Good points:
- Bought at a great price

- Has Nvidia Graphics making gameplay much better as you have a wider range of games to play.

- Has an i7 processor for all them games and programs that hog the cpu.

- It was a refurbished product but it looks great! No visible marks or scratches anywhere and runs very well.

Very happy with the laptop and would recommend.
Bad points:
- Its a little on the heavy side for me, but as long as you aren't carrying it everywhere or use a rucksack laptop carry bag for over your shoulder

- It can get quite warm when playing games but on the positive side, it does cool down very quickly.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
good hardware specs and nice keyboard.
Bad points:
Mousepad a bit iffy but ok. Seems to shut down randomly but this might be a windows 8 thing. Filled with poorly designed software from windows. Windows 8 has not been designed to slow down every day tasks.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
very powerful indeed, plenty of ram and processor power. I work in the games industry and use this as my work machine now.
Bad points:
unlike a previous go envy I had, this one doesn't have the illuminated keys or hp logo on the back, or the laser etched back... But overall it's a well made, solid machine.
