4 out of 5 eggsOne of the lucky ones?

Pros: Fast, graphics are great, runs well, no real issues, good product for the money.

Cons: heavy (watcha gonna do?), my webcam does not work, windows 8 really is a dog (but that is Window's fault),company's reputation made this process nerve racking. Track pad location is just dumb considering this is a gaming machine, but easily deactivated.

Other Thoughts: I described my purchase to my wife like this: I got a powerful laptop for a great price. However, it appears that 1 out of 5 machines Ibuypower sends out malfunctions in some spectacularly bad way. So, considering my only issue is a non-functioning webcam (which I would not use anyway) means I rolled the dice and lucked out. Still, this company needs to work harder at putting out a functioning product, you can't throw a rock on the Internet without running into a non-functioning Ibuypower computer fresh out of the box.

Why am I typing all this for what is essentially a good review? Because the anxiety stinks. Every odd blip, every time a game crashes, anything at all and you're left wondering.. did I NOT luck out, is my machine about to crash spectacularly? Not a pleasant feeling.

5 out of 5 eggsBuilt For Games And HD Videos

Pros: Full HD games & videos plays excellent. All current games with high graphics works good for example crisis 3. Only one game lacked video performance till date was Witcher 2. Boots up in like 8-10 seconds thanks to its SSD drive. But I think what packs real power is its 3 GB Nvidia video card and 16 GB RAM with i7 processor. And top of all these I could buy this in $1255 with discount of almost $350 on thanksgiving was truly amazing. Good value for money. I wrote this review after using it enough for months. After this experience I can say it can guts to compete with other brands too.

Cons: It heats up in approx. 30 min to 1 hr with the inbuilt cooling fan on. So I think kind of cooling improvement will revolutionize this.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Very fast and sleek. Games play well and at high performance settings. I'm very happy with my purchase, overall.

Windows 8 is a VERY big change from previous windows, but once you get used to it and explore, there's not much of a difference for average users, as far as I see.

Cons: When I first turned on the computer, I received a blue screen KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR (I keep forgetting to write down the I/O status). The problem is persistent, so I did a boot scan with AVAST and a Chkdsk /f /r and found no issues. It's either defective hardware or failing RAM. I have the 3 year warranty, so I'll be sending my computer back to be looked over/replaced.

The computer is still usable, but getting a blue screen every other time I start my new computer is a little disappointing.

I wanted to re-install windows at some point, but found that an OS disc is not supplied with the computer and I see no option to do a re-install from the partition. Also kinda frustrating.

Other Thoughts: I know my Cons section is bigger than the Pros, but it never feels right when it works. It only feels wrong when it doesn't.

It's a good computer. A definite step-up from my last, but I doubt that would be the same for most other people. If you're looking for a well-rounded gaming laptop, this is a moderately good choice.

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy with product!

Pros: Nice plastic color. Sorry could not think of anything else.

Cons: Brand new crashed on the very first Power On!, then 50%. Half of the times in turns on ok, the other times it shows an error message on a black screen. I do not trust this computer anymore.

1 out of 5 eggsUtterly Disappointed

Pros: Excellent hardware for the price. Computer boots in seconds (when it doesn't crash) and is aesthetically pleasing. Was glad to not have to deal with the interface problems that other users reported.

Cons: But instead the computer just keeps crashing outright... Of course, this is after I initially started a computer whose first message to me was to tell me that Windows had not been installed properly... In addition, I cannot write anything to the 1TB HDD which means I also cannot transfer files from my old computer as the 128GB SDD is too small to hold it all. For whatever reason, I also had to re-run the manufacturer's driver CD a second time as I suppose they didn't take the first time. Oh, and there was also no product key included for Windows 8 (or the copy used by the manufacturer was used beyond it's computer limit and I'm running a technically illegal copy) so now I have to either buy a new product for an additional $149.99 or suffer the incessant and unceasing prompting for the product key every time I log in. Honestly, this computer was a great idea but I had hoped for a better first impression from the manufacturer seeing as this computer is essentially useless with it's frequent crashing and inaccessible HDD...

Other Thoughts: Could've been a great deal if it wasn't unusable. Also, it's worth noting that I have not yet contacted iBUYPOWER to see about remedying this situation so everyone please keep your fingers crossed for me... I just hope their tech/customer support is better their product...

4 out of 5 eggsbeast

Pros: had it for about a week and it runs everything nicely windows 8 takes some getting use to but it aint bad, looked into asus g75 before, this a bit cheaper with almost the same specs

Cons: the trackpad is write underneath the space bar and not far from wasd keys, if ur a hardcore gamer like me u will keep touching the track pad and it messes up any precise movements with the mouse you might need at critical times.

Other Thoughts: 1 egg off for the placement of the track pad its not even centered with the laptop its underneath the wasd keys how annoyinng i gotta place like a paper or something underneath my hand

5 out of 5 eggsAwesoe

Pros: Great specs for the money. Was a nice hidden cyber monday special in an otherwise dull newegg holiday.

Cons: Its huge. I also wish the speakers were a bit bette, though i am sure they are good for a laptop.

Other Thoughts: Ive owned two ibuypower products. Service is excellent. I used to shy away from these types of brands but i am coming to the conclusion that the little guy understands gamers better than the big names.

5 out of 5 eggsAn npic machine.

Pros: The overall gaming performance, simply put, Perfect. Skyrim - Ultra, Witcher 2, Ultra (however, if played at the laptop's max resolution i did see minor video lag, tweaking just the resolution removed the delays) those are just a couple of the higher end games I've tested. So far with a 4 hour duration i have yet to have the laptop get "hot". Window's 8 has worked VERY smoothly so far. I have yet to notice any decrease in speed after transferring my old machines data (music, Pictures, games, ect.)

Cons: I noticed that every time you do a fresh boot, the machine attempts to boot via network... this was mildly frustrating... however, easy to fix, during BOOTUP go into the BIOS and change the boot order making sure that the OS drive is primary, then your data drive, DVD, and last the network. save and restart, open the config for the "bigfoot boot agent" and change its boot priority to boot from the BIOS setup up. problem solved. So far that has been my only con.

1 out of 5 eggsThanks... For more troubles

Pros: Haven't been able to use it...set to boot to network and Bluetooth and wireless enables and syncing something thanks for shipping it with the battery attached and not disabling the network adapter

Cons: To many to list at this point very frustrated I received a compromised laptop that I spent 1400$ on

Other Thoughts: Refund + compensation this is utterly inexcusable
