5 out of 5 eggsVroom

Pros: Fast and solid. Runs like a dream. Love the 17" screen. Boots in 12 seconds.

Cons: A bit hot when the game is crunching hard. No operating problems from heat however.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with my new rig. I also got a cooling pad to go with it and the set-up is sweet. I would recommend this as a gaming laptop. Also the service and delivery from Newegg.ca was prompt, with good communication.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this monster

Pros: I truly love the dragon edition design compared to the alu-black one. Love the internal setting, the price (bought it below 1500 with software pack and charger).

Cons: the fan noise is noteable.
occation spike in game (not sure if it's due to network or computer) so not gonna take egg off

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful laptop at a great price

Pros: High quality build, beautiful design, great price and a joy to own. the keyboard is beautiful, the graphics when plugged in are beautiful this graphics card lets you play pretty much anything you want in ultra. with 1344 cuda cores its comparable to the gforce gtx 760 what i have in my desktop.

Cons: Windows 8.1 worst operating system invented cant wait till 10 is available because being forced have windows 8.1 is to say the least stressful. although i love how they fixed the speed issue i hate how its optimized for touch screen and apps. Microsoft is not apple and they should keep the operating system on devices it was designed for. but that's it with my rant on windows 8, this is the only con i have found.

Other Thoughts: the backpack you get with it is good qulit, when you get this you are happy you spent the money because you get more then the other companies give you with great quality and i unique laptop that you will probably never see anyone else have.... but i could be wrong. i hope this helps some one decide on what they want

4 out of 5 eggsMostly fantastic

Pros: runs like a dream, I am able to run power hungry games such as ffxiv and diablo 3 at maximum, and its nice and smooth.
With the SSD the boot time is virtually non-existent as well.
This model is also perfectly silent while running the desktop or surfing the internet. The main fan has a nice button to the left of the power button for when you start running hot.
The laptop also has a sleek looking aluminium finish, the subtle image of the dragon is nice and eye catching. it looks better then the pictures above show.
The steelseries built in keyboard is light up with customizable colors and is literally hours of fun for the whole family.

Cons: The built in monitor is horrible. As a photography student it is completely unacceptable for working. For some reason the Blue is over saturated to the point of absurdity. It took many hours of trial and error to get the screen looking reasonable, but it is still off, some hues are muted.
Also... it ghosts. I didn't know they made monitors with this poor a response time anymore. There is little point in having a smooth running game if it just ghosts everywhere and looks poor.
And while not really a true con, when you turn the main fan on the system sounds like its about to blast off.

Other Thoughts: A great buy for the price, but as a device labeled as "gaming" the display is completely unacceptable. lucky I can just attach an external monitor, but I didn't want to tote one of those around for school work.
I can't give this 5 eggs due to the monitor. It's a sad day when my cellphone has a better display.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome, but bulky.

Pros: Looks awesome
Amazing specs, haven't tried it yet

Cons: Weight, but with all that's going into the system, I'm not taking off an egg.
Mine had a black mark behind the mirror next to the web cam. Not too big of an issue but it exist there... probably forever.
Touch pad not as good as my old one but still OK. So I'll get a mouse instead of using it to game.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive so far

Pros: - extremely impressive presentation
- love, love, love the design. dragon theme stands out.
- general build quality is very high
- prompts awe at the buttery smoothness of everything. Actually does Windows 8.1 some justice by making everything just so visually seamless.
- makes me want to learn the OS even though I love 7 so much
- high value for the dough (it comes with its own backpack! That alone kind of offsets the extra cost for the little improvements over the regular ol Dominator.)

Cons: - webcam requires a little investigation
- warranty void sticker prevents adding that last little bit of RAM without hesitation. I wish MSI would let me use the RAID they set up on the controller without having to break their mechanical coverage. I will probably cave in and do it anyway at some point, so whatever.
- even though great bang for the buck, still hurts to spend 1600 on a laptop with a BD-ROM when I have no Blu-Rays. Well now I have an excuse I guess.

Other Thoughts: I am tickled pink about the laptop, but I have one minor nitpick: don't show me a review of it with lots of inbox goodies and not have any. The wax seal would have been cool, but it's not exactly missed either, so it's okay. And the fact that it arrived literally the day after the day it shipped dries my tears quite a bit. You rock, Newegg!

4 out of 5 eggsPhenomenal Desktop Replacement

Pros: It looks absolutely gorgeous, the design is incomparable and everyone in my family was like "WHOA, who's laptop is that!". The sound was so great, I was able to watch videos from far away and hear perfectly fine, even if my baby was busy talking to himself (that could get loud sometimes, lol). The internet connection was also, SO amazing. My iPhone loses it's WiFi connection when I get to my driveway area, this laptop was capable of having a solid 2/3 bar's when I took it to the backyard (which is much further than my driveway). NewEgg had ultimate service as far as packaging, returning, the whole shpeel was easier than buying something from the store and having to return it that way, by far. The price is a super deal and the gifts are a great bargain, if you'll be using them. Everything was better than expected and it is definitely worth a buy, maybe even over the GT72, but the only real difference between the 2 is an 880m and Dual Fan vs this 870m and a great Single Fan. Do yourself the favor and save your money and settle for this one, just hope you get a good package.

Cons: Unfortunately, I was delivered a defective unit, even the simplest games (Vindictus, Counter Strike: Source, etc) were having horrible frame rates, I knew it wasn't normal because my $400 refurbished laptop from HP was doing better rates. Then again, this was also my first Win 8.1, which I can't stand to be quite frank. Either wait for Win 9 or go with 7 Pro/Ultimate, if you're a gamer. Anyway, I was going to ask NewEgg to just replace it with a new one that isn't defective, but the reason to why I decided to just get a refund is because of the weight of this thing. When you're trying to be a "gamer on the go", trust me, having to hog around a fat battery (that only lasts you 1:15 while videoing/gaming, with a 2.17" thick 17.3" screen laptop that is quite heavy, you're not gunna be comfortable. This monster is for those who are looking to OCCASIONALLY move it around, and replace your desktop instead. I'm not like everyone else out there, so my money is going to wait for a super thin super lightweight Win 9 gaming laptop around December.

Other Thoughts: Would have been 5 eggs if it wasn't for the defect I experienced.
