You should be aware that those laptops are huge though. Immense. They're massive bricks, more "desktop replacements that's easy to re-locate" than laptops. If you, like me, need such laptops due to gaming, the Asus ROG series really is a very good choice. You get quite a bit of bang for you buck, and I've never had any issues worth mentioning.
