I've had it since late July, and I can take every game I have and turn everything up to Max, and not even a hiccup. Nice and smooth. MW3 looks amazing on it, especially when I plug the HDMI cable into my 65" 3d Plasma. Crysis is a good benchmark, and no problem at all. I bought this hoping it would last me at least 5 years. I think it will be awhile 'till a game comes out it can't handle. That was my goal with this computer. I'm surprised they can stuff all this into a laptop...well, it is a pretty hefty laptop. I think I'm about a year from upgrading our main desktop computer that my wife uses. She's a little jealous of my little monster here. Why a laptop you may be wondering? I use this in my living room from my recliner. I have a side table for the mouse, and a laptop stand that pivots, and I put the external keyboard on my lap. So I can watch tv, and when I want to use the computer, I just pivot it in front of me. It's a pretty sweet setup. XBOX and PS3 can suck it!
( I do own an XBOX though, and enjoy it). Anyhoo, here are the main stats...
