Did he ever upload the videos from HighLANder?

#NoShame.

BTW these (signatures) are my favorite things about it, if this doesn't count though then I'd say the IPS display .

Is there a "higher end" G550 coming out? Like GZ or GX?

Like something to directly compete with the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K!

I really like the looks of the notebook (the finish is awesome, and if it really doesn't stain-> perfect!!!) as well as that it is a balanced gamer notebook.

I don't need and want something super fast, that's what I have a desktop PC for. My notbeook is supposed to be something I am working at, BUT have the ability to play some games when visitng someone.

 

This thing is basically perfect for me. ;-) I wish I had one.

 

 

EDIT: And I just read Luke's signature. "It's like virtual reality in real life!" Love it. That's gotta be my favorite thing.

My favourite part of this notebook is the fact that it is covered in signatures. "Hey guys, I'm on a mountain!"

I really love how nice the viewing angles are, given this is a TN panel, from the footage I saw, it still looks great! :D
