Great laptop, really is the sweet spot for the money.
Pros: Given that it's a gaming laptop it still has a simplistic design and well built. Performance is really good. I use it for business but my son already loaded some games and it ran them flawlessly. Screen really pops, a lot better than my 22 LCD at my office. Text is sharp and colors a vivid. Track pad is OK I don't use it much but the few times I did no complaints. Keyboard is good type on and I really like the rainbow lights. Battery is battery than expected, for office work with the screen dimmed a bit I get 4-5 hrs.
Cons: Keys on the number pad are too small. My other 17" laptop had regular size keys. Zero key on the number pad needs to be double width, really cumbersome using the number pad without looking. I keep hitting the up arrow key and messes up my workflow. They should reduce the size of the right CTRL key which I never use and move over the arrow keys and enlarge the zero key.
Overall Review: Other then the number pad situation it's a really is a good laptop. I would buy again.
