Everything but the processor is honestly really good. I mean, the i7 5820k is a six core processor that runs at 3.3 hertz with a 15mb cache so it seems a tad bit outdated. Though with it being a touch screen the video card HAS to be good so it's no surprise at why it's so powerful. Also the ssd will make your computer load up programs much faster. 16gb is the norm for gaming computers, but like I said touch screen so it kinda has to have it just to run the UI. So it's probably above the normal, but not as good as a current gaming PC. It's probably about as good as mine (besides processing power). I do have an amd 8350 black sooo that's a little harder to be with sheer power. Though the newer intel i7 5960X blows mine out of the water

What do you guys think, any good?


$2000 dollars is an absolute rip off for a laptop like that, you should be getting a 5th gen CPU, at least a TBB, and the graphics card is ok

let me know if your OS has issues with the internet via WI-FI , mine does, I'm still looking at a fix....

4th gen sounds pretty old for a CPU, we're now in 6th gen Skylake. Next year or in 2017 we'll have Cannonlake.

I had an old MBP15 that was super old so I upgraded to a 2012 MBP15 which runs way better than my 2008 MBP and it doesn't heat up like an oven. I'll buy a gaming PC when I get more funds. My MBP15 was on sale so don't criticize lol.
