Pros: +Fairly slim design for a gaming laptop
+Great backlit keyboard
+Msata port for upgrading storage
+Put in a SSD as your primary drive for optimal performance
+Very powerful components for the price
Cons: -Not a quad core, If youre going to do a lot of gaming, the dual core will likely bottle neck a lot of more intensive games (i.e. Star Citizen)
-Runs hot during intensive gaming (85-95 C), though I've never owned a laptop before this so I have little to compare it to.
-Track-pad is pretty difficult to use, especially when you accidentally utilize swipe commands in windows 8
Other Thoughts: Despite the cons, this laptop is still an excellent buy. Handles most new games at medium to high, older games and games that are optimized well can run on ultra. After a year of use my only regrets are not getting the 15.6 inch because it barely fits in my backpack for college, and not getting the quad core because it was a bit more expensive. These are my own faults so I can't take eggs away for that.
Also noticed a few dead pixels after a few days of use, however replacing the screen is a cheap fix if it ever becomes too much of a bother for me.
Pros: Its hard to believe i got this and a msi z77 G41 motherboard and this amount of ram for 99$ the motherboard is now 99$ and the ram is another 87$
The motherboard came with a rebate i think and the RAM i am pretty sure was on shellshocker. Either way i was extremely happy with the price

Pros: looks awesome
Blue light is bright but not too bright (in my opinion)
Enough room for my hardware
First case on my custom build
Cons: no window
i keep forgeting not to put to much stuff on top because of exhaust fan.
Other Thoughts: I love this case. Really the only thing that could make this better is to replace the side panel with a window panel and get some cathode lights to put inside to show off my hardware. Not that anyone other than myself will see it mostly...READ FULL REVIEW
