"I contacted PowerNotebooks.com about a gaming laptop to use on daily basis for work. I almost never play game, but need a powerful system to run Linux and VMs.

I ordered an MSI laptop and I received an excellent service. We adjusted and confirmed my selection after ordering. They are a secure, really kind and competent organization.

The shipping was quick, the packaging professional and the laptop, just as I wanted, a great machine.

Their support either provided me useful information about Linux Ubuntu, despite they do not officially support it.

I definitely recommend PowerNotebooks.com!

"I found the experience of ordering from PowerNotebooks.com very satisfying. My service rep (Donald) was very knowledgeable and polite and answered all of my questions. The site was easy to use and I was able to customize just the notebook I wanted. The computer arrived as configured and I am very happy with it. I will definitely be a repeat customer at PowerNotebooks.com"

"Let us be clear here. In the process of signing up to write this review ResellerRatings asked, "Did PowerNotebooks.com ask you to write this review?" Well yes, Abe Barnett asked me if it was not too much trouble and when and if I found the time to do so, would I mind writing a review. No pressure there and no coaching. I would not write a review that is not 100% my own thoughts.

I purchased from Abe the Sager NP8278-Special, substituting the stock 120 SSD for a 240 GB one, and swapping out the NVIDIA 870M for the 880M GPU. I went with 16GB of RAM, and a 1 TB 7200 rpm HDD, and Windows 7. This thing is a beast! It is taking me some time to get used to, as I am a long time Linux user, but this computer is so fast it's jaw-dropping (and unfortunately AFAIK Linux has not yet sufficiently caught up with this level of hardware such as to make it perform to its fullest, so I am not using it yet). The only way I could get a better win score would have been to upgrade the CPU, which would have broken my budget. With the SSD as the boot drive, this machine boots incredibly fast. It is actually faster to just shut down and restart whenever I want to log out for a while than it is to hibernate it and wake it up.

A little more about the laptop itself: 1. I LOVE the lighted keyboard. I get up well before sunrise, and now I don't have to turn on a lamp to be able to type. 2. A niggle here - I had read somewhere on the internets that this machine had a rubberized finish, which is not the case (to be fair, maybe I was reading about optional rubberized paint). The keyboard area and the keys are rubbery feeling (love the typing feel of the keyboard), but the palmrest area and the whole rest of the laptop is black brushed metal. Quite attractive, but it's a huge fingerprint collection area. 3. The power brick is large, but I have no objection to that, nor does it get hot; it gets warm, is all. It would not hurt my feelings a bit if the DC cord - the one going from the brick to the computer - was a foot or three longer. 4. The fans are not overly loud, IMO. I had some trepidation after reading other reviews on the internets, but I don't find the sound level to be bothersome, even with the GPU fan running full blast. The audio on this machine is so much better than that on my old machine that I hardly notice. 5. The caps lock OSD popup which steal focus. It last a second, maybe two, and while it can interfere with typing (and train of thought) a bit, I think I can adjust. Numlock does the same, but you set it to be active at bootup and forget it.

Abe was great to deal with. Not only was he friendly and interesting to talk to, he also showed me how I could save some money and get better performance by changing my original configuration a tad. I would not hesitate to do business with him again.

"First and foremost I would like to say PowerNotebooks.com provides the best service and top notch products for excellent customers satisfaction.

I get replies even out of the companies normal working hours! I highly recommend choosing him as your sales rep. You won't be disappointed. PowerNotebooks.com will always be my place to go for High Quality products and service that can fit all my needs. I highly recommend them!"

"Ordered the ASUS N550JV-DB72 Gaming Laptop with the assistance of Abe. The reputation of the companies reps was not exaggerated. He was very informed and assisted me in narrowing down the laptop and capabilities to meet my needs. I was getting the laptop for a friend but when I received it and confirmed performance and configuration, I wanted to keep it. This one belongs to someone else but I will come back to PowerNotebooks for mine. The turn around time for my customizations and shipping was a surprise. They must have been building it while I was talking to them. Arrived quick with all necessary documents. I recommend this company!"

"Purchased a laptop through PowerNotebooks.com. Had a good experience. They were very thorough with my order and made sure how I built it was right. Any questions I had they answered the same day. I would purchase from them again and recommend them to others. Donald was who I dealt with and he was awesome."

