    "I got this computer so I could play games on my Oculus Rift, and it's mostly met my expecations. a mobile GTX 1060 is just enough to run games like Robo Recall and Elite Dangerous (though with ASW on basically all the time), which is impressive for a laptop in this price range, and the battery life isn't too horrible, about 2 hours in gaming mode. The low display resolution of 1080p kind of sucks, but it's not like that matters much in VR, and you'll definitely want to upgrade the hard drive, 256GB isn't gonna cut it (even if it's an SSD)."

    "his laptop is truly amazing. It's thin, light and does everything! The graphics card plays games very smooth and it easily overclocks for more fps. I've used both the Razer Core eGpu and the Akito Node with a 1080ti in them and it works flawlessly. On the go i just slip it in the sleeve and go. You can undervolt the processor for less heat and maybe some battery life. It's a great alternative to the Surface Book. Much cheaper too. 8 people found this helpful"

    "This one is good for a beginner gamer. Any hardcore gamer is going to want more. It does have some nice starter specs to it. It can overload and stop working for anyone doing heavy gaming."

    "The MSI GT70 Dominator Pro-890 is the best gaming laptop I have used so far for programming. There are a few that have come out since I got this a couple months ago that might be better, but this Intel i7 with 12GB RAM is fantastic!"

    "This is a great laptop. Gaming laptops tend to be bigger and bulkier, so I love that this is lighter while not sacrificing a ton of screen. It's got great specs and will serve those who game and program well."
