"Good benefit/cost ratio"

Kei Braz Sawada | 5 April 2020

  • Pros:
    Excellent gaming performance
  • Pros:
    Thin bezels (screen edges)
  • Pros:
    Many ports
  • Pros:
    Good resolution
  • Pros:
    Backlit keys
  • Con:
    Heavy
  • Con:
    Noisy when cooling is active
  • Con:
    Battery life is okay
  • Con:
    Camera is in a weird position (under screen)
  • Con:
    Energy adapter is heavy

I purchased this laptop for gaming, and have not been disappointed. The CPU and graphics card are both excellent and can run most games at 60 Hz and max settings. The design isn't amazing or over-the-top, but that's perfectly fine. Cons are the same as any other gaming laptop: heavy, potentially noisy (although you can configure it to be pretty silent at the cost of performance), and the battery life is only alright. The camera is under the screen instead of on top, which makes for a weird angle when Skyping, but it's not a huge issue. The energy adapter is heavy due to the laptop's high power consumption when gaming. Overall, it's a gaming laptop with a great benefit/cost ratio.
