Powerful (not top of the line, but powerful) gaming machine
Everything runs smooth
Big, bright screen
Small left shift key
Everything is pretty much self explanatory here.
I played Tera on it for about 3 hours, and it didn't even start to get as hot as my other laptop, which turns into a lava pit at the mere mention of "Netflix." Didn't even have to use the cooling boost option, which is fantastic by the way.
Overall, I'm happy. I'll update if anything goes wrong, but I doubt it will.
Edit: It is now Day 2. I noticed that the charger gets incredibly hot when used for a few hours. My old laptop didn't do that, though my old laptop didn't game, either. Not sure how bad this is, but its something to keep in mind. Also, the cooling boost option is fantastic. The laptop would probably die without it.
Edit: It's been a while since i got this laptop, but less than a month. I haven't dropped it or treated it with anything less than the utmost care, and now when i rest my hand on the bottom right corner of the laptop, it makes a clicking noise, as though something came loose. I am not sure if this is serious, or if it will lead to more serious problems, but i am disappointed.
[Update!] Its been less than a year (I think) since I bought this laptop,and the motherboard has failed. Fantastic. Not sure if my unit was just defective, or if they're all like that, but I'm now left with a $1000 brick.
UPDATE UPDATE. So, the problem was with the multicontroller. Essentially, the power board broke. I got it fixed and everything is fine now, but its still kind of shady that this happened.
Sleek finish on the casing makes the laptop appear much more professional than other gaming laptops, which I find to be a plus. The wrist resting surface on the inside is comfortable and doesn't get hot with the laptop (which doesn't happen much!)
A standard 1920x1080 pixel resolution display on a 15.6" screen makes the picture clear at a very close viewing distance. Something deceptive about the larger laptops is that they can actually spread out the pixels on the larger screen when they have the same resolution display making the image appear worse when you're at the close distance you'd expect to have in a laptop. The screen is exceptionally bright (moreso than my last laptop) and I haven't experienced any glare on the screen from artificial or sun light. Viewable at a wide range of viewing angles as well.
To my surprise the keyboard has a full numberpad which was an adjustment but definitely a plus for me in the long run. However, this pushed the arrow keys into the right shift key which makes it a bit small. There's also no "function" key on the right side of the keyboard, requiring two hands to adjust the volume or screen brightness. The keyboard by SteelSeries (great gaming accessory company; I ordered a mouse pad from them a few months back) feels very sharp and precise with key presses and has a satisfying weight to each key.Read more ›
I've had it for three days now and I must say it's a very nice laptop. The graphics aren't as good as my ATI 7970, but they're able to run Tomb Raider on ultra and that's all I could really ask for. The start up speed is reasonable, lots of HD space, and 8gb of ram isn't too shabby. The back-lit keyboard is alright, it only has three options: on, half on, off. And the different levels of lighting aren't amazing. The sound is great, and the ethernet card is very, very fast. The HD screen looks amazing, and the quality/feel of the keys is very nice.
The touchpad, however, feels very cheap. That is something I'm not in love with at all. I feel if I press it too hard it will move and become stuck out of position. With such a nice keyboard you would think the touchpad would match, but it doesn't.
So, if you're a tl;dr type of person, here is my quick summary.
+Good Graphics at Pricepoint
+Great Quality Display
+Amazing sound (better than expected)
-Cheapy cheap touchpad
-lack luster backlight keybaord
-Windows 8 (I had to troubleshoot an error right after I booted it up...)
-Slow hard drive (start up/shut down a bitttt slow, but that can be fixed with SSD)
-Small ass right shift key
It is a really good buy at the price.Read more ›
