Decent all rounder that can take a punch

Construction is much more sturdy than my previous laptop, nice sleek design. It is quite weighty but that's to be expected from a laptop of this size. Screen is very vivid and a good brightness. Performs reasonably well for most tasks although can start to slow down when the disk is in high usage. Have played a few current and graphically intensive games (Overwatch, Civ VI etc.) on it at medium-high settings and it handled them fairly well with 40-60+ fps generally being achieved at 1920x1080. Probably worth spending the extra money on a slightly beefier rig if you care about being able to set all your settings to "Ultra" but otherwise this laptop will do you well.

Exactly what I was hopping to be

Great looking laptop .now I can take Netflix with me everywhere on a big 17" screen and a good screen

This Laptop has it all!

Fantastic for gaming with the dedicated graphics card and a nice big 17.3" screen! This laptop has it all!

Fantastic laptop

Have been wanting to buy a laptop for a while, so far I’m absolutely delighted with my purchase. it is easy to use, the big screen is bright a crystal clear great for viewing photos and it has a cd/dvd drive which is very handy. Would recommend this product to anyone. The service from ao was hassle free and delivery was fast even though I live in the Scottish highlands!! Great product from an excellent company. Thanks ao!!!

Who needs a console - Great Gaming Laptop

I would typically use a traditional gaming console to game however using this laptop has really opened my eyes to the fact that no longer do gaming laptops have to cost the earth or don't provide the same experience as a console. This laptop has amazing HD and sound (thanks to the B&O Play speakers and 1080p 17inch screen) as well as a pretty decent GeForce graphics card to ensure games played (or your laptop) don't lag. I do feel it is missing a backlit keyboard for night time gaming sessions but it does have white rimmed keys which actually reflect thanks to the massive 17inch screen, so it kinda doesn't need them. Despite the product specification on the page saying it doesn't have an SD card slot nor an ethernet port, it comes with both as well as 3 USB ports instead of the advertised two. It also has an impressive 11 hour battery life as well as benefiting from fast charge meaning it goes form 0-50% charged in around 30 minutes which is great for on the go. Could this replace my games console...? If I could get used to the games controls, most definitely as doubling up as an impressive everyday laptop as well would mean I'd save money and space.
