Amazing gaming laptop with new GTX10 series chipset for an incredible price. Most other brands are nearly 2-3x more expensive for this graphics card. Running everything smoothly with great frame rates and resolution.
Crashed a couple of times but that's Windows not the laptop (being used to Apple for many years, I've forgotten what blue screens were). It is heavy though, especially the power converter and of course the battery life isn't great. But you're not expecting it to be when you're buying a gaming laptop.
