4GB RAM and small battery hurt this notebook.

"The usability outdoors is not a big issue for a notebook like the P70 anyway. The weight, size and hardware make it far more suitable for desktop use, near a power outlet."

Balconies, those that have a garden are some of the uses for a 17" outside.

Where is a version with an HQ part? Why do we want to buy a non-gaming Haswell  laptop with a dGPU? Weird.

Notebookcheck: "we measure very high temperatures of 53.5 and 60.5o C. The air blown out of the case is rather hot and therefore it is not advisable to keep your hand next to the opening. The powerful hardware is the cause of these temperatures."
 
Other reviewers are noting Haswell laptops are running very dangerously hot and they must have good cooling or fans will be running high and noisy. 
 
The recent NBcheck review of Acer Aspire V3-772G noted it just about hit 99C during test and it is another example of dangerous hot temperature from Haswell CPUs.
