    With only an NVIDIA GeForce 840M for graphics processing, it isn’t really a “Gaming” laptop, more of an entertainment system that is capable of some games.
    Laptops should not be marketed as being for gaming, as they all inevitably suffer from heat and breakdown quicker than they normally would under every day usage.
    Until Manufacturers implement an efficient and effective cooling system in laptops, stick to gaming on a desktop system.

      ugh, spoken like someone who has little experience. A powerful laptop is like a powerful car. If you take care of it and be sensible it’s reliability is a moot point. Are you suggesting tiny and low power consumer laptops have greater reliability? Enough airflow, fans and heatsinks can be done to cool 100W GPUs effectively it’s the big OEMs (MSI is the worst I just read their latest & greatest GT60 throttles like a serial killer) who prioritise weight and cost more than temps who cause this misconception. I’ve had a 15″ Clevo with 580M and a 17″ with 680M over the last 3.5 years and the ability to pick up my system and take it with me is such a part of my daily life now I can’t imagine how I was ever tethered to a desk 10 hours in a row. I do agree a 840M is underwhelming, but ultimately it’s not the size that matters it’s whether it does the job well enough ;p nor does everyone have $2k to drop on a laptop

        Actually it is spoken from vast experience with people constantly posting their complaints and issues regarding so called “gaming” laptops on two tech support sites which I assist on.
        But if you want to compare your experience with two laptops …..
