Good points:
Was deliberating a lot on which laptop to buy and must have done a couple of weeks of research. I soon narrowed my search down to a couple of MSI models and a Clevo bases laptop from from Schenker or similar.
To get specs similar to this laptop from a Clevo based manufacturer you're looking at probably a £50-100 saving, but is likely to fall short on build quality.

I'm a games developer, so wanted to get a laptop that could be used as a work station and for testing games (and of course playing them!) and this laptop has surpassed my expectations, it has been able to run all of my work programs and games just as fast as my beefy desktop.

Games tested so far (all maximum/ultra settings and running upwards of 40fps): Tomb Raider, Metro: Last Light, Spec Ops The Line, Alan Wake, Dishonored, Company of Heroes 2, Borderlands 2.

Also of note: I have upgraded it with a Crucial 240GB M500 SATA 6Gbps 2.5" SSD. Installation was easy. It required breaking a tamper sticker, but EU laws state user upgrades including memory and hard drives do not void warranty despite breaking tamper detection stickers.
Bad points:
Battery life is bad. To be expected from a high powered laptop like this. Though disconnection from mains power doesn't have a noticable effect on performance which is nice.

Rated the design 8/10 due to not really liking "gaming" laptops' desire to look like space ships, to be fair this one doesn't look as bad as some of the alienwares.
