    "This is an incredible laptop! I got this one on black friday, and it was a great deal. As most alienware machines... it's definitely not cheap. We all know it, gamers can't be cheapies!"

    "This is again not the absolute best but is high up there. This machine packs the hardware and processing power needed to do its intended job well. I really like that this is the 6GB DDR5 Nvidia 1060 and not the lower classed 3GB model. I do wish it had 16GB of RAM instead of 8GB."

    "I was on the market for a new laptop. My old HP was about ten years old, and starting to act up. A lot of my friends and family recommended I tried an Acer. After reading the reviews online and checking it out in the store, I decided to go ahead and buy it. So far, it has been great. It was easy to setup right out of the box. It has a 1080P resolution which is great for gaming. The graphics are really crisp and clear. The 1TB hard-drive is nice for all my add-ons and extensions. I haven't notice any lagging or anything so far. I have only had it for a month, but overall, I think it is a great gaming laptop. "

    "A ridiculously portable, lightning fast, secure computer that is bang for buck. Your getting a quick skylake i7 processor that will enable you to edit without freezing up on you. The Nvidia 960 should be good for medium to great settings on most triple A games. 16GB of ram paired with the 512GB ssd this computer has enough storage and boot up time that you'll be able to multitask like no other. Don't worry about closing certain programs since the 16GB memory will help with keeping things in check in the background."

    "This laptop is highly speced for productivity, but it's lacking when it comes to gaming. Pretty much everything about it is blazing fast, but I wish it had discreet graphics. The Intel integrated graphics are pretty good though, and I'm able to play some older games on high settings. So far, I'm pleased with the system, but it doesn't run too many newer games very well."

    "I've had this computer for a little over a year. It does really well for basic functions (creating word documents, surfing the web) but if you're looking for a computer to play games on I would suggest looking elsewhere. The graphics are good enough to watch movies if you choose to. The battery life is a bit less than what the specs quote-- I'm not sure if this is just my computer, or if I use too many programs while it's not plugged in and it uses a lot of battery life. Either way, I average around 5 hours (not the advertised 7+). I like the larger screen size, and the touch screen. I would recommend it if you're looking for a computer for school or just surfing the web. However, I would definitely NOT suggest it being used primarily as a gaming computer. I'm not a hardcore computer gamer, but I attempted to play a game that a friend recommended to me. I managed to get everything loaded onto the computer and then-- it crashed. Got everything set up again, played for 5 minutes-- crashed again. The computer met the requirements listed on the game, but I'm guessing it was a RAM problem. "

    "OK, so it looks extremely ugly. U-G-L-Y. But it works. It is super-fast and my son says it "plays all the cool games Mom." LOL. It was a little expensive, but, again according to my son, is much cheaper than most laptops that can play games. So I'm happy about that. And I've seen his friends' reactions - they are all jealous, so I'm going to say it is a top gaming laptop!"
