    The big difference is that this has a 765m. Andl the macbook pro has a 750m graphics card.

    $2,500 dollars. Seriously, Two-thousand, five-hundred dollars. It looks cool, do not get me wrong, and seems to check off what I would like out of a Razer laptop. But for that price, is just painful.

    This thing sounds like a bag of goddamn shit. If you use any semblance of intelligence in research, you can find a fairly decent to extremely great laptop for the exact same price.

    Wait, how is this not good? I thought the only problem would be price, so why search for something that's less eye-candy and bulkier for the SAME price? The only reason I'd search for something else is if the other laptops are upgradable on a desktop scale. Otherwise, why get a gaming laptop if you don't have the money to spare.

    I'm such a Razer fanboy, I am, but this asking price is simply too much. If it's no customizable, like most laptops, it probably won't ever be on my radar. Alas, lugging my rig around is a huge hassle in a dorm setting, and seeing my friend (who has too much money and no bills) with his Alienware laptop running everything just as good as mine--maybe even better, with its Nvidia card--makes me envious that I could pack up and go just like him. And this, with its power and awesome trackpad (which, unlike most, I loved on the SWTOR keyboard when I tried it out), not to mention awesome black and green finish and overall thin design, is high on my list of stuff-I-will-never-really-need-nor-be-able-to-afford-but-would-love-to-have. Hell, maybe I should just look into that Razer tablet. That is, of course, if it can run MMOs.

    Not a bad rig, but if you don't mind carrying around a behemoth of a laptop, I'd recommend an Asus G75. You can get all the pros pointed out (minus the bloatware, unique ui, and slim form factor), and none of the cons (well, battery life and price are about the same). Plus, you can easily replace/add more RAM or storage space in case you feel like upgrading later. Obviously I'm a little biased considering I have a G74 (previous iteration), but I couldn't help but notice that my rig didn't have most of the issues pointed out. Then again, it's bulky and heavy, which isn't something I mind, but others might (especially those with smaller briefcases/backpacks).
