Well constructed, stellar screen, good keyboard and trackpad, powerful configurations, solid gaming performance for both versions, but especially the 970M model, proper priced
Luxurious
Nice packaging
Great performance
Sharp vibrant display
Bright backlit logo on the hood that can't be turned off, the trackpad is too close to the laptop's bottom lip, short battery life, some heating and throttling issues on the 870M version
Battery life
Fixed battery not upgradable
Software CDs but no optical drive
Battery life isn't wonderful, colour might not appeal to everyone
