This isn’t the first time I’ve purchased a gaming laptop. The previous one I purchased for roughly the same price. If you compare different prices from other computer retailers, you’ll notice a difference in price vs hardware. This computer comes with 16gb of RAM. For most that’s overkill, but for the select few who love having that excess to point and brag about, it’s well worth it. The computer comes with some other features that are standard within the high end laptop category. There’s bluetooth, USB 3.0, SATA (No SSD though…), to list among the few. Additionally, the computer comes with the best video card out on the market (as of June 2011). While it may not have the 3d vision option, the extra RAM makes up for the difference. The only thing I dislike is the lack of multimedia buttons, but for some that’s a plus.

Best buy!!!
