MSI GT Series GT70 2OC-017US Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40 GHz) 24 GB Memory Super RAID (128GB SSD*2 RAID 0+ 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M 3GB GDDR5 17.3

Pros: Nearly seamless switching between integrated and high-performance graphics, very powerful graphics processors (even the integrated runs several games), very fast quad-core Haswell i7 processor, absurdly large amount of RAM, plenty of SSD space and even more plentiful standard disk space, 4 audio I/O, BD/DVD/CD burner drive, very clear speakers, 3 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort ports, extra clearance for fans and airflow, 2 cooling exhaust ports, nearly silent under light load, touch panel includes a button to turn fan up to max, etc etc

Cons: Integrated webcam DOES NOT WORK for Skype without a lot of tweaking, computer will not install or boot into Ubuntu, microphone is low-quality

Other Thoughts: This laptop is quite impressive, and aside from some issues I've had with Windows 8, performs exactly as I'd like. The keyboard (which is divided into 3 separate sections for customized lighting) always grabs attention.
