This is a well-performing midrange gamers' laptop that won't break the bank. In addition you get the benefit of the customizable elements and sound, if blocky design and oodles of ports. The P506 is hard enough to take many a knock too. It might not be a 4K gaming marvel or have an Nvidia GTX 980M inside, but that's to be expected at this cost. Its battery life isn't market leading, but it's impressive for a gaming machine, and the screen is a marvel to behold. Overall, this is an above average performing gaming laptop which is more than the sum of its parts.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:
Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
