Pros: Fast and Reliable. I play Skyrim (60FPS max with maxed settings, 2k HD pack, a ton of graphic enhancement mods and render distance enhancer mod), Guild Wars (Max settings 60+FPS) Assassins Creed III 45-60FPS on moderate settings, though I think very few set ups can really handle ACIII on highest settings with all the objects they have to render, basically moderate for ACIII is like Maxed with mods on Skyrim. Battlefield 3 on Ultra (80+FPS)
It a beast and with good RAM and a fast HDD or SSD you can blow the competition out of the water.
Cons: I only gave it four stars because for some odd reason the HDMI port stopped working after about two months of ownership. It still runs beautifully, though I miss not being able to hook up my TV for my Blu-Ray player I have installed in my PC. This is my first product with Galaxy, and though I am happy with the product (other than the HDMI going out) I am very frustrated with Galaxy customer support, I set on the phone for thirty minutes trying to reach a representative on their supposedly 27/7 number and got nobody. I have even tried several times before and left a message, still nothing. They could have done so much better on customer service. Other than that, it is amazing, I couldn't be happier.
Other Thoughts: Galaxy Customer Service....its better watching a monkey scratch his sack or a politician be truthful...READ FULL REVIEW
Great screen quality
Enough RAM to do what I need it too
More than enough HDD space to store data and videos for college
Fast and powerful processor for its price!
Its lasted 8 hours on power saving setting so far, I am of course using it the entire time.
I love the cobalt blue
The keys are nice and crisp, evenly spaced and I have no problem with the touch pad and buttons.
Its got intel wireless display, who doesn't love that?
Cons: Slower HDD than what I would like, but its still faster than I thought it would be, opening documents, watching video, etc.
The RAM is only 1066MHz, but I have not noticed any difference between that and 1333MHz. I guess the main difference would be synthetic tests.
Other Thoughts: For a $400 computer, there is nothing I can complain about. Its faster than I thought it would be, its light, the battery life is amazing and I love the fact it has HDMI and a USB 3.0 port. The audio is a lot better than what I could have hoped for and it has up too 1760MB of dynamic Video Memory. It doesn't have too many hiccups playing Command and Conquer. Overall, I think its a great buy for a $400 dollar computer, it has well surpassed what I was looking and hoping for. If you need a computer that can play videos efficiently, email, web browsing, etc. with a little bit of gaming, then this is the computer for you.READ FULL REVIEW
