"I cannot complain too much, because i got this for a price that I consider a steal. This is a very nice looking computer but w avery slow one. The bloatware is more than on a normal computer and gets in the way. You can get around this if you know what you are doing, but i could see it being very inconvenient for many. Not a great option, there are better ones for the pricing tier."
"I agree that this is a gaming laptop but according to the reviews, it's definitely not one of the best. It only has 3.5 stars on Amazon. The optical drive is there in terms of requirements, but I'm not sure the person would be happy with this model based on feedback from other consumers."
"An optical drive seems to refer to the ability to read CDs, DVDs, etc. This laptop can read/write to DVD and has decent specs related to gaming (decent processor, and a good video card)."
"Laptop seems to get the job done everytime. I can play all my games on the settings I want and get the experience I want out of it."
