Finally laptop that doesn’t give me grief. At first i was nervous about buying a laptop online but this machine has been a life saver, its fast, powerful enough to run my software (i do alot of gaming, music editing and video editing) and it hasn’t failed me yet. I recommend this machine to anyone works a lot with various form of digital media.
I bought this for my son to replace an hp elitebook that was no longer keeping up with his gaming. As soon as it turned up i pulled out the 1tb drive included and put in a spare samsung 840 evo ssd drive to make this beast even faster. For anyone wishing to try this at home it needs a t5 torx screwdriver to remove the bottom. Compared to the laptop it replaced it does run quieter and cooler whilst having superb graphics performance. He is currently playing wow on the highest quality graphics settings and still getting a good frame rate. I personally use macbook pros and the build quality is not as great as those but still very good for the price range. The touch screen is a bit of a gimmick and not something that will be well used by us but it still works well. As with most gaming laptops it is not something you will be carrying around with you a lot, it is big and heavy compared to most laptops out there, but this is meant to be a desktop replacement that can be easily moved when needed. All-in-all an excellent gaming laptop.

Only 1 real flaw, otherwise bargain for the price. Great laptop all round, fantastic processor, graphics card and display + 8gb is sufficient ram. Personally i love the aesthetic and build quality is solid, audio is great, subwoofer is a nice little extra. Would of been a 5 star rating except for a few niggling issues,1. Omg why- okay, i can’t emphasize this enough, points 2 and 3 are nothing, you don’t even have to read those. This is the only point that should affect your purchase decision and believe me it’s huge. This is the only legitimate reason to potentially not buy this laptop. This thing comes with a 5400 rpm hdd. . It bottlenecks the entire system and makes everything run slow. I can’t understand the reasoning behind this, sure it’s 1tb so thanks for all the storage, but it’s useless. If you’re spending this much on a laptop you probably want it to run buttery smooth, and it doesn’t. Not while this thing infests it, if you buy this laptop make sure to budget some money for an ssd of a suitable size for your needs, i’d recommend an evo from samsung, 840, 850 etc. Once you swap the drives this laptop sings.
Great but research a little first. Well, there are a few faults, but overall a generally awesome buyi’ve found that there are honestly so many perks of the laptop that it balances out with the bad. The bad:-slow hard drive – generally ruins the speed of everything, even though you have an i7 processor. -no backlighting – i didn’t even know that this laptop came with backlighting, yet my screensaver specifically says that backlighting keyboard is there, after doing a little research, i found that for an extra £50 or so, you can get the better version, one where you specifically have more ram, as well as other good features such as backlighting. -poor speaker placement – the speakers are placed at the very front of the laptop, meaning that if you are sitting with the laptop. Lap, then you cannot hear the thing you are trying to actually listen to. -easy to scratch material – whilst i write this, i have had the laptop for 2 weeks, and the front is completely ruined from scratches, it is no longer perfect as i had tried so hard to keep it. I keep it in a laptop case which is padded, and have never dropped it, yet there are still scratches. -external sub woofer – the bass is very low unless you carry along the portable subwoofer which is quite large, so doesn’t fit in my laptop bag.
