Pros: When operational it runs wonderfully, stays fairly cool and has no problem running what I throw at it.

Cons: I'm assuming it shipped with a graphics card or screen malfunction not exactly sure what's causing this.

Overall Review: I'm a daily gamer and typically play between 2-4 hours a night after work. Was extremely excited to catch a 3080 system at a price point that seemed reasonable even if it was a laptop. About a month after getting the laptop this rainbow type graphics malfunction occured at first in a small portion of the screen almost unnoticeable and has continued to grow. I'm not sure what it is I've reset the system a few times clean windows installs and upgraded all drivers and games I can. It's seemed to make no difference it'll run fine for hours at a time sometimes even multiple gaming sessions and play perfectly but then out of nowhere it'll mess up the display as you see in the picture above and I'm forced to reset. I didn't realize I needed to keep the original box in case of malfunction and in my unboxing excitement threw the original packaging away. Now I can't return and get a properly performing laptop and it's extremely frustrating because I've taken the proper steps on my end to try to fix the problem and I'm basically stuck with a barely functioning laptop after 3 months. I don't ever write critical reviews or anything like this but how a company can be so complacent when they shipped out a product that was not as advertised or functional is ridiculous. It's 22 almost 2300 bucks down the drain and I will never purchase from Newegg again.
