Fantastic Machine 10/31/2013
I am thoroughly impressed with this machine. I bought this for school as well as some gaming on the side. However, my gaming on the side is not "light" by any stretch of the imagination. I bought this in order to play games such as Battlefield 4 when I'm not at home. So far through some light testing this machine is able to run BF4 at low at 1080p at about 60 fps.It can run it at a higher setting but I'm a competitive player so I need at least 60 fps. At 1600x900 (which doesn't look bad at all) my framerates literally double. The included mSata ssd is very nice and fast alongside the 1tb HDD. Overall this laptop blows all the competition out of the water at this point. When using a cooling pad the fans actually stay relatively quiet even after hours of gaming. Also, the screen is very bright and vibrant with fantastic viewing angles. And of course it is EXTREMELY thin and light!
Battery life is slightly below average for a Haswell.
Fans can get a bit noisy when doing everyday tasks.
Touch pad is average.
I would definitely reccommend this to anyone who's looking for a great gaming/productivity laptop in a small package.
