5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop, little to complain about

Pros: * Form factor - The best thing about it; very light, slim, sturdy little laptop. It really hides its specs well.

* Screen - The next thing you notice about it. Anti-glare, a little brighter than average, great viewing angles, 1080p resolution. It is good enough to use outside, with easy legibility in pretty much anything but direct sunlight.

* Keyboard - I am used to small laptops so this may be only a pro for people who have used them in the past. I typed at basically full speed the moment I started using it. Layout and keys are good enough, the backlight has two settings: too bright and way too bright. Because of that and a few other reasons, the keyboard will make its way onto the con list as well...

* Performance - I purchased this laptop to mostly supplement my workstation while I am away from it. It needed to be able to run some virtual machines, photoshop, gimp, and compile programs simultaneously sometimes. I also wanted to be able to do some gaming during my off time. Well imagine my surprise when I did some benchmarks and realized it is almost as fast or faster than my workstation in basically every category.

I have an i5-2500k and a 580 in my desktop, the i7 in this laptop is about 30% faster, and the GPU can be within 20% of the 580 sometimes, in some rare games it will be 10% faster than the desktop 580 0_0

I was not aware the new improvements in the haswell and maxwell stuff was so significant. Even on battery it can push out a shaky 60FPS on 1080p/ultra in skyrim. Under those conditions the CPU is limited to a paltry 1.5ghz. For some reason the battery seems to give up, and it goes to 15 fps after 10 or 15 minutes of battery skyrim. Still a fun test.

* Cooling - The cooling solution they went with works quite well. With fans on auto or quiet mode it will idle at about 50-60C on battery. If you put the fans to 100% (very easy with their included software) it can bring the idle temps to 40C quickly. The heat pipes and syncs in it have good passive cooling properties, with the fans cranked up it can really expel heat. It is overkill on battery, but badly needed plugged in under load. In artificial benchmarks the temps will go up to 85C, gaming it mostly sits around 75-80C. For a mobile processor those are good temps, I was expecting 95C.

Cons: * Battery - I should start off by saying that if you are seriously considering this laptop, you probably don't care about battery life that much. At least you shouldn't. It is a 125 watt laptop with a 47 watt/hour battery. There is a version out in the wild somewhere with a ~65 watt/hour battery at the expense of the mechanical hdd. I couldn't find it so I settled with this, but I am not sure if it is worth the loss of storage space.

I didn't care about battery life, but all that being said it is starting to get to me. Sometimes you just want to chill out and watch a movie or browse the web without having to be plugged in. Plus it is a much more enjoyable lap experience because it doesn't get very hot on battery.

I average around 3 hours of battery life, 4 if the laptop totems are smiling on me that day. The GPU and CPU are so power hungry that adjusting screen brightness, power mode, keyboard backlight, volume, wifi on/off, have roughly 0 effect on the battery life. The settings are there only to make you feel important.

The battery life wouldn't be such a hard pill to swallow if the power brick wasn't so huge.

* Keyboard - It is a good keyboard, but build quality suffers a bit. Some keys clank, and the enter key seems to grind and chomp against something once in a while. It can be a grating experience sometimes. The backlight is also too bright, it is good if you are worried about aircraft landing on you, but for day to day use the brightness doesn't make any sense at all. At night it just needs to be a dim illumination, not so bright that you need to brighten the screen to compensate. This may be my subjective opinion however.

* Build quality - If you only looked at the price of the laptop you would expect a much better build quality. It is understandable considering the components they put it in, the case is where some compromises were made to meet the price point. It isn't bad by any means, but here and there is a seam popping up, or something flexing that shouldn't be flexing. All in all it is sturdy, but not perfect. Also the metal they use on the top attracts fingerprints easily and you can only get them off using a liquid of some kind.

Other Thoughts: This laptop is essentially perfect. It is only possible with the power saving advancements of newer architecture. Perhaps it is still a generation ahead of its time, I think after another die shrink from both intel and nvidia these laptops will feel much less compromisey.

The decision to purchase this should be easy, because for the price and form factor it is your only option. You can spent a lot more and get a slightly more refined razr blade with less ports, or spend a little less and get a chunky 13" clevo with the same specs.

It is also pretty easy to repaste the gpu and cpu if you so choose. I am pretty sure it doesn't break any warranty stickers, gigabyte doesn't enforce them anyway unless you break something while working on it.

Also I wish I had spent a bit more and went with the bigger ssd. It is easy to upgrade, but it will be a pain to reinstall now that I have everything just how I like it.

Even though it has 4gigs of gddr5 it isn't a kepler gpu, some 800 series are and there was some worrying and confusion surrounding this laptop. I can tell you that it is maxwell based on GPU-z.

Here is the windows 8.1 experience index score done through the command line and powershell (note that the GPU score is for the integrated graphics, not the 860m because that stays off):

CPUScore: 8.1
D3DScore: 5.4 (integrated intel graphics)
DiskScore: 8.2
GraphicsScore: 5.2 (integrated intel graphics)
MemoryScore: 8.1 (stock ram)
WinSPRLevel: 5.2

5 out of 5 eggsA Unchained Beast, with Ultrabook size

Pros: This laptop is incredibly powerful. Except for the MUCH more expensive Razer Blade, which is sold out in so many places, you cannot get a faster 14" Laptop.

14" is truly a size I've fallen in love with. Great for carrying in a backpack, but the screen doesn't feel *small* like a 13.3.

This laptop is overloaded with great features. It takes a few design ques from the Macbook Pro, but it is indeed it's own laptop. The two cooling ports are a great idea. It is aesthetically beautiful.

Almost all the laptop is Metal, and it is very light. It comes with a leather case even!

The Warranty is 2 full years.

They keyboard is even backlight, and great to type on.

Bloatware is minimal, and uninstalls painlessly. The Gigabyte update utility does a better job of getting you the latest laptop than anything I've seen from Asus, Acer, and MSI.

The 128GB mSata drive really does boost performance. You would not believe it's main storage *is* a 5400 RPM harddrive.

Cons: No Optical drive. I have noticed I don't really need one built in at all as of late, digital distribution really is here.

Fans can be loud.

May take a little tweaking to get the best battery life for light use.

Other Thoughts: I wonder how this would do with 16GB 2133mhz dual channel ram and a 1TB 840 EVO instead of the mSata and traditional hard drive. I imagine it would be a incredible experience for years to come, not that I have any doubts it will be the way it's shipped!
