Near Perfect, Except Port Placement and Webcam Driver
Pros: Very powerful for the price. 2 NVME slots for a second SSD. Slim and Lightweight 60+ FPS on pretty much anything 1080p.
Cons: Port placement makes right handed mouse use a challenge Webcam driver has a weird issue where you cant turn on the webcam and have to shut down and hold the power button for 7 seconds. Maybe the issue will be resolved in the future. Battery length is a bit short when GPU is not being used. Screen is a bit of an underwhelming quality
Overall Review: A very powerful laptop at a great price however not perfect. The port placement can make using a mouse near impossible without getting snagged on wires in a confined spot and the webcam driver has a weird issue that is a brief hassle to fix. It plays pretty much anything 1080p 60fps and has rock solid performance. Rare stutters with intense power usage and everything runs like a dream. I would absolutely buy this laptop again despite the 4 stars. But the issues with the webcam and the port placement may be a deal breaker for some, especially if you're gonna be using this bad boy for work, too.
Great, cheap, powerful laptop
Pros: Sleek, sexy design, extremely powerful for the price, dual graphics, quad-core, google chrome already installed. Useful, yet minimal bloatware. Really loud and good sounding speakers, they go as low as 200hz and the highs arnt bad either.Even tho I got it when it was $500, this laptop cant be beat for the $50 more.
Cons: So far I havn't found anything, except I have the feeling the stainless steel finish will scratch/smudge easily. And even tho I think it's unique and sexy, the laptop has a very slight purple color in certain lighting that you should know about. But personally I think it makes it look great.
Overall Review: I was originally going to purchase a desktop for the processing power but when I saw this deal I bought this. I don't regret it at all. Best bang for your buck.
