I replaced an Asus ROG G75VW, and given the choice a second time, I would have kept the Asus.
With that said, this Lenovo is no push-over. The dual graphics cards are capable of a higher quality graphics than the Asus. Everything can be downloaded so I wasn't worried about losing the optical drive in favor of a second GPU. Enough RAM (could be upgraded to more), a 1TB HD, 15" full HD display, and great speakers make it a solid choice for any PC gamer without room for a desktop.
Now, the edge of the case isn't sharp, but it is not smooth. About 1 inch below your wrist is where your arm will rest on the edge of the case. It's rather annoying/uncomfortable, but a long sleeve shirt will fix that. Also, even on a full batter set to "high performance" you won't get very good in-game performance unless you're plugged in.
My biggest complaint is the heat generated. I knew two GPUs would produce a lot of heat, but the primary graphics card is piggy-backed off of the CPUs heat sink and fan, and the secondary GPU has it's only complete cooling unit. I use a chill pad and lap desk to keep the heat off my lap and cool the bottom of the laptop (the pad is curved so the fans can still pull air in through the bottom of the case).
Overall it's a great system. I can tell I haven't pushed it to it's full potential yet... Kingdoms of Amalur, WoW, Rift, Guild Wars 2, Diablo 3... all on High/Ultra and it doesn't hesitate.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Amazing all around laptop
Overall very impressed with with everything. For those of you wondering if this this model comes with the M.2 NGFF (42mm) port on the motherboard, it does. Great gaming laptop for the money but will take a little time to setup.
