The reviews on Newegg and amazon say it's great but reviewers like computer shopper and others say it sucks. I just want the components to not fry :3

If you go back a few CPU generations, you'll be surprised at the deals you can find.

How about a quad core 5700hq at 2.7-3.5GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 970M and a 1TB HDD for $1100? SSD upgrades are really simple to do and SSDs aren't hard to get deals on.

It's open box but it does include the power adapter and the OS so you don't need to worry about that.

The keyboard has flex to it and features mushy keys as well as a large amount of key wobble, the trackpad's design to not pick up you dragging your thumb often prevents it from picking up small movements like when correcting the direction of the mouse on screen, the speakers are really underpowered and disappointing as is the sturdiness (or lack thereof) of the chassis.

Internal hardware: Four stars. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

Design and usability: Two stars. One pretty dull thumbs up.

They tried, but not hard enough for me to recommend it.

@weberdarren I'm just afraid that it's gonna be obsolete in a year. Well isn't that for every laptop? But I want it to last long. I need something light weight which can be used to create and animate 3D models. Also playing a couple games like Overwatch and doom and battlefield 1. I was looking at the msi gs 43 vr and the 63vr. I also don't want the components to fry when I'm rendering something in adobe premiere :lol:

Budget?

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I found the best user ever. He's a user on the Linus Tech Tips forums that's pretty much right up my skill set and seems to know what he's doing pretty well. His name is Herman Mcpootis and his image is the 20th Century Fox image with the text replaced with "u wot m8".

This guy is just perfect. :D
