Screen is great, one of the better laptop screens I've gotten. Tiny bit of bleeding and uneven backlight, but you get that with most screens unless you pay a LOT more...
Really though, the next cheapest laptop you can get with a 7970 vid card in it starts around 1500, so if you're on a budget and want gaming, this thing is fantastic. The nVidia alternatives don't quite pack the punch of the 7970, except for the 680, but those are again a whole price range up from this machine. Everything else around 1200 dollar mark carries 670's, 675's, and they'll all be a bit slower, especially at 1080P.
The keyboard is a pleasure to type, the speakers are great. And the screen is OK. The touchpad is below average. I don't like the finish of the button, and also that it is not 2 separate buttons, also that there are no gestures and the such. I mostly use it with a mouse, but keep in mind that the touchpad is generally bad. Also, the construction of the screen housing looks and feels rather cheap around the edges. I also don't like the finish on the outer shell of the lid.Read more ›
As others have said, this is an entry level gamer's laptop and it doesn't disappoint there. Most new games, it does not get 60+ FPS on 1080P and ultra settings, but it will get 60+ FPS on 1080P and high settings. You will have to play around with the games video settings to get it perfect, but expect it to be somewhere between high and ultra/highest.
At this price, you will sacrifice some raw CPU power for more GPU. But the biggest thing that is holding back this laptop is the 7200 RPM Hard drive. Upgrade that first and you will get a little better performance.
This is made for more of a gamer than a desktop power user. A lot of heavy processes will slow down this laptop (like playing iTunes while converting old lost-but-recently-found CDs, browsing the internet, downloading and installing updates, moving files from another PC and photo-shopping while you are waiting for a 20+ GB zip file to extract (yup that was how my first hour went). Again when looking at the performance, the hard drive is just too slow - at 100% usage while everything else is below.
I have also notice that this laptop has some of the best WiFi connection speeds I have seen. On my home internet, it is a 6 Mbps speed and I get 6 Mbps consistently for hours (days?). At work I have seen over 32 Mbps. Other desktops and laptops on my same network will not get that good of speeds even if they are on the network by itself.
1. Great mobile gaming for price
2. great GPU
3. eyefinity (great multi-display)
4. Additional HD bay

Also, though reviewers noted it's relatively modest Windows performance, I haven't noticed an issue with it. It's plenty fast for my uses: Office, Java programming, and photo editing. The 750 GB HDD runs at 7200 rpm, giving the machine excellent I/O performance for a laptop. Feel free to install an SSD if you'd like, but personally I haven't had performance problems with what the computer shipped with.
With a generous 8 GB of RAM, even most power users will be set for a long time to come. Also, the matte screen is excellent, with crisp text, rich colors, and respectable viewing angles. And being able to play Blu-Rays on the go is fabulous. Best value under $1500.
