    "I have mixed feelings about the ASUS ROG Zephyrus. I was told by a few friends to try this out but the internet gaming community told me to pass it up, I listened to my friends and at first it was a good gaming laptop. A few months passed and the battery started to lose power a lot faster and the laptop started to heat up quicker so I needed to buy an extra cooling fan for it. For the money I would not buy again but it did have nice graphics and ran most triple A title games."

    "This is a laptop from a major brand I recognize, and of the specs I am looking for. The price is not bad, but the user reviews could be better for what I expect to see in these results."

    "This is a pretty good laptop for gaming without the "gamer" look. This is a great laptop for both work and play, especially with the display. If you only want to game you could save a couple hundred by going something else, but the screen will be a slight trade-off."

    "I was looking for a gaming laptop that does not look like a gaming laptop and the best one I found is the Acer Aspire V 17 Nitro. I found the performance to be top end for a gaming laptop, but it does not look like one. I think it is perfect for bringing to class without looking like you are bringing a gaming laptop."

    "I think this model does look like a gaming laptop. Reminds me of a retro game console. I also don't find the design lines calling me to take another look. Personally, I would prefer a flatter, sleeker, curvier design and more initial RAM. However, I am giving it a neutral rating because some of its other features do appeal to me, including it's relatively light weight, its wide screen, the boosted processing capability and the hours of battery life. The graphics appear very sharp"

    "On the paper there is nothing wrong with this laptop. It has decent specifications and doesn't look very bulky and huge like other gaming laptops do. The price is good too. So is there anything wrong with this one? Absolutely yes. First of all, the build quality is not great and it feels very cheap and lot built with the premium materials. Another problem with it is that being somewhat thin for a gaming laptop forces you to put smaller batteries and smaller fans inside. What it means is that the battery life is poor and the fans have to work harder/louder to keep the machine cool. There is a reason gaming laptops are big and bulky but as a solution to this problem, Asus VivoBook M580VD is still a great choice. "

    "This reminds of the razr blade series of laptops. Sleek like a mac book pro, but offering a lot more juice for the money, not to mention the Nvidia graphics card"

    "The never disappointing Dell Inspiron has a gaming laptop, the 1000. I am especially fond of the cooling sysyem, hence high, long lasting functionality. The graphics provide pleasing views and the built-in subwoofer makes sound so clear that I forget where I am when engaged with this technology. Surprisingly, this laptop does not look pumped up like most other gaming laptops. It is smooth and sleek yet conventional. "
