Worth the $
from Omaha, NE
I have gone through 3 computers in 2 months. Didn't like either of the other 2 very well, so glad that they ended up breaking. No big complaints about this machine. Highly recommend it to anyone running big programs.

Great Perfromance Multimedia And Gaming
This is a very high end laptop, with excellent build quality, a very sharp, clear, and bright screen, accurate screen colors, a good keyboard, and attractive styling. Anyone looking at this machine can see that it's no $500 laptop. The Windows Experience Index scores are 7.6 for the processor, 7.7 for the RAM, and 7.3 for the graphics. So it's a lightning fast machine that won't get bogged down by graphics-intense applications like high resolution gaming. It doesn't come with many programs pre-installed, so I don't know what "apps" the other reviewer is talking about. And I have never seen any computer at any price that came with free Microsoft Office. Anyway, on the negative side, the computer is not bulky for a 17 inch screen, but it is heavy. The power supply is also large and heavy. The overall impression is solid and rugged build quality. I would not recommend dropping this thing, however, because of how heavy it is. You could carry it around in a large backpack, but for students a better plan would be to leave this one on your desk and carry a lighter, cheaper laptop in your bookbag. The sound is decent on headphones and the speakers are as good as any I've seen on any laptop. Of course there's no actual bass from the little speakers, but the midrange and treble are good considering how small the speakers are. It comes with a large, easy to use touchpad, but most people will probably add a wireless mouse. It has four USB ports, a network port, a HDMI output, and headphone and microphone jacks.Summary - Its an excellent high performance expensive laptop, fully capable of doing the job as your only computer if the screen is big enough for you. Highly recommended.
