Very nice fit and finish. The keyboard is snappy, typing is quick and precise and the key layout is great. The RGB zoned lighting is very nice as well. 5 stars for chassis and keyboard feel.
I/O is also amazing. There is a charging port, USB 3.0, mini displayport, and the RJ45 ethernet Jack on the backside which makes it very comfortable in your lap on a couch, or on a desk to keep things out of the way. A+ there.
Performance falls a but short, the cooler design isn't the best, CPU thermals will exceed and stay above 90c but it will not throttle, my unit can stay at 4.0 GHz with a - 0.125 undervolt. The GPU hits around 1600 mhz which is fine and never exceeds 70c.
Overall, there obviously can be improvements, but this is far and away one of the best laptops I have ever used. It's bigger brother being the Alienware M17 shares alot internally. Save your money, buy a G7!
