I used it for some time now, and it really does the job for me.
I can convert movies in like 2 time, using this amazing computer with an amazing processor.
I even bought the processor for my desktop too, because the I7 is just to sweet.
The Pc boots Windows 7 in almost no time, even though you installed junks all over your computer.
I find the battery running out of power a little too fast sadly.
Maybe these extreme processor draws a little to much power to fit a laptop.
Anyway if you need a computer which games good and de encoding job very good then the computer is for sure something for you.
I used this computer to game Crysis and it performed well at middle/high graphics.
It is afterall also a pretty cheap I7 computer, if you think about the prices for example a HP computer.
Good luck finding your new pc.
