"Very powerful laptop worth every dollars spent.."

"This computer is an absolute beast. Can play Dota2, Monster Hunter World and Sekiro on max settings. In Dota, you get 200fps, more than enough to use the 144hz refresh rate.

It IS the Predator (TLDR at bottom).

20 August 2018
I have been skeptical of gaming laptops for years due to having an entry level machine that I got back in 2011 that unfortunately had melted its GPU due to some awful cooling systems and performance for price wasn't great back then either. So I did some reviews on the hardware for PC's, checked prices, compared, smashed my head against my desk a few times just making sure everything and all parts were compatible and going to be the best value.

Excellent performance.

15 April 2019
This computer is an absolute beast. Can play Dota2, Monster Hunter World and Sekiro on max settings. In Dota, you get 200fps, more than enough to use the 144hz refresh rate.
Beware, it got to 95°C more than once, and I don't know if it's too much, but when it did I put the fan at max and temp dropped really really quick. The bad thing is, when the fan is in maximum potency, it can be heard from another planet.

One thicc beast

14 January 2019
Ive had it for 3 months now and i absolutely love it! No more lugging cpu to a lan party! Sounds like a jet sometimes and handles all games really well! Played witcher 3 on ultra settings with nvdia hairworks on and fxaa and it ran the game on 76 fps even with mods on!! If you want the best for the price get this one! Has no issue with thermals unlike other MORE expensive gaming laptops that thermal throttles >.>

Only problem i found on this laptop is that the screen is a little bit dim and quite heavy. It is kinda expected for a laptop this powerful to have horrible battery life.

Amazing laptop for the money

15 November 2018
I've just changed jobs and now travel far more so upgrading my gaming desktop was not great value for me.

Much internet hunting led me to this.

The good bits;
The cooling is fantastic. I cannot get cpu or gpu over 80 degrees.
Looks great
The screen is fantastic, 144hz 1080p with gsync.
I/O ports are great.
It is the best value 8750H, gtx1070 laptop on the market. No contest.
My initial unit was faulty but replaced promptly and with no fuss
The gtx1070 is overclockable with built in software and will genuinely match desktop level performance

The bad;
My first into was faulty (but replaced)
It ships with a bugged version o...

Super Fast

29 October 2018
The laptop is very fast and does everything I need it for, the only issue is the 'predator sense' feature does not load all the time. Other than that a very good product.
