DELL Alienware AW15R2-1546SLV Gaming Laptop 6th Generation Intel Core i5 6300HQ (2.30 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M 2 GB GDDR5 15.6

Pros: This laptop is amazingly fast. It runs games on high to very high with few issues. FFXIV Heavensword benchmark on very high setting pulled in a 6134. Runs solid at 38 FPS. Games like DayZ ran a lot slower and setting had to be pretty low. Battlefield and COD ran at 38 to 56 FPS on very high. Games like DOTA and LoL ran everything at max setting beautifully. Hard drive is nice and big and works great. I've seen some reviews about screen issues with alienware laptops, specifically this one but I've had none. Even when pushing the computer hard the fans were never super loud. Most of the time I could sit in class and it not be too loud to use. This computer has been worth every penny so far. Computer is very well built and air circulation in the laptop is superb.

Cons: As stated in the title - Driver issues...It took me a few days to get everything working perfectly because of driver issues. Dont' get me wrong, this should not keep you from buying the laptop. Just know you're going to have to do a little work to get it working perfectly. The only other con I would list is the battery life can be very low. You should expect this with a gaming computer though.

Other Thoughts: - Buy a laptop cooling mat ( Doesn't have to be a super huge, loud, crazy LED one either.) I have a single small fan one that is super for when I'm gaming- Buy a SSD for fun. The HDD that it comes with works great but putting a SSD in it for the OS is a nice touch on the speed side for booting and windows related operations.- Extra RAM is fun but not needed for average gaming.

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect for me 10/04/2010

This review is from: Microsoft Xbox 360 4 GB Black

Pros: Read Thoughts

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The 4 Gig. might not be enough space for most people who will use their 360 for videos, music, and downloading game add-ons but for me its great. Haven't had any problems and I'm loving the style and features of the 360 4 Gig. Good buy for anyone on a budget.
