Pros: - 6th Gen quad-core i7 and 970M do a great job at 1080P
- Runs GTA V all maxed at 80 FPS @ 1080P, Rainbow Six Siege runs at 90 or so frames @1080P.
- Very thin at .78 inches thick, and it only weighs 5 pounds. The last gaming laptop I had was nearly a couple inches thick and weighed 10 pounds. GS72 was also cheaper with better internals.
- 512 GB PCIe SSD in a laptop without it costing $2400 is a godsend, fast and plenty of space to put AAA titles on it, plus you get an additional 1 TB 7200 RPM HDD to fill with whatever else you want.
- Good steel-series keyboard and came with great extras, a nice backpack and comfy neck pillow.
- Price was great for what you get, I got mine for $1499.
- Really solid build quality and has a subtle beauty to it
Cons: - Battery life is bad, 2 hours, but what do you expect when you pack all that power in a small frame. Its not any better or worse than the big laptop I had before.
- It does get quite hot when under load, I wouldn't recommend putting it directly on your lap as you play. A blanket works well to insulate your legs, or just put it on a table. The heat also mostly stays near the back away from your hands.
- Wish it came with a laptop sleeve, but mine came with a $150 backpack and a neck pillow, so I really can't complain.
- Also wish it had the 6GB version of the 970M, but oh well, still runs games maxed at 70+ frames.
Other Thoughts: I love it so far, I've wanted one for years, since the GS60 and GS70 came out. GS72 is definitely an improvement.
If you buy one, expect a thin, light powerhouse with fantastic build quality, try to get one on sale.
Pros: When I travel for work, I still have to do work...this monitor makes it possible. When you are used a mulitmonitor setup, going back to one on the laptop is hard. Lightweight, reliable, easy to setup. It is always in my bag.
