I personally have this laptop back from BF 2017 and will be warranty repairing it this week due to faulty graphics card. However, I believe the graphics card issue is no longer a problem with the newer batches, hence the price being $949 instead of $899.

As long as you don't get a defective GPU or battery (my first one I had to return due to battery not working), this is probably one of the best bang for buck gaming laptops out there.

Using full screen 1920x1080p settings via GeForce Experience Optimzation, I get ~60fps with PUBG and ~50fps on Witcher 3.

Curious what the faulty graphics problem was?
On my first and my current laptop, after loading a game, or during loading (tested with PUBG and Witcher 3), my graphics card/laptop would completely freeze and the screen will go either black, blue, or have a seizure. The first laptop I couldn't fix no matter what. Current laptop I used Display Driver Uninstaller to uninstall the graphics drivers in safe mode and then reinstall. That has worked for about 5 months until a week ago when the problems started happening again. This time the fix didn't help, I even reset my laptop and still couldn't get it to work.

Edit: I basically can't play any games now but it's weird because I can run Guru3d benchmarking and nothing will happen.
