Pros: great value for the money with the hardware it has and the weight. Same price as other brands but has extra 128 Gb SSD and is lighter.
GTX 770M ,128gb SSD, 2.3 KG, 86WHR battery. full size keyboard, no bloatware beside the MS office trial.
Cons: the lid color ( yellow submarine) and the silver rims of the display lid make it look cheap( no need to deduct any eggs as i knew what i am buying - ill get some carbon skin and wrap the yellow lid).
MOST IMPORTANT ONS IS WINDOWS 8( is C@#%^.) waiting for free upgarde to 8.1 when is released.
Other Thoughts: It does not come with an antivirus program installed.
Even if is made mostly of plastic its built quality is good ( coming from a macbook pro)
the fans get loud when gaming but not unbearable anyway i game with a headset.
temperatures are ok only game i tested so far until i install steam was Crysis 2 with 55 fps at ultra settings, and average of 69°C-CPU and 63°C-GPU . The laptop does not get hot very hot on the bottom part and while gaming on a desk has good ventilation due to higher battery legs.
PCMARK 7 - 5607 points. ALL CPU cores stay around 3,3 Ghz when plugged in.
Do not turn on the Gigabyte SmartManager - Smart Cooling on wile gaming- it will throttle your CPU to 1.5 Ghz and decrease the performance but is good wile running on battery as its saves power..
Overall a very good buy- i was debating between P25W - and other brands/barebones with same specs. I chose this one for the weight , battery and the extra SSD all for same price.
