Eurocom Electra 2 (GTX 850M) Review: Filling a gap around $800 price range gaming laptops

++ Main reason to consider:
GTX 850M + IPS display for $750-$850: combination not easily found for $800. Price with coupons should be around $750.

Pro:
+ Good gaming performance for $800 (though not the fastest)
+ 1080p IPS display (currently not available, wait few weeks)
+ Not getting too hot even under load.
+ Keyboard keys are rather comfortable.
+ Simple cleaner design (though not sophisticated like in premium laptops)
+ Additional mSata port
+ Easier to fix or upgrade then other laptops (CPU can be changed)
