    I have had non stop problems with this machine. I purchased it in December 2014

    I also have had constant problems with this laptop. The infuriating thing about it is that the GPU fan is constantly changing speed, to the point where during graphics-intensive games, the fan will very frequently go to maximum speed, but only for one second. When the fan speeds up like this, the framerate drops significantly until the fan speed returns to normal.
    Would absolutely never recommend a Gigabyte laptop to any of my colleagues and friends. I bought this one in early 2014 and I’m already looking to replace it with a real Alienware gaming laptop.

    That being said, this laptop does a great job of handling multiple VMWare virtual machines and GNS3 Virtualbox-simulated Cisco routers for a networking lab, as the i7 and 16GB RAM were well-integrated.

    TL/DR: Graphics suck on this thing, save up another few hundred and get an Alienware if you want a gaming rig. For the AUD$1600 price tag, it doesn’t meet the market expectations of a medium-priced gaming setup.
