Pros: The specs for this computer are what you might expect from a $1200+ computer. The processor is not much better than any other $1000 computer, but the graphics card is simply in another league. Outside of the y50 series, I couldn't find a laptop with a discrete card that rated equal or higher for less than $1500, which is definitely saying something. This is a wonderful gaming laptop that will run new games on very high settings, especially once the drivers are updated (see this in cons, too).
Cons: It's heavier than it says in the description. That being said, it's still lighter weight than a lot of laptops in its class, but it's more like 6.5 pounds. Might match the described price if you removed the battery, but then you won't be carrying it anywhere anyway, right?
The keys are just a little bit small, especially the right shift, backspace, and enter keys. This makes room for the numpad, which is great - if that's something you use. I certainly don't.
For some reason, Geforce Experience doesn't think the drivers are outdated. They are - you can get them, too, but it requires a workaround involving the changing of certificates, which I'm sure plenty of people will not want to do. However, this is a fairly new laptop, so it's understandable that some things might not be fully ironed out yet. I expect the new drivers to be easily accessible within a couple months.
Other Thoughts: If money isn't an object, you can get a better computer than this. But if it is, save yourself a few hundred bucks over whatever equivalent Razer/MSI/Alienware you were planning to pick up, because there's simply no reason to pay more for the same thing.READ FULL REVIEW
