CyberpowerPC Fangbook III HX6-146 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4710MQ (2.50GHz) 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 120GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 4 GB GDDR5 15.6

Pros: 1) Price: the ONLY laptop I've found that\s around the $1k price point that is really a gaming laptop!
2) Way better than the ASUS ROG an other models I have tried and returned! this was the first laptop that I received that had 8.1 already installed and ALL the drivers working!
3) Two hard drives, awesome 4gb video card, i& processor, the stats are awesome.
4) Great heat venting system.
5) Plenty of ports and in all the right places, no ports sticking out of the back panel.
6) Amazing sound speakers built in that has an actual woofer in it too with bass control software!
7) Display angles on the screen are good, it's seems better than most anyways....
8) G1 G2 G3 function buttons are nice to have!
9) Not once has it slowed down, stuttered, crashed, or given me any kinds of problems and \i run ALL KINDS of games, graphics software, desktop publishing, web design, etc on it, rock solid machine.
10) Runs incredibly quiet unless you turn the turbo fan on.

Cons: 1) Horrible keyboard layout. This is the only real negative about this machine as I see it but it's so bad I took an egg off the rating because of it. IF you are a user that can't handle the SHIFT buttons being the same size as the rest of the alphabet keys then you're going to have fits with this thing like i do. This is really bad because when you're playing a game , well, the \shift key is really freaking important: run, stop, etc. it controls movement in most FPS. I really hope they can upgrade this later for people. its bad.
2)other thing is windows 8 which i hate but you can't fight progress right?

Other Thoughts: When you go to do windows updates on this thing DO NOT update the INTEL HD drivers from microsoft on this thing. Go to the intel site instead or simply don't install them at all, you won't need them,trust me. However do keep your nvidia drivers up to date with the built-in software. Activate this machine right away. the key code is on a sticker on the bottom of the machine. I also found it useful to install the IRST intell rapid tech driver in there too off the driver DVD. Other than the incredibly freaking lame SHIFT keys, this laptop rocks! Especially for only $1000

Pros: great price

Cons: wifi driver unstable.
sound card driver unstable
video card is horrible in 2D applications as it is NOT a dedicated card, only a 3D card boost on top of a 2D card.
Video drivers unstable.

As you will see from other reviewers, this machines is really tricky when it comes to drivers. I hope ASUS will come up with a better chipset driver for windows 8. I'm thinking about putting win 7 pro in it and I'll bet it works way better.

Other Thoughts: Unless you are a tech genius pass on this one.
