I ordered it on Thursday , it arrived today (Saturday). I7 4710hq, 8GB ram, 4gb ddr5 gtx 860m, 1tb SSHD (8gb), 15inch 1080p monitor, external optical. I haven't used it for anything yet. I had to download a ton of Windows 8.1 patches, decide which "bloatware" to keep and which to uninstall (haven't finished with that yet), update nvidia drivers etc. First impressions. The system is beautiful. The photos don't do it justice. It's one of the most beautiful tech equipment I have ever bought. It feels very very sturdy, beautiful brushed metal all around (or whatever it is), a soft material near the keyboard where your hands would touch when typing some times. It doesn't seem to have an issue with fingerprints, but large dust particles, love it. It's heavy, well, it's 2.6 kilos, but it feels heavier. The monitor sucks. It's better than the monitor on my Compaq Presario from 2002, but not by much at least in terms of viewing angles without the color shifting. I haven't played any games or movies yet. It's not a deal break for me yet, I will update when I have test it a bit more. The keyboard is..well, I like it. There is something about it which I can't pinpoint yet, but I love touching it. The backlighting on the keyboard (off, 1, 2) works very well, although it doesn't show on these photos. The touchpad works ok I guess. I was never a fan of them and I plan on using a mouse when I finish installing everything on it. Sound/noise. When the cpu (haven't tried the gpu yet) is on load, the fans can be heard but barely and the noise is a very "smooth" barely noticable windy sound. If loading the GPU does about the same noise, I highly doubt one would hear them when doing something like playing games or watching/listening movies/music. Still, I have to try it with the GPU under load to know. I know it doesn't matter, but, I am very serious when I say it is a beautiful piece of equipment. Here are some lousy photos I took, and I do mean lousy, the colors look awful and the red lights look like pink paint. In reality they look much better.
