Pros: Powerful and Fast
Plenty of I/O
Easy to swap out some components
Keyboard and touchpad are pretty good for a laptop
IPS Screen looks great
Cons: A little bit of bloatware in default install
No USB 2 (not an issue for everyone)
A bit big/bulky compared to some laptops
Other Thoughts: This thing is a beast of a laptop, in every sense of the word. It's big fir sure, but it feels durable as well. It's as powerful as most people would ever need and still manages to have great temps. In fact, the cooling is so good that you could actually overclock this laptop, which is all but unheard of.
It's got all the bells and whistles that one would expect from a high-tier gaming laptop, but does skip on a few things that may matter to some people (USB 2, namely, and only because I have a couple things that don't like USB 3), but otherwise, I couldn't ask for more
Pros: Extremely Durable
Compartments for everything laptop related
Not too big or heavy
Holds large laptops
Cons: Not so cheap...
Other Thoughts: In short, this thing is a tank. I often describe it as "so durable that if you punched it with a laptop inside, YOU'D be what would get hurt." It's well-made, well-padded, and has protection everywhere that matters. For transporting valuable electronics like a gaming laptop, keyboard, mouse, etc, I wouldn't trust anything less than this.
If you can afford it and have a larger laptop, you will probably be glad you bought htis.
Pros: USB3 Header
Plenty of other connectors
USB3 on rear panel
Logical, compact layout
Mostly neutral colors, so no need to go out of yoru way to match to a build color scheme
Cons: Not an Intel LAN adapter, but still good and reliable in my experience
No built-in WiFi
Other Thoughts: I've bought 3 of these boards and all have worked well without issue. No driver issues, no hardware failures, nothing - just a pleasant experience with the motherboards. If this has the features you need, this is a solid choice in my book.READ FULL REVIEW
