This machine is a very solid built machine for gaming graphics. The processor is not the fastest on the market, but for gaming, who cares anyways? The graphics on this machine are amazing for a laptop, and that is 90% of the gaming experience anyhow. Very well priced for a machine that runs this well. This laptop is also very environment friendly and does very well to conserve power. It can handle a very heavy cpu and gpu graphics load as well when needed. I liked this laptop so much I went and bought another one for my wife.
