Seems to be a very well built laptop. It's a little heavy for most people and pulls a lot of power but I knew this going in and not a problem for me and expected in a high end system.

Excellent, but some inconveniences
This is a great laptop. I have to agree with Roger about the power cord. It unplugs very easily. One other major thing is the LED logo on the top bleeds through the screen so you see the LED's glow through the screen if it is not at 100% (and sometimes even when it is) so I have to keep it off. That also means that my RGB keyboard has to be off as well as you cannot not turn one off without the other. For a laptop this expensive, it is very surprising that this huge mistake was overlooked. I would absolutely love some way to turn off just the logo LED so I can continue to use my RGB keyboard. There is one other small inconvenience that continues to bother me. When the caps lock is on or off there is no indicator LED or anything to let you know that it is, so they only way you know is when you start typing. Not a deal breaker but pretty annoying.
Overall, I am very happy with this laptop. Being able to play any game on the highest settings while still keeping the temperature very low is something I never thought I would have in a laptop. Also works very well with the 3d modeling software I use everyday for work.

Great laptop; annoying power port.
The machine and performance are excellent. My only complaint is with the power cord. The port where the cord plugs into the laptop is very soft and even small movements of the laptop will cause it to unplug. For a high end machine, a higher quality power port would have been appreciated. I would still by the laptop again; it isn't that big a deal but mildly annoying.
