Pros: Very nice screen.
Fast SSD for boot up.
Not a ton of bloatware.
Most games run at med with some high settings at between 80-100 fps. Not shabby at all.
Very impressive battery life. 5+ hours (Rating battery life when gaming is irrelevant, you should always be on charger gaming.)
6th gen quad core processor. Worth every penny to get the quad-core over the 6th gen dual cores.
Cons: The only con for this laptop is the camera is horrible on both photos and video.
Other Thoughts: Not taking an egg off for the camera because honestly if you want hd quality photos/video then buy a hd webcam to use with this thing. For software, web, app development this laptop works extremely well. For the price it is almost impossible to find another laptop with the specs this one has. On a side note, download a free hard drive cloning software so that way you can copy the partitions from the SSD to the HDD. Once that is done you are all set, programs that involve emulation and such should be installed on the SSD, all other programs will be fine on the HDD for space saving. I would install all games on the HDD because honestly aside from the game loading it won't make a difference and shouldn't take up valuable SSD space. You are literally saving anywhere between 200-300 buy going with this over one with an i7 with a slightly faster gpu and no SSD. If you are looking for a laptop for school, business and want the ability to play some games when you aren't around your home computer, buy this immediately, you will not be disappointed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Big enough to allow for excellent airflow.
Airflow allows light overclocking without upgrading to water cooling.
Fans are very effective and very quiet.
Thing looks like a beast.
Cons: None whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case for anyone building their own system. It is heavy but that is to be expected which is why I didn't list that as a con. If you are a gamer and want a very nice case with excellent airflow, buy this case and snag an extra 250mm fan for the side and you won't regret it. I overclocked my FX-8350 to 4.6ghz and the processor hasn't gone over 50 degrees Celsius when gaming on max settings. For the price it is selling for right now I would buy this case all day long, it's worth double in my opinion.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent Card! EVGA hit a homerun with this one. Owned for going on 2 years and it still performs above par for the newer games. Fast memory and reliable.
Cons: Memory size. If this card was offered in a 2 or 3gig version I wouldn't even consider upgrading this card.READ FULL REVIEW
