I bought the PE70. Seems like a great machine for photo/video editing or at least that is my hope. Hits all the marks for me, easy enough to upgrade RAM or add SDD. Newest Gen CPU/GPU, color calibrated IPS monitor. Thanks TDMVP73.

How did you add the SSD? Is it as easy as opening the back and putting it in an open slot?

Did you clone the OS to the SSD? What software did you use?

Thanks!

The 8gb ram variant has been slightly lower at 789. Once this laptop hits the $600 mark, I'll definitely bite!

I bought this deal, so I don't have it yet.

Google will answer those questions, from what I can tell yes the back will need to be opened.

Great specs for the money. I'm shocked the 17.3 incher doesn't weigh more.

How much longevity does the m960 have? Will it be struggling with medium settings a year from now?

In my opinion, pay a little extra and get at least the 980m. I picked one of these with no SSD and only 8GB of RAM for $1400. Just keep an eye out, because scaled back models regularly go on sale.

I can run everything at ultra, even brand new games.

Here is an open box deal for $1450: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...-_-Product

It's $50 more than the deal I got, but try to find a 980m cheaper. RAM and the SSD upgrade would be an extra $100. .

It should struggle with medium settings for some of the newest games (late 2015 and 2016). I have a non-mobile 2GB GTX 760 (benchmarks higher than a 960m) that runs most pre-2015 games and many 2015 games at 1080p on high settings. It struggles on some of the newest games though. The only card that will get you solidly through the next couple years is a 970m or better.

Computers with 970m cards have been as low as about $900 but typically run in the $1000-1100 range on sale. At the higher sale prices, a computer with a 970m might not be worth the extra $200 but it would provide longevity if you're serious about running the latest graphics intensive games on a laptop.

Is this beefy enough to run VR (HTC Vive specifically)?


I assume not even close Confused I'm not all that knowledgeable about pc specs.

You'd want/need a 980m at least. So, no this laptop isn't beefy enough.
