"Desktop Replacement - POWERHOUSE"4.0 starson by tranzlator
Pros: FAST! Beautiful Graphics. Stylish. Every port you could want. SSD is a must...go with the 512GB and you will never look back. i7 Quad, but get RAM from crucial.
Cons: The NVDIA Optimus does not work well with docking stations. You will have to disable it in order to dock efficiently. Does not hinder performance, but drains battery (does not concern me because it is docked i.e. plugged in).
Summary: Great laptop! Yes it is on the heavy side at 6 lbs, but this is advertised. I don't think it it too heavy at all. I don't have any fan issues. It delivers as advertises...if you are considering a powerhouse laptop this will not disappoint. I would have gave it 5 stars if it was not for the Optimus/docking issue. Although when I am mobile, I enable it. No big deal.
