I7, 128GB SSD
I7, 128GB SSD
Now selling for $800 on Newegg eBay – totally worth it, for those who want a gaming laptop for a lower price!
This version comes with an I7-4710HQ, 1080p IPS display, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD for $1100 from from Newegg. The $900 non-SSD version for $900 is more cost effective for those who can install the M.2 SSD themselves (or SSHD, or nothing), but it requires some gentleness as opening the VN7-591G is not as easy as in other machines.
Gaming performance of the GTX 860M 2GB + I7 is very good for 1080p gaming, running most games on very high settings. Under gaming, the CPU throttles only a bit and GPU is not (check the review) and the VN7-591G delivers good performance in all games, at least as good as other GTX 860M equipped laptops.
The battery performance is not that good currently at around 3-4 hours tops, depending on your way of use, but it might get better.
Overall, this machine is a very good deal for those who want a more complete 15.6″ gaming laptop with an M.2 drive included – the 256GB SSD is enough for the OS and many programs. The 16GB RAM will also probably prove itself for those video/photo editors who use very RAM demanding software.
