    I gave only 3 stars to this review because the 1 tb hdd failed within a week, and the face recognition is not perfect but is a nice feature, overall a solid performer

    The hardware specs are unreal. Some people feel overwhelmed with the dimensions and weight of this device but it's for the good - durability and most importantly air circulation are key. It literally handles any game at full settings without any hiccups and reasonable FPS.

    My tower desktop finally gave up one too many times, and decided it was enough. I needed something for photo and video editing and was looking to switch to a laptop. This had all the right specs, so picked it up. Couldn't be more pleased. The screen is great too. Very happy with the purchase.

    Nearly Perfect.

    Perfect for a poweruser, performs all tasks exceptionally well, and is much more portable than the 17. The matte screen is slightly low brightness but is pretty good to look and has barely any faults. The fans get a bit loud when under pressure but the speakers more than cover it up, and the vents are pretty effective. Keyboard feels really sturdy and can survive a beating. Not very comfortable to use it on your lap for extended times. Ive only played a few fps and racing games and the 1070 has been sailing smoothly even at high settings. AlienFx is bloody amazing. The lighting trackpad looks crazy. Similiar specs at a substantially lower cost are available from ASUS and MSI, but they compromise slightly in build quality and hugely in terms of premium looks.

    I got this laptop on doorbuster so I got an amazing price. I play games for 8 hours and the system does not get hot and the fan is quiet. I researched this laptop before I bought it and the system lived up to its reputation. The display is great and shows definition in the game. The sounds is amazing and very clear. I can hear things I did not notice on my older laptop. I love the design and colors you can use to customize the lights on keyboard, side panels, track pad and cover. The weight does not bother me, as for all the features I get for the price it us well worth it. I can upgrade the system when needed so I won't be buying another system for years. I have owned the system for 3 weeks.

    Awesome laptop

    I first tried HP spectre x360, and it was not my ideal after first two days. The laptop was becoming so hot and the fan noise was too much that I was not able to bring it to outside. I returned that gear and got this one. I love this computer with following specs: 1. i7-7700HQ (Quad Core, and it's much faster than dual core that I had, my hp spectre x360 was i7-7500U and it was reacting slow) 2. GTX 1070, the best graphic card in my life. 3. The weight (Even though it's still kinda heavy, they decreased about 1.5 lbs from previous one, and my very first laptop was 12lbs. . so I still love 7.5 lbs) 4. Ideal Ram capacity (16GB) 5. Battery amount (99 Wh if I saw correctly?) Cons 1. Weight (compared to ultrabooks which are around 4lbs) 2. The size of SSD (since it's only 128 GB, you have to care when you actually download the software. Make sure that you install to the HDD not on SSD, You need certain empty amount in SSD required to keep it fast) 3. It could be a little bit pricey for people who have limited budget, but I think this is worthy getting. P.S. I love overall design of this laptop. Some people could hate this kind of model, but I desired for this kind since high school... I hope my review could help :)

    I needed a new laptop since mine was falling apart and I was looking into getting a laptop for multimedia since I'm going to major in that field. I was looking into both macs and gaming laptops. I like the mac for the nice sleek design and longevity. I saw in one of my local stores, there was a 512gb macbook pro as a open box a little over $2000. Even though that was a smoking deal, I still waited a week because it was still a large lump sum to stomach for only my productive needs and no gaming aspects. After doing some more research, I realized that to get a gaming laptop with specs I wanted, I would have to order it online. The only one that fitted my needs was the Alienware 17.3 incher they had out on display in their store, and I was not about to settle for something so huge! When I went back having it set in my mind to just grab the macbook pro I saw this puppy in the open box area. It was an online order returned and at 1/2 of the cost of the Macbook open box I was considering! It was like a godsend! I snagged it up real quick since it has all the power of the 17.3 Alienware displayed but in a smaller package. Not only would this suit my productive needs as a multimedia major, but I could also game with this that I knew a macbook would lack in. Best decision ever! Now I have the option of gaming with high graphics games like Witcher (witcher 2 and 3 runs smoothly on high settings! @@@@@@@ , Mass Effect, and even doing VR. Still learning my programs for music production to truly test the machine. But I'm happy overall with my machine! Built solid and with little issues. PROS: -beautiful display! bright, sharp! -LOTS OF POWER! -love the custom features -less bloatware than other PCs -decent battery for being a power house (3-4hrs of use) -modifiable, can upgrade to 32gb of memory and has 2 slots for m.2 SSDs -includes SSD CONS: -HEAVY, compared to MSI and other 15.6 inch gaming laptops -no touchscreen, music editing would be much easier with a touch screen vs mouse -Alienware FX program used to change the RGB lights for keyboard is GLITCHY, Sometimes lights work and doesnt work. Must restart PC every time they dont come back on from sleep mode -does heat up quite a bit, but also to be expected with the beefy processor and graphics card -small SSD, would prefer 256gb to start
