Review of my gaming laptop

Recently I had purchased a custom made laptop from PCSpecialist for the purpose of persuing my hobbies in pc gaming, particularly Steam Games and World of Warcraft, and photoshop for my interest in vexillology. However, I never had chance to use much of it since I set it up over a week ago as I was preoccupied with my chromebook and XBox One. To make a fair review of my laptop I'm going to to use it more this week is substitue for my chrome, even for mundane tasks such as checking on emails and social media, and post updates on further evaluation on my laptop.

As far as laptops go, it seem to work brilliantly for a recently configured model and has the usual advantages it has over the chromebook. However I have yet to use to for it's core purposes in gaming. Here is a copied and pasted details on my new laptop as well as a few photos of it. I will post updates on this thread on my continuous usage of the laptop.

Congrats on your purchase & thanks for your willingness to share your user experience. I eagerly await your posts, as I am presently sitting on the fence between this Defiance 17 and the Vyper 17.

Nice purchase!! Can't wait to see a review. I'm trying to decide between this and the Viper.

Quick update about my laptop. So far there hadn't been any issues. It's working smoothly. The sound quiality and HD of the screen is fantastic and even playing something as mundane as online pool is an experience you wouldn't get on for example a chromebook.

Sorry that I haven't replied to this thread recently. I had been a bit preoccupied with myself lately.
