BATTERY, HEAT AND NOISE
The heat goes back two holes separated by the fans and for the GPU and one for the processor as each of them is necessary to keep the temperature low. The laptop is cool most of the times but at high settings it gets warm.
It produces high noise when dealing with high games and on ultra high settings which is inevitable as the whole laptop is on the verge of its high pace working which will eventually create some noise. As far as the battery is concerned it gives you only 100 minutes which is not that good at all but at this high settings battery is ought to be used at this rate.
If you are willing to spend the money then go for it because its one of the best for gaming.
