- Excellent performance. Good battery life when running on the built in graphics(can't expect battery life when the graphics card kicks in)
Screen is super sharp. Sound is fantastic, really impressive.
Keyboard backlight is nice.
- The screen bezel is quite large but nothing major.
Gets quite warm and noisy when the fans kick in with the graphics card. Nothing worse than other gaming laptops.
Fairly heavy at around 3kg but par for the course with a 17" gaming laptop. Fits nicely in the evecase 17" laptop backpack I bought still.
Overall the negatives can be easily overlooked and if they were a sticking point then a gaming laptop isn't the right choice for you.
