Pros: fast, seems well built, runs cool, tons of storage space, big beautiful screen, solid keyboard

Cons: slightly on the heavy side (but expected for desktop replacement)

Overall Review: This was an upgrade from and Asus GT60 with 4Gb of ram and GTX 260 1Gb video card. The old system still runs great and plays most games on high without much of a problem, but it was time for an upgrade. This new system is a beast, and I am amazed at how big of a difference there is playing some of the old games. Skyrim, Battlefield 3, and some of the older games look different.... better somehow. I haven't used the over clocking tool yet, and probably will not need to for a long time. With the Killer Network card, my pings have dropped and actually tend to get into online matches quicker then with the old rig. The metal below the keyboard is a very welcome addition and keeps pretty cool even with my wrist and palms resting on it. The build quality was the only thing I had any question about since the last laptop was a tank and I had dropped it multiple times (even in a parking lot), with nothing more than a few scratches on the case. So far it is holding up and even had a bit of a scare when my 2 year old (35 lbs worth) desided to walk across the keyboard as I was unboxing it and had it opened on the bed. I think this is going to be around and kicking for some time to come. EXTREMELY SATISFIED!!!!

Pros: Great price, good brand, fast shipping

Cons: none yet

Overall Review: Ordered for x-mas gift, not opened and used yet. Great price for 32 Gb card, and the brand name is known for quality memory.This card was even cheaper then the Team 32 Gb card i ordered earlier in the year that has all ready failed.
