would highly recommend this computer for casual to moderate gaming, media programs, surfing the web and writing papers or doing homework on.
But everything other than these few problems is wonderful. Design is beautiful, lights on the keyboard is a nice touch. On the rather hefty side, which isn't much of a problem for me, I don't move my laptop around much. Cooling system seems to work very well. And as said earlier, performance is great. Overall, I'd recommend this laptop, but it would be a STRONG recommendation if it wasn't for the unexpected exits/restarts. Not very conductive to raiding or other MMO scenarios where you just can't have your computer randomly restarting.
It's been a few more weeks with this laptop. I'm still extremely happy with the performance of the machine. The random restarts haven't happened since I wrote my original review. Mousepad still stinks but like I said, no big deal; I know that's one flaw of laptops.
But to update my recommendation: 100% all in on this laptop. I would pick it again if I had the option and pay the same price.
