Hi, it seems like you have configured it pretty well for your budget as you cannot not go any higher in terms of specs like the graphics card. Other custom laptop manufactuers charge a much higher premium price and the deal you have is sweet and good value.

I bought a laptop from them last year. I'm really happy with it. It's not as good as yours, but it does what I want.


You just have to be patient, they got mine to me in the alloted time, but only with a couple of days to spare. They're a busy company..
