    Had a laptop for just one week. Gets stuck on shut down updating. Nothing over night. Turns off and now I can't even boot to my login screen without error code screen. Phone support said to buy a recovery disc but it doesn't even have a dvd drive lol. I'm guessing that interrupted update fucked up my partition.

    Thank god for 14 day returns.

    Great first time with windows 8. God forbid this happens with the next one. Too bad no more preinstalled w7 laptops are sold anymore. At least not the laptop I was looking for.

    Pretty much had to. Had the same issue the same day i got it and tech support guided me to force shutdown and do some boot configuration shit. Tried it the second time and that's when it got fucked. Error was about booting and i think a damaged partition. Just took it in for an exchange. Probably a good idea to have an ethernet cable handy for future updating. I don't like windows 8 regardless. But hey it's good enough for when i need it in class and if i ever want to game on the go

    For those interested - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0%2c28....asp?tab=Specs

    Seems pretty legit for the price. What games do you play and how does it handle them? I've been in the market for a gaming laptop for some time now which is why I ask.

    @Durzo

    I was looking for a different V7 482PG model (one of the ones on their site) and I didn't want to drive everywhere to hunt for it so i just got this one because the specs were close enough. The only difference was that the one I have is i believe 1 tb of space with an i5 instead of around 500gb with an i7. I did research on the i5 and i7 models that come with it and you probably won't notice any difference for an extra hundred bucks or so unless you really want the extra space.

    So far I've played dota 2 and cs:go. Both ran good but I'll look more at the video settings side when i get home. Dota 2 got a bit laggy in team fights, i like to think because i was using my internet wirelessly. I doubt it's a hardware thing since cs:go ran just fine. The laptop keys got a bit warm during csgo but not to the point that it bothered me

    I think it's on sale until the 18th via bestbuy.ca $200 off i think. Don't think they'd price match my exchange as i believe they don't do it for limited quantities

    If you're a graphics whore who wants an all out gaming laptop, this might not be it. I just needed something small and skinny for school and gaming. Not looking to play bf4 on high settings obviously

    Edit: also doesn't come with a dvd drive.

    Who needs a dvd drive any more? All i need is a gigantic hdd or ssd and we're good to go. I just played with a few tablets with windows 8. Holy shit that OS is terrible.

    I've had to downgrade at least 3 or 4 laptops to windows 7 because of how shitty W8 is. My dads laptop didn't even have a touch screen, what was the point?

    Just got my mom a new laptop and it has 8.1 and I fucking despise the tiles. She seems OK with them but when I am using it I keep it on the traditional desktop. It feels pretty much like 7 and I like it that way. Why couldn't they keep it the same?

    It's good for just plain tablets but I feel like laptops it sucks balls. I had a hard ass time getting into network settings to see my uncles wifi password because "sometimes" the menu says one thing and sometimes it says another. Fuck 8.1.

    Can't put a simple password on my laptop without needing a microsoft account for some stupid profile shit. Then they want me to sync my email with my skype username, wanting me to login using my email info rather than my skype account in order to even use the fucking "app".
