    Re: buying a new laptop

    It seems to be getting rave reviews in the US and Asia but I suspect the external gpu "CORE" is going to be ridiculously expensive and impractical. But an i7 with Intel 520 is more than sufficient for CSGO/Simcity/etc (at least the games I play because they run great on my i5 with Intel 520) so it seems like a pretty good balanced option!

    Re: buying a new laptop

    my review after using it for about 1 month

    pretty good computer overall but not the best.

    the chasis of the computer is made from finished aluminum metal and is very prone to dents and damage. the keyboard is alright very comfortable. The touch screen interface makes things so much easier when scrolling or when your laying down and want to use it without the track pad. The screen itself becomes quite blury at times and fuzzy (considering it said HD). The computer comes with a lot of bloatware. It becomes slow after a little while and can't handle more than a few programs at a time.

    What do you mean the screen gets blurry? I personally got the touch screen over non-touch screen for the glossy screen rather than the anti-glare screen. I think they look much clearer and sharper.
    yeah I'm saying from time to time, the screen gets blurry and you can see the letters and pictures all fuzzy and unclear. Glossy screen is better too imo because it's easier to touch.

    That's a DPI issue.

    I get the same thing, really annoying, but haven't been bothered to google for a long-term fix. It happens seemingly randomly with certain apps.
    Yeah this.

    I thought it was my eyes or something but after using matlab or Chrome for to long or happens
