Vicky , Manchester, UK Music, gaming or video fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fast boot time. Good processor Core i7-4700MQ. SSD and HDD. Bluray. Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M graphics chip with 3GB of GDDR5 memory is ok. Mighty 16GB of RAM. 4 USB 3.0 sockets including 2 sleep and charge. The four Harmon/Kardon speakers. It has enough power to run the most demanding games without big quality drops, and it's accompanied by a powerful quad-core processor. The screen makes a great first impression.
Bad points:
Poor battery life. High price. Lots of bundled software which don't work properly. HHD protection keeps shutting down itself. Heavy weight. Trouble in updating software. Looks plasticky.

Robert, Suffolk Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
If you are a serious gamer then you will love this laptop.
I got Titanfall and if runs it FLAWLESSLY and that's a big game.
Ram and processor are awesome for gaming and Burning BluRay's or just watching them this is the laptop for you.
Bad points:
If you have a Budget then this is not the laptop for you its a bit expensive. The only other thing is battery life because of being a high end gaming laptop the battery life is not the best but any laptop like this the battery is not going to last for ever.

Far too much 'extra' utilities/games/unknowns already loaded with no further information as to what for or how to use.
General lack of new user guide written or on computer.
