Very good user reviews on Amazon
Most powerful processor available
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
Solid state drive provides quick startup, silent operation, faster response compared to conventional harddrive
Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
17.3" screen suitable as desktop replacement and gaming; not ideal for portability
Economy display with resolution of 1600 x 900; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, programming etc
Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
Integrated webcam for video chatting
Processor is more powerful than necessary for typical tasks such as multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing. Could downgrade to save money

This is the first day of use and decided to share the love. I am a graphic designer/web dev. Haven't had a chance to test that realm of it yet. Conclusion: Sucks out of box. Be gentle.......
