Nathan, Basingstoke Music, gaming or video fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This laptop is amazing! I can play most things in either high/ultra high graphics at 60fps at 45*c no problem! The keyboard is amazing, sound is perfect, the screen is beautiful. I would 100% recommend this laptop over anything else I've seen to someone wanting to play games on a portable device.
Bad points:
Battery life isn't great, but it is a monstrously powerful gaming laptop so why you would game on the battery I don't know! The only other bad point I can think of is windows 8, I really am not a fan of it.
