I have been using this laptop and wanted one with a decent processor and GPU for gaming.
A few things. It has dual GPU's. It has both the Intel HD4000 and a second GT650m Nvidia GPU. FOr less power required games and programs it will use the HD4000. For intense gaming and programs, the GT650. You can force it to use the Nvidia GPU in the NVidia profile.
It runs Gw2, and the FFXIV Realm REborm alpha perfectly at high detail, but the alpha only runs at 720p since the game doesn't support the resolution of the screen. It isn't full 1080p (but if tweaked can run 1080p images fine#.
THe screen is OLED now. Hower by default is over bright, meaning you seem to angle the screen down some to not seem over bright, just tune it yourself in settings.
It will output 1080p video's and games fine via HDMI. Runnign games on an hdtv fine at 1080p.
It has 2 Har drive slots. It comes with a 1 tb drive. You can however use the second for a SSD for faster access #amazingly fast). It simply isn't including the Solid state drive to save on price.
It is a big laptop. It isn't heavy at all, light for such a big one, but it is a 17.3 so get a proper case.
4-5 hour battery with moderate use. They didn't include a heavy duty battery but you can get one online fairly cheap.
