WARNING:

For a pc with these impressive specs and this expensive, you should consider the following reviews before buying. There are many 1 to 3 star reviews because of a "Blue Screen of Death" that seems to be plaguing both this and it's 15.6 version. I'd hate to see any one spend this much money only to be possibly disappointed. YMMV....

I have the GE72 with a slightly different configuration and really like it. It has a great TN screen (much better than the IPS screen on the Dell Inspiron Skylake with the 960M that I returned), nice keyboard, nice speakers and fast wifi.

OP never stated it comes with Win 10. Just stated that it can be upgraded to Win 10 for free.

I purchased a HP with i7 4712HQ+ GTX 960M 4GB DDR3 last year, which is good enough for many up to date games. And this one is better.

While reading some reviews it seems like people are unhappy with the trackpad. Also some saying there is no trackpad scrolling. Anyone have experience with this?

Also I'm an engineering student looking to run AutoCAD, MatLab, SAP2000, Sketchup etc. on this. Is this a good choice for me?

I know that. I was ready to order it and then realized this. I was simply wanting to let others know. No judgment against the OP whatsoever.

Should put at least (require AMEX coupon) in the title or put the price without AMEX in the title since many people don't have AMEX and those that have AMEX, may already used the AMEX offer for something else.

Yea.. there is no scrolling on the trackpad. Sometimes the trackpad randomly stops working, only to have it fix itself after a few seconds, but it's a rare occurrence. I would suggest to get a mouse with the laptop and an SSD m.2 if you can afford it. Other than those two minor issues, I enjoy the laptop - both for games and work.

Oh, and also buy a cloth. You will easily get smudges on the case.

We have a thread that talk about all the Black Friday laptop deals.
And it list many "High End" laptop in the Wiki.

So how is this compare to those "High End" laptop in the Black Friday laptop thread? So any of those laptop deals in that thread actually better deals than all the laptop deals available in the last few days?
