I am extremely happy with this laptop and it handles everything you throw at it.
I have been using it for gaming and it seems to run much smoother when plugged in and is a bit jolty when just on the battery

I ordered this laptop as it is the best specification for the money.

The graphics card is better than the standard Nvidia 630m, the memory is massive - both RAM and HDD. I am happy with the screen although it is glossy and reflective but i have nothing negative to say about the sound which is excellent.

Its well made and feels sturdy apart from the disk drive which is relatively flimsey.

I would recommend this laptop to anyone who wants to do more that just surf the internet and if you want to future proof yourself for a few years.

While looking for a new laptop, I did a lot of research and hunting around, and this seemed absolutely ideal. Great looks, great specs, great reviews and a very reasonable price (which I notice has gone up significantly, so I was lucky). Out of the box, I was thrilled by its looks and its feel in a way, I must say, that I never am when it comes to machinery. It has a whopping 8GB RAM, 1TB harddrive, and Nvidia graphics card...oh, so much going for it. But it was not love, and this came down to three very overwhelming reasons.
1 - The keyboard. I'd read (and expected) brilliant things about the keyboard, it's comfort and ease, and it was real selling point for me. The keyboard on the machine I got, however, was dull, unresponsive and stiff. I can speed type - or could, until I got this machine, and continually found myself having to go back and insert spaces and letters (the space bar was particularly awful) and it made typing an absolute chore, and this was one of the main purposes of the laptop for me
2 - the tracking pad. While it wasn't as erratic as I'd feared it would be, it's not exactly smooth and doesn't always direct the cursor in the direction I want, while swipes also, repeatedly bring up a random Windows 8 "tile" out of nowhere, so I have to keep finding my way back to the desktop.
3 - Windows 8. I know, I know, it's unfair to judge a laptop on its operating system, but Windows 8 is so invidious, so obnoxious, it's like a virus infecting the machine rather than a utility. Whatever I wanted to do, there the tiles were, dropping in front of my screen like a curtain, getting in my way, insistent in their usefullness but, when prodded, oddly ineffectual. Oooh, the weather in Dubai -- how useful!
