Also @Nezumi, sorry I picked a new laptop, this one was going for the same price with slightly higher stats. Alright since University is around the corner and bringing up my desktop PC was a huge pain in the ass, I had to resort to buying a gaming laptop and I settled with this monster: Costed me $1450 on amazon (Thank you prime) Let's get this out of the way, this thing is a fucking beast. It weighs ~10-11 lbs with the battery and is a 17" laptop, this thing is a behemoth and portability WILL be hampered by it, this isn't something you'd want to bring to class on those little shitty writing surfaces. Specs: 2.4ghz Quad core i7 processor, 1.75tb memory, 12 gb ram and a gtx 860M video driver. 4 USB 3.0 slots and a firewire slot. First thing I noticed out of the box was how tiny the battery pack was, like shit look at this thing, That's what, 6 inches? it's tiny, but surprisingly enough one can easily get 3-4 hours on a single charge which is pretty impressive in of itself. Secondly this thing looks sexy as hell, the top part has a matte texture that is easy on the fingers (though is a finger grease magnet) and the overall build quality is great with no play in the parts and everything just feels solid to the touch. Not to mention it doesn't feel like cheap plastic. As for performance specs, my home PC scores 11k points on the FFXIV character creator benchmark, this PC scores 7k, not as powerful, but it's a sacrifice that needed to be made for portability. the screen is great, featuring 1080p with good colour contrast to boot, my only complaint about this is the vertical viewing angle is a little dodgy but it's a minor complaint at best. Any questions? I'll be glad to answer.
