"Those points along with a great entry level price will make this gaming system a no brainer choice for anyone looking to hop from console gaming to PC gaming.
A baseline configuration starts at $1,579 and includes an Intel Core i7 3740QM processor, GeForce GTX 670MX graphics, 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 RAM, 750GB hard drive (7200 RPM), built-in memory card reader, 8X DVD burner, 802.11n Wi-Fi + Bluetooth adapter, 2.0MP webcam, three USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and DVI-I output, FireWire, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and a 9-cell battery.
