4 out of 5 eggsWhat I expected

Pros: Steel Series does make this laptop feel so comfortable in your hand. It can run pretty much every current game on ultra except for battlefield4 , well it can but if only mantle is being used, which this r9 has no support for bf4 mantle just yet. The CPU got a lot of heat for it's speed, but where intel throws everything at a cpu with raw power. this A10 takes shortcuts to get the job done as an i7 would be just being crazy powerful. Think of it as a Warrior (i7) Vs Rogue (amd A10). A warrior is brute force and rogue is agile but will lose head on to a warrior. The rogue has a secret weapon called mantle! enough to take on that i7 warrior in sneaky combat. Other neat thing I like is the cooling button. if you are pushing that GPU to the limit the cooling button is a great feature. other then that the rest is just bells and whistles that any company or similar price range laptop will offer. 4.5 hours on battery if balanced. 5 hours if all power saver options turned on.

Cons: Air plane mode is a useless feature for this type of laptop.
Fn+ audio buttons are not the best idea IMO. I rather have a mute button independent of the arrow keys. Spacing of the power adapter with the Ethernet port is uncomfortable
no downgrade options for windows 7. If you are looking for a product key to windows 8, you will not find it. it is embedded in the bios.

Other Thoughts: if you plan on downgrading please don't, unless you wanna just swap out drives or do a full backup of the original OEM drive. you will not be able to install your old version windows 8 again if you change your mind. it is a 35 dollar charge to get a windows 8 recovery disk, which I think is total guano to pay money for a backup product you should have had in the first place. All in all for a true novice to gaming where they don't see a laptop in the same light as a techie it is a decent machine that will bring joy. For a techie this machine will have some frustrations but you can live with. This is still a great gaming machine and a steal for the amount you are paying for.
