Hi, have owned this laptop for nearly 2 years and thought I should probably say how good it was. It is absolutely fantastic, extremely fast and with a dedicated graphics card able to play all the latest games as well as it being able to replace just about any desktop. However there are some small reliability issues with it, such as on mine the power port broke so had to buy a new one and pay somebody to fit it. However apart from that it has been an excellent laptop, easy to use, and extremely powerful. and would provide anybody that doesn't take their laptop about in a bag a very good choice for placing on a desk or table and generally not taking outside of the house. It never bogs down when opening programs and the cinedash feature is fantastic if you like watching films, coupled with the speakers which are great for a laptop. Fantastic.
Feel free to message if you have any questions!
I've owed this laptop for about 8 months now, and to be honest, its proved to be an excellent purchase.
The screen is excellent, well lit, and provides a crystal clear image, and when utilising the blue ray player, shows excellent detail.
The laptop possess a good size hard drive for all your storage needs.
The graphics card in this machine enable it to play quite intensive 3d games, I play Everquest 2 on it, which is notorious for being hard to run on laptops.
The keys are a good size, and the dedicated number pad is a god send on this, I find normal size laptops fiddley to use, this is the next best thing to a proper keyboard.
The multi media touch pad, is a nice addition, and works quite well for 1 touch volume, muting and skipping tracks etc, however I have had a couple of occassions when I've needed a restart to get it working again.
The speakers were the biggest surprise for me, having a 5.1 sound system built in, with good bass, and being remarkably robust, and loud.
The wireless connectivity is seamless, and it easily picked up my home network.
In fact all in all the worst thing I have found is the battery life, which I was fully prepared for, under heavy use it will last under an hour, however I tend to use it plugged in anyway, so its not too much of a hassle.
This is a cracking machine that really will suit anybodies needs, I cant recommend it enough.
Best laptop i ever used, recomends for allround use and gaming.
