The screen is beatiful and the performance with it’s 6 cores is stellar. It will still produce a whine under load but remains relatively cool. Overall it delivers what it promises. The only thing disappointing is the keyboard chatter/double pressing, which Gigabyte still hasn’t eliminated, and is quite annoying. Also, the power adaptor is quite huge for a portable; so if you’re not keen at lugging it around, you may have to leave it when not gaming-at least the huge battery should last you several hours on non-gaming productivity.
