I'm sure this laptop is one of those that has to be put on a cooling station while gaming!
Otherwise it's not going to last very long that's for sure...

I'd love to hear the warranty/replacement /repair discussions that will no doubt take place this the Summer!

I've never been able to really make sense of gaming on a notebook. It just seems a bit counterintuitive or something. I don't get it.

I agree 100% on this...by design it's not a good idea to have HW parts that generate that kind of heat in an enclosed laptop with minimal ventilation.
There's noway it's going to last very long.
ABS Computers "Used to" make gaming laptops but had so many problems with HW failure that they stopped producing them altogether!

So is there an added option of changing out the keyboard for a frying pan? I wouldn't mind cooking up some eggs or bacon before I game.

They were going to do that! But the grease kept runing all over the place!

That's because it...
1. Looks Cool
2. Has more graphics rendering power than any other laptop.
And 3. is a 1 of a kind that you can have bragging rights on until it bursts into flames!
