Great laptop for serious gaming. GET IT
Great laptop. Didn't have a single problem with it when I got it in. Have had it for a couple months and still no problem yet. Definitely recommend this laptop to anyone looking for a quality, fast and decently valued laptop. The screen actually looks great and the 120hz is a nice touch. The steel series is very nice as well. I usually use an external keyboard but I don't see myself needing one. I would recommend deleting the killer app suite manager asap if you get this and just download the drivers only to your network cards. I was a bit skeptical since this model is new but I took a chance and worked out great. Go ahead, buy one!
