    Don't buy this laptop, at all, even if it's cheap. I watched this video and bought one anyway. What Dave says about the thermals is completely true. All the heat from the GPU gets directed to the CPU and the heatsink/fan can't pull it fast enough so the CPU throttles extremely hard.

    Get a laptop with two fans, don't make the same thousand dollar mistake I did.

    People who are interested in this computer, DO NOT BUY IT. It has given me horrible experiences. The gaming experience itself is bad, had to send it in to fix about 6 times, build quality is HORRIBLE, the screen hinges got completely decapitated 3 times as they ARE PLASTIC. Hard Drive completely gave up and HDMI port stopped functioning. Screen LCD stopped working
    after a year or so, had to get it replaced, battery life is HORRIBLE, lasts about 15 – 25 minutes while gaming.

    Had the GL553VD for over 5 years now, bought it for my 18th birthday as a present and this video helped me decide. Got it for video editing which worked fantastic (Sony Vegas, Adobe sometimes). Always has good airflow, cleaning for dust every couple of months. Really easy to open up to clean. Still holds up today, though the most I do is browsing and playing Skyim (with about 50-60 mods). Even tried Red Dead Redemption 2, it's obviously not holding up well, but on lower graphics it's actually playable even with trainers. But it tends to get pretty hot, I have 35-40C CPU on idle and browsing/watching videos, but heavier games like RDR2 spike it up to almost 80 and even 90 on rare occasions, fan going batshit crazy. That could be just me though. Skyrim peaks at around 75C. Battery is pretty bad ever since I bought it, not something to take along on the go unless there's an outlet nearby. Hope this comment helps anyone thinking about getting one. I'd say it's definitely worth it for the same reasons Dave mentions.

    Just randomly found this laptop at a pawn shop for 275 CAD I must say I'm pretty impressed. Although I'm new to pc gaming coming from ps4 no complaints from me.
