    I put in a thumbs down vote due to: AC Adapter 230W x 2, slightly out of date CPU, heavy (especially with 2X power bricks), and SLI. I believe SLI is overkill at 1080p and also SLI can be problematic.

    o_O Well, it's mostly top of the line. Maybe a little too top of the line based comments - it may have overheating issues.

    I'd say avoid SLI and remember that you can usually add your own SSD.

    Sounds like crazy overkill to me. That's a HEDT laptop?

    I can't even imagine how high the fans have to spin to try to get rid of all that heat. Unless a person had to have such a super high-end gaming laptop for portability reasons, they would be so much better of having a gaming desktop or a laptop with one gaming GPU.
