OKAY

 

I bought this laptop because I own a 3D TV and I wanted something that could play Blu Ray 3D movies well no where in the description or anywhere else did it say that it did not support Blu Ray 3D and apparently, news to me, Blu Ray drives do not...

Great laptop for gaming and everything else you could use it for..... but

Great PC
