5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Machine

Pros: Super fast. Handles heavy 3D applications very well.

Cons: Keyboard a bit fragile. Heavy as a cinder block...

Other Thoughts: I am a freelance 3D modeler and VFX artist. I needed a powerful laptop that could allow me to take my work on the road from time to time. This beast has been excellent in that regard. I can run Maya and my entire Adobe Production Suite without any lag or hiccups.

One concern - the keyboard keys are a connected with very fragile plastic clips. I accidentally discovered this while wiping down the keyboard the other day. I managed to snag a key and it popped right off. The good news is that was easy to disassemble the popped key, put the clip back in the keyboard and then pop the key back over it.

My only con is the weight. I knew going in that this machine is a brick... but it really is a factor if you have several bags to wrestle and this is in a case with a shoulder strap. Use a backpack if you can find one that fits this monster. I wish I had before taking this machine to Hawaii... after crossing several airports my neck was killing me.

3 out of 5 eggsnot a bad laptop

Pros: Fast, powerful, everything you need for a gaming laptop

Cons: I like the laptop dont get me wrong, but I dont like the survice newegg provided. The laptop came in with a fan that's defective and makes a hella of dadada noise. I called newegg custom support the next day I got it. All i asked is for them to fix the fan and it took them 2 weeks to do nothing and another week to send it back. Guess what? The fan is still defective. I enjoy the performance of this machine but its annoying as hell.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: I love it ! Its fast as hell, you can throw everything at it. I love the design and Colors. It stays totally cool. Ive never had the fan Speed go up. I played quiet a few games with it now.The Sound is amazing for a Notebook, love that the Sound Speakers are right in front of you. The Laptop is very quiet... even while playing games and not having Headsets on. You def. pay what you get for.

Cons: Windows 8, even tho i am starting to get used to it. I owe an iphone 4s & a Samsung galaxy s4, for me personally is it not that big of a Problem.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Gaming Notebook

Pros: *Great Mobile GPU and CPU (a huge upgrade over my 560mgtx)
*Nice crisp 1080p screen
*blazing fast mSATA primary SSD
*beautiful back lit keyboard
*Turbo Fan really keeps the GPU cool
*alum chassis

Cons: A little expensive
Nvidia Optimus still doesn't automatically switch at all times.
Windows 8 is alright, but not as great as windows 7
* comes with about 50Gb of the SSD filled, but that can be taken care of with a few tweaks.

Other Thoughts: When I bought this laptop, I knew I wanted a top of the line GPU considering I was coming from a 560m GTX. I was narrowing it down between the MSI gt70, the MSI GT 60 or a Sager 9390, but the Sager 9390 was still in Pre Order and I didn't want to wait.
Everything about this laptop is great so far. Amazing GPU that runs games on the highest settings except Crysis 3, but thats expected for Crysis games.
Windows 8 took a little while to get used to, but it's not as bad as people claim.
The price is a little expensive considering you can get a similar GT60 model with almost the same exact specs (mSATA included) for 2,000 or 300 dollars less. I wanted the 17'3 inch screen becuase the 15'6 inch is a tad bit small when it comes to a 1080p screen.
The laptop came with a bit of bloatware, including multiple unnecessary language packs that take up quite a bit of HD space, and the page file and hibernation files are set ridiculously high at defualt, eating up more HDD space.
SSDs are a night and day difference when it comes to read/write times compared to a mechanical HD. Also I can put in two more msata SSDs down the line when necessary.
All in all its a great notebook, great specs, great hardware, but I guess thats expected when you purchase a laptop with a top of the line nvidia mobile GPU.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast laptop

Pros: Just about everything I play is amazing. I can all my graphics maxed which is something I couldn't even do with my old desktop OR my last laptop which was fairly new but just couldn't take the hits graphic card wise. The keyboard is nice for night gaming especially being to change the color to make the letters easier to see. HD is amazing and although Windows 8 takes up a good amount of the SSD harddrive, the D drive has more tan enough space for all my games (which includes the sims 3+expansions a space/graphics eater) It also has a very nice set up for the fans and vents, your lap stays cool and so does the laptop!

Cons: My biggest issue with this laptop is windows 8, but that isn't so much the laptop's fault....just unfortunate that it only really had that option. Even then its just a pain to have to relearn how to navigate windows. It is also a bit on the heavy side, though it is a desktop replacement for now for me so as expected.

Other Thoughts: The only other issue is the touch pad. It has some tricks to it to help navigate Window 8, however it can be a bit of a hassle when the start bar keeps pulling out when trying to navigate. Solution use a mouse.
