Michael, London Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It is awesome for games and computer visualizations. I have tested it with the original Assassin's Creed game; press the 3D button on the laptop, it is perfect the sound quality was great and the 3D is much better than the ones I'm in the cinema. Also for those who are interested in producing computer generated image or animations there are option with rendering output to convert your who to 3D. I have been using softwares such as 3ds MAX and Bentley Microstation V8i, the processor is capable of rendering (raytrace) 2 images from different software at the same time.
Bad points:
The Hard drive is less than 1TB, which I believe this should be a standard size for today's computer. Scatch disk space for rendering images or generated output of an animation/ video editing is vital.

Good points:
excellent 3d laptop. upconverting 2d to 3d is just best and as easy as touch of a button. laptop is a work horse andd super fast. all latest features comes preinstalled. best sound quality u will never hear to a quality like it anywhere in a laptop.
Bad points:
its a bit of heavy, comes with just one 3d glasses and no extra battery for glasses so be ready to spend on it.
