Pros: - Lightweight
- Smooth non-glossy finish
- Powerful enough to run most games even some of the lesser optimized ones
- Keyboard has a solid almost mechanical feel to it
- While in casual use, the laptop is silent
- The cooling solutions seem to do an efficient job at dispersing heat
Cons: - The overabundance of stickers on the base of the laptop is a minor annoyance. There were three stickers placed below the keyboard
Overall Review: I did not review the specs of the system solely because they are no specific to this build. I focused more on the build quality of the product. The only other issue I had with the laptop is the positioning of the audio jack on the left rather than on the right. I wouldn't necessarily list that as a con because that is just a matter of preference. Lastly, I want to end on a personal note. My reasoning for purchasing this laptop was not to game on. I am a game developer, specifically focusing on level design. This means that I build levels and environments for games. Although I use my desktop to develop on primarily, it is still nice to have a laptop to demo my games from a remote location without breaking the bank. Some of my own test environments and games that were not optimized yet seemed to run quite well on this laptop.
Well, I hope this help someone with their decision. Have a nice day!
Cons: Terrible Io Shield
Caused my GPU to Stutter
Overall Review: After a month of use, my audio would sometimes not work or sound like it's underwater. 3 months later, it caused my GPU to stutter.
Has good io protection
Cons: None that I can think of!
Overall Review: I've had this motherboard before on one of the PC Builds I did. It works perfectly! So I'm buying another one!
