Incredible board for a questionable platform
Pros: Managed to not melt with a 5GHz a10-6800k overclock! Managed stable performance with 2400MHz DDR3 Beastly overclocker
Cons: Terrible platform even when it was new No upgrade path other than overclocking
Overall Review: I wish the whole APU thing went better but at least we have Ryzen now.
Crashes constantly in games even at low temps
Pros: Cheap, good specs
Cons: Crashes in the middle of games rendering it useless.
Overall Review: I wanted to like this laptop, but, despite the amazing price and specs, it just freezes and restarts constantly when under a combined cpu and gpu load like gaming, no blue screen, nothing in the logs to tell me what went wrong. It crashes despite temps being reasonable.
Solid Performance, needs an HDD and runs hot, though
Pros: Performs solidly in all the games I throw at it Really nice price for an i7 8750H and a GTX 1060
Cons: Runs Pretty hot Needs storage upgrades badly
Overall Review: This laptop performs great, despite the high temps it reaches it never crashes or turns off on its own. There was nothing wrong with it despite it being a refurb, only one small on the palm rest next to the touch pad.
