      Answer

      I used to play LOL and SWTOR on a much much much... incredibly slower, older, budget gaming tower; I still managed 60fps on high settings with that setup. That computer and this laptop are not even in the same universe of comparison. This laptop is light years ahead. I play Overwatch on epic, fully maxed settings and average 100-130fps no problem. Gpu and cpu won't even go over 80c on temps, and I don't use even half of system ram between graphics card and system. This laptop is obnoxiously over powered for the games you're asking about.

      Anyone use this laptop for photo editing?   (2 Answers)

        Answer

        Yes. It is fast enough to do some major photo (as well as video) editing. Depending on what you are going to do with your final product (i.e. print the photos or view them on other computers), I would recommend a good external monitor and a display calibration device (such as the Datacolor Spyder). Laptop monitors are not the best when it comes to color matching when you are printing out your photos or sending them to someone else to view on their monitor/TV. This is true with any laptop computer and not just this specific laptop. Also, if you are going to print out images as portraits, a monitor that swivels 90 degrees is essential.

          Answer

          Depending on the size of the raid, you MIGHT need to lower a little. However, I don't think you would. The power and speed of the laptop is great for gaming.

          Answer

          Depends on what you are going to school for. For generic computing uses it will work but it might be overkill. For word processing, email, and internet research (for school) you can get by with a laptop at half the price. However, if you school requires something more (i.e. music or video editing like if you are going to film school) the extra power on this machine will be essential. Likewise if you are going to be doing engineering or computer programming, you will need the extra power this computer provides. Also, if the computer will do double duty as a game machine (like when you are trying to unwind between writing papers) then this is perfect for that.

          Answer

          Yes it is! I recently switch from a MacBook Air to this. I like that I am able to game on this as well as do my assignments for school. I like the mobility of being able to play games with out bring my pc along all the time. The 1060 in the laptop handles games well. One thing tho is a does tend to get hot so having fam cooler is a major help.
