Inferior LCD


chip, disc, memory, video card, 16:10 screen, bluetooth

CRITICAL: Apparently these were installed with inferior LCD screens which results in "dancing pixels." This is readily visible on very light/white or grey color gradients. The effect is so distracting that it is simply not acceptable. RMA'd

Stupid not to buy


I was lucky to grab this laptop while they had it for that amazing price. Reviewers will bash it for the low resolution but you really dont need 1080p resolution for a 17" cause you wont notice a difference at all, plus the higher res takes a huge hit...

Very powerful graphics card ; love the brushed aluminium finish, makes it feel sturdy ; excellent sound system ; 2mp integrated camera ; doesn't weigh as much as 17" laptops usually weigh

resolution could be higher (but hey, it adds more fps)