"I called 2 other resellers for the MSI GT70 notebook I was looking at. While these folks were a little busy and had to call me back, I found them to be the most helpful and informative. The sales rep was knowledgeable and quite helpful. I also called tech support to ask a few "test questions" and they were equally rather informative. The product shipped out ahead of schedule and worked perfect. Prices were also good, not the cheapest, but fair. Would buy again. "

"Very happy with my Alienware 18. Great laptop for gaming. Donald did a outstanding job on helping me thru the mind bending maze that is computer shopping these days. Donald let me know what was important for the laptop I wanted. This way I was able to zero in on only the things I needed and not all the fluff they will try to sell you at the big box stores."

"Powernotebooks.com deserves 6/6 on a 5 scale rating.

CS, (Abe) not only educated me on current technology, but helped me get started on research, then rehashed everything later after I was armed with some knowledge. Not only did he set up my dream desktop and laptop purchase, but also coached me on modems, routers, external hdd enclosures... the works. Because of him, my home LAN is incredibly user friendly and better than ever; meanwhile, my WAN/ISP speed test are performing much better, than they were after contacting my ISP for help. Considering he only makes money off the PC sales, all the extra work is really appreciated. I'm used to calling other companies for support and they usually pass the buck; meanwhile, Powernotebooks.com volunteers to help.

As for the sale... I kept trying to spend too much money, while CS reps like Abe would try and talk me down! We priced out a total of 4 systems and each time more money was saved taking advice, rather than just filling out the specs myself. Not only that, but a new laptop (MSI Apache GE70) was due within a couple weeks and instead of just pushing off one of the currently available laptops, I was advised to wait and get all the features of interest instead of either current one while sacrificing features.

I called Tech Support and Scott, who had built our systems, was a great help answering questions, providing instructions for installing the GPU, and getting the laptop reset for setup when it was acting in an unexpected fashion.

The shipping and time from order to delivery was great too. Order was finalized on 15APR, and delivered on 24APR (7 business days). That is fantastic for two custom built systems. PN.com also padded and packaged the shipment extremely well... luckily this was the case, because the carrier was brutal.

PN.com is also on the ball with problem resolutions. The shipper/carrier dropped the container so hard, that a box inside was crushed so badly that the cardboard was splitting and ripping. No problem, PN.com just says to take photos of the box and contact them if the component is defective!

We are not first time customers. Our first purchase from PN.com was about 10 years ago, and that laptop is still doing great for being so old. If it wasn't for Windows XP being put out to pasture, it would still be a primary system in our house. Go Sager!

Powernotebooks.com truly deserves their A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. Hopefully they will still be going strong when I need new computers in 10 years for Windows 9 (or whatever it will be called).

I hate signing up at websites with a passion, but here I am actually setting up a login at ResellerRatings.com to gush about Powernotebooks.com!

"I went to PowerNotebooks.com after seeing its high ratings here, especially as opposed to Woot.com's which had a laptop I was considering. While the site's design and name appear suspiciously generic and unappealing, I can confirm that the customer service and prices are top notch. They're just as careful about selling as you should be about buying, and they actually require that you call in to confirm when paying with a credit card - but that's a good thing. The call was quick and easy and the representative was friendly. Throughout the entire purchasing and shipping process, there were constant email updates, alerting me to when the charges were actually made to my account, and when the order was placed, when the laptop was shipped, as well as a confirmation of my selected specs.
I never had a need to contact a representative directly, but when I sent them a thank you after receiving my laptop, the reply I received was swift and personalized. I highly recommend this site.

"In my opinion, PowerNotebooks is an excellent source for obtaining reasonably priced and fast, well-constructed gaming PCs. They (PowerNotebooks staff) offer to the customer the ability to purchase a customized PC, giving him or her the flexibility to select different models of CPU, amount and speed of RAM, model of graphics adapter, type and size of hard drive, and whether or not an operating system should be installed. The three or four variants of Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are offered.

Its staff is friendly, yet professional, and technically proficient. I have made two transactions with them, once in December 2012 and again in March 2014. Both times I received customer service from Mr. Donald Stratton. The first time, I ordered a Sager brand notebook. Minutes later, Mr. Stratton called me directly, explained that the particular model of Sager notebook I ordered was not in stock at the time, and guided me through the customization of a PowerNotebooks "PowerPro" laptop of similar specs and price.

The second order I made was also for a Sager laptop. This time, it was in stock and Mr. Stratton e-mailed me promptly, giving me updates for the laptop's ordering and shipment. I received it today and it works very well.
