This is a laptop
Pros: This laptop has enough power and storage to last me several years. The screen is large, the keyboard is quieter than others I've used and has a great feel to it. A dedicated video card handles games nicely. Skyrim detection suggested I use Ultra settings on this machine, however it would get a little choppy in parts, so I recommend high. The textures are a nice touch, and a usb3 port set it apart from other laptops in the price range
Cons: Battery life could be better.. fully charged it lasts about 3 hours and 20 minutes. Hard drive is realistically 682 gigs. No included operating system... it prompts you to burn backup discs. (4 required)
Overall Review: I got this laptop to do photo and video editing for work, as well wanting enough power to play somewhat current games. This meets all my needs and the pros outweigh any cons. As a photographer I need the monitor color to be calibrated correctly. Initially the screen is shifted to be rather blue. Easily fixable though. I was also concerned about the video card memory being advertised incorrectly, but it does detect at 2 gigs in the display settings.
