Just got one myself spec is i7 2630qm, 12gb 1600mhz ram 2 x 750GB 7200 Sata 2 drives and a bluray player and mine also has the steel series keyboard due to me ordering from the US. So far I have had it a matter of days and been playing Crysis 2 on it @ max setting's and not had any problem's other than the battery life isn't the best when gaming but other than that I have nothing bad to say about it at all.

Would like to see what people have done with regards GPU overclocking of the 570m as I am considering having a little play using MSI afterburner not that there is any prob's with it's current speed but always good to see what it can be pushed to.

Will also add I got Drift 3 free with mine aswell

The clock and shader of the 570m are merely 100mhz slower than a stock GTX 460. biggrin.gif The Memory is surprisingly overclockable on these chips as well. biggrin.gif Gratz on the purchase! ^_^

I just ordered a GT780DXR-200.

After it arrives I can say more. This will be my first laptop.

So for now, I'd like to know what peripherals, accessories, sleeves, and/or cases other owners decided to get.

And ... what do you do to back up the drives? Can't create a drive to drive second hard drive backup image since the two drive bays are filled and configured as RAID.

I've been looking in to a new laptop as well (going to China early next year, so going to have to sell my current rig). The main thing that turned me off from this model was no option of a different graphic card. I'd really like to get one with a Radeon HD6990M (the 580m is just too expensive now and from the benchmarks I've looked at the 6990 seems really close for being half the price.

I am going to be doing quite a bit of gaming on this computer and really want a good graphics card, I definitely don't want a step down from my current one, especially with some really sweet new games on the horizon.

Also I've decided I want a SSD, and a matte screen. Still not sure if I want to go 15 or 17 inches (I will definitely have a second monitor, if I get a 17in the extra monitor will be my secondary, vice versa with the 15in one)

Also, does it make more sense to sell my current rig now and buy a laptop soon, or wait awhile and sell it after the new year and get my laptop then. Also seeing what black friday sales bring could help. Not sure how much a Clevo or MSI laptop would get discounted, but worth consideration.

Really dig he full keyboard the custom illumination. Though I have to say that when using it at home I am definitely going with a dock to use my sexy Majestouch with brown switches.

The GTX 570M looks to be a great card.

Now if only I had monies to buy it but alas dont see that happening anytime soon

OK ... the GT780DXR just arrived.

I'm concerned now about an initial backup. Is that what the F3 function key is all about?
