5 out of 5 eggsThe one you been looking for

Pros: The sound is amazing, trust that you will be impressed. The look is not as overly shiny as shown in pictures, you can cary to work or wherever and blend in with a uniqueness about your laptop.
The hd camera is great as I use skpe sometimes.
usb ports perform well giving high transfer rates.
The laptop is fast and performs playing games like Metro 2033 with relative ease.
Fun laptop to have.

Cons: just the overall attractiveness of dirt to the laptop.
No real issue with the keyboard, works fine and feels as it should

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: Great laptop for the money. The grafx card can get a little hot around 70c but that's to be expected in a laptop. Plus you can keep it at about 58c with the fan on high. Looks great sound is unbelievable for a laptop. Because of the lower resolution its able to blow away the games with ease. All and all i think this is the best laptop out for your money.

Cons: Ram and HDD score low in windows system rating but not really noticeable. Upgrading to 6 gigs of ram using all 3 slots can be a pain due to removal of keyboard to access the third slot. Some bloat ware but most of it is to demo the new features. Should have came packaged with 6gigs ram.

Other Thoughts: If your on the market and looking for something for gaming i would really recommend you this laptop. Because of the socket type if the time ever comes when you need to have a quad core processor you can swap the i5 out of this one and put a i7 in. Everything about this laptop is good. Feels sturdy with minimal flex on the keyboard when typing.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor sound quality and USB issues

Pros: Nicely designed, comfortable keyboard, excellent cooling and and extra features, powerful GPU. Minimal bloat-ware.
Esata and USB 3.0 is very nice to have. HD webcam is nice if you need one.

Cons: Sound quality is extremely poor above a certain level. Certain USB devices (a logitech mouse) will cause the system to become very unresponsive and slow down to a crawl, so far this is the only culprit, but there maybe other peripherals that cause this issue. Batter life if bad, a 12-cell would have been nice considering what a power hog the high-end components are. 2hrs is the max you should expect to get before you need to get to an outlet.

Other Thoughts: This system was touted as having superior audio quality(main reason I purchased it) as well as being a great gaming machine. I agree with the gaming aspect but the audio quality sharply decreases above a certain volume. This has nothing to do with the speakers which were used (they are acutally phenomenal), but rather the keyboard. Above a certain threshold the keys around the f-9 to f-12 and those around that area will begin to vibrate at an annoying frequency- it sounds very much like a blown sub-woofer even though its not, so far I've been able to alleviate this problem by gently placing my fingers or some object over the offending keys but this is very frustrating. I've tried to contact support but no luck getting someone on the phone. I have a feeling that this may occur in all Gx660 models.

On another note the one I own is slightly different than this model, it's the i7 version but I believe the problem is based on the keyboard design itself, otherwise this is a 5 star
