Pros: Geforce 650m overclocks to 660m, DDR5 2gb
Ivy Bridge CPU..overclocks to 3.4ghz quad-core
backlit keyboard, BRIGHT lcd
aluminum casing, black, silver
NICE chiclet- curved keyboard.
Windows 8 64bit version WITH disk in box
1 year ON-SITE Dell warranty
Cons: The ONLY thing would be battery life. It has a flush mounted battery so its not bulging out but it only lasts a couple/few hours on internet ect. But then again its a 17 inch so get over it :)
Other Thoughts: I originally purchased a RE-furbished G73 and G74. (yes I had 2 of them) and those things are just an absolute WRECK as refurbs'. I'm not sure who is doing their repair work but I will NEVER touch one of them again. They both went back and I picked up this computer.
My goodness am I shocked!!! I cannot believe the hardware (and support) you get with this machine. Its 100% rock stable, runs cool, has very very limited bloatware, and plays ANY game out there.
I have ALWAYS been impressed with DELL laptops. Yes I know they are pre-manufactured BUT the aluminum casing XPS gaming ones (from years ago) ect were VERY reliable. In fact I still have my 9200 rocking away with an old single core and radeon 9700m in it.
I'm telling you, BUY THIS MACHINE if you are looking for a gaming on the go laptop that does NOT look like some kinda of "kiddie" toy. They really dont make the gaming XPS machines anymore and this is the replacement from what I understand. This is the SPECIAL EDITION version. JUST BUY IT!!! I cant say much more! :)
This review is from: Sony Bravia 32" Class (31.5" Diag.) 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV KDL-32BX421
Pros: Very light, low heat output. Sits flat on my desk with stand NOT required.
Multiple options for viewing pleasure
on/off light sensor (so you can really make it bright)
runs as a TRUE monitor once hooked up to vga port to video card
(was running this 1920x1200 but settled down to 1920x1080)
Actually has a GAMER and GRAPHICS setting
Cons: little thicker than the newer monitors
other than that....I got mine elsewhere for cheaper :( Love newegg though.
Other Thoughts: I was on the hunt for a name-brand COMPUTER-MONITOR worthy lcd-tv. This is'nt LED but the picture is crystal clear.
You will be hard pressed to find another lcd tv that looks and acts just like my old 27 inch monitor.
Best monitor ever :) buy it now!!!!
This review is from: ARCTIC P531 TRUE 5.1 Surround Sound USB Professional Gaming PC Headset
Pros: LOUD Booming Bass!!!
Shakes head with vibration.
Clear, digital 5.1 sound.
Makes Every game I have THAT much more enjoyable.
(especially Space Marine 40k, talk about BOOM)
Cons: Small earmuffs
May have to "bend" the headband to make it fit loose.
CHEAP fuzzy material, think i'm gonna find a way to add my own modification here as well later.
I put these in for an RMA but finally decided to "bend" the headband forcefully. Well this did in fact work but just be careful when you do it. Its a "metal" band that needs to be "bent" if yours is too tight. Hope this helps. (just be careful doing it! I unscrewed my headphone pads and grabbed from the "top" sides of the band. Grasp on the "S" and "D" of the big lettering ontop. This WILL fix the fit problem if its killing your ears. :)
Other Thoughts: I am a music composer so I have a seperate audio interface to write/compose music with. These headphones are in NO WAY designed for music authentic sound/music reproduction BUT for gaming they are fantastic.
I use my studio monitors for composition work-but those are designed for "flat" sounding work, these are for my "gaming". :)
Buy them, for the price you wont find a better setup for your true 5.1 sound and LOUD booming bass. Great product.
