Pros: - It's the most powerful laptop you can buy, for anywhere near the price
- Never failed on me
Cons: - generates some heat
Other Thoughts: I bought this refurbished for a great price, it came to me new, got lucky I guess. The thing is a champion. The thing is powerful and can run anything on the web without stutters. Came with win7 support. You can hear the fan go up and down in speeds with stress, but overall, outperforms anyone I knows laptop. You can even play newer games on this but you may want to stop after 15 minutes. It will overheat, it is a laptop after all. In the end, I am super happy that I bought this.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: -Card performed well
-Good fan design with low noise
Cons: -Didn't work right away!
-Died after 2 years for no reason
-Gigabyte sh*fted me on rebate
-Terrible customer service and employees
Other Thoughts: I bought this card off newegg. It with a 30 dollar rebate. So I went through all the rebate cr*p and sent it in. Then I get an email from Gigabye two months later saying "you did not enclose the sales reciept, so you get no refund." I am 100% sure that enclosed the reciept I remember printing it off newegg, folding it up and putting it in the envelope perfectly. So I call Gigabyte about it, the rudest f ing indian a hole picks up the phone, basically his greeting was like "what the f do you want" in his tone of voice... so i give him all these stupid g** d*** tracking numbers and whatever before he says "Oh, theres nothing I can do, our rebates are handled by an outside agency on a contract basis". Then I ask him why the rebate paperwork was not returned to me if you are going to try and sh*ft me over 30 dollars , and he's just like, "I dont know, theres nothing I can do". I tell him "you can do your f ing job moron, an then hang up on him.
So about the card, when I first put it in my computer, it wouldn't boot. I am a computer tech and I know what I am doing and how to install cards. Then after an hour, magically it booted. It was weird. I did not do anything significant to make it suddenly work.
Since then I've been really happy with the card it ran all my games at 1080p fluidly, very good performance. Until yesterday when it just died for no reason. My computer was idle when suddenly it rebooted. "windows was not shut down correctly". Next time I turned it on, frozen desktop (frozen computer). Then it would not even boot after that just a looping reset, and I could tell it was the video card immediately.
Now I have to deal with gigabyte again for the RMA and I am not looking forward to it I am still really p'd off at their customer service. I just called them and had the same experience with some indian a hole maybe even the same guy, does not even try to be friendly or pleasant or helpful. Just terrible service with bad employees that need to be fired for their attitudes, get it together Gigabyte... I won't buy another product from you, and I am buying computer parts all the time, so screw you.
