Affordable sturdy performance
Pros: - Affordable value - Less heat than expected (from reviews) - Construction appears to be sturdy - Capable game machine - Screen brighter than expected (from reviews) - Has a numeric keypad.
Cons: - Would have been better if SSD was larger or second ssd installed - Memory upgrade and adding second SSD appears simple but are not considered user serviceable.
Overall Review: - Recommend for moderate gaming and portable use. A bit heavy for frequent carrying. - The larger 17.3" screen is worth the case size (not much over a 15.6") and weight. - Happy with my purchase.
