Pros: Great laptop.. great but not the best. This was my first refurbed laptop purchase and was only slightly disappointed, more on that later. For pros I have to say it arrived looking brand new and the screen is super clear with no dead pixels or strange banding. The graphics card (gtx670mx) is one of the best simply because you can safely overclock this thing to the max and still be at a good temp (57 Celsius at 100%) and if that makes you uncomfortable add a cooling pad. With the max overclock I get 40-50 fps in Far Cry 3 on ultra and 30-40 fps in BF4 ultra (without super sampling). Lots of storage and room to add more if you need it. RAM is adequate and also room for upgrading if you so desire.

Cons: When I said I was only slightly disappointed I meant this: When I received my laptop it came in case tight cardboard... no pageantry here. Hell, not even bubble wrap!! I'm surprised it wasn't damaged upon arrival. I also had to "repair" some of the IRREMOVABLE Asus bloatware as it was not functioning properly. An easy fix just repair from the Asus support site. The only other con I have is that this thing is NOT lightning quick no matter what any other review states. "In game" performance you could say is lightning quick but overall no. The thing holing this laptop back is the hard drive. It's painfully slow. 26-40 second start-up time says so. So feel free to take advantage of the extra storage slots and add a SSHD or a full blown SSD to boot from, the former being a ver cost effective alternative to your stock 5400 rpm HD.

Other Thoughts: I've had this for over 5 months now and no new problems! Still have it overclocked and about to do some upgrading on this beast (SSD boot drive, 32GB RAM kit) this thing will be barking up the big boy tree soon! Would buy again in a heartbeat.
