Source: Hot Hardware
In the end, is the Z61p worth the premium you pay for the performance you get? The answer to that clearly lies in what the system would be used for. If you are strictly looking for a gaming system, then it is recommended you look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a well balanced system that does not necessarily excel in any one area but provides above average performance in all areas, is solidly built, comes with excellent security and software bundle, and has one of the best reputations in the industry for quality and support, then look no further than the Z61p.
