Design

The laptop comes with a black chassis and a brushed metal lid to give it an edgy look. The red emblem on top gives it a nice unique look to it. It is ultra slim measuring at 1.02 inches and weighs 2,52 kg making it light to carry and fits well into a laptop bag.

The fans at the bottom help improve heat dissipation. It can get quite loud whilst being used but it is something you can get used to.

The sound speakers are placed at the bottom of the laptop. It comes with input ports, such as three USB ports, headphone, microphone, Ethernet, HDMI, and a USB-C.

Display

The laptop comes with a 15.6-inch 4K display that offers a slight degree of brightness. The maximum resolution reaches up to 1980×10804 offering full HD quality features and capabilities.

The laptop comes with an NVIDIA GeForce 1060 GTX graphics card that can run the latest gaming software. It offers the most cutting-edge graphics, with a 144Hz refresh rate which allows for smoother on-screen performance.

Keyboard and TouchPad

The laptop comes with a fully customizable backlit keyboard layout. The touchpad is large but is occasionally unresponsive even whilst gaming, so it is best to use a normal mouse instead.

Battery

The laptop falls short here, as it has a short battery life of up to 4 hours. It is best to keep a power adapter ready for long hours of gaming.
