This laptop arrived yesterday and I have not been able to take my eyes off of the screen for at least fifteen hours. It is an absolutely amazing piece of hardware, and well worth the money I paid for it.
As someone who has spent the last three years using a 720p screen I have to say that the upgrade to the monitor on this laptop is absolutely astounding. The colours are vivid and powerful, when I went and played some of my games (which by the way running brilliantly) are was stunned at the quality of the screen, such a welcomed upgrade. It's actually almost as if I was introduced to an entirely new spectrum of colours.
Both the CPU and the Ram help to contribute to the incredible speed of the computer. It is quick, responsive, and there is literally no delay between double clicking and opening your programs. I've never used a laptop that was quicker than this on, and I'm loving it.
The sound system on it is about what you'd normally expect from a laptop. I use a speaker system with my laptop when playing games so it's not much of a problem for me.If you're not that big into the sound of the laptop like me, then you will have no problem with this one.
It is extremely quiet, even while playing games. My last laptop had a monster of a fan that could overpower even the television while playing games but you can not even notice the fans on this device.
Battery life is about 4 hours when in balanced power mode, which is great if you are travelling around and have nowhere to plug in.
The 1TB hard drive is phenomenal, I've never had so much data storage space in one machine before (discounting external hard drives of course ).
Overall, just from having the laptop for the past day, I am extremely pleased with the purchase and I believe that it is money very well spent. I'd recommend anyone looking for a decent price gaming laptop to consider buying this model
