Pros: Great Price for mid range gaming computer
Comes with Blu-ray burner optical drive
Plenty of HDD storage
Great enough RAM for gaming
Quad cord i7 instead one of those Dual Core i7

Cons: Take your chances with refurbished laptop
Need a SSD for faster boot and gaming
Most likely never use the Blu-ray burner optical drive
No USB Type C connector
GTX 1050 Ti laptop will be preform about the same or better, but cheaper priced
And GTX 1060 laptop will priced about the same, but preform well better

Other Thoughts: Look this "gaming" laptop never try to be a "tower" gaming desktop computer nor an Alienware high-end gaming laptop. It's comes with GTX 960M, the M for mobile, so it's lower spec version of the desktop GTX 750Ti. The GTX 960M use about 60W of power compare to 75W for the GTX 750 Ti. Same goes for the CPU, it's an i7 4720HQ that use 47W of power. So it leaves about 28W for the screen, motherboard, RAM, and drivers, which are plenty enough power for them.

5 out of 5 eggs Got excactly what I ordered, an Alienware Alpha with SteamOS installed on it and a Steam Controller. 07/21/2016

This review is from: DELL Desktop Computer Alienware ASM100-980 Intel Core i3 4170T (3.20 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 500 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 2 GB GDDR5 SteamOS

Pros: Very powerful for this compact size of a computer
Great price with a PAX coupon code.
Great for traveling as it can easily hook up to a HDMI input on most TV
Easy Internet setup as it has both Ethernet port and WiFi adapter built-in
Good enough graphics that I can play most games at medium setting
Easily overclock the GPU using 3rd part software
Can be upgraded to a faster i5 or i7 CPU

Cons: Only 1 video output. The other HDMI is for video pass through only
No way of upgrading the onboard GTX 860M GPU
Doesn't come with a keyboard nor mouse

Other Thoughts: I had a month long vacation oversea and I need a good enough gaming machine. I found the Stream controller, ok. I ended up using a compact mechanical keyboard and a Logitech G600 mouse for my PC gaming need. I did add another 4GB and replace the HDD with a SSD drive. I also replaced the SteamOS with Windows 10 as I mainly use it for playing World of Warships. The game plays great on it when I had a good Internet connection. I have not need to upgrade the CPU on computer. The GPU is fast as the GTX 750Ti that I had installed on Pentium G3258 computer that I setup for a friend of mine.

Pros: The input charging port on the battery is micro-b, so it comes with a micro-b to USB cable. I can switch the same cable around on the output USB port to charge my micro-b cellphone.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: A simple push button to show the battery level. I used this on my recent airplane trip when my flight was delay. Charge up both my cellphone and using it's own priority USB cable, a Nintendo 3DS.
