4 out of 5 eggsGreat system

Pros: After removing the bloatware system runs great, upgraded to SSD for boot drive, and ti boots in 12seconds flat.

Cons: Loses 1 star as the SATA channels were known to be buggy, only the first 2 of 4 will give you sata3, the other 2 will only give you sata2. There apparently was a recall over this, but newegg failed to mention it, However as I am only using 0 & 1 It has become a non-issue for performance for me.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Everything I wanted in a laptop. Powerful video card, I can run every game I've tried with at least 60 fps ( SC2, CSS LoL, HL2 DM, CODMW2). Keyboard is awesome and the number pad is a plus. Speakers are awesome! Great display. Overall a great laptop, very powerful.

Cons: Tons of Spam and advertising programs. You can always just wipe comp and start from scratch. Also I don't know how many other people have an issue with this, but my left pinky keeps hitting the eco button making me alt tab from my program. I'm left handed, don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Other Thoughts: It's a massive computer 18.4 inches is huge. The only thing I was worried about with getting the computer was the size and it really is huge, non the less I still love it.

5 out of 5 eggsGaming

Pros: I've been very pleased with this laptop so far. when i first booted it up everything went smooth, and remained smooth during updates. there was almost no bloatware on it, just the always there but never used NORTON.

For gaming, it runs silent. the first thing i did was fire up Half Life 2. It's not a demanding game but it ran perfect on max settings with 16x AA and native resolution. the temperature kept around 63c while playing and quickly dropped back down after playing.

The specs are lovely. Honestly 4GB ram is all you need if you're planing to play games on this because the graphics card picks up most of the load and can handle all up-to-date games. while, the i5 Sandy Bridge is the cherry to the toppings. the i5 offers lower heat give off than the i7 and more eco for power. If you're looking for the perfect CPU for a gaming laptop this is it and goes without burning a hole in your wallet or your laptops's temp.

Cons: Only thing that annoyed me was the Skype sticker that was placed on the brim of the laptop near the webcam, when peeling it off it left paper and all the glue stuck there. but nothing you can't remove with a little alcohol and elbow grease.

Other Thoughts: Great desktop replacement for those cramped spaces.

5 out of 5 eggsComparison review

Pros: I currently own the predecessor model. The only difference is the CPU. I've got the i5-460 and this one has the sandy bridge i5. Though the SB processor is 200mhz slower for clock speed, the architecture makes it roughly twice as fast as the i5 I have. :D This machine is probably the one I should have waited for.

The GTX 460M is equal to a desktop GTS 250 with 1.5GB of Vram. It's fast, stays cool, and easily handles any game at high settings. Crysis is the only game I lower the resolution for. :D

Cons: Can't see how it has any. The only downside I can see for my own and this one is the lack of a 1080p screen for movies and such. But the lack of a Bluray player is also part of that reason. Not that big of a deal to be honest. :D

Other Thoughts: I've upgraded my ram to 6GB; added a 4GB module. That's the only other physical difference between these two machines.

Overall, this machine will do what you want. It's powerful, fast, has a beautiful display and a full sized keyboard with a numpad on the side. :D That's the primary thing I was hoping for in whatever laptop I bought.

5 out of 5 eggsIgnore DeluxeGangsta

Pros: Extremely powerful for the price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: DeluxeGangsta claims to have had this model for a year, but this model has a Sandy Bridge i5... The Sandy Bridgy architecture was just released in 2011.
